Ladies and Gentlemen, Fasten Your Seatbelts…

…and prepare for takeoff.

A couple of weeks ago when the weather was topping out in the single digits and we were determined (well I was determined) to get work done in the garage, we went out and purchased a garage heater. I wanted something that would heat the space quickly and efficiently and didn’t want to have to spend an arm and a leg. We came across a heater in a second hand store for $35, which we got home and fueled. It kicked on and heated, but it gave off some extremely strong smells and along with it, some smoke. Frankly, it worried me that it was a fire hazard and it made me nervous enough to just junk it.

We’d then tried out an electrical heater, but it didn’t heat the space we needed… at best, it took the chill off but it didn’t warm up things enough to build, let alone warm enough to be able to paint.

The electrical heater that we found that would heat the space that we working in, was way too expensive, so we opted for a kerosene heater. I was hoping to keep the price down to a hundred dollar mark, but it was quickly becoming clear that to get a quality heater for the space we needed, I would need to spend a little more; we ended up spending just about $200. We finally settled on this one:49bf84eb-6220-4c8d-aff1-8549674847c4_300It easily starts with a flip of a switch and heats up the two car garage in no time. There is a bit of kerosene smell, but quickly dissipates (or you get used to it).

The thing that gets to me is the sight and sound of it. It reminds me of a small jet engine at takeoff. Check this out!

Isn’t it awesome!? I love how the end just glows and the flames shoot out of it! Ha!
