How well does it work in a single car garage during winter in the northeast (NJ)?

It should be adequate. Very effective if in proximity. I use it to take the edge off in a vaulted ceiling 16 x 24 foot shop and am happy with it.

Will this Heater heat a 2&1/2 car garage?

Asked by Annie December 25, 2020
5
Answers

No harm in trying I guess but I would think not based upon the output. Not sure where you live but colder climates would be a definite no even if the garage is somehow heated and/or insulated (such as one built into the house and not just attached). Definitely not if the garage is not heated. This device is very good at what it is intended for. I recommend it highly for adding the extra few degrees needed for comfort to colder rooms or larger areas. I have not used it as a sole source of heat.

The Dr. Infrared heater has kept my family room much warmer than the oil filled heater used in the past. The fan is quiet enough as not to be a bother. Finally a product that lives up to its description in ads.

This is an outstanding heater. I've had several of these box style space heaters, but they don't blow as hot as this one. Even though this one is smaller in size, it out performs the bigger ones. It has a stronger fan to blow the heat out into the room also. I'm single and need to save money on my heating bills. So in the morning when I get up I turn my central heat on for a while to heat the house up and then shut it off and close the other doors, then turn this space heater on. I use it to heat a 13 x 25 front room and a 11 x 12 kitchen. This space heater does it's job and does it well. These rooms stay warm and this heater hasn't batted an eye. It turns itself on high, low or off to maintain whatever temp I have it set on. Highly Recommend!

Disapointed
Like a few others here I am disapointed in how it heats. If you are right in front of it its great. But three feet back, no go. Even running constantly I could not get it to heat a small living room. Its a nice looking unit but worthless at this point
