It doesn't get that cold here in Santa Barbara, but the nights can get chilly and that's when I like to work in my shop.

I've got a 750sqft shop that I and my friends work on our bikes, pretend to build stuff, etc.

My last heater that just gave out on me was a construction site heater. It worked ok but now I'm looking for an energy efficient, high tech space heater than will do the job.

Any suggestions?

I've got somewhere around 550s/ft of garage with an 8ft ceiling- I use a small ceramic disc heater with fan it will take the chill off when 35-45degrees out, in about an hour. In two hours I'm usually shedding the jacket.

The heater is 1500w; cost next to nothing.

I agree about taking the chill away, but as to how warmth measure?..it will depend on how well the garage or area involved, is insulated and drafts from outside are sealed.

Personally I don't mind lower temps ( actually have my thermostat @ 67 degrees during winter months) ..however, if humid, rainy or snowy..a ceramic heater will indeed to the TRICK!!
