I have the equivalent of a 2.5 car garage that is uninsulated but does have insulated doors. I installed a Reznor 45,000 btuh natural gas space heater that brings the coldest temperatures up to 55 in about 15 minutes. The unit is hung overhead so it is out of the way and has a fan that moves plenty of air without a lot of noise. I control it by a thermostat and when I don't want it to run, I have a switch that shuts off the heater entirely. I also installed two shut-off valves so I can shut off the gas from inside the house or inside the garage. I'm not sure yet what the thing costs to run since this is my first year using it.
