Looking to purchase a 'salamander' type heater to heat my garage while working in it this winter. The garage measures approximately 12'x36' with 7 foot ceiling.

How many BTU's should I be looking for in a heater to heat this space comfortably?

Did anyone ever notice how briliant he is ? At least brilliant in his own mind. Actually I have grown tired of his same ol smart A** responses and him pushing his little heat flow calculator. He very rarely provides any useful information to this forum !
