Portable garage heater...
Looking for a heater for my avg sized 2 car garage with about a $100 budget. what's everyone using and how's it heat the garage. It's WAY to cool out so i can't work on the ski and it's driving me nuts.

You can get a reddy heater for your propane tank. Radiant heat is ok, you can also use a forced heater. Caution! you MUST vent your garage (window/door cracked open) when using propane..... Also, be aware of chemical fumes, open flames, gas water heaters etc....
Personally, i installed a 220V ceiling mount, 55,000 btu forced air heater. Some use natural gas heaters but i just wired 6/2 wire to my sub panal, 50amp breaker. My electric bill is surprising pretty low since my garage is 100% insulated. Wall mount thermostat.This heater heats up my 3 car (high ceiling) garage very fast.

I use this one, Installed a few months ago. http://www.heater-home.com/product/G73.aspx
I have a 2 car garage and it was 28° the other night. I turned it on and the temp inside was 62°.

didnt really want to spend that much but maybe its worth it.I found this heater and was thinking about getting 2 of them. My Garage is 100% insulated, Alway keep beer water ect ect in there during the winter and it never freezes so i dont think it would take much to heat it.

Electrical stuff from discount outlets like Princess Auto (and Harbor Freight) can be suspect (even when is shows the UL, CSA or other electrical safety logos), so be sure to keep it well away from wood and flammable materials, especially above the units.

As with ANY heater like this Ill always be in the garage while it's on. there ALL a fire risk....
