Garage heater

4 posts in this topic

Whats better?  A blue flame or infrared vent free heater for the garage.   Looking for a easy way to heat a single stall garage without gas lines, electricity, or venting.

There is no such thing as BETTER unvented heater . Do it right get a vented system and add combustion air and a C O detector.

Better safe then sorry.

for what it's worth I have a huge infrared gas heater that is vented.  One of those Karibe big units and I've had it for over 13 years.  You see them at hockey rinks and repair shops, they must be good for that use.

When my kids were little I wanted them to not have to get in a freezing car every morning so we installed this and ran it almost all Winter.  For that is was great.  Now I only want to use it when I'm doing a project in the garage and it takes a long, long time to get the garage warm vs my neighbors forced air units.

Depending on how you are going to use it keep the above in mind.

Can't beat those nifty ceiling mount heaters. Run them off a thermostat and your good to go. They have them reasonably priced and as big or small as needed.

    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.

    • So I'm finally getting ready to get the boat wet for the first time this year.   I noticed last night the steering wheel is very tough to turn.  I did done research on some older threads on this site containing to my problem.   One tip I read was to check the big nut next to the motor on the steering arm.  Its printed on the nut -caution**tighten.  Some one said that nut should be loose.  Mine was wrenched tight apparently.  Does the warning on the nut mean , make sure its tight or do not wrench tight???  Btw it's a 05' mercury 115 if that makes any difference.   I will also re lube and clean the components also to see if it makes a difference.   Thanks for any input!!

    • I will admit to this :   there are a couple of crystal clear, cold lakes in Yukon,  within a mile or so of my cabin, where you COULD actually eat and enjoy pike. They did not compare to some nice Grayling but  you COULD eat them. I'm not a fish eater unless it is fresh king salmon or kind crab but quite a few folks would eat the pike. And I will admit to enjoying a chunk of walleye now and then so long as it is slathered in hot sauce and I have had 13 double Makers Marks. But hey!.....you fellas enjoy them!
