With cool fall nights beginning to make an appearance, now is the time to decide how you will provide warmth to your backyard retreat. While fire pits are always a welcome addition, you may want to include inconspicuous heat sources in places such as under the eaves of a porch cover or hanging from a pillar or post. Here are a few options for patio heaters to warm your outdoor space quickly and efficiently.
Slimline Heater from Infratech
Our first choice is this sleek and slender infrared heater from Infratech. Designed to be tucked up under a protective covering, this is an ideal choice for a patio or porch. This installed heater is available in either 1,600, 2,400, 3,000, or 4,000 watts and 120 or 240 volts. You also have a choice of the finish on this heater; it can be ordered in stainless steel, stainless with bronze body or all black. Which you choose should coordinate with the surface where it will be installed so it is invisible until in use. This Slimline Heater from Infratech is 43.5” wide, which should be plenty large enough to provide warmth to a medium-sized outdoor area.
Infratech Dual Element Heater
For larger spaces, we recommend the Infratech Dual Element Heater. Available in widths from 33” to 61.25”, this infrared heater is all you will need to turn a large outdoor sitting area into a cozy and comfortable place to enjoy crisp autumn evenings. Once again, you can choose the wattage and voltage that will best accommodate your needs. Its stainless steel construction ensures that the Infratech Dual Element Heater will last for many fall and winter seasons to come.
Sunglo Hanging Natural Gas Heater
Here is a unique option for patio heaters to warm your outdoor space: a small, natural gas heater with tons of quaint style. The Sunglo Hanging Natural Gas Heater is crafted from stainless steel and features a scroll detailed frame finished in black. This powerful little heater is commercial quality and available with automatic, manual or semi-automatic ignition. The Sunglo hanging heater is a great option for a covered front porch or back patio. It perfectly heats intimate seating areas and looks as good as it functions.
Sunglo Permanent Mount Natural Gas Heater
Additional options for heaters to warm your outdoor space include standing models such as this Sunglo Permanent Mount Natural Gas Heater (also available as a portable unit). Its slim profile will not ruin your view of the surrounding landscape while its commercial quality construction and heat output are sure to keep you and your guests toasty on even the blusteriest night. It is available with your choice of automatic, manual or semi-automatic ignition and black or stainless steel finish. If you already have a natural gas source for your home, this would be an excellent choice.
When you are looking at options for heaters to warm your outdoor space, don’t forget about using hanging, mounted and in-ground models. These go further than a decorative fire pit for providing ultimate warmth and comfort throughout the fall and winter months.
