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. The gas is burned directly in the air stream being heated. That means 100% of the available heat (every BTU of gas burned) is then delivered directly and efficiently to the building.

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. It is also possible to experience condensation within heat exchanger sections of indirect-fired units in cold climates causing corrosion and premature failure.

Do not substitute any type of indirect gas-fired make-up air heater for a Cambridge M-Series direct gas-fired heater. The technologies are different. Performance will be jeopardized and energy costs will increase.

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 | Direct Gas-Fired Heaters

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. Experience Cambridge was the first to pioneer the concept of using direct gas-fired heaters for industrial space heating applications over 45 years ago.


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.
