Another reason I’m happy to be in Virginia. Seldom reaches single digits, and a day below freezing all day is unusual. (like today). 28×46 shop is super insulated and a 1.5 ton heat pump is all it needs to keep it warm. It stays at 60 deg. most of the time and I’ll bump it up to 65 or 68 degrees while I am working. The 10kw strip heaters come on at that point but only run for a short time.
