Question on heating a warehouse

Question to all of you box owners out there. My HVAC is not working and the tech said it could be a week or longer. I have 3800sq ft of warehouse space that is freezing cold now. Has anyone had experience with this? I have 4 large space heaters but they don't make a dent. I wanted to do propane torch like for constructions sites but my wife is hesitant to do that inside. I would appreciate any feedback.

Its only a temporary issue so I would say just get word out to your clients that they'll need to layer up a bit for the next week. do you have a small office area or something that can be a "warming hut"?

I guess it all depends on how cold it gets, but in Phoenix we don't use heaters. At it's coldest one morning when I was at a 6am class the temperature was 39 degrees. We carried on like it was no big deal.

I use this heater, I have a 3200sqft warehouse with 24ft ceilings. I'll run it for about the first 10-15mins of class or thru the warmup. Hope that helps.
