It's funny you mention heat as I'm looking for alternative solutions to not working in such cold weather too. I think this summer I'm going to try to install the garage door insulation from Home Depot and see what that does. Hopefully it makes a difference.

I'm not sure what I'm going to try... but what I have is definitely not working... haha. The garage door insulation may be an option?

I have one of these badboys. Heats my garage warm and toasty in no time. All i got is the roof insulated no wall or garage door either. I got this one instead of a bullet because it has an oxygen depletion sensor(no more burnt air outside). And a tip over shutoff. The grill tank sits right in it and is a roll around unit.

The grill tank lasts like 8-10 hours on low and medium. And on high its lime 5-7 hours. And on high its 18,000 btu. I got mine at menards and it was even cheaper then the one in the picture. It was like 75-100 dollars

not to get off topic but to help anybody freezing in a small space (deer stand) take a metal coffee can (if you can find one anymore) fill it with toilet paper and rubbing alcohol and light it. blue flame smokeless heater, no real smell either.

The smell comes later when you realize you burned your last roll of tp! :shocked:

There are some good heat ideas. I have a propane bullet heater. I have used it in the past, and it works good. It was given to me, so I have absolutely no complaint. I wouldn't mind an infrared heater of some sort...the he bullet is ok if I am alone, but too loud to have conversations around it.

I use one of those oil filled radiant heaters in my 1/2 insulated 12x24.. It makes it warm enough to work in there with a t-shirt on most days..

It's been in the 20's here the last couple of days...I'm not even going to try to see what it will do...LOL Staying in the house.......

I typically used the bullet heater to warm up the area and break the chill before I go in to work and then cut it off. I do like the oil filled heaters, but they are a slow go source of heat, but they do work well.

Ive had that inferred heater on high in my 25x25 garage with just the ceiling insulated frost on the inside of the walls and garage door in 10 to 15 degree weather and been working in a light jacket. I would let it heat up for 10 to 15 minutes first. Best thing is since its roll around you can bring it right up next to you and roast clean out of there if u wanted to.

I know this was posted a while back but I'd like to add my shop heat solution. My shop is a small 2 story block building with electricity ran from the house. I installed a compressor large enough to run a small media blaster which caused a brown out every time it came on, especially if the dryer was running. My welder has a 11k generator so I started running the compressor with it. I routed the exhaust along the wall under the second level floor to a convenient spot outside which created a really nice heater.
I'd like to say it was my plan all along but in real life I never gave it a thought. Now, if I could reverse the process in the summer.
