Looking for some of the great non-fishing knowledge that IDO can provide. Sometime this summer I would like to finish our garage and heat it. When we purchased the house 2.5 years ago, I think the previous owners were in the process of finishing it. All of the walls are insulated, about half of the walls have been mud/tapped and the other half just got sheetrock on them. The ceiling is open through the rafters up to the roof. I love the ease and convenience of storing things in the rafters, but we will put up a ceiling and insulate it. Get new garage doors as well.
The garage is 30′ x 32′, attached to the house. The house is heated by propane.
My question is what is the best, cheapest, most convenient heat source to keep the garage roughly around 40-45 degrees in the winter? When talking cheapest, I more so mean long term costs associated with it rather than just short term initial cost. I’d also like to be able to heat up to 60 or so when I know I’d be out there for a few hours. Another thing to keep in mind is that our garage does house both of our vehicles, so in general each garage door is going to open at least once in the morning and once in the evening, losing most of the heat.
Also, will be great addition if someone shares their experience with Mr. Heater F232000, these reviewers can be tricky time to time, you know them
