Question

Can I use ceramic cove heaters on the ceilings of my 30' by 35' garage? I use it for wood working.

Asked by MICHAEL
Bend, OR

Is dust a problem?  I use a dust control machine. I also spray finish wood. I have a air filter machine. I do not want any thing thats lights up. That you can see. I thing that would be a problem.

Answer

I would recommend looking into a gas infrared tube heater over a ceramic cove heater.

The tube heaters are fully enclosed whereas most of the ceramic heaters have an open face and heating element whcih could react to the dust in the air.
