Gas Heaters For Your Garage

Whether you are a handyman who enjoys working in your garage on do-it-yourself projects for your home or a lover of motor vehicles, there has almost certainly been a time when you wished you had a greater level of heat in your chosen workplace. Insufficient heat is enough to force even the hardiest person inside, reducing work efficiency and sometimes resulting in a complete write-off of a chosen work day in favor of more comfortable surroundings. However, when it comes to working on your beautiful vehicle, or putting together your latest home improvement project, this is sometimes not an option. This forces one of two possible scenarios on you:

  • You wear thick, bulky clothing, which will interfere in your work efficiency
  • You freeze for hours on end, causing discomfort, displeasure and risk getting sick as a result

Since neither of these two options are ideal, we have come up with a third option for getting your important work done in a timely fashion: gas heaters. For decades, portable gas heaters have provided work to tradespeople and private individuals alike through some of the toughest conditions thinkable. There are many reasons why one might use a gas heater in their garage:

  • They provide a source of constant heat, reducing your clothing requirements and thereby giving you a larger range of motion.
  • They reduce the chance of catching illness due to reduced temperatures.
  • They allow you to focus on the work at hand instead of how cold you feel.
  • They are not reliant on electricity and are notorious for being sturdy and hard to break.

If you live in areas with cold winters, then you know what effect biting cold can have on your body when you are trying to perform manual tasks. Hands get shaky and numb, your eyes and nose begin running, your throat begins to tighten and all you can think about is that nice warm couch in your living room. When there is moisture in the air, this leads to chills, overall shivers, and inevitably, illness. A gas heater operating in your garage will not only create a comfortable ambient temperature to work in, but will also reduce moisture in the atmosphere and limit the impact of the cold temperatures on your ability to work effectively. This will minimize the amount of time you spend working outdoors, and increase the time you get to enjoy doing the things you love.

As an added bonus, gas heaters are well-known for their durability when compared to electronic heaters, and do not depend on electricity to function. This also means they are resistant to water (an inevitability when it comes to the winter and spring months) and will suit your outdoor needs for years on end. Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, they are highly portable, and can be moved to suit your workplace needs, or even moved to the patio to allow barbequing or relaxation in the snow. Safety features on gas heaters allow you to work knowing that they will automatically shut off if they are knocked over, reach a heat high-limit point or their sensors show a decrease in oxygen availability.

When it comes to working in your garage, do not limit yourself to warm summer months. Use a gas heater for you to keep productive year-round, and get a head start during the spring with your new home improvements or vehicle. This is an ideal Christmas gift for those with motorcyclists and car enthusiasts. Check out our homepage for a list of the very best portable propane heaters on the market today.

Propane Heaters and the Workplace

space-heaters-propane-gas-1-1Anyone who has experienced a cold office or workplace knows that it is hard to devote all of their energy to their work in such an environment. Studies done at Cornell University show that employees subjected to cold office or workplace temperatures (20 degrees Celsius, 68 degrees Fahrenheit) will make 44% more mistakes than coworkers who are operating at a comfortable room temperature (23-25 degrees Celsius, 73-77 degrees Fahrenheit). The truth is that when our bodies are cold, we are not only more prone to mistakes, but spend more time concentrating on our core temperature than on our work. This results in less inspiration, focus and work capability, creating an environment of lower overall workplace functionality and efficiency. It is in the best interests of employers to ensure that their workers are kept warm in the workplace to ensure the highest level of productivity is reached.

Not only does a well-heated workplace improve workplace productivity, it genuinely makes employees happier. The same Cornell study shows that individuals who are provided with a warm workplace environment tend to show greater altruism, corporate loyalty and warmer association with coworkers. In effect, a well-heated environment is more likely to increase worker cohesion, decreasing office tension and increasing overall productivity. This is particularly true for tradespeople operating in outdoor environments, especially during the cold winter months.

Besides providing a warm environment (which is conducive to better productivity), propane heaters on job sites keep them at a regulated temperature, which improves the setting time of concrete, mortar and plaster and helps avoid frozen water pipes, brittle wood and limits moisture and condensation inside homes, commercial and industrial spaces. Propane heaters are ideal for outdoor trades jobs because they are not dependant on electricity and are very portable and flexible depending on a company’s needs. Many products include automatic shut-offs, making them safe to operate even on a chaotic job site, and can weigh as little as 20 pounds (8 kilograms), making them very easy to move to wherever they are needed.

Even in commercial offices, portable propane heaters can be operated without safety concerns to spread warmth to workers who are not close to the central heating system of the building. Instead of heating the building using the central furnace or boiler, which can be prohibitively expensive, small-scale, portable heaters can be used to bring heat to far corners of a building to maintain worker loyalty and improve workplace efficiency. Many of these small portable propane heaters operate at 99.9% efficiency and feature low-oxygen automatic shut-offs, making them safe to operate in enclosed areas. There is simply no better way to provide consistent heat throughout a building or work site than a portable propane heater.

Check out our product list for the best portable propane heaters which has been designed to provide you with workplace heating options across a broad spectrum of heating needs.
