The type of outdoor heater you’ll need depends on the type of space you’re trying to heat and what level of warmth you require.
Low-glare heaters provide vigorous, instant heat at the flick of a switch and are known for their recognisable orange glow when in use. These ubiquitous heaters are commonly seen in a wide variety of locations – from pub beer gardens to home patios – because they’re so effective outdoors. If you need to heat an outdoor space that’s exposed to frequent gusts and breezes, a low-glare heater will always be the best choice.
Ultra-low glare heaters come in a variety of styles but they all have one thing in common: they produce a greatly reduced amount of light compared to standard halogen heaters. We recommend ultra-low glare heaters if you find the light from normal outdoor heaters too overpowering or distracting – a common issue for commercial spaces that seek to maintain a more relaxed atmosphere. Ultra-low glare patio heaters produce a gentler warmth that is more comfortable over longer periods, however, the sensation of this form of heat is more easily offset by wind-chill. To get the most out of an ultra-low glare heater, they should always be installed in a sheltered outdoor area.
No glare heaters are superb for discreet all-day heating. These patio heaters produce the gentlest kind of warmth – far infrared – which can be used for comfort heating round the clock. As this form of infrared heat is especially gentle, no glare heaters should only be used in well-sheltered outdoor spaces with minimal air movement to achieve the best results. As they produce no light when in operation, they can be an excellent option for commercial spaces that need a completely unobtrusive heating solution.
Electric patio heaters are unique in the outdoor heating world as they’re the only products that can be used indoors, however, you should bear in mind that they’re only suitable for very specific applications.
Low-glare and ultra-low glare patio heaters produce a vigorous warmth that can be useful for hard-to-heat areas of the home, such as garages and workshops. These areas typically have very low levels of insulation and can benefit from the instant spot heating provided by an infrared patio heater. Unlike convection heaters, they allow heat to be directed toward a specific area so you can keep workbenches warm without having to heat the entire volume of the room. While low-glare and ultra-low glare products emit a vigorous heat that can be used in garages and workshops, they should never be used in main areas of the home – such as living rooms and bedrooms – because the predominance of soft furnishings presents a potential fire hazard. Their strong heat is also unsuitable for long periods of use, so if you’re looking for effective primary home heating, you will be better served by the gentle warmth of infrared panels.
No glare patio heaters are best suited to indoor use as their gentle far infrared heat is designed to deliver warmth all day, every day. They’re excellent for heating large, lofty interiors, such as churches and barn conversions, which are difficult to heat using conventional means. Their radiant heat can be directed to high occupancy areas that need regular warmth and their completely light-free heating elements will ensure discreet heating at all times. Though no glare patio heaters are best for interior use, please always ensure that the correct clearance distances are observed when installing.
