We have developed a close relationship with many education establishments across the UK. Our large depot network allows us to deliver an assortment of fully portable, safe compact heaters to education organisations including schools, colleges and universities. With dozens of years’ experience in the provision of fume-free warmth for all locations, we have the capacity and stock to placate your requirements.

In cold weather conditions we help to keep schools open, even when their heating systems have broken down, by providing temporary heating - at competitive hire rates. We pride ourselves on not only delivering our units on the same day, but also on giving our customers value for money. Our Specialist hire division offer a range boiler hire units that can be installed within a few hours of arriving on site, to replace failed heating systems or just to cover boiler breakdowns.

We work with educational institutes nationwide, developing and installing heating hire packages subject to specific conditions. Whether you require emergency breakdown assistance or a planned response to seasonal temperature changes, we can assist. With 30 depots spanning the UK, we can be relied upon to provide a fast, professional service and dispatch all necessary equipment, often within 4 hours of receiving your order.

Appropriate heating levels within classrooms and school libraries are paramount for both the teachers and pupils who occupy them. Education Regulations stipulate that all schools must have heating systems capable of maintaining a minimum temperature of 18 oC, when rooms and classrooms are in use. A comfortable temperature within classrooms and laboratories is essential in order to preserve a warm and secure working environment.

Health and safety protocol may require teachers to withdraw themselves and their pupils from classrooms which do not meet the expected physical condition requirements. System faults can occur on virtually any site, and when they do, Andrews Heat for Hire is here to help. We have the expertise and know-how to restore cold classrooms back to functional workplaces, keeping schools fully operational during periods of upheaval.

Our extensive range of heaters ensures we can provide an immediate solution to your heating problems. In recent years, we have worked with numerous schools requiring urgent maintenance in order to keep them open. With pupils enduring such intense curriculums, it is crucial that classrooms are sufficiently heated to facilitate their continued study. Should you experience a breakdown of your system, contact us; one of our technicians will conduct a no obligation site survey to ascertain your exact requirements.

Universities - like schools and other education centres - need a fully functional heating system, particularly during the winter months. The sheer number of people on campus and in lecture halls necessitates large, warm buildings for them to live and study. Lecturers and students are not obliged to remain on university premises if they are not sufficiently heated, and this could have serious implications for its continued running.

At Andrews Sykes, we specialise in supplying temporary commercial heaters to all business sectors, within hours of opening contact. We vow to provide reliable and safe heat for hire throughout the year, with our strategically-placed depots covering all parts of the UK. Our range of portable units uphold the highest industry standards, and are available for sale and rental.

We will even advise you on which heater is most appropriate for your precise circumstances, and devise a system to save you money and time. Whether you’re simply planning maintenance and upkeep, or immediately require a solution to an emergency fault, we can help. We have thousands of heaters in stock at all times and guarantee to instantly dispatch the equipment you need. Call us on 0800 211 611 to discuss your options, or complete an enquiry form where one of our experts will get in touch.
