Re: Best 120v heater

Every electric heater I have tried is totally useless in my non-insulated, drafty garage. I can't fathom how cold it gets where you are. I use a propane heater and it works great. I turn it on ten or fifteen minutes to knock the chill off. My carbon monoxide sensor has never made a peep.

Re: Best 120v heater

The best 120V heater is a 220V heater. I've been thinking of running a new circuit to my garage so I can add a better heater. My current 110V heater doesn't take the chill off on the coldest days.

Re: Best 120v heater

We live in very similar winter conditions. A 120V heater will be virtually useless from mid December on.

I have a 5KW unit heater in my garage. From mid-December to end of March it is usually on for 1-2 hours prior to training. My wife turns it on when she leaves for work and then it is on for most of the day. Even at that the bars, KBS etc are chilly and when it is -30C (yes it is coming) for a couple weeks it is almost to cold all the time.
