Ready to start planning your next big event outdoors? If you’re anything like us, you are always rushing to fit in all those last barbeques, park picnics, and family outings as summer comes to an end. If you are feeling the crunch and don’t want the party to stop, it’s time to consider ways to make your patio comfortable even when the weather turns dark and chilly. Adding extra lighting is going to add to the ambiance as the sun sets earlier and earlier, and serving delicious hot food and drinks is going to keep your guests coming back for more. But if you are hoping to keep everyone comfortable around the table, it may also be time to consider a tabletop patio heater for additional warmth and comfort.
Unlike big, free-standing patio heaters, your new tabletop patio heater doesn’t have to be hotter than the sun. Since you will often be placing it on the table where you are gathered to eat, it’s a good idea to get a heater that is designed for comfortable low heat. It’s essential that it offer three hundred and sixty degree heating, of course, to make sure that no one be left out in the cold! But about eleven thousand BTUs of heat should be plenty to make sure that your family is warm but not overheating while they sit and enjoy the cooler weather together. While shopping for your new tabletop heater, it’s also a great idea to look for one with temperature settings so that you can adjust your heat output based on the weather and how chilly everyone is feeling.
A tabletop heater is an investment that you are going to be able to use in so many different situations throughout cold fall and winter months, so it’s worth getting one now! The best heaters are going to have safety features like auto off for tipping and flameout, and also be very easy to ignite so that you are always confident when you’re using it. Looking for something that is lightweight and portable is also a great idea for anyone that wants to travel with it and be able to use it wherever you go. Whether you are anticipating cookouts, picnics at the park, camping trips, or even outdoor sporting events this winter, make sure that you can bring along the portable heat that is going to make the experience more comfortable and fun for everyone.
