Electric models

The electric patio heaters, usually installed in shelters, can be fixed to the structure of the shelter or installed on a stand. The heat tends to stay at the top which helps warm the whole structure.

The electric patio heater is also suitable for gazebos and covered balconies. You can find models saucer-shaped to hang like a chandelier, as well as rectangular models to be fixed to the wall and others with a base. Unlike propane patio heaters, they do not emit carbon monoxide. You can find a model here.

Propane gas models

Did you know that propane patio heaters are not made to be in a completely enclosed area like a gazebo, which can be an advantage for warming your outdoor space when you are in a group. They are usually on wheels to allow easy maneuverability. You can find a model here.
