How To Heat A Garage Workshop | Shop Heater Ideas

In this video I share with you how I heat my garage workshop. I will also give you ideas on how you can heat your shop in multiple ways. When it is cold in the workshop, I use a combination of electric heaters for and a propane heater. I only use the propane heater in the garage long enough to knock the chill out of the air. After that I use electric heaters in the woodworking shop to maintain the temperature. I have also insulated my garage door to help with the cold. This works well in my area where the climate is more mild and not as cold as more northern climates. There are lots of ideas on how to heat a garage. Electric, kerosene, and gas are some options for heating your workshop. Amazon and other affiliate links are used in this description and they help support this channel.
