Patio Heaters – How They Work

Tuesday, August 30, 2011 Posted by Stephanie H.

Many people will testify to their favorite season being fall, but what do you do when the evenings become too cool to linger outside and you miss out on the crisp night air? Don’t move the party indoors prematurely just because the temperaimageture drops a few degrees, consider adding a patio heater and add weeks or even months to your outdoor enjoyment.

Resembling very large, free-standing lamps, patio heaters use natural gas, propane, or electric to heat your outdoor space. When turned on the components heat the lamp on the top of the patio heater creating comforting warmth that emulates the sun shining on you and provides a tremendous amount of warmth. Although specifications vary from heater to heater, most patio heaters provide approximately 15 to 25 feet of infrared heat around itself. They are generally inexpensive to operate and use approximately 40,000 to 45,000 BTU’s of heat output.

Patio heaters enable people to stay outdoors longer into the evenings or into the seasons without having to worry about heading inside when the temperature starts to cool down. Depending on the climate you live in, patio heaters may extend your outdoor enjoyment for a few extra weeks or even year round. They can be used in virtually any outdoor environment including backyards, patios, front porches, decks, and restaurant eating areas.
