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.
