Before you comment on this, we know winter’s over. That’s why it’s a great time to shop for a heater for next year — you’re more likely to find sales, and you won’t have to freeze your ass off installing it! We thought maybe something like Dayton’s G73 might do the trick. Then again, we’re from Texas where people see “cold” as relief from our surface-of-Mercury summers, so maybe you northerners can clue us in.
The G73 electric shop and garage heater features four heat settings and a built-in thermostat. Dayton says it’ll heat areas up to 500 square feet — about the size of a three-car garage — and they recommend it for garages, workshops, and basements. With safety in mind, Dayton also equipped it with a thermal cutout that automatically shuts off the unit if it starts to overheat.
Its street price of $300 seems steep to us Texans, but rolling into the shop in February in a T-shirt instead of a snow suit does sound uber-cool. What do you think?
