Summer nights are a great time to be outside, enjoying the balmy weather and company of friends. But why should those experiences be confined to summer? Just because the weather turns cold, or if you live in a place with hot days and cold nights, this does not mean that you should necessarily have to bring the party inside. Firepits are one option for heating up a chilly patio, but these are sometimes high-maintenance in terms of getting a fire started and keeping it going. Floor standing patio heaters, however, are a simple, attractive, cost-effective way to keep an outdoor area toasty and let you enjoy the outdoors even if the weather is nippy. Many restaurants use this type of outdoor heater to keep patio seating open and keep people comfortable as they eat. Here are a few more benefits to this type of outdoor heating.
There’s nothing better than an outdoor party. From cocktail gatherings to dinner parties to casual get-togethers, almost any event can be made better by taking it out into the fresh air. Even in winter it can be peaceful and calming to be out in nature. Standing patio heaters make it possible to enjoy the beauty of all the seasons while still keeping yourself, your guests and your family comfortable. For restaurants, commercial outdoor patio heaters allow business owners to continue bringing in revenue from additional outdoor seating even if the weather would be too cold to enjoy the outdoors otherwise. If you do a lot of entertaining or have a restaurant patio, a standing outdoor heater can be a smart buy that will pay off quickly.
There are several different options for powering outdoor heaters, including electricity, natural gas and propane. Electric options, including those with infrared heating sources are a good choice if you do not want an open flame. These are also very clean and non-toxic options. Our propane and natural gas heaters are also great choices and just as safe, due to features that keep heaters from tipping over and may include automatic shut-off. As far as budget and energy use concerns, all of these choices come at very reasonable prices and are very effective at heating patio spaces.
Standing patio heaters come in a number of sophisticated, modern finishes that match with a variety of different décor styles. Examples include different metals, like bronze and stainless steel, and varied designs like the popular pyramid design. You do not have to compromise on style to get a standing outdoor heater that can keep your whole patio warm and comfortable.
