My garage has the heat in the floor, it was 17 today and 65 inside it makes your feet feel better and I've definitely got the nods while under the car on a creeper....Once up to temp in the fall it costs next to nothing to keep at that temp all winter, the down side is it takes a day or more to raise the temp to 72+ to be able to paint and then the floor is pretty hot.
Quote from: 94touring on June 20, 2018, 09:45:43 AMWanted to add another heat option I have just discovered. I have a camping trip planned in the mountains next month and having a heat source at night is ideal. I won't have an electric outlet for a space heater and didn't want to bring my 60k btu forced heater that's loud and extreme overkill for sitting in chairs outside at night, or for a quick blast of heat inside a tent. I bought one of these propane top heaters off ebay for 20 bucks or so. 15k btus on the max setting. They sell them in single, dual or triple mount. It arrived yesterday so thought I'd give it a test to see if it's loud and not worth it. Well it's very quiet and puts out a nice blast of heat. I'd think something like this would work very well in a small garage, or direct heat toward your work area. I have a feeling I'll use it in the winter to sit on my patio too.

I've got a detached double garage, about 500 square feet. The garage is insulated and has an insulated door. I use a single 220v 5000W construction heater. In the Great White North, it's -34 outside right now, but room temperature in the garage.
