heating a (very) small garage

Recommended Posts

I have an attached, small, one car garage (so small that you cant open both doors all the way). The ceiling is finished (the attic is above it), but the sides are brick with one wall against the house. I'm renting so I can't install anything too drastic. Do you think one of those dinky electric heaters would be sufficient working in Utah winters? Other options?

no to the dinky electric heater...if i were you, i'd buy a kerosene heater from some place like home depot or lowes...they sell 5 gal cans of fuel and it'll do the job and more

i use one in my shop and it works very well

There are some decent electric heaters that would work fine...not a bathroom type heater tho.

I would stay away from kerosene...it stinks. A small propane torpedo heater would be best I would think.

I heat my garage in MA with a Rinnai Energysaver. I use the 1004, but you can use the 431. With 45 years in the heating business, the Rinnai's are the best heating appliance I've ever seen. Good value and great technology and reliability. Available in LP or NG and requires only a 3" hold through the wall, so it can go with you when you move.

Best one on the market today. Uses no more electric than a coffee pot plugged in all day. Clean & cheap.

Take it to your new home when you leave. Have used with great results and would recommend to anyone.

Cannot start a fire. Can touch as it does not get hot. Thermostat controlled.

The big one will do 1000 sq ft. Your garage needs the little one. I would invest in the big one and turn the thermostat down in the garage so you can use it as heat in your home.

No affiliation, just very pleased. Cut the home propane bill in half with little increase in electric bill. Cheaper than the electric baseboard heat I put in my garage.

I HAVE BEEN USING A DINKY ELECTRIC HEATER FOR YEARS .

MY SHOP IS NOT INSULATED SO ANY ATTEMPT TO HEAT IT IS

SUCKED OUT THROUGH THE WALLS ANYWAY .

THE LITTLE HEATER DOES A GREAT JOB BECAUSE OF IT's PORTABILITY .

WHEN I WORK ON THIS SIDE OF A CAR I HAVE IT THERE BLOWING WARM AIR MY WAY . WHEN I MOVE AROUND , THE HEATER GOES WITH ME .

THIS WAY I DON'T NEED TO HEAT THE WHOLE BUILDING , JUST THE AIR

THAT IS NEAR ME . I ALSO WEAR SWEATSHIRTS THAT I BUY AT THE GOODWILL FOR $1.00 EACH IN THE SUMMER .

THIS WORKS PRETTY WELL FOR ME ALL THE WAY DOWN TO THE 20's

BELOW THAT , I STAY INSIDE .

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
