From the time of sparking fire from flint rocks to modern day outdoor heaters that use gas or electricity to disperse heat, people have always enjoyed the outdoors in warm comfort. As the days turn cooler, don’t let cold weather chase you indoors, enjoy your patio year ’round!
Backyard deck and patio warmth is available in many different flavors. Patio heaters, outdoor fireplaces, fire pits, and fire bowls are to name a few of the inventions that come in a variety of styles but serve the same purpose of conquering the cold. Which one of these should be chosen? It depends on your taste, style, and of course budget.
Patio heaters are available in a large variety of styles and use either propane gas or electricity to operate.
Outdoor propane gas heaters use a 5-gal. LP gas tank to maintain a steady supply of gas and have electronic ignition operation. Propane Outdoor Patio Heaters have adjustable heat settings and can warm up a 20 ft. area. Stainless steel propane heaters are solidly built, and provide up to 40,000 BTU’s of heating power.
Outdoor patio heaters require a grounded electric outlet which restricts their usage to only certain places. You can use an extension cord – just remember to use an extension cord designed especially for outdoor use.
Fire Pits and Fire Bowls:
Stylish and comforting, these fire pits and fire bowls look like huge cauldrons – perfect for a spooky fall evening. A protective mesh screen around the top of the bowl keeps the ashes from blowing out. Fire pits and fire bowls are economical to operate and do not require any additional power source like gas or electricity.
Heat Up The Night:
