For a garage that is used as an extension to ones home - as a separate and utilized room - a more permanent garage heater that is controlled by a thermostat is the most effective option. A thermostat will allow you to maintain a consistent temperature so that the garage is ready to be used at any time - regardless of the weather.
Jammed Doors: Do you feel like your garage door has turned into a block of ice and wouldnt move? Cold weather can do this to your door. The moisture during the winter season causes the wood on the door to swell and also freezes the tracks. The solution is to increase the heat in the garage for about 30 minutes to loosen the tracks and the door as well. The heat will take away the moisture. If there is no heating equipment in the garage use a blow drier or vacuum blower to do the job. After opening the door clear the ice and water that has collected beneath the door.
If you are thinking about building a detached framed garage with garage plans it is helpful to know the best construction features to use. For best results and to build the best garage plan it is important to use a 6 bag mix of concrete when you pour your garage slab. The 6 stands for 6 bags of concrete per yard mixed. Anything less than a 6 bag mix is not strong enough. Compacting the 4 inches of crushed stone is also important. Compacting the crushed stone assures that the concrete will be sealed air tight and will eliminate any cracking in the concrete slab. Before the concrete is poured be sure to use wire mesh reinforcement this mesh should lay over the crushed stone.
Finding a garage heater that works for your needs depends largely on the size of your work area and frequency of use. If you have a smaller garage space or you use the garage as a work space only infrequently then a small electric space heater may be enough to suit your needs. The smaller electric units used as a garage heater are compact efficient and use a minimum of electricity to achieve a maximum of comfort.
