I have a 50,000 btu in my 24x26. I have zero complaints, but I keep mine at about 52-55 degrees throughout the cold season.

If you are looking to heat it only occasionally, look at fan forced as it would recover faster.

Infrared is great, it's my favorite.

I have some 20ft long tubes in my shop. when I need heat I just turn them on and I am toasty, shut them off when done, they save a bundle over forced air but....it's a different knind of heating.

Infrared warms up objects not air, it means any object including you, if you are on it's direct path you will get warm otherwise it's still cold unltil all the objects are warmed up then air will get warmed up too.

Example, if I work on a vehicle underneath the heater I am doing fine, if I work underenath the vehicle I have no heat since I get no direct exposuure.

I hope it makes sense.

Forced air instead warms up the air first then objects gradually warm up, it's completely the opposite.

It depends on your needs, get a couple of estimates on costs, I have a 40ft x 160ft building I cannot afford to heat it all, so I have to go infrared for "on demand" heat.
