No one has mentioned pellet stoves. I live on an island in the
Seattle area. No natural gas, Propane is very expensive here because
of the extra cost of bringing it on the ferry. I chose a pellet
stove. Works wonderful and heats the whole shop (1200 sq ft with high
ceislings) in 30 min or so. I do have a ceiling fan which helps a
lot. The wood pellets burn very hot and a big advantage of a pellet
stove is that one does not need a chimney. Just cut a hole in the
wall. Of course it has to be insulated. Works great!
May be a good choice. Be aware, however, with solid fuel heaters there may
be some code considerations. They are not allowed in attached garages. Wood
embers and coals can be hot and glowing for a day or so after the fire was
"out" and fumes can ignite. Watch those solvents.
