Maintaining shop temperatures

After watching this video, I made one of such controls and used it today to keep my shop (finishing area) above 15C while waiting for the finish to dry:



(Note: The box shown in the video should've been grounded. My single pole thermostat was from Home Depot.)

You made a few Kapex sacrificial fences?

I have 2 bathroom Dimplex heaters in my 20' x 20' shop. Very efficient and easy on the wallet  [big grin]

I keep the shop at 15.5C. The only thing I'd like to add is a foam barrier for the 8' door, from outside. I tried to find those large foam that was used for cottage docks with no luck  [sad]

Those are the sides for some desk organizers.

Saved the HD link in case I move and outfit a new shop.
