How an Electric Patio Heater Can Extend the Summer
Extend Warm Summer Days with an Electric Patio Heater
If you're among those who welcome fall with mixed emotions - happy for the change of season but somewhat sad for the carefree warm summer nights - we have good news!
A great way to stay warm in outdoor spaces is an electric patio heater.
An outdoor electric heater typically uses infrared heating technology. Take a look at the Infrared Telescoping Black Steel Pole-Mounted Patio Heater. This patio heater is super convenient because it runs on regular household electric current. This makes it a versatile heating device that can be used both indoors and outdoors. And it can warm up at least 6 people at a time.
How the Heating Works
The best patio heaters in the market can heat areas up to 200 square feet. Infrared heating is a form of “short wave” heating, where people and objects are heated, but not the air around them. This means that an electric patio heater can warm up you up effectively, even on a windy day. And this type of heating is much more efficient than gas and propane heaters.
Patio Heater Energy Efficiency
With regard to power costs, an outdoor electric heater is definitely much cheaper to operate than a gas or propane patio heater. You can operate an electric patio heater for as low as $0.11-0.27 per hour. Plus, it doesn’t produce fumes because no fuel is burned.
While it's less expensive to operate than propane patio heaters, it has a 90% heating efficiency.
