Outdoor patio heating can be a luxury seen only in restaurants and other commercial establishments. Today, however, outdoor patio heaters are increasingly appearing in homes.
With a wall-mounted patio heater, you can continue to enjoy the beautiful nature (in your garden) not only in summer but also in spring and autumn. Having an outdoor patio heater means you can have outdoor parties and barbecues most of the year!
So maybe you've decided to buy and really don't need any more persuasion. In that case, we get straight to what you need to look for:
Most outdoor patio heaters today are available with an electric starter. However, make sure yours. It's much safer to use an electric starter than to deal with matches and pilot lights.
Your patio heater also has an automatic emergency shutdown. This will ensure that your heater will turn itself off if it accidentally flips over, etc.
You have to decide whether you want table heaters, wall heaters, or stand-alone heaters. The advantage of tabletop heaters is that they are small enough to be carried easily. While it doesn't generate as much heat as a standing patio heater, it does generate enough to keep those sitting around it warm.
For most everyday barbecue occasions, gas grills are the best choice for convenience and quality. There are cases where the smell of smoked wood actually improves the quality of the food, but this is usually not done in everyday cooking, and gas is therefore recommended.
