answer 2
My garage is about 600 square feet, insulated walls and ceiling (just fiberglass, nothing exotic), plus R-18 insulated garage doors. 17,000 btu works fine, but add a small fan blowing downward to pull the stratified hot air down to the concrete slab. Getting the concrete warm takes 24 hours, but after that the shop is comfortable for all kinds of work. The stored heat in the concrete is valuable, since if you are doing painting, spraying, and handling anything flammable I turn off ALL heat sources and air out the garage for a few minutes, and the concrete holds the heat until I can put the heater on again.

answer 2
I am a hobbyist, and part time electrician, I would NOT recommend putting two of these heaters on a single circuit. It draws a lot of amps, you risk the possibility of an overload, and a fire, plus you would have to use a thicker wire, and when attempting to hard wired that thicker wire into the heater, it would almost appear impossible to work, bend and mount that size wire within the heater box, my biggest fear would be overloading the circuit and risk a potential fire.

Question

Why is it recommended to be installed 8' from the floor?

Why is it recommended to be installed 8' from the floor? I cannot do that in my shop - and since heat rises, any heat is more efficient when located close to the floor.

Thanks
