Patios are a great place for cooking, entertaining guests, and relaxing, when the weather is right. Usually as the colder months start to come to an end you and your guests are still forced to stay indoors because it’s just too chilly once the sun sets. This is why you need to consider different patio heaters! Heating your outdoor space with a patio heater will extend your outdoor entertaining, allowing you to enjoy your patio or other outdoor living space earlier in the season or in some areas all year round.
Why to heat with Patio Heaters
Patio heater Placement Options and Styles are Virtually Endless! Outdoor heating with a patio heater offers many versatile placement options, a few different fuel options and an array of stylish designs. The fuel options for patio heaters include propane, natural gas and electricity. Outdoor heaters that use propane or electricity are available in portable, table top, free standing, and ceiling or wall mount models. Natural gas patio heaters are a little more permanent and are available in standing, in-ground, or hanging models.
Patio heaters are pioneers in establishing safety standards, so you do not have to worry about them being safe to operate. They do not produce an open flame and the base of the heaters stay cool to the touch so there is no real danger to pets and children being around them. The only part of the outdoor heating unit that will get hot is the emitter screen and the dome at the top of the patio heater since they come in direct contact with the heat source. Most outdoor patio heaters also feature a safety tilt valve that will automatically shut the unit off if it is tilted more than a set degree or if the patio heater is tipped over during use.
Patio Heaters are an Affordable Luxury; providing all of the outdoor heating benefits that you would expect at a fraction of the cost. Generally outdoor patio heaters can be purchased at prices anywhere between 100 and 900 dollars and are fairly inexpensive to operate, ranging from $.50 – $1.60 an hour depending on the fuel type.
Patio heaters can easily be installed in basically any outdoor environment such as your garden, patio, or anywhere people like to hang out outdoors. You’ll have more opportunity to spend some good moments enjoying your patio during the colder weather while everyone else is force to entertain indoors.
