What Features Should I Look For When Choosing a Heater for My Shop, Pole Barn, or Garage? 

When selecting a heater for your workshop or garage, it’s important to consider several key features to ensure you get the best performance and value. The SunFire SF150 Radiant Heater, with its recent upgrades, is an excellent choice that meets these criteria. Here’s a guide to help you understand what to look for in a heater and how the SF150 stands out. 

1. Slim Profile and Portability 

A heater that’s too bulky can be a hassle to move and position. The SunFire SF150 has a revised dome face direction, giving it a slimmer profile. This allows it to fit through a standard 36” doorway, making it easy to transport and place exactly where you need it. This feature is particularly beneficial in small workshops or garage spaces. 

2. Enhanced Portability 

For those working in demanding environments, the simplicity of operation and portability is a critical consideration. The SF150 now comes with a Multi-lift Bracket as a standard feature, which was previously an optional accessory. This bracket allows the ability of the heater to easily be picked up by crane, forklift, or lifting straps. 

3. Weight and Manageability 

Handling heavy equipment can be challenging, especially when you need to move it frequently or through tight areas. Although the SF150 the multi-lift bracket has been added as a standard feature, the SF150 has been redesigned to be 2 pounds lighter, now weighing 193 pounds when empty and 318 pounds with a full tank. This weight reduction enhances its manageability and convenience. 

4. Quality and Reliability 

The SF150 is built with heavy-duty materials to ensure it can withstand harsh conditions. SunFire heaters are known for their robust construction and long-lasting performance. Whether you’re working in a shop, garage, or job site, you can rely on the SF150 to provide consistent heat and durability. 

5. Safety 

Safety is always a top priority. The SF150 provides safe, odorless heat without the risk of carbon monoxide emissions. This improves the health and performance for you and your employees.
