    I've used the kerosene heaters and the propane heaters and they work good but if you dont have good venting for air flow, you'll get a headache real fast. I ended up putting in an electric and have been much happy with it. Just got one of those forced air wall inserts. Nailed it to the wall and ran the wire into the fuse box.

    Watch out with Gas fumes. There was a recent post on PBB of a guy up in BC that had a electric heater going got messing with some fuel lines. The electric element ignighted the fumes. caught him on fire. wife put him out got everybody out of the house and by the time the Fire Department got there the whole house was a total loss.

    I guess that would apply to gas heaters also, or any heater with a large open flame.

    Do you have a picture of this girl "Heather"? Aren't all girls portable? What is she going to be doing in your garage? /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    Seriously though... This is the garage heater that I want: http://www.reznoronline.com/mpd/pub/reznor/products/v3/UDASINDX.htm No flame is exposed to the garage. It sucks outside air into a sealed combustion chamber and then sends the exhaust back outside. No fumes from inside the garage can get into where the flame resides. It gets hard plumbed into the natural gas (or propane) system and runs using a thermostat, so it keeps the temp very stable. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    Dang HarryH3,

    That heater is SWEEEET! /forums/images/icons/smile.gif How much does something like that run, just in case I wanted to try to get it past the Financial Appropriations Committee (otherwise known as my Wife /forums/images/icons/smirk.gif ) Are we talking flowers and evening out or are we in the jewelry territory?

    I have one of the portable propane ones now, but the fumes can get a little intense, and I'm not terribly comfortable working on some projects with an open flame around. Plus refilling the bottle all the time is a bit tedious.

    Thanks!
    Sean

    I priced the previous model in that line last fall. The one with the sealed combustion chamber cost $924 plus installation. /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif So yeah, we're talkin' jewelry here! /forums/images/icons/wink.gif There's a similar model that doesn't have the sealed combustion chamber that goes for around $500 plus install. I'm saving for the sealed one. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif Expensive, but you never have to fill up a tank or have the heater in the way or worry about blowing yourself to kingdom come!
