Make winter feel like summer with Charmglow Patio Heaters
If you’re the kind of person who loves the outdoors and wants to use their patio for entertaining all year round, then it’s time you looked at getting an outdoor patio heater. Outdoor patio heaters are built to withstand the fall and winter elements with some brands providing better value for money than others. Charmglow patio heaters are well regarded as one of the best entry level brands and provides the best value for money in terms of their durability and heating outputs.
Outdoor heaters come in numerous styles and models with the average unit being just over 7 feet and easy to assemble. The average heater can raise the outdoor temperature 10-25 degrees depending on the size of the location in which it’s placed and how well it’s insulated. For those with large or spacious patios, it is suggested that you purchase multiple units to avoid “cold spots” which encourage multiple people to crowd too close to the heater. Having multiple patio heaters ensures that each guest is warm and comfortable when entertaining outdoors and helps prevent any accidents which may occur as a result of a large group of people crowding around a butane tank/natural gas source.
Entry level Charmglow patio heaters are currently being sold for $120 by The Home Depot, with high end units costing anywhere from $400-$600. The average heater is powered by natural gas and comes connected to a disposable 2 pound tank. Each model has an inbuilt thermostat which can be controlled via remote and programmed depending on time. For example, you will be able to program the patio heater to increase its temperature at a certain time and then decrease the temperature after a specified period. Parts are easily accessible from a number of retailers both on the internet and offline with the most common spare part needed costing just $3.95.
The average unit is capable of a maximum of 11,000 BTU of heating power per hour. Heat is distributed via a dome at the top of the unit ensuring a 360 degree area of effect. Most units are capable of heating the area up to a distance of 8-10 feet in circular diameter and thus you may need multiple units to heat a significant area of space.
How are Charmglow Patio Heaters Made?
High end Charmglow patio heaters are powered using infra-red technology coupled with traditional propane. It’s been documented that these units are capable of omitting up to 50,000 BTU per hour of heating power. Unlike the average unit, these patio heaters are capable of heating the area around them up to a maximum distance of 20 feet. However such power demands a greater fuel source and thus the required propane to run one of these units is around a 20 pound tank.
Most Charmglow heaters are made with high quality bonded stainless steel and are made to withstand the elements. The heating source is protected either via a metal grill or perspex window which is located at the top of the heater on the underside of the heating dome. This ensures children are unable to touch the heating source and potentially burn themselves.
Patio heaters are a cheap, environmentally friendly way to keep your outside entertaining areas warm this winter. Each model features an inbuilt thermostat which can be controlled via remote and any parts needed are easy to source and cheap. Whatever type of heater you’re in the market for there are Charmglow Patio Heaters made to suit your needs.
