Unit Heaters are often used in commercial or industrial applications, but homeowners in Regina, SK typically use them in shops and garages to reduce engine wear and tear caused by cold starts, to store paint and chemicals safely without threat of freezing, and to stay warm while working with tools on projects or performing vehicle maintenance. Because garage unit heaters are usually hung from the ceiling in the corner of the space, you don’t need to give up any square footage that could otherwise be devoted to shop equipment and storage.
Unit heaters are a common choice when installing a gas appliance to provide garage heat. While unit heaters do require a gas line and chimney (usually side wall vented), they require no ductwork. They blow air at a downward angle to provide good mixing of temperature during operation. Unlike furnaces, unit heaters are made to work in subzero temperatures. Unit heaters are rated in British thermal units, or BTUs. Garage and shop unit heaters are available in sizes from 30,000 to 125,000 BTUs.
