We have discovered one of the most economical ways of heating a church: pew heaters offering direct heating, being turned on only when needed, to heat up the church-goers as needed!
These days in the UK we have a cold wave, with many of the schools in Scotland being closed due to the cold and most people adding another layer when they go to work. It is cold.
But it does not have to break the bank when it comes to heating a church! Read more to find out about:

Pew Heaters Providing the Most Economical Means of Heating in a Church Building
If you are taking care of a church building, a synagogue, or any place of worship that is not constantly attended by people but needs heating when people are there, we warmly recommend the pew heaters on our website.
Made by BN Thermic according to the highest industry specifications, these pew heaters provide the most economical means of heating in a church.
Here are some of the amazing features and benefits of having pew heaters in a church building.
- The pew heaters heat people directly, rather than heating the surrounding air.
- The pew heaters are silent and draught-free, having virtually no warm-up period.
- The pew heaters are at a low level and match the decor, coming in a dark brown finish and being visually unobtrusive.
- Many years of trouble-free service: the pew heaters are made of steel, thus ensuring many years with no service required.
- No extra external guards are required since these pew heaters are all you need!
- Switch ON the pews that are occupied to keep running costs to an absolute minimum! Only the occupied pews need to be heated, and this can be easily done.
What Pew Heaters do you need for the Church Building?
When addressing the problem of heating in a church building, a mosque, a synagogue, or any place of worship that requires heating, one must first do some measurements to make sure he orders the right items in the right quantity.
BN Thermic provides a simple 3-step guide to measure the pews to make sure you order the right pew heaters.
- Measure the pews. In order to directly heat the pew occupants, you need to measure the pews. The rule of thumb is that the greater the percentage of the pew that is heated, the more effective the system will be. You need to measure the distance between the support beams of the pews. If there are no support beams, simply measure the total length of the pew.
- Record your measurements. You must measure each pew individually because, over time, some of the pews may have been refurbished or damaged, which can affect the distance between the support beams. After measuring the pews, please write down the measurements: from front to back, pew number, and full dimensions.
- Submit the measurements. Once the measurements are done and recorded, you can submit them via email to SparksDirect.co.uk and we will contact the specialists at BN Thermic to advise on what is the heating scheme they propose.

How Does the Pew Heating Work?
The Pew Heaters we have on our website are designed to provide direct heating to the pew occupants, and they can be switched ON or OFF as needed.
The greater the percentage of the pew length that is heated, the more effective the system is. In general, the pew heaters are mounted to the pew's backboard right below the seat.
And if there is no backboard available, no problem: you can order the PHF floor bracket or you can fix it to the underside of the pew seat using the PHB suspension brackets.
There are three main pew heaters available, based on the length of the pew or the space between the pew beams:
- BN Thermic PH30 Pew Heater - when the space between the seat supports or pew is 500mm to 750mm
- BN Thermic PH45 Pew Heater - when the space between the seat supports or pew is 751mm to 100mm
- BN Thermic PH65 Pew Heater - when the space between the seat supports or pew is 1000mm to 1500mm
If the space between the seat supports exceeds 1.5m, you can use a combination of pew heaters to make it up.
The pew heaters can be easily fitted to the backboards with no additional brackets. The brown finish of the pew heaters is unobtrusive, making them virtually unnoticed in the church.
