Heating a barn and what you should pay attention to

Heating a barn poses special challenges, after all, it is usually a building that is at risk of fire. You can't just set up a wood stove or gas heater without creating a high risk of fire.

Heating a barn and what to watch out for

It is not so easy to name a barn in such a way that it can be heated without risk and without excessive energy costs. Of course, there are a few ways to get heat into the barn. However, it always depends on the purpose for which the heating is to be carried out. Is it just a short-term heating option or a heating of a partial area or the entire barn, which should be permanently done when the outside temperatures are too strong? In the second case, it makes sense to isolate the barn so well that no heating costs are unnecessarily wasted. Basically, there are different ways to implement a heating such as the following:

  • Also read - the barn shells and what to consider
  • Also read - tear a barn: cost and what you should consider
  • Also read - isolate a barn and what it takes to note
  • Wood or oil stoves for smaller spaces or. Areas of the barn
  • Use electric ovens or fan heaters
  • Insert gas radiators to heat certain areas

Permanent resp. Frequently used heating or occasion heating

If the barn is only to be heated on certain occasions (for example in the context of celebrations or similar occasions), heating means that are as uncomplicated as possible are suitable, such as electric heaters (if electricity is available) or gas heaters, but which are always attached or. should be set up so that there is no direct fire hazard if possible. Although the costs for this type of heating are not exactly low, it is easy and quick to install and also provides short-term heat. It looks a little different if the heating is used more often or. should be done regularly. Here, insulation of the barn should first be considered in order not to unnecessarily increase heating costs. Then it is a matter of installing a heating facility, for example with an oven. However, the installation is a bit more complex here, as a stove is known to also have a chimney or. needs an exhaust pipe. The advantage is that heating the barn with a wood stove is relatively inexpensive. Although the installation costs are higher at first, the fuels are available relatively cheaply.
