Factors to Consider When Buying a Patio Heater

Everyone loves warm evenings but in the UK, Mother Nature doesn't always oblige. This is where patio gas heaters can help out. We take a look at some of the models on the market and the factors you should consider.

When the sun comes out, Britain is transformed overnight. Warm summer evenings see restaurants filled with customers wanting to dine outside, pub beer gardens filled to bursting point and every outdoor space is absolutely choc-a-block with people wanting to make the most of the weather.

Unfortunately, not every year turns out to be as warm as we might like and even when it does, the tropical temperatures don't always stick around for long. This is where patio gas heaters can prove to be worth their weight in gold, extending the time that the outside space is usable.

However, there are many different models on the market; we take a look at just a few of the features which you should always consider.

Heater Weight
No matter how warm the day is, as the sun goes down you can often find that a breeze starts to gently blow. If you have a patio heater to keep you warm, you won't need to worry about feeling chilly but you could find yourself with a completely different problem if the heater is relatively light.

The best patio heaters weigh a substantial amount and although this means they can't be easily lifted, it also means that they won't be blown around by the wind. Picking a model which is reasonably weighty means that there is no risk if the breeze does start to increase.

Some people enjoy being outside all year round and a patio heater makes this far more bearable. This means the equipment will be exposed to all kinds of weather, including snow. A lightweight model could find that vital components such as its reflectors could get dented and distorted.

If you are concerned about being able to easily manoeuvre it around, pick a model which is fitted with wheels. It won't blow away but you will have the benefit of easy transportation too.

Construction And Ignition
Before you snap up a patio gas heater being offered at a rock bottom price, make sure you check the construction. The best heaters are made from stainless steel as this metal will not corrode or rust and are designed to be able to cope with the very worst weather conditions.

The ignition is another important feature. Your patio heater should be quick and easy to light, ideally with an electronic ignition. Models which don't have a control knob can sometimes be challenging to keep lit and at the right temperature.

Patio gas heaters can be a godsend for most businesses, transforming outdoor space into a usable environment all year round. Take a look at some of the models on the market and weigh up the extra profits having extra space could bring and you might find they are a very worthwhile investment.
