While our local markets are not near as cold as other parts of the country, keeping your warehouse warm during the winter can be a challenging task, but there are several strategies you can employ to maintain a comfortable temperature while also being energy-efficient. Here are some tips to help you keep heat in your warehouse during the winter:
Insulate the Building: Proper insulation is crucial to reduce heat loss. Make sure your warehouse is well-insulated in the walls, roof, and floor. If your warehouse is poorly insulated, consider adding insulation materials like fiberglass, foam board, or spray foam.
Inspect, Repair or Replace Dock Seals or Shelters; A lot of heat and energy can go out the door everytime a trailer loads or unloads. Be sure the seal between your dock seal and trailers is tight and if needed consider replacement.
