Thanks for posting, didn't know princess auto got these. Don't need one this year, hoping for a similar deal next year.

They go on sale every year at this time, so if you time it well, you’ll catch the sale!

The only thing being that if you think you’ll need one for next year (winter 2020/2021), then you’re best to pick it up now since it doesn’t always go on sale at the beginning of the season (some years it does, some years it doesn’t) and it’s not usually as big of a discount.

Yeah they usually do at around the same time as well, so keep an eye out.

I’m pretty sure that they went on sale at the beginning of this winter season as well (at least the electrify ones did, both 110v and 220v), as I was looking for options for my shed. I ended up getting a small one instead of a wall mounted one like I originally considered.

How much does it typically costs to run a gas line out to a detached garage 25 feet away? Aside from trenching, can it be done alongside a fence above ground?

Just be aware these are NOT CSA approved and should/will fail inspection when you pull a permit from your municipality...

Are you sure about that... this is right from the manual stating they are csa international certified

There are no CSA plates on them and the city inspectors have been failing them here in Calgary.

I have the 50k model in my garage - installed by a gas fitter. Great deal - but don't buy the exhaust kit. I ended up taking it back because the gas fitter couldn't use many of the parts and needed others. He explained that the installs are very specific - and he charged me less for the parts than the princess auto kit.
And now I am going to climb up and look for that csa sticker.

I'm contemplating whether to have something like this installed vs a 4500watt electric heater. The detached garage will only have the ceiling insulated. Any suggestions?

No sticker! - I didn't take the unit apart to see if there was one on the inside. I did not get it inspected, but I did have it installed by a licensed gas fitter who put a tag on the unit.

Lol I had one inspected about 8 months ago, in Calgary, was fine. But then again, he didn't care 1 bit about the heater, just about the gas work (which I trenched through the yard).

Tip: don't buy the pipe kits, hang it and measure out what you exactly need and get it from a good plumbing shop. Remember, horizontal needs to be class 3, which is $$$.

Guys that are considering putting this in a standard two car attached garages - just note 80K BTU is very large. We put in 30K/45K typically for 2 and 3 car garages. If you plan on leaving your garage set to a constant temp with a garage heater, consider getting it sized properly.

You really have to balance the expenses - use a spreadsheet. When I did my calcs, two years ago electricity cost about 8x as much compared to gas, per btu. However, the capital costs are significant. The gas fitter charged me $900 + parts and I already had a gas line in the garage with an available nipple and valve.
Also - the unit must be installed so the bottom is at least 8' above the floor - so I had to open up the rafter space - moving joists and reinforcing the remaining joists and rafters - as I only had 8' below the joists. Also - as part of the install I sistered in 2x6 rafters beside the existing 2x4 rafters for strength and for insulation space. Since, I have insulated the walls as well. However, it was worth it. Using a 30 amp heater cost so much that didn't want to use the garage in the winter and now I use it several times a week. I hope your project goes well.

How much does it cost to install by a gas fitter?
