In Response To: cold garage (LindaH/Gso,NC)

Heating a garage is not very difficult. As long as you do not want to bring the temp in the garage to regular house temp (70 ish) a small heater should do the job. I would look in a catalog like Grainger or just talk to your local HVAC (heating ventilation air conditioning) service. An electrician or qualified handyman should also be able to do the job. A small electric heater can easily raise the temperature in your garage to 50 or 60 degrees. I would avoid simple plug in baseboard units in the event of gas fumes, water, or anything getting placed to close. If it were my garage I would want something mounted up in a corner. I know it seems wrong to put heat up high but I would think it is safer. Also, you mentioned you have a dryer in the garage. There is a piece that goes in the dryer vent which releases some of the heat back into the room. It is commonly available at most home centers.

Good Luck
