Thanks guys for your input. Just a little more info for you, this shop is only 500 sq ft. And is well insulated, new windows, doors and the garage door is insulated also. It stays about 40* most the time.

I had one in the 400 sq foot garage/workshop when we lived in town. The garage was insulated, but not very tight (old wood panel door). Only used it when I was out there but it kept the shop very comfortable. It added $20-25 a month to the electric bill for four months of the year (early 90's), but to me it was worth it.

Ahhhhhhhh thanks, with that new info, now a 5000 watt dont sound so bad.

At 240 volts such will draw around 21 amps so for the heaters Branch Circuit simply run a 10/2 plus Ground (3 wires total, 2 hots and bare/green equipment ground) circuit fed by a 240 volt Two Pole 30 amp circuit breaker and youre off to the races.

5000 is plenty. But consider installing an Amana motel unit. Heat and Air for about 1000 dollars. I have two in my Shouse.
