Outdoor Heating Solutions
At BBQGuys®, we believe outdoor living should be possible year-round no matter where you live. That’s why we offer a wide selection of patio heating systems — such as fire pits, chimineas, patio heaters, and outdoor fireplaces — as well as several resources to turn your outdoor heating ideas into a reality. Don’t let the cold months stop you from enjoying the outdoor space you’ve worked so hard to build!
Patio Heating Systems
Fire pits are among the most popular outdoor heating solutions because they have a relatively small footprint and come in a variety of styles. From small tabletop fire bowls to large centerpiece fire pits, you can fill your space with both heat and a pleasing ambiance. Some fire pits can even be built into outdoor dining tables! With so many options to choose from, our detailed fire pit expert reviews can help you find the model that’s right for you.
Chimineas and patio heaters are two other great space-saving outdoor heating solutions. A chiminea can give you the ambiance of a full fireplace in a small package, plus you can choose either gas or wood as your fuel source. Patio heaters, meanwhile, take up the least amount of room and are designed to add heat to specific areas. Our patio heater buying guide can point you toward the exact style and fuel type you need to maximize your outdoor area.
If space isn’t a big factor in your outdoor heating ideas, consider adding an outdoor fireplace to your patio. They provide ambiance and a focal point while giving you flexibility in both configuration and fuel type. We even carry outdoor gas log sets for those who want the look of a wood-burning fireplace on their patio.
