Use Your Garage All Year Round with an Easy to Maintain Heating System

Have you ever considered an overhead gas heater for the garage? You might associate them with commercial spaces, but they can be a great addition to a residential garage if you like a warm, dry car in the morning, or if you use your garage as a workshop or utility space.

Natural gas heaters are the way to go for this application. Initial cost may be a little higher than electric space heaters, but today’s gas heaters are more efficient, safer, cheaper to run, and an all-around better investment.

We will assess your garage for the perfect model and placement based on a heat loss determination. And, in no time, you’ll be tinkering in your garage again.

For a heated garage, aside from occasionally cleaning the fan blades, little maintenance is required. On request, we can also come by to check on gas pressure, electronics and carbon monoxide levels.

Our Calgary Plumbing & Heating experts are ready to assist you, give us a call.

Garage Unit Heaters

Large scale unit heaters are a familiar sight in commercial garages and warehouses; smaller, low-profile versions are available for residential garages. These are small gas-fired forced air heaters, and some are even made locally. The circulation of air by this type of heater means fast warming time and aids in drying surfaces in the garage

Garage Heater Installation Calgary

It’s a fairly simple and straightforward installation to add natural gas heat to the garage. A licensed gas fitter runs the gas supply out and properly vents the heater, and if your garage is attached or built-in, this is especially easy to do as the gas line is usually readily available. These heaters are mounted high up either from the ceiling or the wall.

The BTU rating of your garage heater should be selected carefully. A heater that’s too small won’t do the job satisfactorily, and a heater that’s too large will waste energy in the long run, since they only reach peak efficiency at their full operating temperature. If the heat cuts off once the unit has barely warmed up, you’re effectively lowering the efficiency rating.

Garage Tube Heaters

You’ll see this type in hockey arenas– long gas-fired radiant heaters that heat the surfaces they are directed at, rather than heating and circulating air. These heaters are very efficient, but you have to be careful with placement; too close to your vehicle and they can scorch the paint. Higher ceilings are best with this heater type.

The size of the garage heater you need will depend on the size of your garage and how much heat you need for the area. If you need to heat a two-car garage, for example, you will likely need a unit that is rated for at least 10,000 BTUs. For larger garages, you may need a unit rated for up to 20,000 BTUs or more.

Yes, a garage heater is generally safe to use if it is installed and used properly. However, it is important to follow the manufacturer‘s instructions regarding installation, use, and maintenance.

It is important to ensure that the garage is well-ventilated to prevent the build-up of carbon monoxide and other gases.

When looking for a garage heater, you should look for safety features such as overheat protection, tipover protection, and a builtin thermostat.

Additionally, you should look for a heater with high-quality housing that is heat and impact-resistant and insulated to reduce fire risk. Finally, make sure to check the heater’s safety rating and read the user manual to ensure it meets safety requirements.
