7 Benefits of Propane Infrared Garage Heaters

April 11, 2022 –

Spring is here, and you might be starting to think about the projects you want to work on in your garage. But how will you keep your space comfortable enough to let you work for hours at a time, even into the cold evening hours?

A propane-powered infrared garage heater could be the answer.

Infrared heaters radiate waves of energy that turn into warmth only when they contact people and surfaces. These waves absorb and radiate heat outward to increase the temperature of their surroundings. By operating this way, propane-powered infrared heaters enjoy several advantages over conventional heaters:

Energy Efficiency: Infrared propane heaters use significantly less energy than conventional heaters–about 50 percent less than electric models. Its reflectors transfer nearly 100 percent of the heat your propane infrared heater creates.

Safety: All heating elements of the heater are covered by a protective metal sheath. And since the core temperature of infrared heaters never gets as high as an electric heater’s, propane infrared heaters are very safe. This means you can touch the surface of an infrared garage heater without being burned.

Minimal maintenance: Since infrared heaters don’t have moving parts, maintenance is minimal. There are no motors to wear out or air filters to replace.

Instant heat: Conventional heaters heat people and objects directly rather than heating air, which wastes energy and takes a long time. Propane infrared heat penetrates and warms you and the room immediately, with no need to wait for the heat to build up.

Quiet and clean operation: Since infrared heaters operate without moving parts or fan blades, they don’t make noise or move dust around your space.

Comfort: Heat from an infrared heater’s reflector can be felt several yards in front of the heater. Drafts or wind don’t affect their heating power! This makes them perfect for small spaces like residential garages.

Eco-friendly: Infrared heaters operate without any carbon combustion, no toxic by-products of combustions, no open flame, and no fuel lines to leak.

    It’s great to know that propane heaters use 50% less energy than electric models, making it an energy-efficient choice. My dad plans to have a cabin home constructed in our hometown next year. If there’s a nearby propane service in the area, I’ll suggest he uses propane heating for the new house. Thanks!

    I find it fascinating that propane is an efficient yet instantaneous power source for your gas heater. My friend wants to try helping his uncle in adjusting to retirement living. I think finding a propane company can help them achieve this someday.

    It’s nice that you pointed out how compared to conventional heaters, infrared propane heaters use significantly less energy. Our current heating unit is not efficient anymore, so we are planning to replace it with a new one that uses propane. But before we can do that, we need to ask for some help from a propane company.

    Thanks for also talking about how eco-friendly propane gas could be. I’d like to find a good propane gas delivery service soon because I’m thinking about making my home easier to keep warm. Propane could also be quite affordable so that’s another good boon.
