Patio Heater Styles

Tuesday, November 29, 2011 Posted by Andrea
Patio heaters are a great way to ensure your family stays warm while enjoying cooler outdoor weather. The type of patio heater you select really depends on the space you have and the amount of heat output you’re looking for.

Full Size (or tall) patio heaters are the most common type of patio heater you’re going to see. They are a great, universal type of patio heater and fit well in most outdoor spaces. They come in a variety of styles and finishes to coordinate with any décor. While they are going to vary from model to model, generally they measure around 87” to 111” tall and produce a heat output of about 34,000 to 41,000 BTU’s which approximately covers a 10 to 20 foot diameter.

Table Top patio heaters are great for smaller outer spaces or areas in which you only wish to heat the main seating area. They can easily blend into any décor, some even look similar to a table lamp making them almost unnoticeable. They are usually 35” to 45” tall, produce a heat output of about 10,000 to 12,000 BTU’s and cover a range of about 4 to 12 feet in diameter.

Wall Mounted patio heaters mount to the side of your house and warm your outside space equivalent to a traditional patio heater. They vary greatly in heat output depending on what you’re looking for, producing somewhere between 2500 and 34,000 BTU’s.
