Costs of Adding Heat and Brake Capabilities to Non-Heated Paint Booths

Selecting the right spray paint booth is not always easy. After all, the term can mean anything, from a bare space with a fan to a high-tech booth that offers several features made possible by a complex system. Obviously, you will have to choose depending on the needs and requirements of your business.

If you’ve been researching spray paint booths, you may already know the different types they come in including crossdraft, semi-downdraft, downdraft and side-draft. However, if you’re planning to add heat and brake capabilities to a non-heated spray paint booth, that is something that you have to seriously consider, especially the cost.

While custom shops may not call for upgrades, you may need one if volume will likely become part of your business model. While adding heat to your booth, make it a point to recycle it so you can save thousands of dollars a year.

The cheapest spray paint booth will usually be the priciest type to retrofit. For example, you cannot supply heat to a cross-draft booth through its doors. Major alterations will be needed and the costs can be prohibitively high. In the same way, you can install a heat recycle in some cross-draft booth configurations, but it will be very costly.

Semi-downdraft booths are relatively simpler to retrofit when you want to add heat. As very little metal customization or on-site work must be done, installation and labor costs are minimal.

Adding heat recycle is going to be difficult and expensive due to the exhaust’s location at the rear of the booth. Most certainly, the project will require significant amounts of ductwork. As the ducts of side downdraft booths run along the sidewalls, retrofitting with heat is easy. As the heater can be connected to the exhaust duct at any location, adding heat recycling is equally easy. As to downdraft booths, heat and heat recycling can both be added easily, depending on the layout. Installation and labor costs will be low as no cabin modifications will be needed.

In any case, the booth should have ample space where you can add heat in the future. Your building should have the appropriate electric load, and you should determine where the power will have to be run so you can see what your costs will be. Also make sure that the fuel that will run the booth can be brought to the heater. Finally, see whether your city will allow you to add a heater, even if your immediate plans do not include that yet. When you take time to look into everything, you can save your business money and time later on.
