    As they keep reminding us on Game of Thrones "winter is coming"!

    With this in mind, can anyone recommend a good garage heater?

    My garage is chilly in the summer months, let alone now!

    Looking to spend sub £100, preferably electric powered

    There are lots out there, but keen to hear what you all use.

    Cheers

    How big is ur garage? A 2kw electric isn’t going to touch a larger garage so ur looking at propane for something larger.
    If u only need a warm area to work in something like this....https://www.primrose.co.uk/18kw-wal...ater-with-power-settings-firefly-p-86132.html
    will directly heat you, but not the rest of the garage.
    If u go for a propane blower they’re so powerful even a small one will cook the garage, but be prepared to get thro the gas!

    Just be careful about safety. I have petrol, thinners and gas in my garage so anything with a flame would be a worry near any of that.

    The problem with gas type heaters is that they give off a lot of moisture which seems to just speed up corrosion on metal surfaces

    2 car garage...not looking to make it tropical, just comfortable when the weather gets chilly.

    Was looking at something like this though the reviews are fairly sparse, if positive.

    Use a Clarke diesel/paraffin blower but I use commercial heating oil with it at 69p a litre quite economic to run and less fumes than diesel from supermarkets , heats up a 35 x 25 x 10 tin garage well, just don't put flamables directly in front .
