I want a heater in my workshop but the more I read about propane heaters and how much water vapor they release into the garage, the more I'm worried about rusted tools.

And not about dying from carbon monoxide poisoning? Makes sense.

we don't usually realize it, but the byproduct of every combustion reaction is H2O, and generally the smaller the molecule the more H2O produced. Propane is pretty small, methane (natural gas) and acetylene are smaller but they all produce a lot of water when used for heating

You do realize that propane heaters don't produce any carbon monoxide, right?


For those that don't know (like this guy) the byproducts of propane heaters are all fine. The only thing a propane heater needs to have to be rated for indoor use is a low oxygen sensor, because all combustion uses up some available oxygen. It's typically only a concern for pretty tightly sealed rooms and the heater running for a long time, but something to think about. Note that you'll also notice (hypoxia, light headedness) the lack of oxygen and likely be able to react, as long as you're not sleeping at the time.

agree, but there are options for vented heaters ( which cost a lot more money though)

i'm on the fence of: do I spend 50-100 bucks for an easy propane type heater which will probably cause premature rust on my metal tools/surfaces, or do I try and convince the wife to get a vented heater for at least 400-500+

right now, i'm just putting on a lot of layers and not spending too much time in the garage. for once a week work, this is ok, but not ideal

This is true as long as your propane heater is functioning properly.

I use a big kerosene heater in my shop with great results. I only run it for 5 or 10 minutes and it's job is done. Doubt it can adversely affect things in such a short time.
