How to choose the perfect patio heater

With summer drawing to a close, homeowners looking to make the most of their gardens as the temperatures start to drop might want to consider purchasing a patio heater to extend outdoor social gatherings long after summer has been and gone.

With a variety of different patio heaters to choose from, selecting the right model can be a little tricky, so we've taken the hard work out of selecting your latest garden addition with our five-minute guide to patio heaters.

Read on to discover which of our patio heaters would be perfect for your post-summer garden gatherings and will allow you to make the most out of your outdoor space.


Floor or wall mounted

Patio heaters come in a variety of different fittings, so the first thing to think about is where you require the heat source.

For a unit that can be moved to suit, a free-standing floor patio heater is a good choice as it offers portable heat in an attractive unit and a variety of finishes.

For smaller gardens where floor space is at a premium, a wall-mounted patio heater helps save on vital space and keeps seating areas cosy and warm during the coldest of spells. This makes it easy to enjoy outdoor events such as bonfire night with friends and family well into winter.

Many of the wall-mounted versions we stock also come with Wi-Fi or remote controls too, so you can stay cosy and warm with the touch of a button.


Gas or electric

Many traditional patio heaters use gas as a power source and they remain a popular choice to this day. Our range of Heat Outdoors patio heaters come in a variety of styles and finishes including sleek black, bronze or modern stainless steel for a contemporary look.

However, if you'd rather have the convenience of outdoor heat without having to worry about replacing gas canisters, electric patio heaters just require a single power source and come in wall-mounted, free-standing or even parasol mounted versions, all of which are easy to install.

Smart technology

If you are looking for a high tech upgrade for your garden, our range of smart and remote-controlled patio heaters can help you cut down on energy use and add a touch of luxury to your outdoor space.

With some patio heater units offering the ability to control heat from your smartphone via Bluetooth, you can keep visitors warm and give your garden that wow factor you’ve been looking for.
