My Frigid Garage Needs A Heater: What To Do?

If you are like me, your garage is more than just a place to park your car. My garage is my workshop. In it, I build all sorts of creations throughout the year! However, there is one time of the year when I don’t enjoy spending time in it: winter. That’s because where I live, the temperature in my garage can go below freezing during the coldest winter months. It definitely is not a fun place to be when it’s that cold!

I recently was wondering what my options were for heating the garage. There are a lot of different garage heaters out there, but I wanted one that was both safe and affordable. I personally don’t like the risks associated with using gas to heat a garage. Although I’m sure a propane heater can be used safely, if you know what you are doing, I wanted to go with electricity instead.

So the obvious answer to my question was to research different makes a models of electric garage heaters. I was very surprised by the wide variety and prices that were available. Ultimately I purchased a New Air model from Amazon, because it had the best reviews. You can learn more about it in the video below:

Now my garage is a place I like to work all year long – not just during the warm months. And it’s a good thing too, because I find that winter months are often the months I most want to do some crafting and it’s wonderful to have a heated garage space to work in now. My heat bills haven’t gone up too much either – under $100 a month for the amount of use I’m putting into it. So if you have a workspace you want to heat, you should definitely look into this option to help you get the most of your workshop this winter!
