Keeping Warm This Winter With Heaters From Tractor Supply

Finding the Right Heater for Your Needs

As the cold weather approaches, my thoughts turn to how I’m going to keep myself and my family warm this winter. Like many people who live in colder climates, heating is a major concern and expense for me each winter. I live on a farm, so I need heaters that are durable, powerful, and affordable. That’s why I always turn to my local Tractor Supply store when it’s time to upgrade my heating situation for the season.

Tractor Supply has a huge selection of heaters, from small portable heaters perfect for warming up an office or bedroom to massive shop heaters that can heat an entire barn or garage workspace. In this blog post, I’ll give you a complete rundown of the types of heaters available at Tractor Supply, the top brands they carry, approximate price points, and tips for choosing the right heater for your unique needs. Whether you’re looking for a temporary solution to take the chill off a room or a permanent workhorse heater that will last for years, you’ll find it at Tractor Supply.

The Many Types of Heaters at Tractor Supply

The heating options at my local Tractor Supply range from small portable electric heaters that you can move from room to room to fixed permanent heaters like wall-mounted propane units or powerful ceiling-mount shop heaters. They have forced air heaters, radiant heaters, and convection heaters. You’ll also find specialty heating solutions like patio heaters, ice fishing hut heaters, chicken coop heaters, and more.

Some of the specific types of heaters I’ve purchased from Tractor Supply over the years include:

  • Portable electric ceramic heaters – These pack a lot of heating power into a small, lightweight unit that’s easy to move room to room. I have a 1,500 watt model in my home office that keeps me toasty warm.
  • Propane garage/shop heaters – For my large detached garage and workshop, I rely on a 60,000 BTU hanging propane shop heater to take the chill off. It will heat up to a 750 square foot space.
  • Electric oil-filled radiator heaters – I have these in a couple bedrooms for supplemental heating. They don’t get as hot to the touch but provide steady, even heat.
  • Outdoor patio heaters – We have a nice covered patio and the infrared propane patio heater lets us enjoy evenings outside even when it’s chilly.
  • Kerosene portable heaters – I keep one of these on hand as an emergency backup heat source. It can provide reliable off-grid heat during a power outage.

So whether you need to heat a garage, workshop, patio, or just specific rooms of your home, Tractor Supply has got you covered.

Affordable Prices on All Types of Heaters

One thing I really appreciate about Tractor Supply is that their prices on heaters and other heating accessories are very affordable. A small 1,500 watt portable electric heater costs around $40-50. A wall-mount propane garage heater runs $159-$300 depending on the BTUs. You can get an outdoor patio heater starting at $149. Prices go up from there for larger shop heaters, but you can still get a powerful ceiling-mounted shop heater for a garage up to 1,500 square feet for around $500 or less.

Considering the high cost of heating fuel, especially this year, paying a little more up front for an efficient, high-quality heater can pay off in the long run through lower fuel bills. The experts at my local Tractor Supply store are always happy to help me select the most cost-effective heater to meet my needs.

Of course, Tractor Supply offers more than just heaters. You’ll find top brands of thermostats, insulation, weather sealing products, chimney supplies, and everything else you need to stay cozy this winter. Their prices on all heating accessories and supplies represent real savings versus other big box stores.

Helpful Guidance Choosing the Right Heater

With so many heater options out there, it can get overwhelming trying to select the right one. The associates at my Tractor Supply store have been indispensable over the years in helping guide me to heaters tailored to my specific spaces and heating needs.

Some of the key factors they recommend considering when shopping for a heater include:

  • Type of fuel – Do you want electric, propane, kerosene or another fuel type? This often depends on whether the heater will be portable or permanent and what fuel sources you have available.
  • Heated square footage – Make sure to get a heater with sufficient BTUs to heat the size of your space. This spec should be clearly listed.
  • Portability – Portable heaters range from tiny 1,000 watt models to larger rolling units. Make sure it’s easy to maneuver if needed.
  • Special features – Look for extras like multiple heat settings, timers, silent operation, tip-over auto shut-off, and remote controls.
  • Durability – Heatsers for garages, barns and other rugged use need to stand up to wear and tear. Check the housing.
  • Safety certifications – Verify the heater meets current UL safety standards to prevent fires or other hazards.

With this criteria in mind, the folks at Tractor Supply have steered me to the perfect heater every time. I trust their experience completely when it comes to heating solutions for my home and workshop.

Tractor Supply partners with all the leading brands in heating, including DuraHeat, Desa, Stanley, Dr. Infrared, Modine, Sure Heat and more.

Some of the brand names to look for include:

  • DuraHeat – Top seller of portable kerosene, propane, and electric heaters. Known for durability and safety.
  • Modine – Leading brand of gas-fired garage heaters. Powerful and energy efficient.
  • Desa – Makes a great patio infrared heater I’ve used for years with no issues.

Convenient Online Ordering and Delivery

One of the things I appreciate most about Tractor Supply is the convenience. If I don’t want to make a trip to the store, I can easily order heaters and accessories online and have them shipped directly to my door.

Last year I ordered a new 60,000 BTU hanging propane shop heater online because I didn’t want to have to haul such a big heavy unit home from the store. Selecting the heater online was simple with their detailed product descriptions and specs. It arrived in just a few days neatly packaged, and I was able to install it myself in the workshop.

Tractor Supply’s online selection includes their entire in-store inventory of heaters and heating supplies. Browsing heaters on their website lets you comparison shop easily. And if I ever have an issue with a heater purchased online, returns are easy both through mail or at my local store.

Reliable Service and Support

One final reason I love heating my home and workshop with products from Tractor Supply is their service after the sale. The associates at my local store are always ready to answer any questions I have about troubleshooting or properly using any of the heaters and accessories I’ve bought from them over the years.

They’ve helped me with things like:

  • Diagnosing an issue with a propane heater pilot light
  • Recommending the right replacement ceramic heating element for an electric heater
  • Explaining proper clearance and ventilation requirements for a garage heater
  • Suggesting the most efficient locations to place portable heaters
  • Educating me on operating costs of different heater types

I never feel like I’m bothering them with my questions. Their expertise is invaluable to me as a layman when it comes to heating technology and best practices.
