patio heater is a valuable addition to your backyard when the weather
turns cool, and the radiant heat of outdoor patio heaters from Outdora
create year-round outdoor living enjoyment. Select from gas or electric
operation, and note we have freestanding, wall-mounted, or tabletop
sizes. The glow of radiant heat from an outdoor heater will warm people
and objects, (tables, chairs, etc.) but not the surrounding outdoor air
that can be easily blown away. Our models are effortless to operate and
are made from heavy-duty, weather-resistant aluminum, stainless steel,
and more. Outdoor heaters from Outdora are inexpensive to use and
simple to maintain, and with patio heater accessories such as Endless Summer Wheel Kits you can move a freestanding portable heater about outdoor rooms.
Patio Heater – Convection vs. Radiant Heaters
While we carry only radiant models for your home, note how its
operation differs from convection models. A convection unit warms
backyard spaces by blowing air over a hot surface. These models often
include ceramic plates and aluminum baffles, and when electricity
passes through the ceramic material it becomes warm—that
warmth is then absorbed by the aluminum. A fan then blows air over the
baffle to distribute the warmth about the room.
Radiant patio heaters such as the Sunpak 34000 BTU Direct Spark Patio
Heater provide focused heat, and you can select from our
ceiling-mounted and wall heaters.
They use electromagnetic infrared radiation to warm nearby objects
directly instead of the surrounding air. Radiant energy from a patio
heater mimics the warmth of the sun. It’s a totally pure
radiation that is absorbed without having physical contact with the
heat source or by heating the surrounding air, as in the case with
convective heat. A radiant patio heater uses glowing quartz or a metal
element and reflector. Browse our outstanding selection for the system
that suits your needs. Warm lounging areas from above with a
ceiling-mounted patio heater, or warm tabletops and dining spaces with
a compact Tabletop Patio Heater.
