The Best Outdoor Heater from Calcana

As the official supplier of Calcana patio heaters, Patio Heater USA provides high–end infrared heaters. Infrared patio heaters offer a number of advantages to normal space heaters.

For example, while normal space heaters only heat the surrounding air, infrared heaters heat objects and people. That means the heat sticks around longer, allowing for more efficiency.

High Output Outdoor Heaters

When looking for the best patio heater for you, heat output is important. Usually measured in BTUs (British Thermal Units), heat output is the amount of energy the heater emits.  In other words, the higher the BTU, the greater the efficiency. Because Calcana patio heaters are designed for high–efficiency heating, they offer a heat output of 40,000 to 75,000 BTUs per hour.

Benefits of Infrared Patio Heaters

Why should you choose infrared patio heaters?

At Patio Heater USA, our Calcana infrared patio heaters are designed to fire up and operate in all weather conditions. As an international supplier of heaters developed specifically for the restaurant industry, Calcana recently appeared in the National Restaurant Association’s 2015 Show.

Our infrared outdoor heaters run on natural gas or propane, the most low–cost efficient heater fuels on the market. The temperature is adjusted freely and easily with our patented variable input controller, allowing continuous heat anywhere between low and high temperatures. The heater combustion burns cleanly over the entire temperature range and the heat output is even across the entire length of the heater.

Calcana infrared patio heaters’ extremely low clearance–to–combustibles allows for installation in space–restrictive locations. With no open flames or glowing parts, the outdoor heater can be as close as 4–8 inches to an awning or wood structure.

Though constructed of heavy–duty stainless steel, our patent–protected heater frame and structure is easily assembled on–site with simple hand tools. Purchase the frame and structure with or without the infrared heater.

Finally, Calcana’s outdoor heaters are completely unaffected by wind or inclement weather. Regardless of outside conditions, our patio heaters will fire up and continue heating your outdoor restaurant. Because of their reliability and versatility, Calcana’s infrared patio heaters appear in outdoor restaurants and home patios internationally throughout North America and Europe.

How do infrared heaters work?

Heating patios and restaurants with infrared heaters.

Infrared heaters are one of the most popular and cost–effective heating systems. But how do they manage to keep a space warm for just pennies per hour? Let’s look into the science behind infrared heaters.

Infrared heaters work similarly to the sun’s rays heating the earth. This process is called thermal radiation. Matter or objects absorb the sun’s radiant heat, in turn heating their environment.

Like the sun, infrared heaters function so well because objects absorb their radiant heat. For example, an infrared patio heater heats chairs, tables, floors and other surfaces rather than the air.

Therefore, with infrared heating a patio’s heat is based on the ground level instead of the ceiling, retaining heat in the face of drafts or wind. Instead of letting heating costs blow away in the wind, infrared heaters can save 20-50% fuel compared to warm air systems.

Well adaptable to any environment, infrared heaters are also ideal for large, open spaces such as patios, garages and warehouses subject to open air and drafts.

Infrared heaters allow you to open up your area to the outdoors while reducing your heating bills. To see how infrared patio heaters might benefit you, contact Patio Heater USA for your heating consultation.
