Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LasVegasKit Poorly Built
I have had two of these units for about 1 1/2 years. The lower post is connected to a plate with four small welds. With any amount of wind (or strong breeze) the top moves back and forth. The four little welds don't hold up and eventually break allowing your top and post to fall over. This should have been designed differently especially at a point of tension. I have had to install a stronger slip pipe inside the post and re-weld in several places. This was not the most expensive heater by any means and I believe you get what you pay for, but if you don't have the ability or desire to strengthen this unit and plan to leave it outside (even covered) when you have a breeze, I would pass on this unit or manufacturer.

This is our third Fire Sense 46,000 BTU propane heater and they work great. They always start up right away and put out a lot of heat. We have had other brands and always have problems with ignitors, but not with Fire Sense 46,000.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DebB More than Expected
Ordered this for an outdoor event in December. It said it was commercial grade but I wasn't sure what that meant. Now I know and it truly is much better built and sturdier than others I have seen. After ordering this one I saw many more for a much lower price but upon looking closer they were not as high BTU's and didn't say Commercial. Glad I went with the better product. The only down side was I was grateful that my husband was available to put it together. It took him more than an hour to assemble.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike and Susan Bought 1, & loved it so much, we ordered a second
We bought our first Firesense patio heater a few weeks ago, and loved it. Quite easy for 2 to put together, took us a half hour, very solid. Works really well, so warm and casts heat about 8-10' depending on if any breeze. Easy to move and store and looks great. We immediately ordered a second one and have just finished putting it together.

We purchased through Costco. Took about an hour to build, but was pretty straightforward. Very easy to use. Keeps our patio so warm! We used to have to go inside once the sun set, but now we can use our patio well into the evening. All our friends want one now.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by panker123 Excellent Product, good value
We have had this patio heater for more than a week. It works as advertised and makes our patio usable in cool Seattle evenings. Assembly was very easy and straight forward. The illustrations (photos) which were supposed to aid in assembly were not very useful but were really not needed. I am pleased with this purchase- good value and function.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jensie Stopped working
After a few months it will not light when cold. Lighting it with a lighter through the hole works but is really inconvenient. Once it is hot the igniter works fine. It gives really great heat but that is worth nothing if it won't turn on. Great build quality. Again pointless when it won't turn on. Really really disappointed.
