Extend Outdoor Season With An Infrared Radiant Patio Heater!
Denver-Boulder metro area homeowners enjoy beautiful weather throughout much of the year, but of course there are many stretches that are simply too cold to enjoy our outdoor living spaces, regardless of the time of day. That’s why we recommend infrared radiant patio heaters as a nice upgrade to consider adding to your home to help extend your ‘patio season’ and also increase outdoor comfort levels whenever desired.
There are a variety of outdoor infrared heaters and designs available, powered by natural gas, propane, or electricity. While portable units may make sense in certain short-term and changing applications, our team recommends permanently installed radiant heaters as a safer, reliable, long-term outdoor heating solution for the homeowners we serve. Infrared radiant heaters have been an established heating option in residential, commercial, and industrial applications for many years.
What is Infrared Radiant Heating?
Infrared radiant heating is much like when you walk outdoors on a sunny day and your body is heated directly by the sun shining on you. Warmth comes from the direct transmission of the sun’s radiant energy to virtually any surface that it’s shining on, including yourself. An infrared radiant heater works in a similar way – sans the bright light! It directly warms people and their clothes, as well as surfaces such as floors (or patios), furniture, appliances, and more. In the case of the floor, radiant heat is absorbed by the flooring material and as it warms up, some of that heat is then re-radiated upward to sitting and standing level.
In indoor applications such as garages, shops, studios, and storage areas, there are several advantages of infrared radiant heaters as opposed to employing systems such as unit heaters and wall heaters that recirculate heated air by means of a fan. Chief among them is comfort, along with the ability to more accurately focus the heating in the location where it’s most desired. Efficiency of fuel consumption, helping to keep control over your utility bills, is another bonus.
In outdoor uses, infrared radiant heaters can make all the difference in the world simply in terms of your ability to make use of an outdoor space when you never had that option before. There’s a variety of permanent, sturdy, radiant patio heaters made to withstand the widely varying weather conditions that we experience in the Colorado Front Range.
