Gas heaters v gas boiler with radiators
We are converting a garage to an office and we need heating.
Electric is not an option because it would increase ampage above maximum for a residential property.
I have considered a small boiler (separate to house) with radiators and I am now considering Gas wall heaters. The garage has 4 external walls
What are the pros and cons of both??

You can use the house boiler and zone the garage separate from the house depending on size of the boiler and the load already in the house. It would come down to cost more, gas heaters will be cheaper than a boiler.
