    Hello, So my techs take the vans home with them. They don't park in a garage or anything and it's been getting single digits here at night. NJ. In the van they are stocked with dehus, fans, etc. Also all there chemicals needed, AntiMicrobial, Cherrybombs, Degreasers, IAQ's and they keep freezing at night.
    Just looking to see if there is a trick or container or anything that someone has used.
    Thanks

    The same heat source that keeps the equipment from freezing should be used .

    If you're a VLM company you either put a heater in the van or the the van in a heater


    Or bring all the chems inside at night
