Permanent, Mounted Heaters
Heating an enclosed area does not limit you to small, portable heaters, however. A wall or ceiling-mounted electric unit can be hardwired in for permanent use, especially if you know that your set-up will remain for an extended period of time.
This is also a great option for a smaller space where you may not want to take up any extra room with a heating unit. Just be sure that you maintain several feet (at least) of distance from the mounted unit and any other object for safety purposes.
While larger gas heaters are common with outdoor areas, and smaller electric or portable gas heaters are ubiquitous to smaller spaces, the right heater placement will sufficiently warm the area and, more importantly, the people. The type of heat that is distributed is important as well, and our infrared heat works well for many reasons.
First, it provides radiant heat which transfers heat to people, as opposed to just the air surrounding it. Additionally, infrared heat doesn’t reduce the oxygen level in the room, doesn’t dry out your skin, generally warms you more quickly and efficiently, and it can even be healthier for you by improving your blood circulation.
