Best Garage and Space Heaters to Heat Your Shop This Winter

The leaves are changing and the air is cooling in Alaska, but that doesn’t mean you’re done working on your summer projects. If you are still working on home renovations or work projects in your garage, you may want to think about investing in a garage or space heater while you work. Having a garage or space heater is the best way to continue working diligently on your summer project that is now leading into fall and winter.

In this blog, we are going to get into why garage and space heaters are a necessity this fall and winter and our top recommendations for ways to keep your shop warm.

Want to finish those projects without freezing up? Give us a call!


Why Garage Heaters are an Absolute Necessity This Winter

Space heaters are devices that work to heat a singular space or room, in this case, a garage as opposed to central heating, which heats multiple connected areas. Space heaters come in the form of garage heaters and are powered electrically or by a burnable fuel like natural gas or propane.

You can essentially take a space heater anywhere such as your work office, garage, bedrooms, or on the go with you when you travel. Space heaters are small and compact, but they work efficiently and effectively so you can continue working on your projects comfortably. Think about it – who wants to be sitting at their office desk shivering because the heat in your building isn’t properly working? Or what if you’ve been working on a summer project that you want to have done by November but the cold air is making it difficult to get anything done? The last thing anyone wants to do is be out freezing, especially while trying to get work done.

If you are cold and uncomfortable, you’ll notice that your hands start to tense up, making it harder for your hands and fingers to operate because of how cold they are. This makes it extremely difficult to get any work accomplished. It makes it harder to be able to have full strength when your hands and feet feel weak and brittle. You want to be able to feel comfortable and cozy while you work because it will help you get the job done faster.

We all know that Alaska in the winter is brutal, which is why it is especially important to start considering purchasing a space heater or garage heater right now. Don’t wait until the very last minute to realize you should’ve installed one earlier – you’ll thank yourself.


Reasons to Invest in a Garage Heater

A garage heater can go a long way and has a multitude of benefits. Garage heaters don’t have to be just for your workshop. Check out the many reasons you should consider installing a garage heater.

Keeps Your Vehicles Warm

Garage heaters can be a way to keep your car warm and decrease any chances of your vehicle getting damaged if left outside in the cold or a winter storm.

Do you despise having to defrost your car every morning before heading to work? Waiting for your car to defrost can feel like forever and can increase your chances of being late for work. If you invest in a garage heater and keep your car in the garage overnight, you won’t have to worry about this problem occurring every time.

Extra Warmth for Rooms

Did you know that garage heaters also work to keep the rooms above the garage warm as well? That’s right – the people in those rooms above the garage will be ecstatic once they see the wonders a garage heater can provide for them. Especially in multi-story homes, a cold garage can mean a cold top-story as well. This is true too for commercial buildings if you have an office or customer area located directly above your workspace.

Pets and Plants Need Warmth Too

Garage heaters and space heaters also work to keep pets and plants warm if they live near or in the garage. If you have tile in your room downstairs where your pets and plants are, it may be hard for them to find warmth because of how cold the tile can get overnight.

Choosing the Right Garage Heater

Garage and space heaters work to maintain warmer temperatures all throughout the house or office space because they prevent the cool air from seeping in. Finishing up your summer projects when the temperatures start to drop in your garage could seem very unappealing if you are trying to tinker with home renovations and other hobbies.

Choosing the appropriate garage heater doesn’t have to be a difficult decision. In fact, we make it easy for you. Check out some of the best garage heaters Lennox has to offer that will provide you with maximum comfort while also keeping your bills low.
