I am using r-19 insulation All the way through the shop and covering all the walls with plywood. Someone suggested putting some ceiling fans up there to circulate the air back down. Any thoughts?

Click on to my picture of my toy box. It's 105x48x14. It's got 24" of insulation up there and I have radiant heat in the floor. I set the thermostat at 54 degrees. That keeps the floor at 72 degrees. I don't winterzie my boat. Checked the drives before I left and they were showing around 65 degrees. My kids just send the January bill down. Mine you now it was extermely cool in January in Northern Ky with all the snow and low temps. The bill was right at $300. Pm me if you need help.

I have to agree with them on the radiant heat. My shop is 60x60x14 with two radiant tubes. I really like the heat you get off of them and they are very efficient.

I will not be doing raidiant heat in the floors. I have considered the radiant heaters though. Problem is I havent seen any large enough for this space. I figured force air would be the best. I don't want a heater that emits alot of smell either. I will have a thermostat that sits in this building. Does anyone have any pics of large radiant heaters they are using?

So are you using radiant heated floors and forced air? Or just radiant heat floor?

What type of heat are you using? Are the walls also metal or what materials?

Is this what you all are speaking of? http://www.carguygarage.com/btunaturalgasgay.html this is a 75,000BTU says it is good for 1600 sqft and my shop is 1650. Thing is 20ft long and 15in wide!!! WOW. But will my 14ft ceiling cause an issue here? I can pick this thing up for like $1100 off this site.
