Natural Gas Heaters for Garage

Thinking of having a natural gas garage heater installed in your home?

Natural gas garage heaters come in a variety shapes and sizes.

Styles range from forced air garage heaters to radiant garage heaters. Each style has it own advantages and drawbacks depending on what you are wanting to use the space for.

Installing a Radiant Garage Heater


For example a radiant garage heater will heat the concrete and the items in the space,
and not necessarily the air in the room. When installing a radiant garage heater there is also a thermostat, smart or not that is installed so that you can set your desired temperature.

Keep in mind as a radiant garage heater does not heat the air if you are adjusting your thermostat by ten or fifteen degrees warmer this can take some time. A radiant garage heater also comes with a little bit more of an upfront cost for the unit.

However, the benefit to a radiant garage heater is that it will keep your electricity bills lower
as a radiant heater does not have a blower motor that is turning on and off
via electricity on a regular basis.

For people wanting to keep airborne particles in their garage to a minimum installing
a radiant garage heater will do just that.
Keeping dust and particles out of your
air by not using a fan or blower.

Installing a Forced Air Garage Heater


Forced air garage heaters are great, they can be turned on or off at the flip of a switch.
Setting a specific temperature is quick an simple on a newly installed thermostat.

They can warm up a space in a short period of time.

Force air garage heaters act in a very similar way that your furnace does
using a fan to heat the air in the space. This is a much quicker way to heat a space
but not always a more efficient way. A forced air garage heater has a
blower motor that will turn on and off each time the unit
produces heat drawing more electricity than a radiant garage heater.

Some house keeping to keep in mind when installing a forced air garage heater, they require a dedicated breaker. If there is not an open breaker with sufficient amperage a certified electrician
will be required to upgrade either the breaker or the electrical panel.

In some cases a sub panel is installed to accommodate the electrical requirements
of installing a new forced air garage heater.

The benefit of a forced air garage heater is that they work to heat up the space quite quickly.  

Convection Garage Heaters

Convection heaters rely on a closed flame to heat a liquid or a heating element to warm the air within the unit. A convection heater generally uses the natural air flow of the room to circulate the air to heat the space.

Due to the even heat produced by convection heaters the are some of the most economical ways to heat your garage space.
They do however take a lot longer to heat a space than their force air garage heater counterparts.

Radiant heaters can be a great solution for woodworking as they do not stir up the dust in the space.
Radiant heaters use reflectors to direct infrared heat into the space,
they do not work by heating the air but by heating objects surrounding the radiant heater.
