Patio Heaters - Extend your Outdoor Living Season

Some of the hottest selling accessories these days are patio heaters. It's not hard to understand why -- a patio heater can extend your outside patio season well beyond the regular summer months. Your family and friends will enjoy sitting outside even in the early spring and late fall.

In my opinion being able to sit outside in early spring is a surefire way to get rid of all of the winter blues. There is just nothing like enjoying early spring in your garden or patio. A good heater makes this possible.

You will need to chose between Permanent or Free Standing and Portable Heaters

Permanent Heaters produce the most heat. Usually 7 kW - 15 kW Portable Heaters are less powerful and will produce something like 3 kW to 7 kW. The amount of heat these systems will actually produce are dependent upon the design of the Emitter (surrounding the burner) and the shape and size of the reflector.

There are so many types of outdoor heaters available today it's easy to find a style that suits your patio exactly. You can choose from a wide variety of sizes, depending on the area you wish to heat. There are both freestanding and Table Top Models, and they are all available in a wide variety of colors and finishes.

Today's modern gas heaters have several safety features included. When buying an outdoor heater, make sure there is a safety cut off valve to stop the flow of gas in case the heater is overturned. This is especially important with the probable heaters.

Another common feature on many (Propane) Gas Heaters is a piezo electric starter for igniting the heating element. This makes using the heater as simple as pushing a button, and the heat output can be controlled with a variable heat adjustment.

Table top heaters are perfect for dining outside. When placed in the center of a dining table, they provide enough heat to keep about four to six people comfortable. If your family enjoys eating outside, a tabletop heater is one of the best accessories you can buy for your patio.

Freestanding Portable Heaters are ideal for entertaining outside in chilly weather. Most freestanding outdoor heaters stand about 95 inches high and provide a circle of heat which is about 20 feet in diameter. These outside heaters are perfect for providing comfort to about 10 or 12 people.

There are many accessories available to make your outdoor heater even more convenient. Extra add-ons include foot warmers, cooking surfaces, and lights, and many heaters come with recessed wheels to allow you to easily move the heater to any location. Not all models have these kinds of accessories, so when shopping for an outdoor heater, give some thought how you can get the most use from it.
