What Is an Outdoor Patio Heater?
An outdoor patio heater is an appliance used by alfresco restaurants and food-service establishments to generate radiant heat so their customers can dine comfortably.
Patio dining is quite popular in places where there are tropical climates as well as in places where there are warmer months in a given year. However, there are times when there are unavoidable changes in temperature, especially when it suddenly becomes cold and chilly outdoors. A commercial patio heater will make sure that your diners stay warm and cozy even in the outdoors. In other words, restaurant patio heaters are an excellent way to fight the cold weather so your customers and patrons can enjoy their dining experience out on the patio.
Types of Restaurant Patio Heaters and How They Work
Restaurant patio heaters come in a wide variety of sizes and shapes. You can also choose either an outdoor gas patio heater or an electric outdoor patio heater, depending on what you require for your restaurant or food-service establishment.
So what's the difference between an outdoor gas patio heater and an electric outdoor patio heater? An outdoor gas patio heater can either run on liquefied petroleum gas, propane, or butane. An outdoor gas patio heater usually runs on propane tanks although most stationary heaters tend to run better on a natural gas line.
An outdoor gas patio heater directs the flames against a perforated metal screen. Heat is then radiated from th surface of the screen in a circular pattern around the commercial outdoor patio heater . A reflector atop the burner of the outdoor gas patio heater is designed to reflect heat that would be otherwise lost upward. An outdoor gas patio heater is typically taller than its electric counterpart and is designed to sit on the floor rather than placed on a table or mounted on a wall. It is common to see an outdoor gas patio heater that is fitted with small wheels to so that they are mobile and can be easily moved and deployed outside when the weather suddenly becomes cold and eventually stored safely inside the restaurant when there is warmer weather.
On the other hand, an outdoor electric patio heater is often smaller than an outdoor gas patio heater and usually emits infrared energy that helps heat the surrounding areas. An electric outdoor patio heater is sometimes considered more environmentally friendly compared to a gas heater.
