Now that summer has passed and the weather is turning cold, it’s time to think about patio heaters.  Many parts of the country stay warm enough in the fall and winter to allow patio use, and a patio heater can take the chill off.  Patio heaters have become an important patio accessory and there are a variety of styles and price ranges available. 

These are some of the most popular type of patio heaters:

  • Fire Pits are outdoor campfires in a metal or stone container.  They allow you to enjoy the warmth and ambiance of a crackling fire.
  • Chimineas are a form of patio heater from Mexico, consisting of a free-standing clay  pot with an opening on the bottom and a chimney on top.  They bring the warmth of an open fire and a touch of old world style to a patio.
  • Standalone Patio Heaters are the most versatile type of heater.  They consist of a standalone post with a propane or natural gas heater on top.  There are also electric and radiant patio heaters available.  If you buy this type of heater, be sure to have a professional install it.
