So this seems like what I have. Technically I have the FUH54B, but I don't know what the B stands for.

But I like it a lot. It's not super loud, has lots of heat on low, and hasn't had an issue for me in the 3 plus years I have been here. I like it very much. Never had electric heat in the garage but dang it's nice. Usually it's an old wood stove.

Here is a shot of the label. So that's its tech specs. But my model number is as above and made by Marley Engineered Products.

I Run the in floor hot water and love it. You don't loose the heat every time the door opens but would apply to new/renovating construction. Wouldn't recommend infer red however as you feel sunburned at the end of the day.

I bought an Oulette OCH4000 240V heater from Northern Tool. It was on sale for about $70 delivered to my door, which was down right cheap, so I almost had to buy it. It is 4000 Watts (roughly 13500 BTU IIRC), so it's not going to heat up a big shop quickly. I have a 12' x 25' area of my garage sectioned off for winter work & storage, and it does a nice job heating that area. The electric furnace also helps minimize the humidity in this area (unlike an unvented propane or kerosene heater).

For the remainder of my 36' x 36' garage, I use a 75,000 BTU/hr propane forced hot air furnace .

A garage seems like the perfect place for a pellet or corn stove.

I had a large pellet stove in my 40 x 50 garage. Took it a bit to warm the place up, but did do the trick. I have moved the stove to the wood shed, and a pellet furnace will be installed when I get back from vacation.
Nice part is the new furnaces have an inverter built in, so when the power dumps, it can be run on a deep cycle battery. The main blower won't but the smaller back up will push some air.
