Default Heater for the garage.. Forced air, convection or wall mount?

I have a 24x36 garage, but is partitioned off @ 16x24 ( garage side ) and 20x24 ( woodworking , storage etc )

I need some kind of heater for the actual garage part ( so about 400 sq ft , 3000 cubic feet ) where my car will be in.. It is fully insulated and drywalled.. So what do you think? Ive only used forced air heaters, but even the smallest forced air seems to heat up very quick, but evaporate quickly as well, which kind of drew me to convection.. thoughts?

Forced air

I got a convection one, same style, different brand, and it works. But it goes through propane like mad. So if propane is cheap near ya, or you have 100lb tank, you are laughing. Having to get tanks filled all the time bites.

TORPEDO propane heater for sure! they heat the garage EASILY. My granpa has one and it can get warmer than the house. in my garage i just have an old ass kerosene aladdin blue flame heater and it works too. but Propane bullet heater is well worth the money for sure

well I know forced air is gonna move the air more, but Ive had them on job sites for 10 yrs.. they're loud, and the heat goes away pretty quick, but they do heat up quick.. Convections dont use nearly as much and seem to be better for a constant gradual heat..

I cant do Kerosene/Diesel .. If Im in the garage for a few hrs, the last thing I want is burning eyes..

I would have got a wall mounted Direct vent / direct propane , but the ground is frozen and I dont feel like stubbing in another line.. I installed the boiler on the 20x24 side of the garage last yr... Dont ask me why I didnt do the entire slab.. Cuz I have no idea...

Either way , the "garage/car " part of the garage will hold heat well as I blew about 18" of cellulose in the trusses, and R19 in the walls, which are sheetrocked..

So I just need something small anyways.. Honestly a 20 lb tank would last me 1/2 the winter.. ( which is usually about 5*-15* avg , and -50 below @ extremes )
