The Issues with Waiting for Plaster to Dry

Ideal Heat are frequently approached by people from a range of sectors requesting advice about temporary heating methods. Property developers are left frustrated by delays as construction halts while waiting for screed or plaster to dry. Historically, property developers have found existing boilers lacking for a variety of reasons: too large, too heavy, too expensive to run, too noisy or not viable as no oil or gas supply is available. Added to this, existing boilers may not be environmentally friendly, a factor of increasing importance to all parties involved.

Applications of a Temporary Boiler

Underfloor heating is growing in popularity. As well as being an effective heat source, it preserves wall space, it is suitable for most flooring and the range of options available makes it viable for almost any situation. A temporary, portable electric boiler is an excellent solution, not only for underfloor heating, but also screed drying and plaster drying during construction.

Our clients report that hiring a temporary boiler provided an excellent heating solution. A portable boiler can easily be relocated across the site as the development progresses and needs arise. Plaster and screed drying time is greatly reduced and the construction process is made smoother and far quicker. Developers have an optimal heating solution on-site, available to provide controllable heat for on-site drying needs wherever and whenever they arise. This temporary heating option provides a flexible solution which reduces costs, increases efficiency as well providing a better working environment.
