Shop heating survey


Recommended Posts

I know similar topics have landed on this forum in the past, but I haven't quite found the answer to a question. I have a 30x40x20 tall post structure shop with the ceiling being the only thing insulated and I want to install a natural gas ceiling heater.

If you've gone down this similar path can you tell me what btu output heater you went with or would recommend? I live in the NW and want to keep the shop temp at 60 degrees. Any other recommendations I would love to hear.

I second Mark's comments above also the height of the structure will make heating it especially from anything on the sealing a tall order. Anyway to cut the space you want to heat? Either in height or dimensions? If cost is not an issue I would insulate the entire structure and look at options that would lower the heat source.
