Save on space heaters right here at PlumbersStock. When you need heating solutions for a relatively small space, shop heaters (another common name for them) are a great option for garages, greenhouses, and workshops that need heat during the cold winter.
We offer ADP unit heaters and Broan with a variety of options for output to match the size of the space you need heated. In order to find an adequate heater, you need to consider your heat load calculation, which will tell you how many BTUs you need. A professional HVAC tech is the best way to go, but there are ways to conduct rough estimations of your heat load.
All of the unit heaters we sell here at PlumbersStock are fueled by gas, specifically natural gas. The advantages of natural gas are that it burns relatively cleanly and it is affordable in comparison to other energy sources as well. You may have a natural gas hookup built into the infrastructure of your shop, or you may need to run it off a tank, but the versatility is what ensures you have options. If you are tight on a budget and need a minimum amount of heat to be “warm enough”, consider a smaller unit, which serves as a de facto energy efficient space heater.
If you have any trouble locating the best unit heater for your shop, then please contact a representative at PlumbersStock, and we can help point you in the right direction. Because we do our own warehousing, you can save on shipping and handling on big items like these natural gas unit heaters. Prices range with great variance so you will want to strategize and plan to get the unit most appropriate for matching your needs. Strike a balance between getting the maximum output you need without spending too much on unneeded heating potential.
