Gas Heater in garage was the first thing I did when I moved in. Don't regret it AT ALL. 55* all winter.


Gonna add an electric one to the new shed whenever I get around to running wiring out there.

I've had my Profusion heater installed for about 6 years ago. I did electric due to install cost issues and venting for gas.

My garage is 26'x28' with 10' ceilings. It is completely insulated, 2" insulated door and two interior walls. In the coldest of months the electric bill is 35-40 more with it running full time at 65 degrees. That has been the worst case. Most of the time I keep it around 60 and the bills are 25-30 more per month.

It makes working on the cars so much better in winter.

Which Profusion do you have and do you run a separate T Stat for it? I'm going to get rid of my Propane and go electric once we run new service out to my garage in the next month.

I just added the ventless 30,000 to my little shack, it's awesome and zero smells.
Last winter I was going broke with the electric baseboard heat, and I was freezing.
This thing is making me sweat at setting 2 at night.
Can't even imagine ever needing one of the higher settings??

I have the Profusion EH-4604. It has three BTU settings and a built in fan.

I did not wire in a thermostat. The unit has a temp dial which I learned where to keep it and maintain the temp in the garage.

It was the best $100 investment I made in the garage. Now if I could get a lift....

I will be doing that in the next 2 weeks. Just waiting on the Wifeys cousin to come over and show me where he wants me to trench. New service from the house to garage then re-wire the whole garage

I personally think that is the worst part. Unless you rent a trencher but for most people that isn't worth it.

The trench is the easy part. Garage to the house isn't far

Would I burn my garage down using one of those 110 to 220v inverotors to power a 220v heater

Just run a 220, you will need it any way for the compressor, welder, etc etc.

Finally got around to finishing my garage heater install just in time for spring!! Also ran a 100amp sub panel to garage. Iíll be able to run welder on 220 now and my quick jack lift will not keep popping breaker.
