Outdoor Propane Heater

Keeping your outdoor space warm with a outdoor propane heater.

If you are wanting to extend your outdoor enjoyment a little farther into the Fall or have cabin fever in the Spring, then a outdoor propane heater is just what you need.

There are two grades of outdoor heaters available, you have the residential and the commercial grade. Propane heaters are free standing with a height ranging from 81 to 95 inches tall.

Outdoor propane heaters put out heat in a 360 degree range and will raise the outdoor temperature about 10 to 20 degrees within a 18 to 20 foot area, maybe less on breezy days. Most residential heaters produce 40,000 BTUs, while commercial heaters have a BTU rating of 45,000.
