    UPDATE*******Let me tell you, this has been the best $300 or so that I have ever spent in my life. Garage has been a beautiful 60° or so all winter. And it's been one the the coldest winters we've had in many years. Many nights -10° or more. Money WELL SPENT :cool:

    i only want to keep the heat @ around 50-55 in the garage , but my bedroom is right next to the garage, so thatll help keep the bedroom warmer in the winter also

    I just had a Reznor heater installed. It runs on natural gas and has a program able thermostat.
    It is 60K BTU and very efficient, but fairly pricy @ $1,800.00, plus installation. I do like the fact that it is power vented to the outside, so that there is no concern with fumes and moisture in my garage.
    I'll leave it @ 40f most often and crank it up when I want to work on my cars.

    i dont do alot w/ my car(parked for the winter) or to it in the garage due to no heat, but like you i want the option to be able to , if i can keep it @ 50-55 thatll offset the heating costs to the rest of the house also , so thats a plus and if need be i can work on the car in the winter and not have to do it in early spring and take away precious east coast driving season time
