Best Gas Patio Heaters of 2020
Stay Warm Year Round With Gas Patio Heaters
Gas patio heaters are your outdoor kitchen's champion against cold months and temperature downswings. Picking one means picking between mounted or freestanding designs. If you’re looking for a more permanent solution to outdoor heating, mounted gas heaters are your best bet: they burn hotter than electric heaters and save valuable floor space with wall or ceiling positioning. Freestanding gas heaters offer strong differences between natural gas and propane models. Freestanding natural gas heaters must be connected to a gas line, but they burn hotter and need no refills. Freestanding propane heaters are highly portable and don’t require installation — but they do require propane tank refills. When it comes to picking the best gas models available, our experts considered the following:
- Quality — No one wants to go cold because their heater didn’t stand the test of time, so we put a high priority on quality for this list. It’s better to buy a patio heater that’ll last for years than to get the cold shoulder from an inferior and unreliable product.
- Performance — As a general rule, gas patio heaters burn hotter than their electric counterparts. Even so, our experts carefully vetted the best gas patio heaters on the market — ensuring our picks are the hottest thing to hit patios since the classic 2 x 4.
- Features — We considered safety factors such as automatic re-ignition, safety pilot shutoff system, and oxygen depletion sensors when judging which gas patio heaters are the best. We know that while looks may be important, you also value safety when it comes to heating your outdoor space.
