Keep Your Man Cave Warm Using Electric Garage Heaters
What do you use your garage for? Is it a home gym, a hobby shop, or a place to entertain your friends and shoot pool? No matter what you use it for, you're going to want to heat it when the weather turns cold, and the best way to do it is with a garage heater.
Garage heaters come in a variety of shapes and sizes. What you use your garage for should determine the model you choose. Below are a few things to consider before making your decision.
Not all garages are the same. Some garages are single car and some are 4. It's best to get a measuring tape and measure the garage area so you know how much coverage you need. The average garage heater warms from 150-500 sq. ft. of space. If your garage is bigger than 500 sq. ft. you might need to invest in a couple of different options. Together 2 electric garage heaters can warm up to 1,000 sq. ft. You're guaranteed to stay warm when you set these up.
Wall Mountable or Floor Model
Depending on what you're using the garage for and how you want to arrange the heat source should determine if you invest in a wall mount or a floor model. If you need a lot of floor space - maybe you're remodeling cars - then you need all the floor space you can get. It is better to shop for a wall/ceiling mountable option.
If you're playing pool and enjoying a home bar, you can probably use a floor model, although both types will do. Personal preference might be an important factor in your final choice.
Garage heaters are safe and offer a variety of safety features. Most models include tip over safety switches to shut the heater off should it get knocked over accidentally. They also include high limit thermal cut off should the maximum heat production be met, and automatic shut off to stop heat production when the desired temperature is met. All of these features are designed to provide you with a heat source that's safe and effective at the same time.
Most garage heaters are fan-forced, so heat is spread rather quickly around the entire room. This type of heater is best for larger areas. If your garage space is small and intimate like a home bar you can probably use a reflective heater. This heater warms the immediate area, and although a fan might help spread warmth, it's designed to warm smaller spaces. Basically this heater will warm up to 150 sq. ft.

These heaters vary but there are so many options available, you're guaranteed to find one that's perfect for your personal space.
