What Are My Options for Heating my Garage or Barn?
There are several options for heating your outdoor buildings. The most popular are the unit heater [fan coil] or infrared heaters.
The unit heaters are generally the less expensive choice and can provide adequate heat for large spaces, their downside is that they tend to move a great deal of hot air around, not necessarily the best when dealing with dust or other materials that may be affected by moving air. They can also be noisy as the unit operates.
The infrared heater is a great second option and it provides an effective solution for heating. Working very much like the sun, it sends out waves of heat that are absorbed by the objects that the waves come in contact with. They are very popular in hockey arenas and other commercial spaces. It’s only downside is that the unit must be installed carefully with distance factors considered to prevent any damage to cars or other surfaces that might be subject to overheating.
