Portable Patio Heaters are in general, the easiest ones to install. These heaters are available in both Liquid Propane and Natural Gas options and offer the ultimate flexibility in location. Whether you're hosting a backyard party or simply relaxing on the patio, portable heaters are the perfect solution to move the party anywhere in your yard.

While a Liquid Propane Patio Heater doesn't require any gas or electric lines, it can be more expensive to operate due to the cost of propane tanks. However, their ease of use and versatility make them an excellent investment for any outdoor activity. With efficient heat output and portability, portable patio heaters are a must-have accessory for any outdoor enthusiast looking for comfort and convenience.

1. Are propane heaters safe indoors?

Freestanding propane heaters, which are mostly portable, are not safe indoors and can only be placed anywhere outdoors. However, some permanently mounted propane heaters may be safe for indoor use, depending on the model.

2. How do propane heaters work?

Most propane heaters are fuelled by a liquid propane tank. Tall, round propane heaters have an emitter on top that emits heat, then its reflector spreads heat to its coverage area. A wall/ceiling-mounted infrared propane heater has a burner that creates radiant energy that is quickly and efficiently absorbed by solid objects.
