Outdoor heating is essential for alfresco living in the winter months. There are various outdoor heating appliances available including gas patio heaters, chimineas, fire pits and heatstrip heaters.

Things you need to consider when making the best heating choice for your area are: What are the dimensions? What type of roof structure do you have, if any? Is it enclosed or completely open? How much space do you have to store the heater/fire pit?

Paul Tomolowicz from Outdoor Heating says the most popular heaters at the moment are the Electric Radiating Heating (ERH) strip heaters. “They are slim line and quite long in length so provide really good performance and coverage. They are the most unobtrusive outdoor heaters currently available and are engineered and developed in Austria.”

This winter you don’t have to abandon the outdoors. By installing some heating you can continue to enjoy your garden without having to compromise on comfort.
