Consider a fixed heater for your garage. Portable heaters can be very dangerous as they are easy to tip over and often use flammable fuels. Risk of fire is a big issue as well, as some materials that you use in your garage including gasoline, spray paints, and flammable chemicals can be dangerous if portable heaters becoming over heated.
Many of the best kinds of garage heaters include vent-free, sealed combustion and electric radiant ceiling panels just to name a few. You should try to avoid using fan style heaters. They have a tendancy to be a little less capable of heating larger spaces like a garage.
The best position of a new garage heater will vary according to what you use your garage for. Usually they will not be close to floor or any work surfaces that you are going to be using. A freestanding heater is probably not the best idea as this is likely to get in the way of your exit route or it could be knocked over. This is especially likely if it is on a table top. Instead, you should mount your heater on the wall or the ceiling. Many garage heaters allow you to direct heat as you need to. A good idea is to ensure that their heat flow is pointing towards the center of the garage, or towards any workbench area where you may be working. This will mean that you will get the maximum benefit from the heater. A radiant panel could be considered, as these can warm up your garage and help it to stay warmer for longer. They do take a little while to heat up so you will need to be patient.
In order to keep your garage toasty and warm throughout the winter months, make sure that it is adequately heated. Sometimes the first thing that most people may think of when they consider heating their garage is simply purchasing a garage heater. Whilst this will provide some heat, there are a few other things that you can do to help your garage to stay warm.
Garage heaters are a really good idea for your workspace no matter what you use it for. A garage heater will provide heat in the colder winter months when you need it the most to keep you warm, but they can also act as a way of keeping your garage and the things inside it from becoming damaged by frosty weather. Remember there are other heaters besides electric ones for you to choose from, but in general, electric garage heaters are the safest type. If you already have an electric supply in your garage, you will be able to choose from a wide variety of heaters.
