The heating elements in these things are too volatile, and you run the risk of starting a fire
Since my house has a 2-car garage and I only own 1 car, it made sense to convert the space into something more useful. I never park in the garage anyway, because I don’t have an automatic garage door opener and it’s just too much work to bring it inside. I decided to convert the space into a workshop, so I could finally continue my woodworking hobby. I got all the tools and equipment set up, but there were still a few things that were lacking. The garage is not connected to the central HVAC system of the house, which means there is no climate control out there. During the winter the temps in the garage can drop below freezing, so to get the most out of my workshop I needed a garage heater. Do you know what the difference is between a garage heater and any other brand of space heater? Neither do I! The only thing I can tell is that garage heaters are more compact, more efficient, and designed to be safe to leave unattended. Think about it, with all the chemicals, pesticides, and flammable stuff kept in the normal garage, you can’t just use a regular space heater. The heating elements in these things are too volatile, and you run the risk of starting a fire. A garage heater is designed specifically for this kind of industrial environment, including an automatic kill switch to prevent the temps from ever getting too high. A garage heater is superior, which also means it costs a lot more than a normal space heater.
