    We have 2 geothermal heat pumps. 1 for in-floor heat in the apparatus bays and 1 forced air heat pump in the office and meeting room areas. The bays are 65 deg and the office and meeting room are 70 deg.

    VFD: In our current station (which we move out of in July), we simply have a 40+ year old residential-grade air handler supplying heat to the bay through a wall vent. We keep it at 60 degrees during the winter...off in the summer! The new station, under construction, will use infrared overhead heaters, but we haven't yet determined it's operating limits.

    Work: Gas-fed overhead heaters, which have two settings: "Off" and "Chernobyl." We get our new station at work in about 18 months, and it too will have infrared overhead heaters.

    How Warm is your Station

    We heat with an infrared natural gas heater. Historically, we just keep it above freezing. Nowdays with a new pumper in the stable and new electronic controlled SCBA's, TIC's and extrication tool, I'm just wondering out loud, how warm should it be?
    It gets pretty hot in there in the summer time too. Are small rural volunteer departments going to need much better climate control in the future?
    What are youall doing?
