In simple terms the output of the installed OUH3 industrial fan heater or heaters must be greater than the heat losses from the building during periods of cold weather. A small amount of heat is lost through the walls, ceilings and floors with more significant losses through windows and doors.
To estimate the heat loss from your building you may like to use our heat loss tool
The estimated heat loss figure is the absolute minimum kW output that you should consider installing. We would suggest adding approximately 50% to this figure to allow for an acceptable warm up time in cold conditions as well as making allowances for exceptional weather conditions and possible errors in the original data used in the estimate.
Once the target kW has been estimated it is generally as simple as selecting the minimum quantity of heater required to provide that output. Select from the following table.
|230V or 400V/3N
For perfect heat distribution the combined air volume flow rate of the selected heaters should also be considered. Ideally the total air volume processed by the heaters every hour should be at least four times the total air volume in the building. In some cases therefore, you may choose to select a larger number of lower output heaters in order to increase the total quantity of air processed every hour.
When using OUH3 industrial fan heaters in a building with a roof height in excess of 4m, the installation of a DSU3 destratification unit is strongly recommended. This device will recycle warm air that has accumulated at high level thereby reducing heating bills by up to 30%. It should also be noted that DSU3 destratification units provide very high air volume flow rates and often enable the ‘four times total air volume’ target to be achieved without needing to consider additional heaters.
