Quite unit heaters

Any of you guys have any experience with quite unit heaters?

I did a survey of an indoor tennis court that has multiple problems with their heating system.

One of the problems is the warm air furnaces lack of dependability and the blower noise they make is distracting to the players.

I suggested unit heaters and a boiler but the owner has concerns about noise from the unit heaters.

Any suggestions?

    Tennis Court

    Have you looked at a "sock system"? Or AHU w/constant fan & air exchange?

    In addition

    In addition to finding heaters that are as quiet as possible, you may want to investigate some acoustical material of some sort. My guess is that a building containing an indoor tennis court is going to be mostly hard surfaces which reflect any and all sound many times before the waves dissipate. Some acoustic material hung in strategic locations may help more than finding a quiet heat source.

    Forget Air

    Why not use overhead low-intensity gas-fired radiant? Ooooh.

    Just buy the ball guards. (For the heaters -unless you are playing with Olaf. He dere got one mean low serve, you bet!)

    Co-Ray-Vac, Reverb-A-Ray (Detroit Radiant) and others that do not have a Morse-Code Syntax...

    If an air system, the sock system Ed mentioned makes a lot of sense. Just make sure that the returns are LOW and heavy-duty. You will not destratify effectively unless you do that. You also may want to put in destratification fans.

    low intensity radiant is a great way to heat them. Quiet and comfortable.
