I aquired a fairly new 2 ton ICP gas pack that I installed on the roof for the garage and am happy with the results. I ran it mornings and evenings all last winter and our gas bill only jumped up 40 bucks.
Do you have gas access to the garage?
Thanks for the info. The detached garage is a shell, concrete floor and lots of extra plugs and extra electric panel. Yes, my first job will be to insulate. I'm just happy I will have a roof over my car. As a DIY'er, I would like a more comfortable area to work, etc. I plan to add a whole house generator with a buried propane tank so maybe I could somehow make use of heating with the propane.
By the way, what is "ICP"?
