Commercial Garage Heaters

Staying Warm at Work with Commercial Garage Heaters

Working in outdoor and semi-outdoor spaces is a hard job in harsh Canadian winters. That’s why various industries asked Calcana outdoor heater owner John Vancak to develop the most efficient, long-lasting heater. The result? High-end infrared heaters of a great variety of sizes and fuel types.

Come wintertime, our best-selling heaters are commercial garage heaters. For those who work in garages, whether as a weekend hobby or full-time job, efficient garage heaters are crucial to a good day’s work.

The Calcana Advantage

Calcana commercial garage heaters have a number of practical advantages to other brands. First, our heaters are wall and ceiling mountable. In other words, they take up no floor space, with no danger of being knocked over or getting in the way of work. They allow business to continue as usual, but this time with a comfortably heated garage for both workers and customers.

Second, a key element of our infrared garage heaters is that they heat garages faster and more efficiently than electric heaters. And, just as importantly, they keep garages heated longer.  That’s because infrared heat works in radically different ways than electric heat. Infrared heaters warm not just the air but surrounding surfaces too- that includes chairs, tables, floors and walls. When these surfaces absorb heat, they also release it to create a reciprocal heating effect.

A lot of shop owners hesitate before investing in their first commercial garage heaters due to concerns about fuel costs. While lower quality space heaters cost a fortune in electricity or fuel, Calcana commercial garage heaters are specifically designed for commercial use. That brings us to our third advantage: Calcana heaters are made to run for hours on end for fuel costs that total just pennies per hour.

In the end, it’s a win-win for all parties involved. It allows you and your fellow workers to concentrate on your work instead of how to stay warm, making for happier employees and satisfied customers.

Calcana garage heaters have been a staple of Canada’s residential and commercial garages for over thirty years. Though our heaters were originally designed for durability and efficiency as per request of the restaurant industry, garage owners soon discovered the countless benefits of Calcana outdoor heaters.

As a Canadian company started in Calgary, Patio Heater Canada is no stranger to the biting cold of the Canadian winter- and spring and fall. Even the summer months often need some extra warmth. In order to provide enough warmth to make a real difference in comfort level, you need not only powerful heaters but efficient ones too.

How Do Calcana Garage Heaters Work?

Calcana garage heaters’ efficiency comes from its patented infrared heating technology. Infrared heat, unlike the heat from most space heaters, warms surfaces and people similarly to the way the sun heats the earth.

As a result, surfaces including chairs, tables, walls, floors and other objects absorb the infrared heat and in turn release that heat to warm their surroundings. Infrared heaters are by and large the most efficient way of heating open spaces.

In addition to infrared heat, Calcana garage heaters include a number of other benefits. As seen in the below video, all Calcana heaters are equipped with stainless steel, even available in 316 marine grade stainless steel! Not only that, but they’re also available in a variety of sizes.

One truly unique feature of Calcana garage heaters is their temperature and output controls, also seen in the video. By controlling  both the temperature and the output of your heater, you can fine-tune the heat to exactly your needs.

Finally, we let you choose the type of fuel that you prefer. Whether that’s propane or natural gas, we’ve got models for both.

The Best Garage Heaters for Winter

Winter Garage Heaters for Commercial and Residential Use

With fall coming to a close, the bitter cold of winter is just around the corner. For those of us who work in garages at home or on the job, it’s hard to find effective ways to combat the cold.

First of all, garages tend to remain cut off from a building’s heating system. Not to mention, most garages are semi–open spaces, leaving workers exposed to constant wind and cold temperatures.

At Patio Heater Canada, we live Canadian winters firsthand and we understand the challenges of working in a garage in winter. That’s why we’re dedicated to providing the best garage heaters in the country. Our infrared garage heaters guarantee both efficiency and effectiveness in even the most extreme temperatures.

Maximum Efficiency with Infrared Garage Heaters

What makes our garage heater selection different from the rest? It all centers around our patent–protected infrared heating technology.

If you’ve ever touched stone or concrete on a sunny day, you probably noticed how they absorb the sun’s heat. Infrared heaters heat surfaces much like the sun warms the earth. They emit radiant heat that gently warms people and surroundings– without the sun’s ultraviolet rays.

While other heaters simply blow hot air that quickly dissipates with the wind, infrared garage heaters effectively heat open and semi–open spaces.


As a result, Patio Heater Canada provides the most fuel efficient heaters. Our selection includes both natural gas and propane heaters in a wide variety of sizes. As fuel prices tend to vary by region, we allow our customers to choose between natural gas and propane heaters.

Finally, our garage heaters are certified for extreme weather, up to –40°C. No matter what the weather, our heaters will keep your garage comfortably warm.
