Stanley ST-50-GFA-E Black/Yellow LPG Fan Heater 16.1kW
Warms up garage nicely
I was going to get an electric heater but decided that I needed a bit more power.
Went for this as it was the best value for what it does. The cheaper version is not as controllable.
Run it for 5-10 mins and the double garage was much warmer, it initially was few degrees but the heater warms the air nicely and made it possible to work. Unfortunately the air cools down in a short time so I need to run it say 5-10 mins every 30-40 mins or so. Obviously a better insulated garage would help.
I'm not sure how long the gas will last so I only run it the minimum to take the chill out.
Although it says LPG I found that LPG is a generic term and it's propane it uses. I got a Calor bottle which is is similar costs to others over the lifetime of using it and there are more outlets.
Definitely recommend this.

Stanley ST-50-GFA-E Black/Yell
Deceptively powerful for its size, the three settings allowing flexibility. Small, compact, easy to use and effective.

Easy to light
Got this to take the chill off of a big double garage and it does the job well. It is easy to light and is up and running in 15-20 seconds. It warms a big volume very well, but it is loud. No problem for me as I put it out of sight at the far end of the garage. Surprisingly the body of the heater is cool when in use so it must be well insulated too. All in all a good product that does the job for a good price. Don't be put off by the poor reviews.

Everything is good about this product except the quality checks during manufacture. This is the second unit as the first took intolerably long to start holding the button in for up to six minutes. On phoning the Stanley hot line nobody getting back and on a 0845 line too, this should be free and even when told about the reliability issue they had no idea other people had the same issues even though there were complains on the net.
