Over the past few years, the outdoor patio heaters you see above have gained tremendous momentum. I first noticed them several years ago on a trip to Europe. Sitting down to an authentic Italian meal overlooking the temple of the Gods, the Pantheon, their flames shot up with a burst of color shortly followed by a blast of heat. Now traditionally, Rome in the middle of November is a crisp 60F degrees but at night can drop well below 50F degrees. Although prepared for worst, I was calmly soothed by the warming rays of these charming mushroom heaters which I’d soon become quite entrenched with.
Restaurants, pubs, coffee houses – you name it – are able to keep their doors open later and longer into the winter months thanks to these innovative devices. After being surrounded by patio heaters virtually everywhere you look, it’s amazing to think how we lived without them! Now maybe they’re not the next iPhone but they have certainly caught the attention of the service industry throughout the world.
The benefit of these heaters hitting the commercial industry first has allowed innovation and cost-cutting strategies to take precedence in the last few years. Just like LCD and plasma televisions today, prices for patio heaters have dropped drastically in the past few years as homeowners become more and more interested in heating the outdoors like a pro. If you live in a four-season environment, cold winter nights have got you strapped to the radiator like it’s the last heating source on earth. With the high price tags defeated, patio heaters open up your porch or outdoor space like never before. On top of that, we offer full length covers for the majority of our mushroom heaters to further protect your investment.
But price is only a minor concern compared to your safety. Luckily many of the manufacturers we’ve come in contact with feel the same way. As you would assume and hope for, most of our patio heaters come with an automatic shut-off valve that instantaneously cuts the power to your heater to prevent overheating. The same can be said for a tilt shut-off device in the case of inclement weather. Although it’s not recommended to use your patio heater during hurricane season, you can rest soundly knowing it automatically shuts down if tilted or blown over. Although these are the most common safety features going, some models take it a step further to protect the ones you love (feel free to contact us if you’d like to learn more).
With all these marvelous appliances have going for them, we here at Patioheaterz implore you to find a better solution to frigid nights and shivering weekends; you won’t find one. If you’re looking for a premier heating source that won’t cost you the farm, you’ve stopped into our shop at the right time!
It’s convincingly clear that affordability and safety have finally met comfort. Years after my first Italian encounter, our lives and company have been transformed by the accessibility patio heaters have to offer. The outdoor world comes back to life – whether that’s out on the town for a night out with your girlfriends, on the back porch cooking grilling up some steaks or under the stars with a steaming mug of cocoa in your sleeping bag. All shapes and sizes, all features and prices – welcome to the world of patio heaters. Welcome to...
