BENEFITS OF ELECTRIC PATIO HEATERS
Electric patio heaters are more efficient, safe, and convenient than natural gas and liquid propane heaters.
Electric patio heaters produce infrared heat that heats objects, not the air. This results in no heat loss. All energy consumed by the heaters is converted into heat that makes you feel warm and cozy.
Electric patio heaters are more convenient to use. They usually have more temperature control options, wireless controls, are easier to install, and don't require any maintenance.
Electric patio heaters are safer than natural gas and propane heaters. There is no combustion in electric patio heaters which means no dangerous fumes and lower fire threat.

TYPES OF ELECTRIC PATIO HEATERS
Overhead Electric Patio Heaters are the most popular type of outdoor electric heaters. They can be conveniently mounted on a wall, ceiling, umbrella, pole and some models can even be recessed into the ceiling blending perfectly with the decor. Overhead outdoor electric heaters are a great solution. They look integrated with your decor and don't take up valuable floor space.
Freestanding Electric Patio Heaters are less popular but they still exist. Usually, they look like a pole with a heater head on top and have a cord to plug them in. Some newer models can also double as a coffee table or a lamp.
Infrared electric patio heaters
All outdoor electric patio heaters are infrared. This is great news because infrared heat heats objects, not the air. This means that no heat is getting lost and blown away by the wind.
One thing to keep in mind. Even though all electric heaters produce infrared heat, some of them are better at it than others. This is why some of higher end brands like Bromic can cover larger areas while having the same Wattage.
Bromic electric patio heaters are some of the most powerful and efficient electric patio heaters on the market. Great for commercial and residential applications, these infrared electric heaters are worth the investment.
Weatherproof outdoor Electric Heaters
All outdoor electric heaters are weatherproof but not all of them are waterproof. For example, such popular commercial brands as Infratech and Schwank do not advise their heaters to be installed in an area where rain will be directly on the unit. Their water resistance rating is IPX4 which means they are only resistant to water splashes from any direction.
If you are planning to install your patio heater in an uncovered area, you need one with a higher water resistance rating like these weatherproof outdoor electric heaters below.
