yep apparently the heat given off is similar to the heat from the sun minus the uv so it makes them feel good too!

Wasn't planning to us horse heaters (isn't that just a grill?), but IMO radiant is the way to go. You can get them from places like CPC and RS and they are ideal for large spaces, and particularly draughty places as you don't loose all the heat when the door is opened. Also great for drying paint by heating without blasting it with dusty air.

Infa red : Ambi-rad array it is then whisper.

The new baxi's have an oxy-pilot so will be a bit more involved to convert than the old ones.

BES in brum is the cheapest place for changeover valves ,reg's and fittings.



As for woodburners in garages, I think you will find that building regs banned pilotlights ( naked flames) and conventional flues (chimneys)
from garages years ago, your insurance would not want to know should the worst happen.

You are probably right about insurance. But you are not supposed to have highly inflammable liquids etc in there either. Bit stupid if you're trying to repair a boat. I suppose I could push it out. Use the resin. Thinners. Glue. Gellcoat. Etc and then push it back in

There is always a way to get over such problems rib workshop not to hard, I would include humidity control.

The most challenging workshop I have ever had to heat, was a large petrol pump repair and overhall unit , intristically safe everything.

My old wood burner is perfectly safe. Just don't park a boat or stand too close to it when it's roaring flat out. I had one in my last workshop and we melted the rear light out of my transit
