WHAT KIND OF GARAGE HEATER WILL KEEP MY GARAGE WARM IN A CALGARY WINTER?
If you’re like many Calgarians, your garage serves several valuable purposes. Aside from protecting your vehicles from the elements, it is likely a workspace, man cave, or she shed as well. If the frigid winters make your garage unusable for many months, it may be time to consider a garage heater.
Many homes also have pipes in the garage that need protection from freezing temperatures to avoid bursting. Townhomes, in particular, tend to have this situation that requires garage heater installation in Calgary.
Our cold and snowy winters also mean that many residents enjoy outdoor winter sports such as skiing and hockey. A climate-controlled garage gives you a storage space that can protect your valuable gear.
In mild climates, residents can get by with wearing a few extra layers while working in their garage. Not here in Calgary. Not if you’d like to stay attached to your fingers, ears, and toes. Harmony Heating & Air Conditioning is the garage heater installation company you can trust to make your garage comfortable year-round.
What Are My Garage Heater Options?
There are many choices for heating your garage to make it usable for your needs. For occasional use, an electric space heater may be suitable. This option will not provide consistent protection from the winter temperatures, however. And it only heats a small portion of the garage at any given time.
Adding extra insulation and installing weather stripping around doors and windows will provide some help in keeping your outdoor workspace warmer. It is unlikely, however, to give you enough protection to make the space comfortable enough for consistent use.
Combustion space heaters that run on propane or kerosene can provide heat quickly in a garage, but they also require you to open the door to allow for ventilation. These options will not produce consistent heating to protect pipes and vehicles. They are best suited for a short-term solution until your permanent garage heater is in place.
Through our years of serving the Calgary community during the harsh winters, the Harmony Heating & Air Conditioning team has become experts at garage heater repair, replacement, and installation. We have found that a gas garage heater tends to be the most consistent and reliable heat source for your workspace. Since it vents outside the home, it is also the safest choice.
