Your Outdoor Fireplace Options

Outdoor Living

Your home is exactly what you have always dreamed, but on those cool autumn nights you want to relax on the patio. For all the wonderful products for your home’s interior, there are just as many great options for the outside. When you install an outdoor fireplace you can host parties, have an intimate marshmallow roast, or lounge on the patio to stargaze. The possibilities are endless, but first you have to find the outdoor fireplace that’s right for you. At Beach Stove and Fireplace we offer the highest quality products from Regency Fire.

Some of the gas products we install include:

The Regency Plateau fireplace burns natural gas and standard features include a stainless steel thirty inch or sixty inch linear burner, an easy access on/off switch, electronic ignition, safety valve to turn gas off manually, and requires no venting. This burner is a perfect option for renovators and home owners because of its endless design possibilities. This burner is available with the option of crystals or fire beads in various colors or volcanic stones in various colors. Homeowners can also choose to purchase a ceramic log set for a more realistic fire. Also available with this model burner is a tempered glass wind shield with seasonal weather cover, and various framing kits. If natural gas isn’t available, home owners can purchase a propane conversion kit.

The durable Regency HZ042 features a stainless steel faceplate and firebox, and 30 inch stainless steel burner covered with copper crystals. A tempered glass wind shield protects the flame, and clean lines create a picture frame for your fire. This model has an easy on/off switch as well as an electronic ignition. Homeowners have the option to use natural gas or propane and can also choose from several fire bed options of glass, stone, or logs to better fit their home decor.

We Know Patio Heaters

Love the idea of being able to use your home’s outdoor oasis during all four seasons of the year? You’ve probably spent a small fortune on making that indoor/outdoor space a special place for entertaining and relaxation; it’s a shame not to use the space during the cold weather because it has no heat. If you live in the upstate New York area and have no heat or inefficient heat in your outdoor room, Beach Stove and Fireplace has a wide variety of heating options for you. Indoor or outdoor patio heating options range from portable gas to built-in infrared heaters. Also, consider heating your commercial indoor/outdoor space with a patio heater as well. Extend the opportunity for alfresco dining and entertainment (read additional revenues for your establishment) when you use patio heaters to attract and keep your customers comfortable even in cooler weather.

You may be surprised to learn that patio heaters can be as decorative as they are functional. There are wall mounted units as well as free standing heaters that look more like sculptures rather than heaters. There are many options from which to choose for both residential and commercial use. There are flush, ceiling, wall, and pole mounted units including those with controls that are both weather-proof and installed in the wall. Power options also can range from 1500 to 8000 watts.

Both electric and gas fueled heaters generate radiant heat. Gas heaters burn liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), propane, or butane. What exactly is radiant heat? The InfraredHeaters.com website explains radiant/infrared heat as:
The transfer of thermal energy in the form of electromagnetic waves. True infrared heat should have one common characteristic: that the transfer of heat is emitted or radiated from the heated object or substance. The source emits radiation at a peak wavelength towards an object. The object can absorb the radiation at some wavelength, reflect radiation at other wavelengths, and re-radiate wavelengths. It is the absorbed radiation that creates the heat within the object.

When using a radiant heater there are several precautions that must be taken especially with portable heaters. Always turn off the gas when the heater is not in use; do not alter or bypass the safety valve. It is important to use the reflector and keep the heater on a hard, flat surface away from any flammable liquids. Do not use heaters when wind conditions exceed 10 miles an hour (so that the flame does not get blown out yet the gas flow continues). If the light does go out, BE SURE TO WAIT ATLEAST 5 MINUTES BEFORE RELIGHTING.

When deciding to use an external heating element for your patio or outdoor space, it’s important to choose the right unit based on the space, intention, budget, and of course style. Purchasing the wrong heater will not only waste your money, but, more importantly will not provide the heat you need—too little heat and you are cold, too much heat and you have a fire hazard. Consult with a sales professional for assistance. When it comes to installing your heater, remember you are dealing with electricity or toxic flammable gas and it is not the time or the place to “try to save a buck”—leave it to the professionals who provide a warranty on their work.

If you are in upstate New York you have the advantage of being able to visit our showroom in Westhampton Beach. The technicians at Beach Stove & Fireplace are NFI certified. As stated the National Fireplace Institute’s (NFI) website, the need for a professional installer with the proper credentials can be summed up in two words, “public safety”. Contact us or stop by and we will share our expertise with you to ensure you have a warm and comfortable outdoor space.
