Well, no way I am doing what I did last winter and doing all my stuff in the 25 degree weather. This year I'll be buying a heater. My question is, is kerosene safe for a garage? And why does this one require electricity? The guy at Lowe's said that with this one, I could go out in my garage in my underwear and be comfortable after letting this thing heat up for 15 minutes.
What do you guys think? Btw, I get 10% off because my friend works there.

dude just get a space heater those will heat like no other
hit all around it to loosen it up, then hit it from the backside
I ran 2 space heaters last year and they didn't do shit. Ask Zx2fast.
i am talking about one of the long tube heaters
nevermind the heater that you are looking at is what i am talking about sorry. those heaters you can go out there in the nude and be comfortable
but just go for the electric on we have one i n the shop back home and the shop is 96 by 48 and we have 2 bc of the big rigs coming in and the garage being so tall they are nice
I live in a 1955 Ranch, the wiring in it sucks. It won't hold a huge heater.
i did too but it worked we jus ran new wires from the power pole
That salamander heater will cook you alive or simply keep you warm. Whichever you prefer. You'll wanna crack the back door (fumes/ smell), but the heater will take up the slack from cold coming in.
Dude, that's exactly what the guy at lowe's said. He said it can melt your face, or keep you comfy. He also said to crack the garage door. Awesome, I'll be picking this up with my first Circuit City check then.
im telling you they are really nice. and is they last forever we have had one for going 0n 6 years and dayys just picked up the other on about a year ago when we mad the barn bigger

Get the one the guy at Lowes showed you ie. the one in the link. The more BTU's it puts out the more the space it's able to heat comfortably. That will be a good size for your garage. You can shop around on-line or try Home Depo, Wal-mart or K-mart. They all carry the same styles just different brands and of course the prices are different as well....
You don't have to get one that has a thermostat either. The thermostat on those works just like the ones in your home. When it senses the room is the temp you selected, it shuts it's self off. The other kind and cheaper kind is what I have. Which is a plug in and it turns on, unplug it and it shuts its self off.
Mines an 80K BTU Husky unit bought from Home Depo. Had it for about 4 years now. My wife and I use it around this time of year to sit out on our back padio. We have it sitting about 10ft from us pointed in our direction, I never get cold while I'm grilling!! Last year I used it out side in the freezing open at 29* and I still kept warm.....god love space heaters...
