hello, seems like the number of heating threads are exploding again.
i am decided not to spend another winter in an un-insulated and un-heated workshop.
let me tell you the current situation: my shop sits inside a 52 by105 ft long machine hangar, it takes up a corner of that space, about 16×52 ft. so i only have 2 walls, and the temp in the hangar is always the same as outside, and it’s impossible to heat as the roof is 26ft high. last winter i kept working in it, only the days when the termp in the shop didn’t exceed 14° i had to give up.
the coming 4-5 months the day temps will mostly be under 40°, so white glue won’t work.
so next week i am going to insulate the 16by13ft assembly/powertool corner completely from the rest of the space, by making a wooden frame walls isolated with 3.14960 ” thick insulation, and building double glazed windows.
the thing is that i will still constantly need to go from one part to the other constantly since the stationary tools will be “outside”, i will most certainly go for electric heating, any other form of heating i find too risky knowing that i am not constantly there and go back home to eat at noon etc.
so wich electric method would be most appropriate? i am leaning toward some form of radiant heating, like that infra red or ceramic thing tubes you hang on the wall or ceiling and that don’t heat the air, but the objects under them.
warming the air would seem crazy knowing that i would frequently need to leave the door open.
all i really want is to make it warm enough to use water based glue, 50° is more than enough for me.
