    i have used them all it seams and nuthing heats a garage like a natural gas furnace. anything electric is a waste of time and propane heaters takes the edge off but the fumes arent the greatest thing for you.

    convection propane heater i havent used but i dont think it will heat a 20x20 very well even with insulation.

    good luck! just bite the bullet and plumb a natrual gas line in... and the furnace is only about 600-800 more

    Just say no to porpane or electric heat, by the time you waste your money you would of paid for the furnace. Dont be the weakest link and buck up the 800 bucks and do it properly and at the very least do it for safety.

    I have a Mr.Heater 40,000 btu on propane, It works well in a small area.

    The best bet to spend the extra money and put a natural gas furance in the garage

    Propane tends to throw alot of moisture. Depending on the type of heater. Forced air or radiant is your best bet depending on your set up. I lke radiant but you need ceiling good hieght .

    I have a 23,000 BTU Ruffneck hangin' from the ceiling in the corner by the door on a bit of an angle. The garage measures 15' w x 25' l with a 9' roof. The unit itself is about 8 yrs old and works like a charm. Check them out Ruffneck™ from CCI Thermal Technologies Inc. - Heaters for the Harshest Industrial Environments

    Go with forced air unit heater, problem with tube heaters is that if you don't have high enough ceilings it will cook the paint on your vehicles. I've installed both Lennox and Reznor's and haven't had any problems.
