Choosing a Workshop Heater

More people are running their own businesses today than have been seen since the Industrial Revolution. The economy often makes self-employment the most lucrative idea, if you can perform a trade on your own. That means that garages all over are being transformed into workspaces, workshops and storage units. During the winter months, using a garage as a workshop can be cold and slow your performance. Suppose you are a carpenter building desks and bookshelves, you know how important it is to keep your hands warm and able to make precise movements. It is hard to do that with cold hands. Purchasing a garage heater can significantly warm your workspace and increase your work effort. This in combination with a garage floor coating can make the space very comfortable to work in.

There are a few options that may serve your needs best. If you have limited space, an over-head heater might be the best route to pursue. If you work low to the ground a propane tank attachment heater could be more effective. Nevertheless, regardless of the model you choose, the amount of warmth you will receive from a work shop heater will truly improve your efforts. Moreover, the brand is more important than the model.

Mr. Heater designs a variety of garage heaters for your workspace. The Portable Big Buddy Heater by Mr. Heater is a great electric heater that puts out sufficient warmth for 400 square feet. At a cost of one hundred fifty dollars, this heater is effective and affordable. A top heater from Mr. Heater is less expensive and can heat around 200 square feet. You would spend just fifty dollars for this model. The disadvantage to such a model is that it consumes more propane for less output. One final choice from Mr. Heater is the Garage/Shop Heater. It is a ceiling mounted work shop heater that can cover between 500 to 600 square feet. You can elect to buy it for propane or natural gas power.

Other brand name heaters produce great products and the quality of Mr. Heater makes it worth highlighting. Again, it depends on your space needs, and the amount of use you will be giving to the heater. Many electric heaters do not produce enough warmth to keep your workspace comfortable so it is probably the best choice to purchase a propane or natural gas element. Nothing is worse than trying to make ends meet; building inventory when the shop is so cold you cannot feel your fingers.
