It’s nice to be able to use your patio in the cooler months, and there are many ways to heat your patio. You can use a portable electric or gas unit, for example. And if you’d like something more permanent, you can add an outdoor heater that’s connected to your home’s gas system and hangs from the wall or ceiling.

The method you use to heat your patio will depend on the amount of money you have to spend and the size of the area that you want keep comfortable.

The following are a few options:

Wheels mounted to the bottom of the unit make it easy to move, and the pilot ignition make it easy to start when you get it positioned. This unit is for outdoor use only.

Like its gas-fired sibling, the Fire Sense electric patio heater can be used on patios and lanais during cooler weather but can also can be used indoors. This heater uses standard household electricity and infrared heat to chase of the chill in the air. It has wheels mounted on the base that enable easy maneuverability from one room to the next.

This attractive patio heater has a pyramid shape and a square top deflector and stands at a height of 91 inches.

The wheels are mounted to the base for ease of portability. The two quartz heating tubes put out 40,000 BTUs, which heats a 5-foot radius.

Heating a radius of 18 feet with its 37,000-BTU burner, the Fire Sense stainless steel patio heater will keep you and your family warm on even the coolest evenings. Its safety shut-off valve will keep you safe if it tips over, and the Piezo electronic ignition will assure safe starts for your heater.
