Warming Up Your Patio: Tips and Tricks

From festive gatherings to tranquil moments under the stars, ensure your patio is prepared for winter’s chill.

  • Wind Breaks: Use the layout of your space to your advantage. Position furniture away from open spaces and use natural barriers like trees and hedges as wind buffers.
  • Outdoor Fire Pit or Fire Pit Table: A popular choice for heating outdoor patios, these serve a dual purpose. Offered by renowned brands like O.W. Lee, they provide warmth and, with the right design, can be a stunning centerpiece.
  • Outdoor Patio Heaters: In the realm of patio heaters, both aesthetics and functionality matter. Bromic and Infratech are prime examples. Bromic is acclaimed globally for its blend of performance, reliability, and beauty, while Infratech stands out with its sleek, modern design and advanced radiant technology. Opting for such brands guarantees that you’re selecting top-tier outdoor propane heaters that perfectly marry efficiency with style.
  • Outdoor Fireplace: The pinnacle of cozy. An outdoor fireplace heats and elevates the ambiance to a whole new level.

Selecting the Perfect Outdoor Heater or Fireplace

The right heat source can make all the difference:

  • Efficiency: Ensure your heater delivers on its promise, spreading warmth evenly across your patio.
  • Operational Costs: Consider the ongoing expenses, including fuel consumption and potential maintenance. An efficient heater might have higher upfront costs but will save you money in the long run.
  • Fuel Type: Between infrared and propane, consider factors like cost, ease of use, and heating efficiency.

Safety Considerations for Heated Patios

Safety is paramount when heating your patio. If you’re pondering the idea of having a fire pit or heater in a covered area, or you’re unsure about the proper distance between a heater and your home, it’s always best to consult with professionals. At Emerald Pool & Patio, your safety is our top priority with all our heating solutions.

Keep in mind using a heater under a covered patio or pergola is possible, but you’ll need to ensure there’s enough ventilation and distance from any flammable materials. It’s always smart to check the manufacturer’s guidelines for specifics. When placing your heater, be cautious about its proximity to walls, furniture, or other items. A general rule of thumb is to keep at least 3 feet of clearance, but this can change based on the heater’s strength and design. Once again, the manufacturer’s recommendations are your best guide.
