Why do you need a patio heater?

Being able to slip on a pair of shoes, pour a glass of wine or freshly brewed cup of tea, and relax on your terrace or balcony in winter or spring is a treat. Our outdoor patio heaters make it an affordable one. They are made using quality materials and are equipped to generate immediate heat once plugged in. 
A patio heater is essential for extending outdoor living enjoyment beyond the warmer months. It provides warmth and comfort, allowing you to utilise your outdoor space even when the temperature drops. Whether you're hosting gatherings with friends and family or simply enjoying a quiet evening under the stars lying on a garden sofa, a patio heater ensures that everyone stays cosy and relaxed. Additionally, it adds ambiance to your outdoor setting, creating a welcoming atmosphere for any occasion. With a patio heater, you can make the most of your outdoor space year-round, maximising its utility and enhancing your overall outdoor living experience. At sweeek you can find many different types of patio heaters available.

Different types of patio heaters

Choosing the right type of heater is easier when you know the capabilities of each one. A propane heater, for example, heats a wider circumference. Most outdoor heating products fit in well with the decor of different terraces and gardens. This is because they are made using materials such as aluminium which are unimposing. The light from a bulb or the glow of a fire can even be said to improve or soften the lighting of your outdoor area.

Gas patio heaters

Choosing a natural gas patio heater is not a decision to be made lightly. They tend to be the most expensive outdoor heater, however, they are recognised for their durability. The chief drawback of a natural gas heater is that it needs to be connected to a gas line and it cannot be moved around like a propane or electric patio heater.

Electric patio heaters

There is a lot to be said in favour of electric heaters. They require less maintenance and are suitable for small terraces or patios. Using bulbs to generate heat, an outdoor electric heater functions efficiently and its understated materials mean it is not an eyesore in your little oasis.

Choosing the right electric patio heater 

Depending on the size of your terrace or patio and whether it is sheltered or not will determine the type of electric patio heater you need.
All of our electric patio heaters require an outlet for them to be plugged in. Most of our outdoor heating products have 3 levels of intensity (800W / 1200W / 2000W) giving you the freedom to adjust the heating level according to the temperature on any given day.

  • Hanging patio heater: hanging your patio heater will set a similar scene to your living room. If you want to have friends over for dinner on a chilly night, putting your hanging patio heater over your garden table will keep them cosy. Our electric hanging patio heater comes with a suspension kit (chain and hook) making it easy for you to hang it.
  • Wall patio heater: mounting an electric wall heater is the perfect solution to heating your terrace or balcony. You don’t need to worry about the warmth only being concentrated on one spot because our wall heaters are adjustable.It is more discreet than a hanging heater because it is hardly noticeable on the wall.
  • Freestanding patio heater: a freestanding heater can tie a garden sofa set together. Not only will it keep you warm but the mellow, orange light enhances the serenity you seek when lounging on your terrace. It needs to be able to be plugged in but is more portable in comparison to hanging or wall heaters.

Do you need more than one patio heater?

Deciding whether you need more than one patio heater depends on a number of factors. It depends on things such as your lifestyle and the size of your outdoor living space. Unless you are going to be hosting big parties with lots of people, one patio heater should suffice. It would be useful to have one there if you feel like sitting outside in the fresh air during the occasional evening or wintry day.
If your terrace is not a straightforward square or rectangular shape, and has alcoves or irregular sections, you might need several outdoor heaters to cover the space. It is important to remember that patio heaters are not going to generate the same heat you would expect from your living room. The warmth cannot be trapped in the same way because it is exposed to cold air, however, a patio heater is an effective way of making sitting outdoors all year-round possible.
Aside from all of the technicalities and make-up of patio heaters, they are undeniably an asset to have on your terrace or balcony. Having one or more removes the unnecessary disappointment of having to put away your garden furniture during colder months. Some of your most memorable moments might just happen bunched together with your family around a flickering fire or chatting under the warm embrace of an electric heater.
Furthermore, a patio heater enables you to continue enjoying outdoor barbecues and cooking on plancha grills even during cooler weather, making it a versatile addition to any outdoor entertainment area. Explore our selection and choose the right patio heaters for you!
