the pros and cons - what is right for you?

Buying tips on heating your garage can be found below.

Most heaters are powered by electricity because they're inexpensive, relatively safe, and convenient. When shopping for an electric heater, you'll usually see two main types: convection and radiant. Convection heaters are ideal for heating up an entire room because they heat large areas: most convection heaters will utilize a fan which quickly spreads warmth. Another type of electric heater is the radiant or infrared heater. These heaters have an electric ribbon or quartz element which provides instant heat. Although powerful, infrared heaters are more suitable for spot heating.

Most fueled heaters will use either propane or kerosene. One of the most popular types of fueled heater is the propane patio heater. Fueled heaters have open flames and will emit carbon monoxide, therefore, they're not recommended for indoor use and are often placed outdoors or in large, very well-ventilated areas.
