How To Choose The Right Heater For Your Patio

Posted on

When you want to entertain outside on chilly evenings or during the winter months, now is the time to invest in an outdoor space heater for your patio. Space heaters make a great addition to your patio space because they ensure you don’t have to wait for the weather to warm up to enjoy your French patio furniture from Bistro Patio. When you are choosing the right space heater for your patio, you have a couple of different considerations to make. There are two main categories of heaters: hanging and standing.

How large your space is

One consideration you should make is the size of your space. If you are working with a small amount of space on your patio, a standing heater may take up too much room. Alternatively, if you have a large outdoor space, standing space heaters may be more convenient because they are portable, so you can move them around your outdoor space depending on where you would like to entertain.

How cold it gets

When choosing between standing and hanging heaters, you should also think about how cold it gets in your region. In general, standing heaters heat spaces less efficiently than hanging heaters, so if you live in a colder environment, you will likely benefit more from hanging heaters. Alternatively, if you live in a warm weather climate, like California, you may find that standing heaters work just fine, and better match your aesthetic.

If you have children or pets

If you have children or pets, a hanging heater is a safer choice than a standing heater. A standing heater is too easily accessible to little ones and their furry friends, while a hanging heater keeps the danger out of reach.
