How to Heat Your Garage During Winter

Posted on November 9th, 2022

Even during the frigid winter months in Chicago, you still need to spend time in your garage. Whether to care for your vehicle, home improvement projects or to put together that bicycle some fat man in a red suit left for your kid, you’ll be in your garage often.

Instead of risking frostbite, consider these helpful tips to help keep you warm in your garage.

Insulate Your Garage Door

Before spending the money on a heating system, make sure your garage is properly insulated. By insulating the door, walls, and ceiling, you will ensure warm air from your electric heaters and other heat sources isn’t slipping through the cracks.

Placing clear plastic shrink film on windows will protect against the cold air.

Space Heaters

From propane heaters to electric space heaters, infrared heaters to convection heaters, there are plenty of options to help keep your space warm. It’s important to know the amount of space needed to heat, so measure your garage square footage before purchasing a heater.

Depending on the type and size of the unit and how cold your garage gets, some heaters can take longer to heat your garage. Make sure you factor in how long you are willing to wait for your garage to heat up.

Mounted Electric Heater

A wall-mounted electric heater is among the best ways to heat your garage during the cold winter months of Chicago. Easy to install and efficient, you’ll find that you want to spend time outside this winter.

Ductless Heating and Cooling

Ductless systems are energy-efficient systems that heat or cool rooms with a single unit. They are easy to install, save money on utility bills, and efficiently heat or cool your garage quickly.

Heated Garage Floors

You’ve heard of heated bathroom floors. Now, we’re moving the heat to the garage. If you’re consistently working in your garage and finding yourself on the floor often, in-floor heating can radiate heat to your toes, back, and more. It’ll keep your tools warm while they wait to get used again.
