Don’t Let Cold Weather Force You Inside


Fall has officially set in, and in New York, that means most people are heading indoors. The wind now has a crisp edge to it, and while the colorful leaves make the outside look beautiful, it does not feel quite as beautiful. If you love being outside but tend to seek shelter when summer ends, you have some outdoor heating options to extend your outdoor season.

Heat up any outdoor area with an outdoor patio heater. They are available is a variety of sizes and heating styles to suit every type of outdoor space. The various styles of outdoor patio heaters include standing gas heaters, portable electric heaters and overhead infrared heaters.

Sometimes known as “umbrella” or “mushroom” heaters, standing gas heaters are great options to heat an outdoor space. The design of these heaters directs heat downward from a height or six to seven feet using a metal dome. Each unit can heat up to five feet out, meaning you have nearly 80 square feet of heated space with every heater. These heaters are generally powered by gas stored in a tank in the base of the unit. Best suited for medium to large outdoor spaces, these heaters do need considerable space from any combustible materials. Large residential patios and restaurant patios are common spaces for standing gas heaters.

You may instead opt to use a portable electric heater. Ideal for smaller spaces, these heaters heat up a space very quickly. They even produce a small amount of light, which could be an added bonus for your space. Electric heaters do not emit any gases, so they can be used in confined spaces like three-season rooms or other indoor/outdoor combination spaces, in addition to small outdoor patios.

A third option for heating an outdoor space is an overhead infrared heater. These heaters do not use of valuable floor space because they are generally installed on a wall or ceiling. In addition, the overhead set up lowers the risk of fires and burns because they are far out of reach. No visible light is produced by these heaters due to the invisible infrared energy used to heat the space. Overhead infrared heaters can be used in any type of space, from small backyards to massive outdoor banquets. They can keep you warm, even late into fall.

Anyone with an outdoor space can benefit from the addition of an outdoor heater. If you want to lengthen the use of your outdoor space by adding a heater, contact Beach Stove and Fireplace in Westhampton Beach, New York for more information.
