    My Reznor had been rock-solid, no complaints. No experience with Lennox in the garage heater department.

    Based on brands alone those 2 are pretty good. Reznor might have the slight advantage.

    Specifically speaking for a garage heater, get the quietest one.

    Save yourself 50% and get a princess auto version. I ran one for 6 years and it worked perfectly and was just as quite as my buddies Reznor. I paid $600 for an 80k BTU unit.

    Reznor at mine and all other close family members' homes. All have been wonderful.

    I found a couple places that will do cash and carry, I was looking at the separated combustion models though which are a little more expensive. Nothing too crazy after my electric bill from last winter using a shop heater, lol.

    Ballpark was around $1000-1600 for 45k BTU, unit only.

    I've had a Modine Hot Dawg since 08 and it has been solid. Just had to replace the main board in it after an OEM only relay died on it. $200 for the board delivered.
    I only paid $300/ea for qty. 3 thru a distributor in SK. I'd have to make a phone call but I can probably still get OEM pricing.

    I'm curious as well. I wouldn't mind installing my self, but I'd still need someone to pull gas to the garage.

    That's why I just say I have a 4" dick and lift weights to make up for it.

    Sounds like a great deal. I already have a gas line, would just need them to droll a hole in the garage wall for the exhaust. Would you mind PMing me with the contact?

    Thought all the ballers go radiant heat if they can't do infloor heat?

    I have a 45K lennox that is almost 15 years old. It has been great except for the control panel needing replacement about 4 years ago at a cost of ~$400. Repair guy mentioned Reznor is cheaper for replacement parts.

    I do know several people with either brand and both seem to be quite reliable. Don't think you can go wrong. The place that installed mine though now recommends Reznor. So could be that it is better unit or just better markup.

    Damn I paid $900 including permit for my Modine 45k install and I had to dig my trench which was about 40'. He even tee'd for my bbq. I wish I still had his contact info!

    Had both, if you keep your garage at a higher temp all day the radiant can be a better choice. If you maintain a lower temp but warm it up when you're working in the garage, I prefer forced air.

    Damn, that's a steal. I dug my own 50' trench and installed the heater/exhaust myself, and still paid $1750 for the gas line (which was the lowest of three outfits I contacted) and they did a shit job.
