Benefits of Heating Your Garage

Keeps Vehicles Warmer

It’s no secret that Canadian winters are harsh and can wreak havoc on your vehicle, but keeping your car in the garage can help combat this. Keeping your car in a heated garage offers even more benefits.

  • The car will warm up faster.
  • Coolant in the vehicle will be warmer, even with really low temperatures outside.
  • The oil will be less viscous.
  • Starting the car will be easier and doors or locks won’t freeze and get stuck.
  • Ice or snow won’t have to be removed from windows.
  • Your car will be protected from engine wear, which improves fuel economy and increases vehicle longevity.

Keeps Rooms Above the Garage Warm

Bonus rooms and bedrooms above garages are becoming more and more common. The problem is that these rooms are often cold – even with their own heat source and proper insulation. A heater in the garage can go a long way in making these rooms warmer and, thus, safer during the coldest nights. Plus, a heater can provide warmth and comfort to pets or plants that are kept in a bonus room or in the garage itself.

Keeps You Warm While You Work

An unheated garage can be an uncomfortable place to have a workshop. When it’s cold outside, you’ll spend as much time trying to stay warm as you do working on your projects. Besides that, having to bundle up can seriously impede your ability to work as productively as possible.

Of course, this can all be remedied by simply heating your garage. Most heating options don’t even require a large initial investment or high monthly costs. No matter what, if you work in your garage, a garage heater will be a worthy investment, especially if it’s a Lennox heater!

Lennox heaters keep your garage warm no matter the temperature outside, provide uniform heat distribution, can heat a 1 to 4+ car garage, have up to 80% thermal efficiency (are energy-efficient), and use natural or propane gas. Plus, installation is quick and easy and pros like us, at Gibbon Heating and Air conditioning, can install your heater safely, efficiently and quickly.
