Do You Need a Garage Heater?

Low Refrigerant

Garage heaters sound like a luxury, and depending on the circumstances you might not need one. But winters are very cold here in Avon, OH, and many homes have detached garages or similar set-ups with no real heating system. A separate garage heater may be an excellent solution, sized to your space and able to provide heating on a moment’s notice. Whether you need one or not depends on the circumstances, but when making your decision, you should consider the following factors. They can help you determine if such a system is right for you.

Car Trouble

Cars placed in your garage can suffer from drained batteries and other types of trouble when temperatures get too low. A garage heater can help the space stay warm enough to stave off those problems, and prevent those awkward mornings when your car won’t start when you need to get to work.

Appliances

A number of garages house appliances for your home: power tools, generators, and the like. Just as the cold can harm your cars, so too can it damage these appliances. this is especially concerning for things like the hot water heater, which your home needs in order to function, or a generator which can provide power when a winter storm knocks it out.

Work Space

Sometimes, a garage is just a storage space and you don’t visit it very often. Other times, however, it may be a place where you spend a lot of time: engaging in various hobbies or just working on your car. You have a right to be comfortable when you spend your leisure time in the garage, and a good heating system may be the perfect way to achieve that.
