garage heater recommendations

Posted by elvis_presley (My Page) on

I have an uninsulated garage. It's about 20X20 with 8 foot ceilings (almost flat roof) and lot's of air leaks.
i could run a natural gas line in there, or wire it to 220 (or use propane or kerosene) . What is the best choice for a safe heater that will enable me to work out there now and then this winter?
I don't need it toasty warm--Just warm enoough to take the chill off, and remove my gloves when i need to do finer work. This in in saint paul, mn. I should say i have asthma, so i wouldn't want anything that's very stinky.
what is the best and most economical option?
thanks in advance.

Try here, alot to look at but maybe something will do. It would behoove you to do some insulating, regardless of what you end up getting. It makes a huge difference.

I have a ventless natural gas heater and it works great. They're not terribly expensive, maybe $125 to $175 depending on what size you need. Just make sure you get one with a thermostat.

If it's practical, insulate the garage. You'll be much more comfortable and will keep you heating bill down.
