Patio Radiant Heater - Outdoor Garden Heaters
A radiant patio heater uses today's modern technology and creates an energy-efficient outdoor heater. Radiant patio heaters warm a room quickly allowing you to turn the heat low or turn the heater off periodically saving you money.
Enjoy your deck or patio on a cold night by creating a warm, cozy area. Patio heaters use propane, natural gas or electricity to heat your outdoor space, usually up to a 24-foot radius. You'll spend more time outside enjoying the night sounds and less time sat behind a television.
How a Radiant Patio Heater Functions
An electric radiant patio heater contains a quartz tube that heats up until it glows. The infrared heat then radiates to the room providing energy-efficient heat. Most electric radiant heaters cost no more than 50 cents an hour to operate. For around $15 a month, you could be spending an hour on your deck or patio enjoying friendly conversations or simply kicking back and relaxing.
Propane or natural gas radiant patio heaters include special burners that transfer the flames of the gas burner into infrared rays. The infrared heats objects on your deck or patio, much like sun rays, creating a cozy atmosphere. Because the infrared action heats the area around you, less gas is used saving you money.
