Restaurant Heaters for the Holiday Dining Season

How Restaurant Heaters Help Outdoor Patios Thrive

It’s not just the season for holiday shopping, but also for holiday dining. This time of year is perfect for gathering with friends and family. Not to mention, everyone is looking to escape from the cold for a nice hot meal.

For all restaurant owners and managers this seasonal uptick comes as no surprise. Naturally, you’re experts in the ebb and flow of the restaurant business. But have you considered all your options for making your customers as comfortable as possible?

Whether your restaurant boasts a cozy backyard patio or extensive terraces, winter inevitably poses a problem. Maintaining a comfortable temperature is especially difficult this time of year. As a result, many restaurant owners struggle to keep their outdoor patios open all year round.

Meanwhile, Calcana restaurant heaters equip patios for service 365 days a year. In spite of wind, rain, snow and temperatures as cold as -40°F, our outdoor heaters maintain a comfortable temperature.

Thanks to Calcana restaurant heaters from Patio Heater USA, thousands of restaurants across the country extend their dining season through the holidays. Many even keep their restaurant patios open all year!

Calcana restaurant heaters are renowned for their durability, efficiency and low operating costs. In fact, our heaters are so efficient that their fuel costs amount to just pennies per hour. And, unlike lower quality heaters, Calcana outdoor heaters truly make a difference in patio temperature.

Outdoor Heating Panels

Three Reasons to Use Outdoor Heating Panels

Outdoor heating panels from Patio Heater USA offer a number of advantages compared to free-standing heaters.

1. Efficiency with Infrared Outdoor Heating Panels

Unsurprisingly, when looking for an outdoor heater most customers’ main concern is efficiency. Efficient outdoor heating systems are essential for both financial and practical reasons. First, inefficient heaters use too much fuel, which in turn costs money to replace. Moreover, inefficient heaters simply lack the power to keep an outdoor space warm.

On the other hand, efficient heaters prove their worth by saving money and effectively heating open spaces. So what’s the secret to efficient outdoor heaters?

At Patio Heater USA, we take pride in offering patent-protected infrared outdoor heaters. In other words, our heaters emit infrared heat, warming outdoor areas much like the sun’s thermal heat warms the earth. That means that infrared heat concentrates on the target area rather than dispersing to surroundings.

2. More Floor Space

Naturally, homeowners owners value their houses’ floor space. In general, home patios are cozy but limited spaces. Therefore homeowners often try to maximize floor space whenever possible. When it comes to patio heaters, a free-standing heater is just one more thing to occupy limited space. On the other hand, outdoor heating panels provide comfortable warmth while conveniently mounted on ceilings or walls.

Similarly, restaurant owners also value their patios’ floor space. While restaurant patios tend to be much bigger than residential patios, each square foot counts. That’s because more floor space means more room for tables and customers. Patio Heater USA’s outdoor heating panels provide the perfect alternative to mushroom style heaters. In fact, thousands of restaurants around the country use our wall and ceiling mounted patio heaters.

3. Highest Safety Standards

Finally and most importantly, outdoor heating panels from Patio Heater USA are among the safest heaters available. Because they have no open flames or glowing red parts, they offer extremely low clearance-to-cumbustibles. In other words, they considerably reduce the risk of fire.

Additionally, because our heaters are wall and ceiling mounted, they pose no risk of being knocked over. While free-standing heaters can be bumped into or tripped over, our patio heaters are virtually problem-free.

In the end, outdoor heating panels from Patio Heater USA greatly improve the outdoor experience. They keep people comfortably warm while maintaining efficiency, floor space and safety standards. Shop for patio heaters online or call us today at 800–778–6729 for more information!

Overhead Heaters: The Patio Restaurant Solution

Transforming Restaurants with Overhead Heaters

No matter where you live, enjoying a meal outdoors is a universal delight. That’s why so many restaurants provide outdoor patios and terraces for their customers.

But when it comes to outdoor dining, there’s one key factor that can make or break the experience: temperature. Cold or even slightly cool temperatures result in an uncomfortable outdoor meal. On the other hand, an efficient overhead heater transforms an outdoor patio into a pleasantly warm oasis. In any weather!

At Patio Heater USA, we’ve built a decades-long relationship with the restaurant industry. In fact, back in the 1980s restaurant owners approached our founder John Vancak and requested long-lasting efficient outdoor heaters for their patios. As a result, John Vancak designed, patented and produced the industry’s most durable and trusted patio heaters.

The Importance of Overhead Heaters

So why buy overhead heaters as opposed to other models? In our 30 years of experience providing outdoor heating, we’ve consistently found that overhead heaters work best in restaurant patios.

First, an overhead heater targets the heating area with greater accuracy. While a free-standing patio heater next to the table only reaches the nearest clients, an overhead heater’s output spans the entire table.

Most importantly, as infrared heaters, our patio heaters are by far the safest patio heaters. Our outdoor heaters rely on propane and natural gas, therefore they require no electrical cords or outlets. Additionally, they’re mounted on the ceiling, far away from foot traffic. There’s virtually no danger of tripping over cords or accidentally knocking over heaters.

Outdoor Patio Heating 101

The Basics of Outdoor Patio Heating

Thinking about installing outdoor patio heating, but not sure where to begin? Then you’re in the right place!

When it comes to outdoor heating, selecting the right patio heater can at first seem overwhelming. That’s why we’ve created a list of different types of patio heaters and how they work.

Propane Patio Heaters

Generally speaking, propane outdoor heaters are the most popular. Given that propane is both low–cost and easily accessible, it’s a convenient outdoor patio heating option. You can find propane in standard 20–pound tanks at local grocery or hardware stores.

So how do propane heaters work? It’s as simple as flipping an ignition switch. Upon flipping the switch, and a spark ignites the propane gas. You can then adjust the strength of the heat to your preference.

Propane outdoor heaters require no electrical connection and generate a high heat output, which makes them ideal for large, open spaces.

Propane and natural gas heaters are ideal for heating large, open spaces.

Electric Patio Heaters

Unlike propane heaters, electric heaters work best in small, enclosed areas. Naturally, they also require access to a power outlet.

While electric patio heaters never need a fuel refill, their power is more limited than propane or natural gas heaters. Additionally, even weatherproof electric heaters need to be sheltered from rain and snow to prevent damage and electric shock.

Natural Gas Patio Heaters

Similar to propane heaters, natural gas heaters provide high–powered outdoor patio heating. In some cases, you can conveniently connect these outdoor heaters to the nearest natural gas outlet.

Also like propane heaters, natural gas patio heaters work with an ignition switch rather than electric outlets. That means they’re more portable and weatherproof than electric heaters.

The Best Outdoor Patio Heating Solution

In the end, the best outdoor patio heating method depends on your unique needs. For open air heating in commercial and residential spaces, propane and natural gas heaters offer the most power and the best price. However, an electric heater may be adequate for small-scale, occasional use.

3. Make It Cozy

Nothing is more comforting than the feeling of being nice and warm when the weather outside turns chilly. It goes without saying that blankets and cushions are essential fall patio accessories. Add a wool tartan throw and don’t be afraid to add extra comfort with plenty of pillows.

The Benefits of Outdoor Infrared Heating

Efficient Infrared Heating for Outdoor Spaces

Imagine standing in a patch of shade on a cool but sunny day. The moment you step into the sun you suddenly feel much warmer, despite the fact that the air temperature remains the same. Thanks to the sun’s radiant heat, we can warm ourselves in the sunlight or cool off in the shade.

Infrared heaters heat an area much like the sun heats the earth. Similar to the sun’s rays, the heater’s radiant heat gently warms surfaces such as floors, tables and people. In short, infrared heating allows you to enjoy all the benefits of sun-like heat without harmful ultraviolet rays.

So when the sun sets, outdoor infrared heating is the best way to maintain gentle, cost effective warmth on your patio. While regular space heaters simply blow hot air that quickly dissipates, infrared heaters offer the most efficient heating. By heating objects rather than air, they keep your patio warmer for longer and cheaper.

Infrared Heating with Stylish Stainless Steel

Not only does Patio Heater USA offer efficient heating, but also style. We design our high–end infrared heaters with stainless steel frames, adding both durability and good taste. In addition to looking great, our stainless steel heaters withstand extreme temperatures and weather.

With one easy installation, you can enjoy your patio heater any time of the year. Their stainless steel frames are wall and ceiling mountable. So they stay conveniently out of your way while tastefully blending in with their surroundings.
