Electric Patio Heaters
Think about patio heaters and the most common image is a gas heater. Although they are popular, gas heaters are not the only type of outdoor heater on the market today. Electric patio heaters are available and offer several advantages over gas heaters.
Unlike a gas heater, an electric patio heater can be installed close to combustible surfaces. This means you have greater options about where to install an electric heater. Although an electric heater should be positioned
at least 7 feet from the ground, it can be placed under awnings and in other places where a gas heater would pose
a fire hazard.
Other advantages to electric outdoor heaters include silent operation, precise control over heat output, and no dangerous emissions, making them suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. Despite the common belief that electric
outdoor heaters are expensive to operate, they are actually cheaper than gas heaters, costing only $.36 an
hour for a 3000 watt heater. This is an approx. price for 2005, because of the increasing energy price we advice you to check this before you buy.
There are many manufacturers of electric garden heaters, so you have a wide choice in styles and colors. They are
available in stainless steel or powder coated finishes which protect the heater from erosion. You will appreciate the low maintenance of electric heaters -- once installed they are available seven days a week and 24 hours a day. You never have to worry about running out of fuel.
Electric outdoor heaters use electric quartz short wave to provide radiant heating. This is similar to the type of heat that the sun produces, which means that people and objects will be heated, but not the air in between. This means you can use your heater even on windy days
Electric heaters are easy to install and have a good safety record. They are silent in operation and require no messy fuel containers. Their odorless, radiant heat is safe for children and pets, and the lack of emissions makes them safe for the environment.
If you are in the market for a patio heater, an electric garden heater makes a good choice.
