Insulation and 6013s
2" of kingspan in the walls and ceiling - and a waste oil heater
I have tried it all over the years.
Insulation - damp inducing diesel and gas blown air heaters - dirty waste oil heaters.
But in a car repair workshop - with the roller shutter open - the best you are gonna get is:
Stay dry - avoid getting wet at all costs - dress with expensive "mountain spec thermals" - then go for layed clothing - good boots - proper high quality wool socks - take food on board at lunchtime - rubber mats on the floor - infra red gas/electric heaters where you are standing about - or keep moving/working.
If all else fails start a customers car up - take it for a road test - call it your office - it will have a heater/radio/cup holder for tea (unless it is a EV)
just get a treadmill in the corner you soon be warmed up hahaaaNothing in the workshop, after 10mins doing stuff I'm warmed up and peeling off layers anyway. Got some excellent thermal tops and leggings that help a lot.
Electric wall-mount heaters in the paint garage bought s/h, do a lovely job.
Have you thought about a false ceiling Fizzy?
Something ive never considered with an EV, where does the heat come from? Electric heaters?
Yup - range drops off a lot in Winter - or summer with the aircon on. In fact aircon can use anything up to 10kw on a big car in a hot country - that will drain your battery very fast!
