Why Garage Heating Is Important
Especially if you don’t spend a lot of time in your garage, it may seem silly to go to the trouble of heating it. But there are quite a few good reasons to do so. For one thing, if your water pipes run through or near your garage and are not well insulated, they’re more likely to freeze if your garage isn’t heated and protected in some way from the extreme temperatures outside.
Cold air from your garage can also find its way into your home, causing your home heating system to work that much harder to keep the rest of the house comfortable. That will quickly translate into higher heating bills and can take years off of the life of your heating system through added wear and tear.
If you do use your garage as a workspace, you’re probably inclined to avoid it in the winter. But simply adding a garage heating system can make that area useful year–round. These systems are quite efficient and inexpensive and you can get so much more out of your garage by putting one in.
Types of Garage Heaters
Most common garage heaters are powered by electricity or propane. While propane is often cheap, the heaters that use this as a fuel source are generally not as energy efficient as their electric counterparts. Additionally, with a propane heater, you must make sure you have adequate ventilation so fumes don’t build up in your garage while the heater is running.
The most efficient electric garage heaters convert virtually all of the energy they consume into heat, so you can be sure you’re getting the most for your money with one of these units. Both propane and electric garage heaters can be mounted in several ways. Most commonly, electric garage heater installation involves hanging it from the ceiling or on the wall. This helps to keep the heater out of the way while allowing it to heat the entire space effectively.
