How does the Pest-Heat System work?

The Pest-Heat treatment process delivers controlled, evenly distributed heat throughout a structure for several hours with high volumes of air movement while recording and monitoring temperatures. During a typical heat treatment process, internal temperatures are slowly raised in the space to a target temperature of 120°F to 140°F and then held for several hours. Achieving this temperature in the cracks, crevices, and hard-to-reach places is necessary for the heat to effectively penetrate and kill the entire life cycle of bedbugs, from eggs to adults. Temperatures are then consistently monitored and recorded remotely from numerous temperature sensors placed strategically throughout the room.

This safe, chemical free approach is the most efficient and environmentally friendly heat treatment method for insect eradication.

Heat Cycle

The Pest-Heat process relies on three key components to ensure a successful heat treatment:

Heat:

Our custom-designed, portable electric or propane forced-air heaters deliver high volumes of heat. The heaters are placed within the targeted area, introducing and re-circulating heated air for maximum efficiency.


Airflow:

Portable fans with high temperature and high CFM, variable speeds and low amp draw are utilized to distribute the heated air evenly throughout the space and target high infestation zones.


Monitoring:

Probes and sensors are used to track the heating progress and to ensure proper heat penetration in all places where bugs can take refuge. The system allows heat to penetrate behind cracks and into crevices, ensuring that pest eradication is a complete success.

Electric Heater Packages:

Pest-Heat offers the TPE-51-C, 204,000 BTU/h portable electric heater package that is designed for immediate set-up in a minimal amount of time.

This package includes four 15kw, 3-phase portable high temperature electric heaters, with 100' of 6/4 power cord per heater and 50 amp cam locks that plug into a six-outlet waterproof distribution box. Four 20" high temperature fans, and wired or wireless temperature monitoring equipment complete the package.

The electric heaters are designed to be installed inside the space, re-circulating the dry heated air without the need for ducting. The heaters can be left unattended, while the temperature is remotely monitored.

Temperature is precisely controlled thermostatically on each heater, allowing the operator to maintain the desired temperature levels at all times.

Propane Heater Packages:

Our propane heater package offers you a cost-effective solution for pest eradication. This package includes the TPE-500, 500,000 BTU/h, single-phase portable propane heater, complete with high temperature flexible duct, quick connect propane fitting for easily connecting two 100 lb. propane cylinders, four 20" high temperature fans, and wired or wireless temperature monitoring equipment.

The propane heater is installed outside the area being treated where the heater(s) can be easily monitored. Warm air is ducted into the area and the heat is distributed throughout the space utilizing high temperature fans.

Temperature is precisely controlled thermostatically on each heater, allowing the operator to maintain the desired temperature levels at all times. The easily portable propane heater will provide years of dependable, reliable, and efficient operation. This package ensures the proper amount of heat needed for those hard to reach areas, especially when treatment is performed during cold weather. Having the proper amount of heat is crucial for a thorough and total eradication.
