PRLog - Jan. 24, 2013 - HICKSVILLE, N.Y. -- Temporary heat in Manhattan has its’ own unique challenges. Diesel fuel has Fire Marshall implications, electric heat can be a problem since often power is not available in the quantities required and may be the wrong voltage, natural gas has pressure issues and exhaust fumes are a consideration.
Air Handler Rental uses steam for temporary heat
Most buildings have steam heating systems, with the steam being provided either from a central boiler plant that is also used for absorption chillers, or, steam is provided by Con-Ed. On Site Energy offers 20 ton handlers, which can utilize a buildings existing steam or hot water infrastructure, avoiding all of the pitfalls of temporary electric, oil, or gas fired heaters. 20 ton air handlers are also very portable, being on heavy duty caster wheels, they fit in elevators and through standard doorways. Finally, 20 ton air handlers use variable speed drives, allowing the air flow to be balanced with the building’s needs.
Case in point…the Waldorf Astoria hotel is of course a world famous landmark building, located on Park Avenue in New York City. In the heart of New York City, any construction project taking place has challenges. Generators are difficult to place, there is zero tolerance for fuel storage, and exhaust fumes simply are not allowed. The Waldorf does however have a steam heating system, which was kept available during a major renovation. On Site Energy’s 20 ton air handlers were rolled into place and running within 24 hours of delivery. Even with doors constantly being opened for construction work, the 20 ton air handlers provided more than adequate amounts of heat for the project. Since the air handlers do not burn any fossil fuel, no permits of any kind were required.
Many college and pharmaceutical campuses, sewage treatment plants, large train and subway stations, and large buildings have central physical plants which can utilize existing steam or hot water networks to provide temporary space heating.
