Patio Heaters extend the outdoor season into the fall.
No gas line required as you simply use a bar-b-que style propane tank which is hidden inside the stand. Easy to hookup and operate. Casts warmth downward and radiates out many meters. For a larger patio, use 2 or 3 and enjoy warmth in the evening. The bugs don’t particularly like these either, so the outdoor patio heater will allow you to linger outdoors long after the sun has set.
In southern climates, this is even used in December and January to enjoy the outdoors in the cool evenings.
