Choosing between a ceiling, floor and wall-mounted heating system

Now is the perfect time to invest in an air source heat pump for heating and cooling your business premises, as winter is setting in and you’ll need an efficient and cost-effective way to keep your employees and customers warm. Here at I-HT, we’re proud to offer a range of different heating and air conditioning systems to meet our customers’ diverse needs. We offer three main types of system: wall-mounted, ceiling-mounted and floor-mounted. Each option has its own distinct advantages and disadvantages, but which is right for you? In today’s blog, we’ll take a look at each type of system in turn and help you decide between them.

1. Ceiling-mounted heating systems

Ceiling-mounted options offer two major benefits. Firstly, they don’t take up any floor-space or wall-space that could be used for other items or for shelving. Secondly, because they are out of the way, they aren’t likely to be accidentally damaged by either customers or workers. This makes them ideal for smaller office spaces and customer-facing business premises that might become crowded at certain times of day. However, these ceiling-mounted systems do have one drawback. They can be hard to reach if you need to repair them or carry out maintenance. If you’ll need to run the system nearly constantly, it might wear out slightly quicker and require attention a little more frequently. In this case, you may want to opt for a floor or wall-mounted system.

2. Floor-mounted heating systems

These systems can be positioned to give you easy access. This makes them particularly useful if you plan on running your heating system constantly for long stretches of time and may need to carry out maintenance or make adjustments regularly. However, because they take-up floor-space and might get in the way in crowded environments, we don’t recommend them for small offices and customer-facing premises. Instead, floor-mounted systems are perfect for larger offices and even warehouses.

3. Wall-mounted heating systems

Wall-mounted heating systems offer a good compromise between their floor-mounted and ceiling-mounted counterparts. While they aren’t as space-efficient as ceiling-mounted heating systems, they don’t get in the way quite as much as floor-mounted ones. They are also a little easier to access than ceiling-mounted systems (though perhaps not as easy to access as floor-based ones). We recommend them for mid-sized office spaces and customer-facing environs that you can be sure won’t get too crowded.

Whatever style of heating system you prefer, we have an air source heat pump option that will suit you, so check out our range today.
