Although summertime is waning, there’s a good chance you’re not willing to concede spending any less time on your patio, especially if you just recently had it done. If you’re someone who likes to hang out on your patio year-round, you should probably consider getting a patio heater. Not only are they great for the fall/early winter months, but they can also add some decorative flair to your patio area. There are a few different types of patio heaters to choose from, but do not fret, we’re here to help. Let’s go through some of the best patio heater options.

Best Standing Patio Heater

Best Fire Pit Heater

A fire pit can do wonders — both in terms of decoration and heating — for any patio area. The Outland Living Series 401 Brown 44-Inch Outdoor Propane Gas Fire Pit Table presents itself as a versatile, stylish option for any patio owner. If you’re someone who likes to sit around a fire on a cool summer night, this is a great choice. It’s durable, very low-maintenance, and contains an easy-to-use push-button spark ignition system with 35,000 BTUs of power for a controlled, smoke-free flame.

In terms of pure style and sleekness, this fire pit remains a notch above the rest.

Best Fire Pit Heater for Value

Now if you’re looking for a basic fire pit style heater that’s a little less expensive, the Endless Summer GAD15258SP LP Gas Outdoor Fire Table is a great place to start. First off, despite its moderate price tag and relatively small size (it’s only around 31″ x 31″), this stylish tabletop heater is powerful, with a 50,000 BTU stainless steel burner and integrated ignition. It also includes a full protective cover and table insert for when you’re not planning on making a fire, and brown fire glass to help make your fire glisten a little extra in the night sky.
