Topic tags/keywords: question

Will be building a new garage, shop in the spring looking at different types of heating. was looking at propane radiant heat tube, or forced air, wondering if any one has thoughts on this. the space will be 1800 sq ft with 10ft ceilings. Propane will be the fuel. Will also have a wood stove. thanks in advance.

look at my post http://lumberjocks.com/reviews/product/592 I have a radiant tube heater and love it. It is efficient and warm with no open flames to catch sawdust on fire. It also uses outside air for combustion.

I forgot to mention.. INSULATE FIRST! otherwise prepare to pay out the nose to heat with any solution you find.

Will be insulating for sure as we have minus twenty celcius for five months at a time:-)
