About IHS

Your Go-To Resource for Top Hot Air Tools

Industrial Heat Sources (IHS) has been an authorized distributor of the top hot air equipment manufacturers since 2006. We offer hundreds of high-performance tools from 13 leading manufacturers. Among them include HCS, HSK, Tempco, Steinel, and Miller Weldmaster.

In addition, we manufacture a variety of hot air tools, air heaters, and hot air blowers that can be used as standalone products or configured with non-IHS brand tools. We aim to offer our customers the best value, and we’re proud to do so by offering these universal, cost-efficient products.

We also offer high-quality replacement parts—such as air hoses, electronics, and motors—for leading hot air tools at a fraction of the cost of brand name options. Our tools can be used across a variety of industries, from civil engineering to flooring to manufacturing, among many others.

We provide repairs, support, and other services that take our expertise into the job site with you, not just behind a computer screen or phone. We’re dedicated to our clients’ success and offering hands-on support, whether that means climbing inside a cracked windmill blade in sub-zero temperatures to repair it, setting up a new production line on a factory floor, or creating specialized training videos.

We've worked with thousands of roofers, hot-air welders, industrial engineers, flooring specialists, and other professionals to learn what they require of their tools and equipment. In addition, we've serviced hundreds of hot air welders and other tools and parts, gaining expert knowledge on how they’re used and where they can be improved.

We’re not just salespeople. We’re longtime industry experts. And we can consult with you about your specific needs and recommend a part or solution tailored to your applications. Contact us today and learn more about our knowledgeable staff below.
