Autumn brings darker, colder nights, and the chances to sit out and make the most of our outdoor spaces begin to appear limited. But you can still get the best out of your garden or patio by simply adding an outdoor heater.
It can be easy enough to create a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere to your garden with the inclusion of outdoor lighting, and an outdoor heater can bring the warmth you need to sit and enjoy a drink at the end of the day.
To help you find the right outdoor heating solution for your needs, we have a quick guide.
There are a few different types of patio heater, from simple electric models to gas-powered heaters, to solid fuel burning chimineas and fire pits.
Most likely you’ve seen this type in beer gardens and restaurants with outdoor seating. They’re typically tall and rather heavy, with a compartment for gas canisters in the base. Electric versions are available but obviously, require an outdoor weatherproof power source.
A smaller, more portable version of the freestanding units, either electric or gas-powered, but the small size means they are not as powerful as their larger counterparts.
These would typically be mounted on to a wall for a long-term solution, but this means they are fixed and cannot be moved to other areas of the garden or patio if needed. Some versions attach to a parasol pole to provide heat to those sat around a table.
These are popular and attractive solutions ideal for larger gardens, as they can provide a lot of heat. They come in a wide variety of traditional and contemporary styles, but the naked flames and very hot casings make them a potential hazard, especially for a household with young children.
