i have an old oil heater i got free, with (now) a new gun type burner.
i run it to keep the worst of the chill off and crank it up when i decide to work there. it is reasonably cheap to use and keeps my machinery clean during winter. in summer i have a 5k btu window type A/C that i run nearly all summer. the garage is quite comfortable, too. 24X24 insulated.

I like some of the oil burning heaters & I hope to get one of those. I think it's about $2500 for a 150,000 BTU unit (I could probably use a smaller one, just started looking) that burns used motor oil. I figure that's the cheapest way to heat the garage, just use the oil from one of my cars to keep it going......
What's your current kW/hr on the old electric heater? Just trying to see what's inefficient for these. Thanks!
