Unit Heaters are often used in commercial or industrial applications, but homeowners in Regina, SK typically use them in shops and garages to reduce engine wear and tear caused by cold starts, to store paint and chemicals safely without threat of freezing, and to stay warm while working with tools on projects or performing vehicle maintenance. Because garage unit heaters are usually hung from the ceiling in the corner of the space, you don’t need to give up any square footage that could otherwise be devoted to shop equipment and storage.
Unit heaters are a common choice when installing a gas appliance to provide garage heat. While unit heaters do require a gas line and chimney (usually side wall vented), they require no ductwork. They blow air at a downward angle to provide good mixing of temperature during operation. Unlike furnaces, unit heaters are made to work in subzero temperatures. Unit heaters are rated in British thermal units, or BTUs. Garage and shop unit heaters are available in sizes from 30,000 to 300,000 BTUs.
Our shop and garage heater installations in Regina, SK are quiet, thermostat-controlled, durable, reliable, and offer industry leading performance efficiencies in a compact design, perfect for applications where space is limited.
ADP gas-fired unit heaters and duct furnaces deliver between 80% and 82% thermal efficiency. This excellent efficiency sets a new standard when using gas-fired unit heaters and duct furnaces.
ADP heater designs have proven superior for over a decade and during hundreds of thousands of hours in the toughest winter climates of North America and under extreme conditions in laboratory life cycle testing. ADP unit heaters and duct furnaces have been designed to provide a long, trouble free service life.
Every heater undergoes continuous quality checks at all stages of manufacturing. After assembly, each heater is test fired and functionally tested to provide final assurance that it is performing in accordance with ADP’s rigorous quality standards.
All ADP heaters are built in the USA in an ISO 9001:2008 facility. The rating plate of each heater carries the mark signifying that the heater is design certified by CSA. In addition, the heater series is listed by the California Energy Commission (CEC).
ADP unit heaters feature a standard 2-year limited warranty. For FOA, FSA, and SEP Series, the warranty provides extended coverage on aluminized heat exchangers for 10 years. For SEP Series, the warranty provides extended coverage on stainless steel heat exchangers for 15 years.
In Shot Burners
These lightweight aluminized steel burners are maintenance-free and never require adjustment. The burner venturi mixes air and gas in the correct proportion for efficient combustion. The entire burner assembly is removable as one piece for ease of service.
Tubular Heat Exchangers
Constructed of aluminized steel for superior resistance to corrosion and oxidation; for additional protection, some models have an optional stainless steel heat exchanger. The curving design provides for complete exposure of the heating surface to the supply air stream. Rounded surfaces minimize air resistance and permit air to surround all heat transfer surfaces for excellent heat transfer. Tubular design means lighter weight and significantly longer service life due to lower thermal-induced stresses.
Direct Spark Ignition
In combination with the 24-volt main gas valve with 100% shutoff for safety, the direct spark ignition control provides positive, reliable and safe main burner ignition. This eliminates the need for a pilot light, improving system efficiency and reliability. A separate flame sensor provides proof of main burner ignition. If loss of main burner flame should occur, the control will reinitiate ignition three times before locking out, thus reducing nuisance service calls. The unit will reinitiate ignition after the one hour lockout. The prepurge operation safety removes all gas and flue products from the system prior to ignition.
Constructed heavy gauge painted steel, each cabinet has a two-point suspension system for easy installation (larger and two-fan models have four-point suspensions). Generous use of inside cabinet insulation keeps the outer surface temperature low. The wiring junction box is conveniently located on the side of the cabinet (SEP & HED only) for easy access and adequate protection.
All heaters have a sealed flue collector and a power exhaust system which enable conventional vertical venting or horizontal venting. Power exhaust, when used with horizontal venting, lowers operating cost because it reduces stack losses. It also allows the option of not penetrating the roof, or multiple floors. The versatile power exhaust (on some models) reduces installation cost further by allowing the exhaust to be directed upward, left or right, just by rotating the exhaust assembly.
• Residential – low profile units.
• Great for garages & shops.
• Sidewall venting eliminates roof penetrations.
