For those of us who spend every moment possible outdoors, having an outdoor propane patio heater is a true blessing. An outdoor patio heater means that you can start spending time outdoors earlier in the spring, and very late into the fall, entertaining your guests on your patio or deck. In some climates, owning an outdoor propane tabletop or freestanding heater allows you to eat outside the entire year round.
There is an array of excellent patio heaters to choose from that emit a great deal of heat, certainly enough for a picnic table full of delicious food for your family and friends. The biggest choice when looking at propane patio heaters is to decide on the size of the heater, and whether you would like to have it stand on its own, or sit on top of a table. Personally I like the freestanding heaters the best. I think that they spread more heat, look better on your deck, and give you the most room to work with for a party or event.
