DOE Demonstrates HTHV Technology in HVAC Distribution Warehouse

Because unit heaters and other non-centralized heating products offer low upfront cost and easy installation, HVAC contractors and building owners commonly use these systems in warehouses, distribution centers, multi-line retail, garages, and other large, high-bay facilities. But, these building types often pose unique design considerations that result in increased energy consumption for space heating – primarily thermal stratification and loading dock door infiltration.

To better understand the thermal performance and potential energy savings of a new, direct-fired heating technology, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) conducted a field test at a warehouse outside of St. Louis, Missouri.
