Garage & Shop Heaters

Outdoor Patio Heaters offers a wide range of garage and shop heaters designed to meet the specific heating needs of residential and commercial garages and shops. Our garage and shop heaters often play a crucial role in creating a comfortable and productive workspace, especially during the cold winter months. Whether you are a hobbyist working on DIY projects or a professional mechanic in a commercial garage, having a reliable heating solution is essential.

Garages and small shops have specific heating needs because they are often open-air spaces, creating many drafty areas throughout the space. To combat this, we offer both electric and natural gas garage heaters you need to keep warm from several leading brands, and we carry models with different operation modes to suit your needs. Our selection of shop heaters includes both the smaller forced-air units and the longer Calcana or Schwank models. The larger heaters can be mounted overhead and either attached to the ceiling or to an adjoining wall for the best heating advantages.

No matter what your specific need for garage or shop heating is, you can find the right model of heater for your needs here at Outdoor Patio Heaters.

Gas vs. Electric Heaters

When it comes to garage and shop heaters, there are two primary options: gas and electric infrared heaters. The choice between the two depends on your specific circumstances and heating requirements.

Garage Electric Heaters

At Outdoor Patio Heaters, we offer electric fan-forced and infrared heaters that are ideal for garages and shops. These heaters are known for their efficiency and ease of installation. Electric heaters, like the Solara and Infratech models, emit infrared heat that warms objects and surfaces directly rather than heating just the air. This targeted heating approach ensures that everything in your workspace stays warmer.

Garage Gas & Propane Heaters

For those who prefer natural gas or propane heaters, Outdoor Patio Heaters also offers ventable gas heaters, such as the Calcana PH40-A and CAL heaters. Gas heaters are an excellent choice for larger spaces, but it is crucial to note that they require proper ventilation to prevent the release of harmful carbon monoxide. Adequate intake and exhaust systems are essential for safer and more efficient operation of gas heaters.

Installation and Safety Information

Proper installation and maintenance are critical for the safe and effective operation of garage and shop heaters. Always adhere to the manufacturer's advice and installation instructions provided with the heater. Regularly cleaning and inspecting your heater is also essential to prevent dust buildup and maintain its efficiency. 

When dealing with electric heaters, make sure they are correctly connected to a suitable power source, and ensure that your electrical system can adequately support the heater's requirements. For gas heaters, it is advisable to consult with a professional like us at Outdoor Patio Heaters to help guarantee proper ventilation and the correct installation of gas lines. Moreover, enhancing safety measures in your workspace is crucial; consider installing devices like carbon monoxide detectors and fire extinguishers to provide added protection for you and your surroundings.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Should I Use Gas or Electric Heaters for My Garage or Shop?

If you have the necessary power capacity (e.g., 220 volts with 20-30 amps) and want efficient, targeted heating, electric infrared heaters are an excellent choice. Gas heaters are suitable for larger spaces but require proper ventilation. Fortunately, we also offer ventless gas heaters that are ideal for garages and shops!

Are Gas Heaters Safe to Use in Confined Areas?

Gas heaters in confined areas must be vented to prevent the release of carbon monoxide. Adequate ventilation ensures clean intake air for efficient operation and helps prevent carbon monoxide poisoning.
