During the summer months your garage gets plenty of use, but what about during the winter? Chances are good that your garage is nothing but a place to park your car before you run into your home. What if you could change that and make your garage space usable all year long?
Heating your garage can provide you with the space you’ve always wanted, but if you’re still on the fence, here are five reasons your family will love a heated garage.
Advanced storage options. Ever feel like your house is too cluttered and you can’t store certain things in the cold garage? Heating the garage gives you usable storage space all year long, perfect for liquids or treasured items that no longer need to be protected from winter chills.
Follow a hobby. If you or someone in your family enjoys working on cars, you probably postpone the hobby for the winter. Cold tools and cold hands lead to little productivity, after all. But with a heated garage, you can work on your project year-round, making you more productive and ensuring your restoration project is ready to go by next spring.
The bonus space you’ve always wanted. Months indoors is enough to give anyone cabin fever, so wouldn’t it be nice if the family had a little more room to spread out? By heating your garage, you provide the opportunity to use part of the area as a bonus space for playing games, listening to music, quietly reading or utilizing the counter top for projects.
Cut the race. A heated garage means you no longer need to sprint out to the car from your home as quickly as possible. It also means you won’t have to waste fuel heating your car before you travel somewhere.
Protect investments. Your car isn’t the only valuable item in your garage, and a heated garage ensures items or tools holding water or fuel gels are protected from the freezing and thawing process.
