    We’re relocating to a new office space shortly, which is a former double garage that has been lovingly refitted as a design studio. The space is approximately 30 square metres big and has brick walls and concrete floors. I am currently looking into the best heating solution for the space, but don’t have an enormous budget. Any recommendations would be very welcome. Many thanks.

    I assume you’re talking an electric heater.

    Check out the radiant heating panels at http://www.nobo.com.au, there’s probably other similar products but I have actually used these (in a drafty old weatherboard house) and found they worked well and were not exorbitant to run.

    They were easy to set up (you can wall mount them and they don’t need an electrician), and easy to take away intact if you’re renting.

    Enjoy the new space.

    We use electric heating foot mats and under-carpet/under-rug mats from coldbuster for our heating needs. It is brilliant as it works with the nature of rising heat, feels great underfoot and is cost-effective for space-heating a small room. I’d say it could work for your 30sqm room.

    A short blurb on this here http://www.coldbuster.com.au/news-articles/foot-warmer-mats.html

    On another note, as many garages do not have insulation, I hope the refit of your new office space included insulation in the walls and ceilings. Otherwise, you’d find your electricity bill sky-rocking.

    Hi Jen is it?

    You might consider a small reverse air conditioner. Great for summer too!

    You can still get the 10amp window rattlers. Just needs a handy friend to install and they are quite efficient for heating.

    Google this to see what I mean

    Kelvinator – KWH39HRE
    Window Wall Reverse Cycle Air Conditioner 3.9kW

    Or if your budget allows…. Just get a local guy to quote on installing a split system A/C even better.

    You will be warm (quickly) in winter & cool in summer.

    Hi all i am new on this conversation so, I think Hydronic heating is a safe, flexible, and comfortable way to heat for home and small office, this can also help reduce regular heating bills!!!

    In fact, now there are many options that would be suitable, but I dare to offer you an electric heater, they come in different sizes and consume energy in different ways. So it is best to check with the salesperson what kind of heater would be better to buy for a particular room.
