This is my first winter where the boss will be sleeping in my unheated insulated detached garage. I have a small budget set aside where I was going to be running some wires to a 240 volt heater for a 500 sq ft garage. I was planning on heating the garage over the winter to 40 degrees. With my same budget I can afford the bubble - or the heater but not both (until next year).
I have never stored a car before; it does get very cold here in chicago...which one would be better - heat or bubble. Or either one would be fine. Just curious how damaging the cold can get.
If you have the ability to start the car up every 7-10 days and let it get up to temp then you really dont need to heat the garage. The heater is to prevent condensation from building up inside the motor . If you are running the motor on a regular basis and letting it get hot, you really shouldnt have a problem.
