amazonbasics garden heaterIdeal for when the evenings turn chilly, this AmazonBasics outdoor heater has a heat output of 13.5 kW. Efficient, it ensures at the same time that it is easy to use, in particular thanks to the presence of a piezoelectric ignition: operating on gas, it is enough to press a button to turn it on! It also poses no risk in the event of tipping, since a safety valve stops it automatically. (A water tank located in the base also allows ballasting). Made of steel and aluminum, it weighs 18 kg but the wheels allow it to be moved easily. And if here you opt for an industrial look, it is nevertheless available in several different colors and styles (bahamas blue, stainless steel finish, wicker cladding, etc.) to adapt perfectly to the style of the terrace on which it will be installed. . !

My opinion : AmazonBasics is a range of effective and not too expensive products that I really appreciate. And that’s still the case with this patio heater which has absolutely everything you would expect from such a device. Even the hose and regulator are included, which is rarely the case with gas appliances. Although it is delivered as a kit, its assembly is quite simple, the instructions are clear and everything is provided, even the smallest screws. And once it starts, it heats up nice and fast, and of course you can adjust that heat with a handy little thermostat. Its design is also very successful, which does not spoil anything! It is clearly my favorite model, it is also offered at an affordable price, and that is why I recommend it without hesitation!

proweltek patio heaterThanks to its pyramid-shaped design, this outdoor heater allows you to enjoy a beautiful flame at the same time. Like a brazier, it can heat up while creating a warm atmosphere! Equipped with a maximum power of 14 kW, the intensity of this flame is adjustable and its ignition is easy and quick thanks to an electronic system. Whatever the configuration chosen, the heat distribution is perfectly homogeneous and it is also able to cover a surface up to 25 m², in particular thanks to its aluminum reflector. The perfectly stable and very resistant structure allows this Proweltek not to fear the wind, just like the flame, which is also protected by a glass tube (which also guarantees the safety of users). Powered by gas, it comes with its hose and regulator, but also with a protective cover!

My opinion : If you prefer the aesthetics of parasols with pyramid heating, then this Proweltek model is the one I recommend. Although its price is a bit high, it has many advantages. I particularly appreciated its impressive power, which makes it possible to heat an entire terrace without worry, and even faster when it is protected by a gazebo or a pergola. The setting between 5 and 14 kW even makes it possible to adapt it to the number of people around and not to get too hot. For this price, the fact that the brand delivers it with its protective case is also interesting, especially since it is of good quality. As for the assembly, it takes a bit of time, but the effort is worth it!

favex patio heaterOutdoor heating, nothing better to enjoy the terrace, the veranda or even the garden at any time of the year! This patio heater also offers 3 heating powers (900 W / 1200 W / 2100 W) to adapt to both the number of people and the place to be heated. Effective up to 8 m² thanks to its aluminum reflector, it is even possible to program its operating time with a timer from 30 to 90 minutes. Although it is electric, it knows how to remain economical while consuming little! It is also easier to control as it comes with a small remote. Made of brushed stainless steel, it is obviously designed to be able to stay outdoors. It is not afraid of water, nor falls since it turns off automatically. Although it has no wheels, it weighs only 15 kg, which makes it quite easy to move around!

My opinion : In the category of electric patio heaters, it is this Favex that I appreciate the most! This is due to many small details such as the remote control that is provided, the fact that the heat released is adjustable or the possibility of stopping it automatically after a certain time. It might not look like much on paper, but in use, that’s what makes it even better. You put it on your terrace, you turn it on, you program it for 90 minutes, then you can quietly have an aperitif with friends or have a romantic dinner! With its metal frame, it is also quite stylish, and it is true that it is quite easy to move despite its weight. Practical and safe, it’s definitely my favorite model!

fargau patio heaterBecause a patio heater can also be a design and decorative accessory! Fargau relies above all on the aesthetics of these appliances to differentiate them from others: thanks to their elegance, they can find their place just as well on a restaurant terrace as on a private terrace. However, performance is not relegated to the background. Capable of heating up to a power of 2100 W and covering an area equivalent to 8 m², this model also has 3 different heating powers (900 W / 1800 W / 2100 W). If it can be turned on manually, it also comes with a remote control that allows you to control all of its functions. With its autonomy of 5000 hours, it can finally last several seasons, even long years!

My opinion : This Fargau is the most beautiful heating parasol that I have ever had the opportunity to find! It is clear that a lot of work has been done on the design and that it is successful: it simply looks like a pretty floor lamp, with the heating elements concealed as much as possible so that they do not stand out too much and offering a very nice decorative. To note. It is not in vain that the brand offers it to professionals, but even being particular it has charm. While you’re likely to choose it primarily for looks, rest assured that it performs great too. It stays warm, its heat is adjustable and it even has a safety feature that shuts it down if it tips over. Price level, it’s almost high-end, but with this quality, it’s worth it!

tristar outdoor heaterThe Tristar is an outdoor heater committed to versatility. As a heating parasol, it can be installed in 2 different ways: either in the classic way, on its included foot adjustable between 180 cm and 200 cm in height, or directly hung on a wall. It is also very mobile as its 2m long cable allows it to be easily placed where you need it most. Regarding its operation, it also offers 3 temperature settings, at 650 W, 1300 W and 2000 W. Thanks to an IPX4 protection index, it is possible to use it even in humid spaces. As with any electrical device, safety is important, it should be noted that the anti-tilt protection allows it to stop automatically in the event of an accidental fall, even if it is very stable on its base!

My opinion : If you want a patio heater but don’t have a huge budget to spend on the purchase, you should consider this Tristar. At this price, it is clearly not as powerful as the other models in this selection and its design tends to make it unidirectional. While the others radiate and cover an area around him, this model tends to heat up only in front of him. But even with these minor flaws, it’s still interesting. With its 3 levels, it allows you to make the most of your terrace when it starts to get cold and when you are sitting on your garden furniture, you will fully appreciate its warmth. A good option as long as you’re not too picky!
