Construction companies and construction sites use temporary heating more than other industries. Major temporary heater brands and heater rental companies target construction and masonry businesses.
Temporary heaters are used seasonally. They are available in electric, oil-fired, propane and natural gas versions. It is typically necessary to get authorization to use a temporary heater at a construction site. The size of a heater depends on the job site. In very cold areas, temporary heaters make it possible for
laborers to complete on-site construction work while wearing functional layers of clothing. They are also used to keep equipment, chemicals and supplies, such as, concrete, from freezing.
