At Andrews Heat for Hire, we fully understand the importance of keeping stock, produce or equipment at specific temperatures in order to avoid damage and deterioration. We can help create and maintain the desired environment for your goods and ensure your warehouse is suitably heated throughout. With a wealth of experience in this field, we have the expertise and the equipment to satisfy your independent requirements.

In addition to having a wide range of heaters available for hire, we also provide an extensive range of dehumidification products. These are designed for warehouses that store delicate materials that could be damaged by cold or damp conditions. By using a combination of temporary heaters and dehumidifiers from Andrews, we can keep your storage area warm and dry.

Big doors constantly opening and closing to facilitate easy access can make temperature control within your warehouse very difficult to implement. Without a warm, dry environment, you’re not only risking your stock, but also the wellbeing of your staff. We possess the largest fleet of portable, temporary heaters in the UK ranging from small, electric models to high capacity industrial units - best-suited to this type of building. In some cases large warehouse facilities only require heating to specific areas, such as packing areas, for such applications our portable quartz heaters provide the ideal solution. These units are able to provide cost effective spot heating within large areas.

At certain times of the year temporary storage facilities are often needed to meet seasonal demand or peak production requirements. Andrews Heat for Hire have over 40 years of experience in providing heating solutions to temporary storage structures for products such as sugar, tea, coffee, cereals, metal products, electronic components, powders and many more.

Having devised packages for numerous warehouse facilities in the past, we pledge to design and install a system tailored to your needs within hours of hearing from you. We guarantee to provide an effective solution to you heating issues and our expert consultants will professionally guide you through your enquiry.

Heating within a storeroom is arguably the most important variable to regulate - especially when the contents are perishable or easily damaged. Outside elements - particularly cold weather - can have a massive impact on the interior of your premises, but this can easily be countered with heating units. We endeavour to prevent valuable products and apparatus from being damaged by ensuring your depot is sufficiently warmed.

At Andrews, we aim to keep stores in operation and act quickly if you encounter a problem with your heating system. We understand the implications of clients dropping below normal output levels, so act quickly to limit the chance of costs or repercussions. If your system breaks down unexpectedly, we can assist you with procuring a viable replacement - and even oversee installation if required.

With a network of 30 depots strategically placed nationwide, we aim to service your site instantly - regardless of your location. We offer a no obligation site survey to ascertain the best course of action, where our expert engineers will advise which equipment is most suitable. Alternatively, you may be planning preventative maintenance in the future and this is also something we can assist with.

In warehouses or storage areas, there are often mini factions that require certain temperatures - depending on what is being stocked. Localised heat sources are designed to provide warmth to parts of a large room without the need for central heating. This technique can be employed to heat people working on site, without drastically affecting the temperature of the whole vicinity. By creating this microclimate, you can accommodate what is sometimes a delicate balance between the comfort of staff and preservation of stock.

We specialise in providing temporary heaters across your sector with our compact electric, gas-fired and oil-fired units - ensuring all requirements can be met. Our competitors cannot match our broad range of products, nor our unique guarantee to be on your site within four hours. We will even recommend which heater is most apposite to your situation and design a solution which could save hundreds of pounds.

Whether you’re looking for an urgent system replacement after a breakdown or future maintenance on your current heater, our expert contact team will guide you towards a solution. For dependable, safe heat for hire delivered to any location in the UK, call 0800 211 611. Alternatively you can complete an enquiry form and one of our experts will quickly respond to you.
