Check Suitability of a TX heater for your Area

The following data applies to all standard models in the TX range.  Before selecting a specific model you should check that the heater is suitable for the environment.  We also suggest that you download and read the TX instructions.

If the standard heaters are not suitable, please contact our Customer Service Department to discuss the options available.

Selecting a Specific Heater

TX heaters are suitable for maintaining background heat or comfort heat in industrial buildings.

In simple terms the output of the TX 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

Heat Calculator

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.

Having established the minimum kW output required, select the minimum number of heaters needed to meet the kW requirement.

The use of TXG safety guards is always recommended where personnel can access the heaters.
