Creating and maintaining a comfortable workspace is one of the keys to wholly enjoying your workshop. While convenience is a factor, it is far more important to keep safety in mind. Here are a few ways to effectively and safely heat your workshop for the coming winter:

  • Improved Insulation – The first step should always be to protect yourself from the cold. Make sure that all weatherstripping is properly installed and check the insulation in the walls for any gaps.
  • Propane Heaters – These heaters are very inexpensive to operate but they do throw off a serious amount of carbon monoxide. You must be sure that the ventilation for these machines is properly installed and maintained.
  • Electric Heat – Quick to heat and very reliable, these appliances are also significantly more costly to operate. They are best used as an adjunct to natural gas heaters.
