Benefits of a natural gas heating unit for construction sites

Also called a “salamander” or “ torpedo”, the natural gas heating unit for construction sites enables a building under construction to be heated so work can continue regardless of seasonal cold temperatures. Even if your project does not use natural gas as its permanent source of energy, you can still use it to power a heating unit for your construction site1, sparing you all the inconveniences of having to use propane tanks.
