Re: Any Idea for Spcae Heating for Facility?

I work out in a 32,000 sq ft. warehouse with 30' ceilings. Heating the entire area for myself and my few training partners early in the morning just isn't an option. I found a couple Presto heat dishes on Craigslist for about $30 and they are awesome. They aren't a space heater, but they direct the heat right at you. They claim it uses 1/3 of the energy as a normal space heater and are 3 times warmer. Seems about right. One at each platform is more than enough. We trained at 6 AM this morning and the gym was 39 degrees when we got there. After about 10 minutes we had to turn the heater down to low because we were sweating bullets. Those things put out a lot of heat.
