What is Gas Garden Heating?

Gas Patio Heaters are heaters which produce a flame using a gas ignition. A gas heater provides radiant heat which warms the air around the heater. This air is then utilised to warm you, or the area you reside within.

Gas Heaters offer a superb portable heating option. Often used in areas where an electricity supply cannot be achieved. Eliminating trailing wires which pose safety concerns or an unattractive aesthetic.

The Heat Outdoors gas range requires the use of a Propane gas bottle. These can be neatly stored within the metal surround of the heater itself. As an alternative we supply a special gas bottle cover.

Gas garden patio heaters are renowned for their welcoming warmth and attractive visual features. Offering style and heat combined, as well as a relaxed and romantic ambience.

Gas heating will create a stunning visual impact within all outdoor garden or commercial settings. It is often used as an aesthetic addition to electric infrared heating systems.

Which are the most popular gas outdoor heaters

Pyramid Flame Gas Patio Heater

Undeniably stylish, the dancing flame of a pyramid heater is an attractive addition to any garden. You could be hosting an intimate evening get-together or a full-scale garden party extravaganza. A flame pyramid heater will provide a great deal of pleasure for everyone.

With a generous heat output of 13.5kW, flame pyramids like the Athena Plus+ can provide comfort for large gatherings and outdoor events. You won’t need more than a few to keep a large patio or terrace nice and toasty.

Robust in any weather, the Athena Gas Patio Heater comes in a rust-resistant stainless steel finish. Its flame is protected from sudden gusts of wind by a tubular glass enclosure.

Flickering Spiral Flame Gas Patio Heater

The Santini Gas Flame Heater is assembled in seven easy steps. Easy to use, its simple push-button starting mechanism is intuitive to use. This makes it one of the most popular types of outdoor gas heater for commercial enterprises like restaurants and pubs, where front-of-house staff are rushed off their feet.

With a powerful heat output and wide heating radius, lamp-style heaters can warm a large outdoor area. The money you spend on gas literally goes a long way.

Featuring a canopy top to protect the flames from sudden rain showers and the inevitable ‘presents’ dropped by birds, lamp heaters are an obvious choice for hassle-free outdoor heating.

Traditional Lantern Flame Gas Patio Heater

As with all gas heaters, traditional lamp-style models are incredibly easy to assemble, operate and refuel.

The Sherpa Gas Patio Heater is classically styled, with the traditional mushroom/lantern shaped top which contrasts the modern triangular or tubular shaped models. Offering classic elegance and a whole load of heat too.

The impressively large reflector situated at the top of this gas heater allows heat to be radiated downwards. This prevents the heat generated floating off into the air above your head.

Camping Style Gas Fire Pits

For the ultimate ‘campfire’ feeling (without that tiresome hunt for firelighters and kindling), gas fire pits are becoming a popular addition to outdoor terraces and rooftop venues.

Running on propane gas and nothing else, a fire pit won’t leave your clothes and hair smelling of smoke, and it’ll burn steadily. This means you and your guests will enjoy a consistent level of warmth without any lingering odours.

Some models have decorative surrounds or tables surrounding the fire pit, often built using eye-catching materials such as concrete, terracotta or coloured glass. This makes them an attractive focal point at barbecues and outdoor get-togethers.

Because the flames are exposed, fire pits are also unsuitable for use in high winds or in rainy weather. Gas patio heaters are specifically designed to withstand the elements.

Why choose a Gas Garden Patio Heater

Heat, Heat and more Heat

Gas heaters have an admirable ability to throw heat over a generous area. They create a perfect circle of sensational heat. Your guests never need to huddle directly underneath flames to feel the benefit.

Easy Assembly

All our stainless steel gas models come with a small number of parts, and a clear set of assembly instructions. They also include written safety guidance. This makes them quick and easy to put together. You can set up a gas heater in a matter of minutes. The stainless steel construction and power coated finish keep it looking good for years.

Once you have assembled your patio heater, all you need is a gas canister and away you go!

Making a move

Gas models are often more portable than electric heaters. They are powered by an internally fitted gas canister. This allows you to place your heater almost anywhere you please as long as it’s safe. Rather than having to fix it to a wall or install it near a mains power socket.

Some gas patio heaters – such as the Sherpa – have wheels attached to the bottom. The wheels allow you to effortlessly pull them from A to B.

Never mind the weather

Whereas some electric heaters can be unsuitable for open-air use during rain, snow or other wet weather, gas models have no electrical component. Gas heaters can be left outdoors all year. To help protect your gas garden heater when not in use, be sure to safeguard it with a patio heater cover. These really do save money in the long run.

The price is right

Although electric patio heaters are more economical than gas heaters, gas heaters are often cheaper to buy and install. However, propane gas is 50% more costly per kWh than electricity. Gas heaters are more inefficient so tend to cost about 10 times as much as electric units for a similar level of heat.

If you plan to use your patio heater only infrequently, a gas-powered outdoor heater can sometimes be a more economical solution than a mains-powered heater.

All about the atmosphere

Gas units provide a great deal of warmth and comfort. They are often a more visually striking heat source than infrared or electric heating. Whether you love staying outside in the evening with family or you are planning a big outdoor event, creating the right mood is always important. The flickering flames of a gas patio heater are arguably a more atmospheric sight to than artificial glare.

Quality materials and construction

Our gas patio heaters are manufactured using 304 Marine Grade Stainless Steel providing superb outdoor weather and corrosion protection. They include a hose and propane clip on UK standard regulator and anti-tilt safety mechanism. Its classic design and premium build quality complement the impressive heat output at a highly competitive price point.

Added character

There’s no doubt about it, our gas heaters are a stylish bunch. Without the garish orange glare that some less sophisticated infrared heaters produce, these models provide a romantic and atmospheric alternative.

A popular choice for high-end restaurants, bars and urban food markets. They are stylish enough for even the most discerning patrons to bask beneath, and they provide a contemporary focal point for your space.

Tip-top safety

Nothing is more important than enjoying your heater in a safe, controlled way. So, the safety features of our technology are our top priority.

All our outdoor gas heaters feature a protective mesh or flame guard as standard. For an enhanced level of safety, look for models with integrated anti-tilt mechanisms. A good example is the Athena Plus+ Stainless Steel Gas Heater, providing perfect peace of mind while you stay cosy.
