How To Heat A Garage
When the winter season approaches learning how to heat a garage can be important, especially if you plan to be in your garage a lot. You may not know where to begin with heating your garage, as it can be overwhelming. You want to be comfortable in your garage during the winter time, especially if you work on cars or have a workshop in your garage. Here are some different ways to heat your garage.
- Sealed-combustion space heater. If your house uses natural gas a space heater is ideal to heat up a garage. This type of space heater is built pull air from outside and them pumps it back outside, so this helps to prevent fumes or sawdust from being circulated in the garage. A space heater will be able to warm up a garage fairly quickly. A space heater will work at its best if it is stalled hanging from the ceiling, but if you a not able to do so it can also be placed on the floor.
- Electrical radiant ceiling panels. These panels are kind of easy to install, they are very quiet, and can quickly warm up large spaces such as garages. Although it can be rather expensive to run these panels, they do have the luxury of being able to be turned on and off when they are not being used, which can help out a little with the cost of running them. If you just work in one area of your garage, electrical radiant ceiling panels can just be mounted above that general area.
- Electric radiant floor panels. These panels can be expensive as well, and it can be very difficult to install them, especially into an existing garage. The floor is heated first, and then the heat rises and heats the rest of the garage. These can be installed the easiest during the original construction of the garage. Just like the electrical radiant ceiling fans they can be turned on and off as needed.
