Why use a hanging patio heater?

You’ve already read about the 5 best hanging patio heaters 2021 but why use a hanging patio heater?

Hanging patio heaters are perfect for providing that extra bit of heat, needed to keep you warm on those chilly summers or winter nights. Not only are they great for hanging from pergolas and gazebos but many can also be used in conservatories and other permanent structures.

They are a number of other benefits to owning a hanging patio heater, some of which we’ve listed below.

Warmth on the move

The great thing about hanging patio heaters is that there are incredibly versatile. Although many people simply leave them in one place, constantly wired up, they can very easily be disconnected and moved inside or to another location.

Most handing patio heaters are held up via a very simple chain and hook method. This allows you to simply unhook it and move it within a few minutes.

Attractive designs and lighting

Hanging patio heaters come in a variety of modern and attractive designs that blend naturally into their surroundings. Not only that, most handing patio heaters operate as both a source of heat and a source of light, so you can continue to entertain your guests well into the night.

Space saving and safety

Floor standing patio heaters’ main drawback is the fact that they take up valuable floor space. With a hanging patio heater, you are not only left with more space on the ground but you also don’t have any cables lying on the floor.

This is especially helpful when you have children. Although most gas patio heaters have safety cut-offs switches, the last thing you want is for it to get knocked over with children running around the place. Hanging patio heaters are obviously out of the way of little ones which not only saves space but is also mush safer.

You can use them inside

Unlike gas patio heaters the majority of hanging patio heaters can be used inside because they do not produce any flames or fumes.

If you plan on using a hanging patio heater inside please make sure that you check out the specifications before you buy. Most require a certain amount of space above, below, and around the heater for safety.

How quickly does a hanging electric patio heater warm up?

Hanging patio heaters use electricity as a power source and therefore unlike traditional gas patio heaters produce heat instantly. Simply turn it on and the heat will start meaning you’ll never feel cold for more than a second.

The other benefit of hanging patio heaters is that most are infrared. Infrared patio heaters work by using infrared waves to warm objects and people within the range of the heater. Therefore unlike traditional heaters, they do not just heat the surrounding air which can of course be blown away in cooler weather.
