I live in Northern Upper Michigan (20 miles south of Lake Superior). Shop is 24×28. It is very well insulated and sealed up. I have a Sterling (vented) ceiling mounted system, 45,000 btu. I keep the shop at 55/night & 60/day, but I can heat as warm as I want it. My house is just under 3000 s.f. I average 1400 gal/yr of propane. I run off the same tank as my house, so I don’t know exactly how much propane I use in the shop. I would guess it is about 250 to 300 gal/yr.
