Boise Nampa and Caldwell's Unit Heater Professionals

 Your Heat, Your Way

Drake Mechanical can heat your facility in many ways. Rooftop units, radiant floor heat, or just a simple unit heater, we do it all. Unit heaters are a great way to heat your building, warehouse, shop, pump house, or other facility inexpensively and efficiently.  Commercial heating units come in various sizes, fuel sources, and efficiencies.  Drake Mechanical can help get the most heat for your dollar into your facility.  We can get them all from Steam or hot water unit heaters to natural gas, even propane unit heaters.  There are options for electric unit heaters, although we don't recommend this option in most cases due to the cost of electric resistance heat.  Whatever your fuel source for your unit heater is, Drake Mechanical can help you get the heat on!

There are many different types, shapes, and sizes of unit heaters.  Depending on what you are trying to heat, we can help you choose which model fits your type best.
