Topic tags/keywords: shop garage hvac woodworking heater

Anyone have any experience with a Modine Hot Dawg separated combustion HVAC in their shop? I am looking for ideas for the new shop build. Do not want radiant in-floor heating due to the install cost. The actual shop space will be roughly 25×30 foot separated off the garage with heavy insulation in the walls. I live in Ohio where winters get below zero for some days but average 20degrees F. I plan on running natural gas line to the shop from the house. The system sounds great and the cost sounds even better. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I have been cosidering it also. However, I have been concerned with when you wish to finish a project and flamabilty issues. The other issue is gas prices are going up and oil is coming down, should I consider a small forced hot air furnace, but same problem, flamability issues.

The separated combustion should eliminate most of the concerns with shop aerosols or dust, ect.. Bringing fresh air in from the outside instead of from inside the shop should keep problems to a minimum. Not saying that stuff can’t happen.
