Cold weather slows down productivity and can even shut down an entire event or job site. At Durante Rentals, we rent, sell and service all types of industrial-strength portable heaters to keep your workers and work environment warm, comfortable, and productive.
Our large fleet of portable heaters is intended for both indoor and outdoor use. Uses range from heating workshops and construction sites, drying paint and adhesives, thawing pipes and equipment, tent and special event heating, curing concrete, heating garages, patios, and porches.
We carry radiant, infrared, forced air, and electric space heaters ranging from 5,100 BTU’s to 500,000 BTU’s. Most of our industrial heaters run on diesel, kerosene, or no. 1 or no. 2 fuel oil. Tank capacities range from 2.6 gallons to 42 gallons, allowing for 5 to 16 hours of continuous heating. We also carry electric space heaters. Ask one of our knowledgeable rentals coordinators which one is right for you.
Radiant vs. Infrared vs. Forced Air vs. Electric Space Heaters
Radiant Heaters – Radiant heaters transfer heat from an emitting heat source to an object, similar to how the sun heats. They warm people and other objects in rooms rather than directly heating the air.
Infrared Heaters – Infrared heaters use electromagnetic radiation to warm by transferring energy from a source with a higher temperature to a lower temperature source. No contact between the two sources is necessary for heat transfer.
Forced Air Heaters – Forced Air heaters are the most common type of portable heaters. They use air as the heat transfer medium. These units are especially cost-efficient.
Electric Space Heaters – Electric Space heaters are heaters that come in a self-contained device for heating an enclosed area. They are usually 120V, so they can easily plug into any wall outlet.
