There are 40 million single family residential garages in the United States.
A typical two car garage represents approximately 20% of the unusable space in an average home.
A garage represents the most under-utilized space in most climates during the winter months.
Uncomfortable temperatures prevent activities like workshops, hobby activities, do-it yourself projects, auto maintenance, and recreation in the garage during cold winter months.
Cold temperatures in the garage are also detrimental to vehicles and house plumbing. Ice, snow and salt stay frozen on auto sheet metal, plumbing in garage or adjacent walls may freeze, and it causes slow heater warm up in vehicles.
