Heater Hire

Divine intervention from Andrews Sykes keeps Soul Church warm!

Churches are notoriously difficult to heat because of their high ceilings and stone walls and floors, with older, traditional buildings posing a particular challenge as far as maximising energy efficiency is concerned.

In an attempt to get the most out of their HVAC system, a recent client of ours turned to us for some temporary heating equipment while their existing arrangement was being upgraded.

Our local expert was on site barely an hour after we were first contacted by the customer, who explained the difficulties they had been having with overcoming the cold weather.

High capacity heating arrangement aids hotel building fit-out

With a new hotel in Croydon said to be just a few months away from opening, the construction company responsible for the project turned to us for a temporary heating solution. Their requirement stemmed from the need to complete the interior fit-out as quickly as possible, which was being made more difficult by the unfavourably cold conditions.

Our client had arranged for various sub-contractors to visit the location and undertake timber works, joinery, plastering and floor laying, so it was critical that the temperature and humidity levels of the building were conducive to these tasks.

High capacity heater used to dry out building mid-construction

Although a small quantity of moisture is necessary for some materials to cure correctly during a building’s construction, excessive dampness can pose a serious long-term issue. In fact, high humidity levels can create major problems for a contractor, including delays to finishing and materials being damaged.

Of course, during the winter months, the scope for additional obstacles is heightened by the fact that open structures are exposed to the elements.

This is quite a common occurrence, particularly at this time of year, and we’ve been busy working with customers to ensure the effects of recent rainfall are minimised. One of our clients is currently in the process of constructing a new car showroom and office complex for a world-famous luxury car manufacturer.

Television and warmth crucial to a good night in, survey finds

The perfect cosy night in includes watching something on the telly, pizza for dinner and good company.

Brits also say they try to create their very own perfect night as often as 12 nights a month – with 79 per cent doing so more commonly during the winter.

Spending quality time with partners, getting to wear cosy pyjamas and not caring about personal appearance were all cited as being key components of cosiness.

While the study of 2,000 adults found the darkness and cold of the season are the main reasons people are staying in, 36 per cent admit to keeping their wits about them due to the new Omicron strain.

The client indicated that their preference would be to deploy electrical units, if at all possible, in order to avoid the scenario of equipment needing to be refuelled further down the line.

Andrews Heat for Hire responds to hangar boiler failure

An airport located in the South East was forced to find a temporary solution following the disastrous failure of their ageing boiler system. Temporary equipment was urgently required to keep workers warm and ensure the continuous running of daily operations until a permanent boiler replacement could be sourced.

The size and scale of the average hangar makes them notoriously difficult to heat in a cost-effective manner, as pointed out by the client. Essentially, they were looking for a short-term source of heating that could deliver large volumes of warm air economically while their boiler system was out of action. Large numbers of people work inside the hangar each day, ranging from mechanics, transport staff, strategists and cleaners. The working environment is therefore extremely important, with low temperatures a potential safety issue.
