It looks like the last thread about garage heat was some time ago.

Reporting on my recent purchase:

did not have a convenient way to get gas to my heater location in my garage so I went with a Fahrenheat FUH54 from Amazon. Super easy installation and a 30 amp breaker was easy to connect it to. At a very low setting, it has kept my oversized 3-car (12’ ceiling) comfortable. It has been in the single digits to about 25 degrees F the past two weeks and I’ve kept my garage near 60 on setting 3 of a possible 10. If I turn it up a few clicks I can raise the temp 25 degrees in an hour.

Super impressive heater. I am not keeping it up unless I want to garage heated to work in, or to take off the extreme chill only. Maybe $10-$15 the past two months at the most.

Anyone have any issues with these electric heaters collecting too much dust? The fan seems to move plenty of air to keep it cleaned out.

I am going to follow this as its a topic of interest, but I admit it’s not one to which I have a lot to input. I heat my shop maybe 30-40 days a year with two 1500 watt portable electric heaters. I can keep it at 68 – 72 with no problem, but then – I don’t live in a cold climate. Still, there could be a better way, and I’d like to learn more about the Fahrenheit FUH54. Thanks for posting.
