Patio Heaters

Energy Conservation and Selection Tips

  • Natural gas patio heaters utilize radiant heat, warming objects, instead of the air surrounding them. When shopping for a heater, be aware of the size of the area to be heated.
  • The efficiency of patio heaters is affected by the wind; it's best to install them in a sheltered area, providing specified minimum clearances for combustibles.
  • Permanently mounted, directional gas patio heaters can be installed in eaves, along walls, or on specially designed posts and are less affected by air movement, adding to their efficiency.
