Keeping a garage warm or at least warmer is ideal when working during the winter. One of the problems with many garages is they lack a 220 volt outlet to run a heavy duty heater.
220 volts is ideal to get the high amps needed to run a commercial style electric heater.
With that said there are many 120 volt garage heater that can help keep things inside a manageable comfort level.
As long as the garage doesn’t have only a single breaker to run all its outlets more than one 120 volt heater can greatly improve things.
How well the garage is insulated and how cold it is will obliviously have an impact on the amount of 120 volt heaters needed.
The average 120/110 volt power outlets can handle between 15-20 Amps of power draw before it throws the breaker. Looking at your power box breaker will tell you the amps of each one.
A single breaker will power more than one outlet and lights. Some garages will have on a single breaker managing all the outlets and lights while others will have two or more.
