What’s in a BTU?
Outdoor heater power is typically measured in BTUs and understanding BTUs, or British Thermal Units, will also help you choose the best outdoor heater for your home or business. BTUs refer to the amount of energy required to heat a pound of water by one-degree Fahrenheit. The higher the number of BTUs produced, the greater the heat output will be. For example, Patio heaters can produce anywhere from 10,000 to over 30,000 BTUs.
Tip: For a deck or patio up to 450 sq. ft., use heater that produces 10,000 BTUs. Heaters that produce more than 10,000 BTUs can powerfully warm up spaces up to 1,200 sq. ft.
Safety first – place outdoor heaters on stable ground or a table and always in the center of the space to best heat the area.
The Essentials of Outdoor Heating
After choosing your new outdoor heating unit, add the finishing touch with the right parts and accessories. To protect your heater from harsh weather or wind damage, grab a few patio heater covers and fire pit covers. For gas patio heaters, you’ll want to have firewood, starters and firewood racks on hand for easy organization. Add a trendy appeal to your fire pit or outdoor fireplace with decorative fire glass or lava rocks.
