How Can a Patio Heater Extend Your Outdoor Entertainment Season?

Outdoor Patio Heaters: If you love entertaining outdoors in your own backyard, you know how inclusive, fun and rewarding it can be. And if you have a heated pool and hot tub, your outdoor entertainment options are even more versatile. But with the chillier fall nights on the way, you may be looking at ways to extend the season. 

Not ready to give in to winter yet? We have the perfect solution: outdoor patio heaters.

Outdoor Patio Heaters

Warm Up with a Patio Heater

Did you know you can increase the warmth of your outdoor living area by as much as 25 degrees in the fall or spring with a portable patio heater? It’s true: imagine not having to close up your backyard for entertaining till the snow falls! And even then, you can still get out there and enjoy the snowy backdrop.

It’s important to do your homework. There are three basic models:

  • Freestanding units resemble large floor lamps, which you can place anywhere on your patio that can accommodate their seven- to eight-foot height. You may want to choose one with wheels for extra mobility.
  • Tabletop patio heaters rest on your garden wall, table or bench, and are more compact.
  • Ceiling- or wall-mounted patio heaters free up table space and floor space, emitting heat via a halogen lamp.

So how do you choose? Your decision will be based on how much outdoor living area you are looking to heat, and whether you want an electric, natural gas or propane fueled model.

Benefits of Patio Heaters

Just because summer is over doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your outdoor enjoyment. A patio heater is an ideal addition to your deck and patio this time of year, and here are the benefits to prove it:


When the temperature starts to drop, this can inhibit the fun you have outdoors with friends and family. You may love to spend time outdoors but the bitter cold makes it unbearable. An outdoor patio heater can be switched on and off with the touch of a finger, and instantly you get added warmth that allows you to enjoy your time outside a bit longer.


Many models are small and compact, meaning you can move them when and where you want to. This is especially true of gas heaters as opposed to electric ones, which require an outlet for power.

Table-top gas patio heaters are easier than others to move around. Larger free-standing heaters can still be movable but they tend to be heavy.


There’s nothing like the ambiance of having a fire outside. It casts a warm glow over everything, making you want to cuddle up with a cup of hot chocolate and share stories. Outdoor patio heaters can make an attractive addition to your patio or garden, available in a variety of appealing styles and colors.

Longer Outdoor Use

The longer you can extend your entertainment options in your backyard with heat, the fewer times you will have to rely on costly artificial heat inside your home, saving you money on energy bills. And let’s face it: the longer you can entertain outside, the more fun life is!
