FAQs about Ground Heaters
How do ground heaters work?
- Ground heaters employ a system of hoses that carry heated fluid. The hoses are laid across the full area that needs heating. A warming catalyst (such as a boiler) then heats the fluid mixture, and the mixture is then pumped through the hoses, which emit heat to the ground.
What size ground heater do I need?
- The size of the ground heater will be dependent upon the size of the area that needs to be heated and the amount of time for which that area needs to receive heat. When selecting a heating option, also remain conscious of the heater’s strength and capabilities (i.e., thawing frozen ground, preventing frost accumulation or protecting the structural composition of the material being heated).
Are there any hazards associated with the use of ground heaters?
- As with any tool, it’s always best to use caution when utilizing a heater. Ensure equipment instructions are followed as prescribed. If there appears to be any problem with the function of the heater or an adverse reaction to the jobsite, it’s always wise to immediately halt equipment use.
