I know that no one is ready for summer to be over, so lets fight it as long as we can by using outdoor standing propane heaters.
I am sure you have seen them at restaurants and events, but these are affordable enough to have on your own patio. You can extend the amount of time that you use your patio with these great standing heaters. When they are not in use, just put a cover on them or wheel them into the garage. They use propane which is easy to get these days. This is really the perfect solution to warming things up on a cool night.
Standing propane patio heaters produce more heat than electric or gas-fueled table models. The average standing propane heater is rated at 40,000 BTUs an hour at maximum setting, but some can produce 45,000 BTUs or more. A 40,000 BTU an hour patio heater can radiate heat over a circle about 18 to 20 feet in diameter. The heaters are usually about 6 or 7 feet tall, topped by domed cap that directs the heat downward in a 360-degree radius. The propane tank at the base is hidden, either by a skirt or by a metal base.
You can buy commercial units, but if you think you will use a patio heater about 26 hours a year or three hours a week for about two months of the year, then a residential patio heater should be perfect for you. It will last longer if you purchase a cover for it (about $40) and disassemble the heater between seasons to store indoors.
