I have a ready heater but it won't do much in the bigger garage. I have not had any wrench time on a car since the gasser work session. I'm wanting to get started on a garage this spring but around here even when it warms up I still can't do anything until all the mud is dry.

No heat in my garage at all...but it's insulated so it never drops below freezing. I have an A/C unit I want to wire in for it but am not that talented LOL!

Later,

Always used a big salamander heater when I lived in Ohio, froze from the ankles down, and roasted up top. At least I had a garage though, all my stuff is getting ruined from sitting out it the barn here, since the barn has no sides. Even my stuff still in the trailer is starting to rust from the humidity. Oh well at least it's warm enough to work outside.

Kerosene makes me sick...cannot use a 'Sali'.  No  Heat would be nice but really getting that A/C unit in for summertime would be nice.

No heat other than a small propane fired salamander. Takes the chill off, but that's about it.
I was ripping down some 2x4's for a bathroom remodel last night, no heat, couldn't feel my fingers when I was done.

Turn your A/C unit around, and use the heat off the condensor coils to heat the garage. I don't know if it works, but there is an engineer type guy here that uses that application to kiln dry lumber. He has great success. Just passing along some more useless (?) information. Good luck, and turn up the thermostat!
