I appreciate everyone's comments, and suggestions. I have medical
conditionss that result in major problems if I get to cold or to hot.
I have more than enough power (electric) to the house to run any
thing. My brother who was an electriction for major comercial
companies told me my house had more electrical service than many
companues he worked on. The problem I have is that we have added so
many circuits that the three large panels don't have room for another
circuit breaker. So after looking at all the articles here, I am
purchasing a 170,000 propane heater and a #100 propane tank. Cost will
be about $500.00 when I get done, but well with in considerations,
since I don't think any thing of spending over #1,000.00 on a gun or
new shop tool. Besides, I am in my late 70's & I don't want to leave
any money for my 7 children to fight over. So I will spend it on my
shop and tools which I love.
Very considerate of you. I plan to do the same. We are sitting here
trying to decide which restaurant to go to for either a late lunch or
early dinner. Just one of those things we like to do at least once a
week. Biggest deicision will be white or red wine.
Jackie Chan's Son Will Get None Of His $130 Million Fortune
Jackie stated that he was originally intending to donate half of his
wealth to charity and leaving his family the other half but recently
changed his will to leave 100% for charitable causes throughout the
world. The elder Chan explained: "If he is capable, he can make his own
money. If he is not, then he will just be wasting my money."
If you haven't already committed, and since $$ itself really doesn't
seem to be the issue, I'd suggest rethinking the electrical and consider
adding a subpanel feed in place of one location now.
I say this for two reasons...
a) The fumes from the propane heaters unless it is externally vented,
b) That you mention you have "issues" with either extreme, not just
cold. The heat pump solution would solve both and I can imagine the
issue is only going to get more difficult to deal with with time, not
Just $0.02, imo, ymmv, etc., etc., etc., ..., of course.
And as for the $$, if they're fighting types, they'll just fight over
the tools instead... :)
MJ, I put an electric wall heater in the wall of my own car-and-a-half
garage shop, and it's done a great job for me up here in Port Townsend,
Washington. It's a Pic-A-Watt 240V/4500W wall-mount heater, and it cost me
about $260 three or four years ago. Here's a link to King's fan-driver
heater page: http://www.king-electric.com/products/fan-heater.html . The LPW
model is the one I bought.
That was my reaction as well.
I had a full panel in the house and needed to add a sub-panel in the
garage. The electrician took out some full height breakers and put half
height ones in their place. Gave the needed space.

Like the added benefit of the cool cycle, since obviously enjoys the
shop there's bound to be other uses for the additional capacity down the
road if it's there...
We normally go out to lunch or diner at least twice a week but I've
been out of work for six weeks (heart surgery 2 days before
Thanksgiving). I go back to work Monday. For the last three or four
weeks we've gone out ~5-6X a week. During the day we go out to a mall,
HD, or Lowes (or all three) and walk (a good dose of bronchitis hurt
the plans some). After, it's time to get something to eat. ;-) No
Thank you. Surprisingly, it would have been a walk in the park had I
not had the run-in with bronchitis. I had to stay in the hospital 9
days (3 in CCICU) because of some other work while they were in there
but even that (that I was awake for) was easy enough. Tell her that
we're wishing her well and that, at least in one case, it was far
easier than expected.
