The Small Furry Hotel – is the most unusual place we have been asked to heat.

At the Multiheat office we are quite used to dealing with questions about heating all sorts of different buildings and for very different requirements, from grand hotels or large offices to flats or garden rooms, but our latest project was quite a surprise!

We were asked if we could heat a hotel for animals, The Small Furry Hotel in Hampshire.  Madeleine Fear provides an excellent boarding facility for rabbits, guinea pigs and any other small animals whilst their owners are away on holiday. Some of these animals are usually be kept indoors at their own home so it was important for Madeleine to offer that same warm environment for the animals, so she asked us if our heaters would be right for the job.

Infrared heating panels are the ideal solution for heating a log cabin where the occupants need to feel gentle background warmth, the panel is fitted up on the ceiling with a switch so is out of the way from any hazards, especially where nibbling animals are concerned! The warmth shines down reaching all areas of the log cabin unlike hot blowing fans that create hot spots and draughts or bulky heaters which take up floor space. The panel will keep background warmth, it is on day and night to prevent the animals becoming too cold.

This infrared heating panel is only 350 watts, so will only be costing about 4 pence an hour to run, and, if on constantly for 24 hours a day that is less than £1 per day. When working in conjunction with a room thermostat, the panel will modulate and use far less power; we expect the costs on milder days to be just a few pence.

The Small Furry Hotel need never worry about their visitors feeling cold at night or that water may freeze when the outside temperature unexpectedly drops, and Madeleine herself will be comfortably warm whilst she is attending to her visitors.
