Gas Patio Heaters (also known as Flame Patio Heaters) provide both warmth and light that is perfect for those evenings when the chilly air arrives before you and your guests are ready to finish. The gas patio heaters that we offer here at Heat Outdoors provide a clean and safe way to enjoy your outdoor area for longer alfresco evenings.
There are a wide range of flame patio heaters which can be fuelled by gas. These can range from free standing, fixed/plumbed into the ground, table models, wall units, and pit/basket gas heaters. Due to the ease of use and versatility of gas, one of the most popular types is the free standing gas heater; of course there are many varieties of gas heaters on the market but when choosing your heater it is important to consider power output, safety and heat control; all of which vary by each gas heater model.
Gas patio heaters are now one of the most clean, safe and versatile options for outdoor heating, with no need for mains power and leads causing potential tripping hazards. The easiest place to buy replacement gas bottles for your gas patio heater is normally at a local garden centre or from a number of online retailers who specialise in the delivery of these gas bottles safely and securely.

Flame Patio Heaters
Flame Patio Heaters are the alternate names for gas patio heaters. Flame patio heaters provide not only the warmth that you require and expect from your patio heater but also a warn open fire flame sound to increase comfort levels. The addition of a flame patio heater to your garden area will also provide a nice spectacle and focal point whilst ensuring the flame is secure behind a barrier so no accidents can occur.
Gas Patio Heaters can have the power output described in KW or BTU/h's (British Thermal Unit). It is worth checking the BTU's, this is the engine size and a more accurate way of understanding how much heat will be generated. Table models often have low output; standing models should have a min 35,000 BTU up to 45,000BTU. Anything higher will only marginally increase the available heat your gas heater provides but will use more gas and cost more to run!
Some gas patio heaters only offer a high and low heat setting. Always look for variable heat control which will give you the most options to control the heat coming from your gas heater and also allow you to save gas and get more efficient usage from the heater.
Gas Patio Heaters fitted with a flame failure device are common now. Not all models though are fitted with a tilt safety shut-off. This device will cut the supply of gas should the heater lean/tip over. It is unadvisable to situate gas patio heaters on a slope, they should be placed on firm, level ground. But should someone try to move the heater when it's lit then the tilt switch will cut the gas supply.
