As a business owner you aim to maximise the resources you have at hand. Unfortunately the alfresco area has been underutilised by many businesses, with colder weather often meaning the area won’t reach its full potential. If you’re ready to make the investment into outdoor heating for your business, here are 4 factors you should take into consideration:
1. Floor maximisation
Heaters can be wall and ceiling mounted or floor units. While the floor units are not as expensive they take up floor space which means less room for customers. Wall mounted units are not available for everyone with the need for wiring and plumbing for most units, however a well thought out floor plan can minimise wasted floor space while providing maximum heating.
The safety of customers and employees should be the top priority of business owners, selecting the right heating for your space can reduce possible risk. Your greatest threat is the weather, with high winds being able to knock over units, which can be fire hazard’s and act as projectiles. Wall and ceiling mounted units are the safer options with less chance of them being thrown around by wind.
A heating unit should maintain the aesthetic appeal of your business; because customers take into account everything when judging an establishment. Over recent years heating producers have caught onto this and have started to not only create effective heaters but also aesthetic ones, but this must be a expense that you are willing to dig a little deeper for.
When making decision for the business you must consideration if you are expecting short or long term benefits. Your heating solution will be no different; you can either install a low range product that will cost more to maintain or a higher end product that will require less maintenance, so you must think carefully if paying that little bit more will be worth it to you.
