In todays homes where the maximizing of space is of the utmost importance the garage is no longer a place relegated for forgotten storage. The modern garage has a number of roles - everything from workshop to car maintenance. But temperature control - expected and taken for granted in our homes - has rarely kept pace in this additional space. And the result is often an uncomfortable place that is vulnerable to all weather conditions; certainly not conducive to an effective work environment. Luckily with an efficient and safe garage heater you can utilize this space year round and comfortably complete any projects at hand.
Larger garage spaces or a garage that is used frequently as a work space may warrant a larger more comprehensive garage heater. These units are powered by natural or propane gas and come in the form of standing units or overhead systems that distribute warm air to the entire space. While a gas garage heater is more efficient for larger areas they must be properly vented. Because this garage heater uses gas there are fumes that must be vented to the outside. Further it is wise to have a gas garage heater professionally installed to ensure optimum safety.
Another option in terms of a garage heater is to extend your heating duct work into the garage itself thus connecting it to the internal temperature of your home. For those who use their garage as another room in their home this is the most cost-effective and efficient option. A modern and efficient garage heater can add instant space to your home allowing you to use your garage as you would any other room in your house. With proper temperature control you can enjoy your garage no matter what the temperature outside your front door.
Garage doors for a long time were manually operated forcing the driver to stop the car and come out of the cart to open the door and the take some time to close it once they have driven the car into the safety of the garage. All these steps made old type garage doors very inconvenient as compared to the modern garage doors. With the increase in population and the amount of activity that every individual has to take part in many people do not have the time to perform all the above procedures just to be able to pack or leave their packing.
The Structure of the framed garage should start with waterproof bottom plates secured by anchor bolts in the concrete slab. The walls should be built with 2 by 4 studs 16 inches apart to guarantee a structurally strong wall and 8 feet high. Rafters should be 2 by 6 studs 16 inches apart to support snow and other elements. Make sure the rafters are securely embedded into the top plates of the walls with the bird mouth cut method. Once the sheathing is installed on the walls and roof vinyl siding is the most recommended siding as it is the most maintenance free and economical in the market.
