Heating options for a small shop
We had planned to install an electric heater hung from the ceiling of out garage shop. We ran a big fat wirre to the location and everything. Then we realized how noisy (to our video producer) the heater's fan would be so we are looking at other options.
The house has hydronic baseboard heat, though the boiler is ready to die at any minute, so a completely new system is not off the table.
The easy way may be to install electrical baseboard heaters in the shop, though those are pretty noisy also (ambient sound matters quite a bit on video).
There are rough floor plans for the shop here: http://www.finehomebuilding.com/item/209...
What are your thoughts? Ductless mini-split? Woodstove? Pull up the subfloor and run hydronic tubing underneath? Suffer in silence?
