The Benefits of Heating Your Garage

July 29 2015

Garages are not naturally warm, and it’s not uncommon (especially in the winter months) to dress for the Arctic when you shuffle into the cold, icy box to get to your car, to carry on with your wood work, or to clamber onto your treadmill and start your daily warm up routine.

The truth is, even in the summer months, our beautiful little island is not accustomed to blistering beat 24/7 364 days a year. First thing in the morning and late at night, our temperatures do drop considerably- that’s what happens when you live closer to the Arctic Circle than to the Tropic of Cancer!

Sometimes a cold garage is just what you want, especially if you’ve got your freezer tucked away, out of sight in the corner keeping all of your meats and frozen goodies nice and cold. Other times, however, when the cold creeps into your car during the Autumn and Winter months, when the ice is heavy on the pavements and frost has covered your grass like crisp icing sugar, the last thing you want is for your car to freeze up.

If you use your garage for more recreational purposes such as your own, personal, workshop; a lovely environment where everything’s in its place (no matter how messy it may seem to others), the last thing you want is to find is that the sudden drop in temperature has made spending a full day in your garage almost unbearable. If you have an industrial garage, your employees aren’t going to want to spend all day under cars in the freezing cold either!

This is where garage heaters come in. Even in the summer, you and your garage deserve a warm environment to unwind in without fearing the nip of a cold!

Warm Air Heaters

The best and most efficient way of keeping your garage warm is through a warm air heater. A leap and a bound ahead of its water boiler cousin, warm air heaters work to force air around your garage, reaching those tiny, fiddly crevasses your average water boiler heater could never reach before.  Wouldn’t it be lovely to spend those cold hours of the day nice and snug and warm in your garage for once? The lack of insulation has meant previously that heat from radiators were never able to full reach the entire garage. Instead their heat escaped through the brick work and flooring, reduced to a mere percentage of your garage. Updating to an air heater will allow the air to be pushed around your garage, heating up more area without immediately escaping!

The ingenious way air heaters force air around your garage means that you stay warmer for longer. Subsequently you now have no need to keep the heating on 24/7 or turn it up, allowing you to save on your energy consumption and spend less money with your bills!
