Shop Heaters

Take the chill off . . . 

Is your garage also your home's work and recreation area? If so, let natural gas help extend the use of this area when the weather gets cold. A natural gas-fired garage heater offers the do-it-yourselfer and home hobbyist clean, quiet and odor-free operation with the convenience expected from modern gas heating. Natural gas infrared tube heaters are easy to install and will warm your garage, workshop, greenhouse or patio.

  • Heat where it's needed: Since the infrared rays are absorbed by the floor, infrared heating provides warmer floor-level temperatures.

  • Quiet: infrared heating equipment does not require fans or blowers.

  • Energy-efficient: Combustion efficiency stands around eighty (80) percent. Hot surface ignition or direct spark ignition systems have replaced the standing pilot light.

  • Clean: Without drafts or blowing air, these units will not spread dirt or dust and will not interfere with daily building operations.

  • Reliable: Even though burners seldom fail, if one or more do, the rest will continue to heat the building. Therefore building owners need not worry about lost time due to a complete breakdown of the system.

What is Radiant Heat?

In the same way the sun warms the earth, infrared tube heaters are designed to warm your garage or workspace. Quiet and energy efficient, this type of heating is ideal for garages, shops and any other locations where heat is needed in a specific area. Not only are they cost-efficient - but they're also energy-efficient, running at 80%, and over, in combustion efficiency tests.

Infrared tube heating equipment is designed to provide quiet, energy-efficient, comfort-level temperatures through application of radiant heat transfer. Radiant heat transfer means that heated infrared rays are radiated until they are absorbed by objects, such as floors, equipment, or people. Infrared heat rays do not warm the air. The air immediately surrounding the "heated" objects is warmed because of the increase in temperature of those objects. This makes infrared heating ideal for spot heating applications such as garages, parking ramps, and any other indoor location where heat is needed in only a specific area.
