Install a Garage Heater
For people living in Saskatoon, or any part of Saskatchewan for that matter, the garage is a space that can only really be used during certain months of the year, unless it’s heated. Anyone who wants to make the most of this space can easily do so by installing a garage heater. Today’s post will not only share some of the top reasons all homeowners can benefit from installing garage heaters, but also some of the things you may want to consider when choosing a system that will best satisfy your needs.
Contrary to popular belief, garage heaters aren’t just for mechanics with shops that are used on a daily basis. While anyone who likes to do their own car repairs will benefit from a heated garage, the following is a list of benefits that most homeowners can enjoy:
- Never get into a cold car in the winter time again! Plus, when the oil in your vehicle is kept at a warmer temperature, the car starts more easily (which is great for the longevity of your vehicle’s various parts).
- Items like paint can’t be stored in an unheated garage, which means they’ll take up space in your basement, etc. A garage that’s kept at a comfortable temperature year-round will provide you with ample space for storage.
- For homes with bedrooms above the garage, these rooms are always cold unless the garage is heated. If this is the case with your house, the best garage heater for your space will keep your garage warm while also helping to reduce the amount of energy required to heat your home.
- For projects you don’t want to do inside your home, a heated garage allows you to take your work out of the house without having to work outside, where you’ll be exposed to the elements.
Choosing the Best Garage Heater for Your Needs
At JOB Heating & Air Conditioning, we install Lennox garage heaters because they produce what is, in our opinion, the best garage heater on the market. With that said, you’ll still need to decide which type of heater to install. We find heaters that run on natural or propane gas offer a more cost-effective solution than heaters that require electricity, even if there is a slightly higher up-front cost to purchase them. If you’re running an electrical heater on a regular basis, during the coldest months of the year, you could easily spend hundreds of dollars each month just to heat the garage. This is definitely something you’ll want to consider when you choose a heater for your space.
You will also want to ensure that the heater you choose is an appropriate size for your space. If you’re unsure about the size of the furnace your garage requires, give JOB Heating & Air Conditioning a call and we’ll be happy to help.
