Garage Heater: The Next Best Thing To AC

Many people don’t pay much attention to their garage in the winter. It’s a place to keep the car free of snow and ice and it’s also the catchall for any item that doesn’t have a place inside the house. However, the garage can provide valuable residential space! It can be used as a workshop, hobby space, workout area, or just hang out space. Your garage can also be used to ensure that your car will not only be protected from the snow but also the freezing cold temperatures. However, if you live in Alberta the garage can get pretty cold in the winter – unless, of course, you have a garage heater.

By increasing the garage temperature, you now have usable space for household projects or a hobby. Even if you don’t want to use the garage as extra workspace, installing a garage heater can help your car get through the winter. Not only is nice to get into a warm car, but it’s also easier to start a vehicle when the temperature is above freezing. Also there’s no need to have to use an engine block heater if your car is toasty warm in the garage. That, in turn, helps the engine in your car to run more smoothly in the cold weather.

I find garage heaters go along the same lines as air conditioners. It is one of those things homeowners don’t think much of until they experience it at someone else’s place, and then they can’t imagine living without it!

Choosing an HVAC contractor and Checking References

How should you begin the process of selecting a contractor?

For starters, ask your friends and associates for recommendations. Word of mouth is one of the most important forms of advertising for small businesses, we have been very thankful to build our business primarily through word of mouth referrals. Contractors are likely to work harder for you if they know that you have a connection to an existing network with whom they are associated.

Once you’ve begun interviewing contractors, we would suggest that you request and check multiple references. Here are some useful questions to ask references:

1) Can they confirm that they hired the contractor in question?

2) Were they happy with the contractor’s work?

3) Did the contractor finish the project on time and on budget?

4) Would they have any hesitation recommending this contractor to someone else?

Beware of references who are unwilling to discuss a contractor, or who give a lukewarm reference. People are understandably reluctant to give a blatantly bad reference about someone that they may work with again in the future.
