Car Washes

Heating harsh environments

Save energy while heating harsh environments.

Our short tube heaters with high BTU ratings or small- to mid-sized high intensity commercial heaters are efficient, energy-saving choices to handle a variety of challenges in heating car washes.

Most car wash heating systems are designed to protect against freezing and spot-heat employees. Re-Verber-Ray® infrared car wash heaters are best placed at the ends of the tunnel for spot heating. Millivolt controls are typically chosen for equipment rooms (if shielded from the wind) for freeze protection during power outages.

Stainless steel, silicone sealant, waterproof controls, and electrical attachments are recommended. For an even greater increase in energy savings, choose heaters with two stage operation.
