Natural Gas Patio Heaters – Product Information

Tuesday, October 11, 2011 Posted by Stephanie H.

Generally, patio heaters function similarly by providing a ring of heat to the outdoor area in which it is placed. They are available in many finishes, fuel types, sizes and designs but what sets them apart the most is the fuel type that powers them. While there areNatural_Gas_Patio_Heater significant differences between these fuel types that must be considered before making a decision, remember that you will get comparable warmth from each type.

As with any product, natural gas patio heaters have pros and cons and these positives and negatives are something to consider  when deciding what type of fuel you want to use in your space. For instance, natural gas patio heaters do not require a propane tank to operate allowing parties to continue for extended periods of time without having to refill your propane tank. Due to not needing a tank they usually have a sleeker, streamlined design. However, since they are hooked up to a gas line they lack the convenience of portability. They should be hooked up by a professional and must remain in the same location once placed or they require further adjustment by a professional. Also, natural gas patio heaters typically require a higher initial investment since they cost slightly more and require hiring a professional for installation. However, they are considered the least expensive type of patio heater to run. In addition, having these heaters permanently attached to a gas line makes them safer with less risk of tipping over.

Regardless of the fuel type you choose to power your patio heater, there will be pros and cons. What’s most important is what will work best for the space you’ll be spending those cool nights enjoying the outdoors by your warm patio heater.
