Three large natural gas radiant heaters are used to warm the warehouse where raw materials are stored. However, workers occupy only a small section for extended periods; employees access the rest of the warehouse only periodically. By turning off one of the heaters, limiting access to the thermostat controls, and deploying smaller portable heaters in occupied areas, they can heat the people rather than the entire space. Boardroom ECO has cut their natural gas bills by over 37%, and their annual carbon emissions by 21%.
