Hello Mark, and everyone..
To heat my garage, I installed a 220 electric warehouse heating unit. It
hangs from the ceiling, which is convenient for space, and no flame, which
is why propane/natural gas heaters et al, make me nervous. The unit has a
built in fan and thermostat. The temp here on the east coast of Canada can
get into the minus Celcius ranges (o F and below on occasion). We were
living in northern Ontario when I first purchased the unit to heat the
two-car garage (24x24), and in the winters there, it dips to that magic
point where both scales F & C meet at -40! The heater did an excellent job
of making the garage interior feel like Miami.
When we moved to the coast, and I had the garage-o-my-dreams built (26 x
32), and installed the unit in the corner. Through the winter months, I
like to keep the garage at about 10 C (50 F) when I'm not working, and will
kick it up a few degrees when I am.
The unit is made by 'Commander", it's model CUMO320-1.
With a well-insultated garage, the electric heater hasn't impacted heavily
of electricity cosumption either.
Toasty on the coast...y..
