5 Essential Features to Look For in a Good Portable Outdoor Heater

What features make a good portable outdoor heater? The reasons may surprise you. Outdoor heaters have been around for quite some time. Although outdoor heaters are most commonly associated with fancy space heaters (they do share some basic operational concepts), they have evolved significantly over the years due to technological advances. If you’re looking to purchase and install a portable outdoor heater, here are five crucial things to look for: 

Reputation of the Seller

You want to get the most out of your portable outdoor heater, just as you would from any other investment. This means that the unit must be capable of delivering the results that it has claimed it will provide. Because, after all, the idea is to spend more time outdoors doing the things you enjoy the most, rather than worrying about whether or not your heater is performing efficiently.

Ultimately, you should purchase from a company with a demonstrated track record of excellence and quality. Gas Outdoor Patio Heaters is a highly respected manufacturer of high-quality portable outdoor electric, propane, and space heaters. We have established ourselves as a trusted supplier of outstanding outdoor and indoor heating systems for the past 20 years. If you’re looking for a portable outdoor heater that will make you proud and won’t let you down when you’re entertaining friends and family, contact us today for a quote.

Energy Efficient

Because you want to spend as much time outdoors as possible, your portable outdoor heater should be energy efficient. This means providing a high level of service without adding to your energy bill. The best option is to use a portable propane outdoor heater.

Propane gas is significantly cheaper than conventional methods of energy generation. According to the United States Department of Energy, propane heating is less expensive than electric systems. As a result, outdoor propane heaters can be up to one-third less costly to operate over time to demonstrate our devotion to our clients, all of our gas and propane portable outdoor heaters come with a comprehensive warranty.

Safety Features

Some people associate portable outdoor heaters with space heaters. While there are similarities in the basic concepts of how they work, our propane and electric outdoor heaters have evolved significantly, especially regarding safety.

Our Propane and electric portable heaters have a remarkable safety record, due in large part to the stringent codes and regulations developed by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). In addition, all of our units have safety features built in to ensure that they do not spontaneously combust. Aside from the environmental benefits of using propane, the gas is nontoxic and creates few emissions.


Portable outdoor heaters are highly convenient. They can be carried or rolled from place to place. This makes it simple to place them exactly where you need them, allowing you to get the most out of your heating system. You can immediately transfer the portable heaters indoors if the weather becomes inclement, such as when it rains or hails. This is especially useful if you live in a region where the weather is unpredictable.


Gas Outdoor Patio Heaters has established a solid reputation as a dependable vendor and installer of high-quality outdoor heaters. Our products are subjected to extensive testing before they are made available to the public. To demonstrate our devotion to our clients, all of our gas and propane portable outdoor heaters come with a comprehensive warranty.
