  • FAQs

10 reasons why there is nothing else like a Genuine Cambridge Heater
  • 1. Experience
    Cambridge was the first to pioneer the concept of using direct gas-fired heaters for industrial space heating applications over 45 years ago. In recent years, Cambridge has heated thousands of buildings and over one billion square feet.
  • 2. Cambridge Burners
    Unlike our competition, Cambridge designs and manufactures its own proprietary high efficiency, stainless steel burners. You can’t get the high performance of a Cambridge Burner unless you have a Cambridge Heater.

  • 3. Blow-Thru® Space Heater
    The Cambridge Burner, combined with Blow-Thru® technology outperforms every other direct gas-fired heater on the market. This means a higher BTU/CFM ratio and lower operating costs. Pre-qualified for EPAct Federal tax deductions when used in eligible buildings.
  • 4.  160°F Certified Heater
    Despite misleading claims by our competitors, Cambridge is still the only manufacturer certified to ANSI Standard Z83.4/CSA 3.7 with a heater that will take 0°F inlet air and heat it through a 160°F temperature rise to achieve a max discharge temperature of 160°F. The max 160°F rating for both temperature rise and outlet temperature is crucial for space heating applications. It translates into a smaller, more energy efficient heater that uses a lower horsepower motor and most important of all, will heat a building using less outside air.

  • 5.  Save Energy and Reduce Carbon Footprint
    High temperature rise, Blow-Thru® Space Heaters are 40% to 70% more energy efficient than all other types of indirect and direct gas-fired systems used to heat/ventilate large commercial and industrial facilities. Saving energy means a corresponding reduction in CO2 emissions to reduce your building’s carbon footprint. Cambridge heaters are recommended for LEED/Green buildings.
  • 6.  Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)
    Cambridge® heaters use 100% fresh air to improve IAQ. There are no IAQ problems from reheating and partial incineration of indoor air as with gas-fired equipment certified to ANSI Standard Z83.18 for recirculating
    type heaters.
  • 7.  Lower Installation Costs
    Smaller, lightweight, pre-piped and pre-wired Cambridge heaters are available with five mounting options, including the popular “thru-wall” design for easier installation.
  • 8.  Reliability
    With Cambridge you know it will ship on time and it will always work. Cambridge® heaters require little maintenance and are built to last. All units include the rugged stainless steel Cambridge Burner with a 5-year warranty. The complete heater has a 2-year warranty.

  • 9.  Best Customer Support
    Cambridge has factory-trained sales/service representatives throughout North America who provide: heating and ventilating system design assistance, building heat loads, operating cost analysis, factory start-up and field service support. Surveys show that Cambridge provides the best overall customer support.
  • 10.  We Have the Proof
    Saying it and doing it are two different things. We back up our claims with documented proof, including computer modeling and a growing list of over 300 onsite building studies and customer testimonials.See sample comparison study below.

Other products and services from Cambridge Engineering


Cambridge Engineering | Industrial Space Heating System

The most energy efficient way to heat both new and existing buildings with large open spaces such as: warehouses, distribution centers, manufacturing & assembly plants, indoor sports facilities, automobile dealership service bays, car washes, aircraft hangars, boat storage WWTP facilities and other commercial/industrial facilities.


Cambridge Engineering / Energy Efficient Make-Up Air Heaters

Indirect gas-fired make-up air heating equipment is only 60% to 80% efficient due to heat exchanger inefficiency and heat lost up the flue. Direct gas-fired technology is the most energy efficient choice for heating make-up air because it does not use a flue or heat exchanger. That means 100% of the available heat (every BTU of gas burned) is then delivered directly and efficiently to the building.


Cambridge Engineering | Energy Efficient Gas Space Heaters

Our unique Blow-Thru design, with 160°F maximum temperature rise and discharge temperature, delivers more usable heat and thermal comfort with minimal temperature variation throughout the heated space. Genuine Cambridge Space Heaters are 40% to 70% more energy efficient than all other types of indirect and direct gas-fired systems used to heat large commercial and industrial buildings.
