I installed this heater a couple weeks ago now. So far it’s been awesome! There is no exposed flame and no fumes. It’s natural gas powered, 22,000BTU and uses no electricity. The pilot light is internal, the furnace works with convection, heating an element which draws cold air from the bottom and you can feel the heat blasting off the top! I’ve been dying for heat out there for 3 winters, long, long, cold winters! Hard to do much work when your garage temp matches the outside temp of -20C.
Anyways, this was very easy to install, comes with a poster to hang on the wall and marks all your holes, all 2 of them, one for the natural gas line and one for the exhaust. Only took me 2 hours with an extra set of hands and a few basic tools to install. Because of the convection it did take a little time to get the heat up, since all my tools were cold, but now we can open the door drive the car in and it’s back to t shirt temp in only a few minutes.
An accessory fan can be added to help move the heat if needed, but so far Id say that’s really not needed.
Oh and my garage is a standard 2 car, roughly 25’ x 25’.
