To help size the shop heater and estimate monthly energy costs, consult manufacturers and dealers. Most residential garages require heaters with a capacity of 30,000 or 45,000 Btu. Your heater size depends on the garage’s square footage, ceiling height and insulation, so don’t guess. And don’t oversize your heater—especially if
Some bus companies also make use of outstations (or out-stations), as an additional bus storage facility.

Garages may also contain recovery vehicles, often converted buses, although their incidence has declined with the use of contractors to recover break-downs, and the increase in reliability.
Structural Problems Raised Floor Structural problems, such as rocking panels and gaps between panels, can cause significant damage to equipment and injury to personnel. Regular inspections for the structural integrity of a raised floor system can help to identify and mitigate problems. Equipment and floor damage can happen when using
