The solution

This type of construction is distinguished by a large open concept area with lots of doors and a high ceiling. As such, the heating, air conditioning and ventilation systems are strategically de-signed to serve every area of the building. Rooftop units ventilate and heat the central area, vertical furnaces heat areas near the doors, air heaters or infrared units warm shipping docks and a tankless water heater supplies hot water.

Optimal solution set-up

1- Rooftop unit
  • Decentralized ventilation system
  • Efficient heating of open air central zones
  • Modulating options
2- Vertical furnace
  • Easy and direct fitting to the ventilation system
  • Flexible (can be combined to the air conditioning and humidifier system)
3- Infrared
  • Economical, its use can generate annual savings ranging from 25% to 35%
  • Recommended for better comfort in highly ventilated areas with high ceilings
  • Compared to the electric infrared, the natural gas infrared offers a large range of power from 15,000 Btu/h to 200,000 Btu/h
4- Tankless water heater
  • Requires little space
  • Energy savings ranging from 10 to 40% annually compared to a storage water heater
  • Lifespan that can exceed 20 years
