The benefits of electric heating
Electric heating is often considered to be expensive. This is a common misconception, electric heating is controllable, clean and efficient.

Typical applications of Activair fan heaters
Activair fan heaters have been successfully used for many years in industry, agriculture and horticulture. They are ideal for space heating, frost protection and condensation control in commercial and industrial buildings, factories, warehouses, workshops, glasshouses etc.

Calculating the size of heater needed
To determine the size of Activair fan heater needed, the heat loss from the building must be calculated. This is determined by the size and construction of the building, and temperature lift required.

Controlling Activair ACE fan heaters
Activair fan heaters are designed for permanent installation. They require external thermostats and electrical switchgear. Activair supplies thermostats and control panels containing everything necessary to complete the installation.

Installing Activair ACE fan heaters
Activair fan heaters can be wall mounted, suspended overhead or used free standing. To ensure optimum air distribution careful positioning is important.

Accessories for Activair ACE fan heaters
In larger buildings efficient air distribution is difficult. By using Activair polythene ducting, flexible ducting or metal ductwork, air mixing is improved and running costs significantly reduced.

Warm air heating for commercial buildings
Activair fan heaters are specifically designed for space heating in factories, workshops and warehouses. They are often installed to provide supplementary heating as in this case study. 

Heating green houses and glasshouses
Horticultural heating has its own unique difficulties and problems to overcome. Humidity is high, temperatures can fall below freezing at night and to above 30 degrees centigrade in the daytime. Temperature control must be accurate with minimal temperature gradients.

Condensation control using Activair heaters
Gas fired heaters produce water vapour as a by-product of combustion. Activair electric fan heaters produce no moisture, making them ideal for condensation control in plant rooms and crop storage.
