Garage heaters are an essential part of your household, especially if you live in colder regions like Edmonton. This is because they save time on cold mornings when your neighbors are heating up their vehicles for the day’s activities. The assumption that garage heaters are bad for your car is incorrect as there are proven mechanical advantages to parking your car in a heated garage overnight. Because oil remains warmer and less viscous, it will do a better job lubricating the engine of your car. This will help to prevent long-term damage to the engine of your car.

Garage Heater Placement Considerations
To ensure that your garage heater is effective, you need to find the best spot for it in your garage. This space will depend on the type of garage heater that you decide on getting, the size of your garage, and use of the garage i.e to heat up your car in the winter or as a work space.
It is also important to consider whether you want a blower of some sort on your shop heater or if you prefer for it to radiate heat in the area around it. If you are trying to heat a large area, then having a shop heater with an equipped blower could be beneficial. If you want to focus the heat on keeping just yourself comfortable and do not care about heating the whole garage space, a radiation-style heater may be better suited to your needs.

Factors to consider when getting a garage heater
There are many factors to consider when picking out the right garage heater, they include:
- Heater type: Garage heaters come in two major types: gas and electric heaters. Gas heaters have to be connected to a gas line or a portable gas tank to function while electric heaters operate by electric currents running through metal coils. While electric heaters can be more efficient because they radiate all of the heat that’s produced, gas burners are more powerful because they emit more heat due to their heavier combustion capabilities.
- Range: This is the measure of space your heater can warm up. You want the heater range to be appropriate for the size of your space and the reason for installation so that your garage can be warmed as efficiently as possible.
- Safety: The safety of your heater should be ensured. Buy a heater with discharge grills and a fireproof intake. Be sure to keep heaters away from flammable objects in the garage, and clean them often. Additionally, check for an automatic shut-off, in case you forget to turn the system off.
