Now that it’s almost December, the temperatures here in upstate New York are really starting to drop. While quite a few people flock indoors to enjoy the warmth of their propane fireplaces, some braver souls prefer enjoying the outdoors all year long. Luckily, you have quite a few options for keeping warm as you relax on your patio.
Propane Fire Pit
Entertaining outdoors is fun year-round when you have a propane fire pit. Not only will your fire pit keep everyone nice and toasty, it’s also quite aesthetically pleasing. Once you entertain your friends around the fire pit for drinks and appetizers, they might start inviting themselves over all the time. Consider yourself warned.
Propane Hot Tub
Of course, you’ll love hanging out in your hot tub, even during the coldest days of winter. A variety of different shapes and sizes are available to fit your needs and your budget. As an extra perk, soaking in the hot tub helps soothe aching muscles and is great for relieving stress. In fact, you may spend so much time in your hot tub that your friends will wonder what happened to you.
Propane heaters are excellent for enjoying time outside no matter what the temperature may be. Old Man Winter’s not stopping you from having a good time!
Types of Propane Heaters
Propane Patio Heaters
Most likely, you’ve spotted these devices on outdoor patios in restaurants and bars. Shaped somewhat similarly to an outdoor umbrella, these heaters emit heat within a 15 to 20 foot radius. Are you picky about the look of your outdoor decor? Rest easy, because patio heaters are available in a variety of different designs best suited to your patio.
Tabletop Propane Heaters
Smaller in size than patio heaters, these heaters are designed to sit on top of your tables. If you prefer dining al fresco, these heaters are perfect for you. Providing warmth to all your guests, you can enjoy a delicious dinner while staying nice and toasty.
Portable Propane Heaters
If you’re looking for a heater for your patio, this may not be the best choice for you. However, these little heaters are portable, making them an excellent choice for your cold weather camping trip. These super lightweight little heaters have handles so they are easy to carry. With a sturdy design, these heaters are perfect for the outdoors. You could even keep one on hand in case you have a power outage.
Commercial Propane Heaters
You may be tempted to buy a commercial propane heater for your home, but it’s simply not necessary. These bad boys are designed to keep construction workers and other outdoor workers warm in the coldest months of the year. Larger in size than residential propane heaters, these units can heat up to 1,200 square feet.
Have you heard of forced-air heaters? Basically, they use a fan to circulate the hot air in a space. This type of heater is not recommended for outdoor use because the heat disperses so quickly.
These heaters mimic the rays of the sun by emitting electromagnetic energy. Also known as infrared heaters, these heaters are perfect for outdoor use.
