To help size the heater and estimate monthly energy costs, consult manufacturers and dealers. Most residential garages require heaters with a capacity of 30,000 or 45,000 Btu. Your heater size depends on the garage’s square footage, ceiling height and insulation, so don’t guess. And don’t oversize your heater—especially if you intend to leave it on (even at a reduced temperature) all winter. An oversize unit heater cycles too often and wastes energy.

If you’ll be working on wood projects or using spray finishes, choose a heater with a separate combustion chamber. They burn fresh outside air instead of the dust or paint-laden air inside a garage. There’s a slight fire danger using a conventional heater, and the dust and paint particles will cause burner problems that require service calls.

If you have an attached garage, mount the thermostat on the common wall between the garage and the house and away from the heated airflow. In a detached garage, mount it on the wall below the heater.

We recommend a ceiling-mounted, gas-fired, forced-air unit heater. Some installers recommend infrared heaters because they heat objects instead of air. You’ll be warmed and so will the floor (if it’s free of vehicles). But you won’t be happy with the cold tools inside your tool chest. Infrared heaters are no more energy efficient than forced-air heaters, and they cost about twice as much.
