    prob not relevant due to the inflammable glues ,but a problem i have noticed with the propane spaceheaters is the moisture in the air they create , also if the room is sealed and draught free then you get a build up of hc and co , if the window is open enough to keep the place fresh then a lot of the heat goes out of the window .

    Yeh my mate has one. It's great, it certainly warms up the air. But it's humid air and as everything else is still cold, the body panels on the car etc have condensation settle on them.

    I am luck that my shop is extremely dry (items on the mezzanine have a decent layer of dust on them), so when i use my propane heaters its in short durations and i use the counterbalance on my fork truck (its the biggest heat sink) to gauge if the burnt gas is causing precipitation dont want damp developing!! ( i have humidity meters in the paint shop to measure the environment prior to painting)

    Try looking at a pellet stove . They are great for dry flame free heating and some fire up via text commands.

    Assuming it's a proper commercial shop and you're going to be there a while, I'd go for a something like a wall-mounted gas space heater (this type of thing: https://www.flexiheatuk.com/product/...tural-gas-lpg/). That way you should get warm, dry air when you need it. If it has a high roof space, a couple of high level fans can gently recirculate warm air in winter or give a cool breeze in the summer.

    over the years ive been using a little devil mobile gas space heater to take the chill off then switch over to Portable Radiant heater which has been ok but because of lack of ventilation it does give me a headache and does cost a fortune in gas as the 47kg gas bottles have got so expensive from what I used to pay !!!!!!!!!!!! but as new unit is bigger and a much higher roof I know it is going to take more work to warm it up …………. thanks for the input so far just need to do some homework on it all

    You need a proper gas powered space heater as Jackgriffin has linked to above.

    We have had units of 3,400, 5,500 and now 8,000 sq ft and these will heat them to 70 degrees easily and are reasonable to run cost wise (as reasonable as any heater can be - it's still expensive). No fumes, nice dry heat, safe with adhesive fumes and wont make you feel ill as all fumes are vented outside.

    Yep, that's the sort of heaters we've got in our huge warehouse at work. A mate has one in his workshop too. They work a treat.

    bit of an update on this ...................... ive done lots of homework on this one as i didnt want to spend to much (obviously)
    didnt want anything too big or ugly !!! and again obviously wanted low running costs ...............................
    so here is the details ................ cost all in with flu kit and delivery was just under £1800 and its fully plug n play with built in tank , runs on kerosene which is only 35 pence per litre !! . its not to ugly and with a globe and couple of stickers it can be disguised as a gas pump
    nice and warm ..................... no headache ....................... and no damp windows like what gas caused .................... plus in summer you can just run the fan result .
