Seattle isn’t the North Pole, but it can certainly get its fair share of bad weather from time to time. When the temperature outside starts to drop, the working conditions for certain kinds of businesses can become difficult for employees to handle. A warm employee is a happy employee and a warm and happy employee will likely work harder and more efficiently for your company.
Here are some reasons why you might want to invest in a portable heater for your business today.
Keep Your Warehouse Employees Comfortable
If you own a retail or industrial business that uses a large warehouse to store and manage inventory or supplies, you likely have more than a few employees walking from one end of the warehouse to the other on any given day. If your warehouse is especially large with a high ceiling, central heating might not be the best option from a financial standpoint.
Why spend money to heat the entire warehouse if employees won’t actually be in certain sections except for when they are moving products around? Instead, simply install a space heater or two near the areas where employees are most likely to congregate.
Stay Warm on the Construction Site
Construction is hard work but it can be especially brutal if you are expected to complete a project when the weather gets chilly. With the help of a portable generator and a space heater, you can keep your construction workers nice and toasty on the job, even while they are standing outside. After all, it’s difficult to complete construction work when you can’t feel your hands.
Keep your employees comfortable and working hard all winter long and you’ll keep your projects running on time.
Lower Your Office Energy Bill
Of course, you don’t have to be working outdoors to benefit from a portable heater. Such a heater could also be a great solution for those who work in a large office building. If there are certain areas of the building that are only used for storage or for large group meetings, there’s clearly no need to keep your central heating system circulating heat to those locations 24/7.
Consider closing up the vents or ducts in these locations to keep your heating bill down and invest in a portable heater or two instead. If you know there is a meeting or an inventory count coming up in a location without active central heat, break out the portable heaters and you’ll keep everyone warm and focused on the job at hand.
Loss of Power Doesn’t Mean Loss of Heat
Even if your employees all work indoors and your central heating keeps you comfortable all day, it still might be a good idea for you to invest in a portable heater or two.
If your area has experienced blackouts or power outages in the past, it can give you peace of mind to know that you have a backup plan ready to go if the central heating goes down. Plug in your trusty portable generator and portable heater and you’ll keep everyone feeling comfortable until the power comes back on.
If you work in retail or some other customer-facing business, a portable heater could also help keep your potential customers browsing your goods and services instead of bailing on you because it’s simply too cold.
A portable heater can be a godsend for many different types of situations when you own a business. Whether your employees work outdoors or inside a cavernous warehouse, it’s likely they will appreciate the boss’s efforts to help keep them warm and comfortable as they go about their day.
