Portable Air and Power offers a full range of temporary heaters and dehumidification equipment to take the “chill” out of any situation. From heating a building under construction to office or warehouse space, we have the right equipment to get the job done quickly and efficiently. Direct fired heaters are available from 70,000 – 4,000,000 BTU, utilizing natural gas, propane or fuel oil. Indirect fired heaters are available from 100,000 to 1,000,000 BTU, using natural gas, propane or fuel oil. Electric heaters are available from 10 kW to 100 kW, utilizing 240 volt single phase to 480 volt three phase.
MANUFACTURING and INDUSTRIAL
When it’s critical to keep an area warm, Portable Air and Power has the products and expertise to “bring the heat”! Whether you’re trying to keep employees warm or maintain a constant temperature for a process, Portable Air and Power designs and installs a system that is both cost efficient and performs to satisfaction. Make-up air heaters, electric heaters, package Heat Pumps or Boilers paired with Air Handlers, can be used to heat large production areas or manufacturing process critical areas.
Equipment failures in commercial office buildings can not only cause “unhappy” tenants, but can jeopardize critical components of the building’s structure. Portable Air and Power has the temporary solution to restore your tenants comfort, as well as, protecting vital Sprinkler Systems and water pipes from freezing during an equipment failure. For Property Managers needing to protect “Empty” properties, Portable Air and Power specializes in utilizing minimal utilities, while protecting vital components and finishes of warehouse and office space.
Temporary heat for buildings under construction can be extremely “tricky”. Many factors need to be considered when trying to heat and dehumidify a structure during the construction phase. Envelope “tightness”, insulation “R” values of installed structural components, Air movement patterns, available fuel sources, including electricity amperage, and LEEDS accreditation, are just a few of the necessary considerations when designing a temporary heating system. Portable Air and Power has endless experience and excellent equipment to design and install temporary heating systems for any structure type. Call us for high rises and single story classrooms that require constant temperature and relative humidity. Our customer’s bottom line is always our priority.
SPECIAL EVENTS and STUDIO PRODUCTION
Tents pose extreme challenges to heat during “bitter” cold temperatures. With heat design, not only is “air leakage” a factor, but ground conditions, tent orientation and internal heat sources, as well. Temporary heat for Studio Productions poses additional challenges. Large internal heat loads from lighting create “cold spots” in other areas of the set, which can making working conditions tough for personnel. Equipment noise can cause problems for sound technicians if not properly managed. Proper consideration of all of these potential variables must be taken during the design and installation process. Following careful equipment selection, Portable Air and Power coordinates with production personnel (during installation) to prevent these problems.
THERMAL PEST REMEDIATION
Growing concerns of the use of pesticides in the environment and the increasing resistance of pests to pesticides has made Thermal Remediation a viable alternative in recent years. Portable Air and Power can supply many different equipment packages to pest control specialists, property managers, universities and hotel/motel owners to combat pest problems at a fraction of the cost of chemical treatments. Depending on the type of pests, temperatures are raised accordingly to compensate for specific time required to kill all life stages of the pest, from egg to adult. Advantages of heat treatment over chemical treatment are as follows:
- Shorter treatment times with less downtime
- Cost effective
- Immediate results
- Environmentally friendly
- Extensive coverage into all cracks and crevices
- Kills all stages
