Seasonal temperature changes often demand an immediate reaction - particularly in an outdoor environment. We recognise the significance of upholding productivity during a cold snap, especially when food stock and crops are involved. At Andrews we possess the UK’s most expansive range of adaptable heaters for hire suitable for all types of fields and pastures.

We have worked with farmers nationwide and developed an appreciation of why heating is crucial for the wellbeing of livestock, crops and plants. Specific temperatures are needed to ensure healthy production, and often agriculturalists are competing with the elements which can hinder the overall process.

Our aim is to help keep farms fully functional throughout periods of adverse weather and ensure the optimum temperature is attained, whatever the task at hand. We offer competitive hire packages which negate the need for purchase, thus providing a cost-effective solution to your problem. Not only will we supply and install your unit, we also offer a thorough back up service throughout the duration of rental.

In order to accelerate crop drying processes, our portable heaters are often used to provide additional warm air or replace broken down heating systems. Air drying is obviously a lot more efficient when heaters are used to assist and this helps to speed up water removal by evaporation. By utilising a heating unit, the practise of drying is much quicker than if produce was allowed to dry naturally.

At Andrews Heat for Hire we aim to keep farms operating at full capacity and prevent any aspect of its running from dropping below normal output levels. Crop drying is one of the most energy- intensive procedures that occur in this environment, so we understand the importance of having a reliable and continued heat source.
