Heat furnaces are among one of the most expensive investments a business owner is likely to make. To complicate matters, buyers can choose from a variety of heating options, including induction melting furnaces, outdoor wood furnaces or the more traditional oil, gas or electric furnaces.
Furnaces can be purchased from a variety of sources; make sure you choose a dealer who is reputable and can also service your furnace in the future. Consider their customer service policies, the length of time they've been in business and how well they stand behind their product before you make such a large financial purchase.
1. Consider a variety of types before you buy industrial furnace products.
2. Purchase your heat furnace from a reputable dealer.
3. Select a heating and cooling system capable of servicing the size of your business.
Think outside of the gas furnaces or electric furnace box before you buyMost people know about gas furnaces and are familiar with the electric furnaces, but you have other choices as well. Consider the more unusual industrial incinerator or an oil furnace as an option. The more choices you have when you make this decision, the happier you'll likely be when you finalize your purchase.
Do business with reputable dealersAsk your furnace dealer for a list of references and check those references to insure continued satisfaction of the product and the service. Choose dealers who stand behind their product and offer hassle-free customer service and repair policies.
Select a heat treating furnace large enough for the size of your businessYou'll need to know the cubic feet or the square feet of the area you want to heat before you select a heat treating furnace. If you opt for a unit that's too small, it's going to run nearly non-stop and the air temperature will rarely reach a comfortable level. Whether you're heating an office space or a large warehouse, you'll want your employees to be comfortable so they remain productive.
- Contact your local utilities company to see if it offers rebates for replacing an older and less efficient heat furnace with a new furnace that is rated as an Energy Star appliance.
