It Depends....

Greetings JDM,

on what you have to work with.

No open flames is a good start.

You should not have any appliance that has a flame because of the cars that are above you and the fumes from the gas tanks can travel down. So even a heater that is suspended from the ceiling could cause an explosion.

I would think that electric heat would be the safest.

It really depends on your area.

Check with your local Building Inspector to find out what is approved in your area.

I have seen and heard what a wood stove has done when it blew up in a garage! A flame is a flame, no matter how big.

Let's keep you around.

Good Luck,
