I use four in my garage but what you really need is a dehumidifier to remove the moisture in the air.

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

Agree on this, have epoxy sealed floor in the garage so no rising damp but when dehumidifier goes offline the heat only exacerbates corrosion rate.

If you can't dehumidify or concerned about electricity costs, then the next best thing is good ventilation. I large vent on two opposing walls, allows natural through air ventilation. If you think about it, by and large, that's what a cocoon is doing.

This. Best thing I ever did. My garage condensation can get bad in the winter. This sorted the problem.

Not wanting to sound posh i put underfloor heating in my garage, the only thing is it would be a pain in the arse to retro fit. No condensation, it drys a wet car. and its a nice working environment. It just took  a bit  of forward planning.
