Why You Should Invest in an Electric Garage Heater This Winter

If you’re looking for an easy and affordable way to keep your garage warm this winter, look no further than an electric garage heater from Gas Outdoor Patio Heaters. Gas Outdoor Patio Heaters is a renowned manufacturer and installer of high-quality heaters. Our products are incredibly easy to install and are perfect for heating even the largest garages.

Recent years have seen an increase in people converting their garages into habitable extensions of their homes. They are remodeled into office spaces, additional bedrooms, media rooms, and even workshops. However, because the vast majority of garages are not served by a standard HVAC system, they can become uninhabitable during the severe winter months. In the past, most people relied on space heaters to keep warm. A better solution would be an electric garage heater. Below, we’ll highlight the most important reasons why you should invest in one.

Makes Your Garage Livable During Winter

Because most garages are not equipped with an official air conditioning system, they can become freezing during the winter months. However, with the help of our high-end electric garage heaters, this problem can be quickly resolved. If you have a workshop, you can now devote more time to the things that are genuinely important rather than worrying about the weather outside. This has the potential to increase your overall productivity.

If you’ve converted your garage into an extra office, bedroom, or media room, we have good news: installing an electric garage heater can transform your space into a luxurious haven where you can watch movies or spend more time socializing with family and friends.

Easy to Install

An electric garage heater is quite simple to install. Although installation costs vary depending on several factors, any skilled do-it-yourselfer will have no issue setting up and installing our heaters. But due to the possibility of dealing with electrical wiring in the garage, we strongly recommend that you have an electrician perform the installation instead. Or if you are local our expert team can assist with any garage heater installations in the area; call for pricing.


Because most garages do not have HVAC equipment installed, most homeowners rely on space heaters to keep warm during cold months. While moderately effective, space heaters can be quite dangerous. Hardly a winter goes by before we’ve heard of a horrific account of a devastating fire that was sparked by a space heater. Installing an electric garage heater is a safer, more secure alternative to cheap space heaters.

Equipment & Vehicle Protection

Vehicles can still be parked in a heated garage during winter. In reality, it is preferable to parking on the street in the cold. In addition to the apparent protection that a heated garage provides for your vehicles, it can help to extend the battery life of your cars. It can also protect the exterior of your automobile against damage caused by snow and hail.

Less Noisy

Typically, there are three types of garage heaters: natural gas, propane, and electric. While gas and propane heaters are significantly less expensive to operate than their electric counterparts, there are other safety considerations with the use of these other types of heaters and they are considerably noisier. Please remember to always follow the manufacturers safety guidelines for optimal use. This can be a problem if your garage serves as an office or a spare bedroom. If noise is a concern, electric garage heaters are a better option than gas or propane garage heaters.
