Garage heater

I wanted a garage heater for my 70m2 garage.
After looking around I went for an Eberspacher D7L bus heater.
Its a heater which needs 24v en dieselfuel and can deliver 8Kw.
I bought one on a german website.
After tweeking around on that thing it finally works.

I'm assuming that's the heat vent. Where does it exhaust? How will you mount it to your garage?

There is an exhaust pipe on the bottom of the heater. So no exhaust gases are blowing into the place. It has a seperate intake and exhaust circuit for the burning procedure.
You can hang it with chains on the ceiling or making a frame , so it is portable together with a power supply and fuelcanister.
Another project tjat jas to be finished before next winter.

I would blow myself up with that contraption! I'll stick to my little 7000 watt electric unit.

It takes a while to get the garage warm but maintains is very well. Average cost for a winter month (below 32 F) running 24/7 to keep the garage 55 F and then the occasional ramp up to 68-70 while working out there has been about $70-80.

68-70! Your not working hard enough. I'd be sweating at that temp.

I have a ceiling mount natural gas heater. My garage is about 1200 sqft.

I keep it at 40 all winter and crank it up to about 50-55 when I'm working out there. It gets way too hot above that.

My energy bill goes up about $20-30 a month since I installed it.

I agree, 68-70 is a bit warm. I finally turned on my heated floors this year for the first time. Started with a set room temp of 70, way too warm to work on anything, but the good news is the sockets and wrenches were no longer freezing to the touch. I have since turned down the thermostat to a room temp of 64 degrees. Perfect temp, no jacket or sweatshirt needed and the concrete floors are nice and toasty.


As for Bruno's contraption, I would be afraid on CO poisoning unless the exhaust is routed out of the building.

It will. Even the air that goes to the burner is taken from outside the building.
My garage is 650 sq/ft or 70m2.
It cost about $1.5 for a hour at full heating capacity.

No idea how much it will take to hold the temp at 60°F when its freezing outside.

Just to clarify, that 68-70 degree value is just what the display on the wall mounted door opener shows. The majority of my work done right now has me laying or sitting on the concrete floor close to an overhead door on the other side of the garage. I assure you I am not sweating out there.

My floor is like 80F.
