Garages are one of the best parts of a house—they’re where we store our summertime hobbies, our home renovation tools, and are sometimes simply a space to escape to. However, when the temperature freezes and the snow begins to fall, our garages may become unusable living spaces for months on end.
Here are just a few of the top reasons you should invest in a heater for your garage.
Your Vehicle is Ready to Go
There’s nothing worse than leaving your home to find a vehicle with icy windows, a thick layer of snow that needs to be brushed off, and an engine that just won’t turn over.
By heating your garage, you won’t have to worry about these time-consuming tasks and can climb into a vehicle that’s already warm and ready to take on the winter roads.
Provides a Winter Workspace
If you like to stay busy, being cooped up inside your home when the temperature drops can be very frustrating, especially if your garage is where you normally work on projects and hobbies.
Installing a heater in your garage can provide you with a year-round workshop that can be used for woodworking, exercising, or tinkering with electronics and vehicles.
Heats the Rooms Above
Nobody likes it when they see a bill in the mail—especially during the winter when heating bills are higher.
By installing a heater in your garage, any heat generated will radiate into the rooms above and around it, meaning less energy spent on heating the home and a lower energy bill next month.
Improves Vehicle Performance
We’ve already talked about how storing your vehicle in a heated garage can remove the hassle of ice and snow clearing, but did you know it can actually increase your vehicle’s lifetime and performance?
Vehicles left in the cold can experience engine wear and tear that reduces fuel economy and any oil in the engine can become more viscous and burn less efficiently. It’s no surprise then that keeping your car in a heated garage can keep it on the road longer.
