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.

How to kill the chill this winter: Office Tactics

During the months of autumn and winter, the drastic change in weather can have an adverse effect on the mind and body, leaving our mood and ability to concentrate in a deficient state.
