I work in my heated garage, mostly in the winter ... I need to get air condiftioning in there.

A Dehumidifier is an absolute requirement.

As far as heating goes when I had a shop in my garage for carpentry work I was looking at one of those radiant gas heater thingys. They were about $800-$900 bucks for the one I needed, my garage was a 2 1/2 car garage. Seemed pretty reasonable to me. You will want the garage insulated for sure.
