Looking for opinions on what is a good heater for my 22x22 garage. Just need it to thaw off cars and dry out the floor, keep things from freezing.

F4rcr you mind me asking how much it added to your electric bill?

my garage is 28 by 32 I keep it at 45 and if I need to work in there I will turn it up to 60. my garage has 2 by 6 walls with r 19 insulation and I think it is about r 30 in the ceiling. this is the first year I have the garage but I would guess I'm averaging about 20 dollars more a month. I had it at 60 for 4 days during the extreme cold snap as well

I have used house furnaces for the last 25 years. I like them since they pull cold air off the floor. I also run a ceiling fan 24 x 7 in the garage.

I keep the thermostat set at 40 - 45 in the winter. You need a special thermostat to do that. I think it is called a warehouse thermostat.

Thing to be aware of is that if you have a fridge in your garage... they do not work under 50 degrees. I lost alot of venison that way.

I have been able to find nice used furnaces for $200 on CL or other avenues.

I have a garage fridge and it works just fine until the garage gets well below freezing then it gets too cold in the fridge. Do you mean the freezer doesn't work below 50? It should.
