Top Rated Gas, Electric, and Commercial Patio Heaters
An effective patio heater is one of the best ways to maximize your outdoor space, whether it’s residential or commercial. Keeping guests warm into the evening and during colder months is the mark of a good host, but we know that sorting through the dozens and dozens of patio heaters on the market can be a hassle. That’s why BBQGuys® has put its two decades of outdoor heating expertise to use with this helpful list of the year’s best patio heaters. Today’s outdoor heaters are better than ever before, but we can help you find the best one based on your needs. Our list was created using the following criteria:
Value - Price is merely one of the factors we look at to find a patio heater’s value. We chose patio heaters that boast helpful technology and solid construction from trusted manufacturers with excellent customer service and warranties.
Innovation - You probably imagine old-school gas mushroom models when picturing patio heaters, but the industry has made great strides when it comes to design. Products on this list have the newest tech innovations like directional infrared radiant heating, remote controls, and closed systems that allow you to manage multiple heaters or entire circuits with one remote.
Durability - Because patio heaters need to perform in the elements, the best models are made to be sturdy and weather-resistant. When shopping for your business, you need to know that your heater will last for years without breaking down. Our favorite patio heaters have excellent warranties — many are even warranted for commercial use — and stainless steel bodies that’ll look and work great for years to come.
