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.

outdoor patio heating

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.

Why Buy Stainless Steel Patio Heaters?

The Advantages of Marine-Grade 316 Stainless Steel Patio Heaters

Stainless steel patio heaters offer a number of benefits compared to other heaters. In particular, 316 marine-grade stainless steel heaters surpass their competitors in both durability and style.

First and foremost, Patio Heater USA’s stainless steel patio heaters can .withstand virtually any weather conditions. Whether it’s raining, sunny, snowing and hailing, our outdoor heaters remain securely anchored and fully functioning. Not to mention, they’re also certified in temperatures down to -40°F.

Finally, the price of our 316 stainless steel patio heaters is only slightly higher than that of our 304 stainless steel heaters. If your region is home to extreme weather, the slight increase is well worth ensuring your outdoor heater can withstand long–term exposure to its environment.

Is your fall patio ready to face the autumn chill? Fall is fast approaching, and for many of us it’s already here! That means it’s time to get out the cushions, blankets and patio heaters to make the most of this beautiful season.

1. Illuminate your Fall Patio with Color

Autumn’s color palette is easy, diverse and fun to experiment with. As the leaves on the trees turn brilliant shades of red, orange and yellow, imitate nature by focusing on decorations and accessories of the same shades. Don’t forget that purples, forest greens and terra-cotta make for great fall colors, too!

2. Keep It Simple

The great thing about fall patio decorating is that it’s all about being casual. Instead of fancy, over-the-top decorations, use what you have. In fact, everyday objects like ladders and wooden chairs make for a great display. Don’t forget the gourds, apples and pumpkins from your local grocery store.

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.
