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.

Picazo’s restaurant chain just installed numerous Calcana gas patio heaters in Ventana, one of her north country San Diego restaurants. The restaurant includes 2-terrace, 500 person seating

“We have sixteen restaurants in San Diego, and more coming with an outside terrace,” says Picazo. “If I have a 400 seat restaurant and I have to shut half of that down because it’s 60 degrees outside, I lose half of my dining room. With Calcana heaters I can maintain a nice 73 degrees outside for my guests. They can come out and enjoy their dining experience without being cold.”

High efficiency outdoor natural gas and propane heaters.

Propane is a by–product of natural gas processing. Known for efficiency, propane has powered heaters and machinery for decades. Recent interest in propane heaters stems from propane’s clean–burning qualities and relatively low–cost.

Our patio heaters also run on natural gas, another clean–burning alternative fuel. Natural gas heaters burn odorless and nontoxic fuel. Eighty to ninety percent of natural gas is domestically produced, making gas outdoor heaters highly desirable heater models.

Choosing between natural gas and propane patio heaters depends mostly on local costs of either fuel.

Whether the best patio heater for you is a propane or outdoor gas heater, Patio Heater USA will help you find the appropriate heater model for your restaurant, patio, garage and more.
