You may need a heater for the garage you have remodeled sometimes. When you use your garage as a home office or workshop one of the main disadvantages is that it has not been designed for it. It is only made for keeping your car.
In case you are using the garage for some other work you will have to cope up with one of the big inconveniences and that is warmth. This will not be an issue during summer but in cold weather you will have a lot of difficulty in working there with the temperature falling low. There are several ways to heat up your workshop-garage and one way is to use porcelain heaters which work very well and can easily warm up a compact area but they are not useful for larger area especially for a long time.
Another way to heat your workshop-garage is with the help of a kerosene heater. It is very easy to use these heaters as they generally come with an electric starter. There should be a thermostat which can regulate the temperature. There is a particular smell in these heaters as they work on kerosene and you have to remember that when you install them. If you can’t take the smell, avoid using kerosene heaters. They may even be dangerous for children, if they come to the garage and you will also need to have a well ventilated garage.
Gas heaters have become a popular and good option for heating nowadays. You will have to take the help of a professional to install it but you will get a gas heater in your budget when you are remodeling the garage. Many different inexpensive models are available. A big advantage of gas heaters is that they keep the atmosphere warm consistently and are available in manual as well as thermostat control models. The ones with thermostat are prices a little higher than the manual control model.
Gas heaters are of two kinds, vented and vent less. The vent less model works by using air inside the room while the vented model works with the vents outside the garage. You will have to keep the room vented all the time when you use the vent less as it uses the air inside the room. The best thing about any gas heater is that it has a low cost of running as compared to electric and kerosene heaters.
