Heating for Places of Worship
Churches, temples, mosques etc. are usually large buildings, often with vaulted ceilings, only used for a limited time each week and this proves problematic when it comes to keeping occupants warm and comfortable during services. Traditionally, boilers and radiators were used in an effort to heat the entire building but this is a hopeless quest since the warm air generated simply rises to the highest point whilst the congregation freezes below.
With infra-red heating, you are heating the fabric of the building and the occupants so a little goes a long way. Install electric underfloor heating where the worshippers will be and they will feel warm and comfortable throughout the service. If you zone such heating using separate thermostats then you need only heat a small area when attendance is low.
But if installing underfloor heating is not an option at this stage, there are other infra-red solutions including heating in or on the ceiling which, being infra-red, will work the same way just heating the objects and people in the room. Then we have two ranges designed to fit onto the pews to warm the occupants – dedicated heating just for this type of application which makes a lot of sense and will save a considerable amount from the heating bills compared with heating the whole building.
