Hot yoga has been surging in popularity for over a decade, and studio owners are constantly trying to find the best, most efficient way to heat their studios.
Traditional furnaces or rooftop units are not designed to exceed temperatures over 100 degrees fahrenheit, which is standard for most hot yoga studios.
Additionally, traditional style furnaces running that hot will rapidly dry out the air, to the point of irritating skin and eyes, which is not relaxing for practitioners at all. Radiant heaters are the most ideal for a hot yoga studio. Radiant heaters are the most quiet, as fan-forced heaters tend to make a lot of noise, and depending on your teaching style, less noise is usually better. Radiant heaters are also more energy efficient, to choose the best heating system for your hot yoga studio, it is important to know the total amount of space you want to treat, and when using a radiant heater, you will essentially need to use less electricity per square foot of studio space. Radiant heater panels will also get the room up to the desired temperature more rapidly, so you don’t have to waste energy heating up the room, which can sometimes take hours, which will have a significant impact on your energy costs. Your customers will love taking hot yoga classes under the warmth of radiant heater panels, and the amount of health benefits that hot yoga can provide is constantly growing, the more that we understand about the practice. Speak with your local commercial HVAC provider to learn more about purchasing radiant heater panels for your hot yoga studio today.
