I'm looking for advice of how to best heat a converted garage space (w/ some insulation). I live in So. Cal and so the lowest winter temp at night is about 40 degrees. Normally I only need to heat the place up a maximum of 10-15 degrees and only at certain times of the day, not constantly.
I've pulled a gas line into the room. One contractor suggested a unit like the Modine Hot Dawg but worry that it may be too noisy (we use the space as an office / guest room). A local heating company suggested a dustless mini split unit which is electric. I've been reading about the benefits of radiant heating units. Would appreciate any tips and suggested sites to visit to learn more.
