We don’t experience the blood-freezing temperatures here in the South that they do further north, but it does get cold enough that we start looking for heating options in the shop during the winter. Talk of halogen heaters starts making the rounds as soon as the first frost hits — but are they effective in the shop?
You can bag a cheap electric halogen heater for less than a C-note, and they come in a dizzying array of sizes and shapes. The concept of no-flame heating seems appropriate for the shop, but how well do these things work? How much area do they cover? Will the person standing five feet from the unit be sweating while the guy on the other side of the garage is experiencing a modern Ice Age?
In short, are these good units to place in the shop, or is this technology only suited for the small heaters you find under old people’s desks? Let us know in comments.
