    Howya Folks
    I'm trying to figure out the best way to heat a medium sized factory
    , 30m by 40m with 12m ceiling , its basically a small warehouse
    converted to suit our expanded production,cuurently we have gas fired
    forced air heaters but we are looking for a system with less manual
    interaction and preferably elevated , can anybody recommend a cost
    effective system thast easy to install and cheap to run
    Cheers

    Use big big blocks of Ice. Everyone will then wear big Parka's and you
    wont need to use heat.

    sheesh only a sparky would think that....

    he said he had gas, so the correct answer is gas infrared.

    OK.. OK... I missed the 'gas' part.

    If you've got gas in the building, gas infrared is a much better
    choice... with lots of zoning for any infrared.

    Hey Jake
    i was looking at infrared , we have a low air flow in the factory ,
    what exactly do you mean by zoning , and why is gas better , we were
    possibly looking at moving away from gas

    Small thermo-nuclear weapon.

    Whats cheaper over there 80% effiecient gas or electricity.

    Gas fired infrared be a failry economical installation, cheaper than
    multiple unit heaters I would suppose.

    Thats almost a 40 ft ceiling, if the place was a little bigger area
    wise I would almost think of air turn over units
