 Where do you live and do you have access to any water source, river, stream, pond, etc.

I live outside of buffalo new york and do not have a a water source. I can drill a well if that would work. Thanks

Ground tempature is a constant 55 degrees. You could blow the garage air through a tube burried at the proper depth and it would return at approximatly 55 degrees. Water could also be pumped through a pipe burried at the proper depth and then ran through a radiant heater( one like might be used for hot water heat system) with a fan to heat the air in the garage. The cost to bury the pipe for either system will be exspesive. You might think about a solar collecter as a more efective heat source for the money.

I would say to consult a local heating contractor. I live in North Carolina and I always consult my Cary heating contractor for any energy saving ideas I have.
