Open Air Heating Soloutions

Posted on November 29, 2015 at 11:30 pm

Outdoor heating is used regularly by businesses and home owners alike. The ability to remain warm whatever the temperature outside allows outdoor spaces to be used all year round.

There are many different heating systems available. The size of the area that needs to be heated will have a big effect on what heating system will be required.

Sometimes and depending on where you live, the temperature outside gets too low even for the best outdoor heaters. In this circumstance the heaters will struggle to keep even a small area warm, rendering them useless.

But most of the time heaters will comfortably keep an area warm, allowing it to be used whatever the temperature.

Heaters are also great in the rain. While it may not be the cold that is of the greatest concern, the comfortable heat is still a welcome luxury in the unfavourable conditions.

Lighting the Space Beneath the Roof

Posted on November 1, 2015 at 12:22 am

There are two ways to go about roof lighting. The first option is to use electric lights inside the building. The second is to use roof windows which utilise natural light to illuminate the rooms inside.

There are advantages to using either option. Electric lights are manually operated, bringing light into a room whenever it is needed. You also have the option of adding brighter or dimmer lights, which will suit different purposes for whatever the room is used for.

Roof windows are used as they use natural light, which is the most effective and energy efficient way to bring light into a room. With roof windows you also have the added ability to ventilate the room inside.
