Garage Heaters & Service in Elmhurst, IL
Garages are often part of a home, but are used almost entirely for storage. They often don’t have any amenities (aside from electricity) tend not to have climate control, and most certainly aren’t well insulated. This is acceptable during the summer, but during the winter it can become quite a problem. The freezing cold can actually damage your car and other materials kept in your garage.
If you like to use your garage as a sort of workshop, as many people do, you likely won’t be very comfortable when the place is just slightly warmer than it is outside. If you want your garage to be a bit more hospitable during the winter, you should consider installing a garage heater. Fiebrandt Bros Heating & Cooling, Inc. offers a full range of garage heater services throughout Elmhurst, IL. Call today for an appointment.
Why You Might Want a Garage Heater for Your Elmhurst Home
As mentioned above, most garages are little more than large storage sheds attached to your home. If they’re insulated at all, it’s not nearly as good as the insulation you’ll find in the walls of the main home. Heat moves much more freely between the average garage and the outside environment, which makes it hot in the summer and cold in the winter.
A garage heater is a way to offer a level of climate control for your Elmhurst area garage that you wouldn’t normally have. It’s probably not going to be as cozy as your living room, but it will be warm enough for you to be out in the garage without feeling like you’re in an ice box. It will also keep the various things you store in your garage safe from the biting cold.
How Garage Heaters Work
A garage heater is essentially a space heater, designed to provide heat to a relatively small area. There are some models that use natural gas to produce heat, but most of them use heating coils. An electrical current is run through the coil, which throws off heat to be circulated into the room. While simple in construction, a single moderately sized garage heater is often quite capable of keeping the entire garage comfortable. As to which kind of garage heater is best for you, you’ll have to talk to a professional about that.
