What are the different types of outdoor heaters available in Australia?
There are many different types of outdoor heaters available in Australia, made from a variety of materials and powered by various sources. Some of the most popular types of outdoor heaters include:
Gas heaters: Gas heaters are a popular choice for outdoor heating, as they are relatively inexpensive to operate and can provide a good amount of heat. However, gas heaters can be noisy and can produce fumes, which can be a nuisance for some people.
Electric heaters: Electric heaters are another popular choice for outdoor heating, as they are relatively quiet and do not produce fumes. However, electric heaters can be more expensive to operate than gas heaters, and they may not provide as much heat.
Infrared heaters: Infrared heaters are a type of electric heater that heat objects directly, rather than the air around them. This makes them more efficient than other types of electric heaters, and they can provide a comfortable level of heat without making the air too hot.
Fire pits: Fire pits are a popular choice for outdoor heating, as they provide a warm and inviting atmosphere. However, fire pits can be dangerous if not used properly, and they can produce smoke and fumes, which can be a nuisance for some people.
Chimineas: Chimineas are similar to fire pits, but they have a chimney that helps to direct the smoke and fumes away from people. This makes them a safer option than fire pits, and they can provide a more pleasant atmosphere.
What should I consider when choosing an outdoor heater?
When choosing an outdoor heater, there are a few things you should consider, including:
The size of the area you need to heat: If you have a large outdoor area, you will need a heater that can provide enough heat to warm the entire area. If you have a small outdoor area, you can get away with a smaller heater.
The climate you live in: If you live in a cold climate, you will need a heater that can provide a lot of heat. If you live in a warm climate, you can get away with a heater that provides less heat.
Your budget: Outdoor heaters can range in price from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand dollars. It is important to set a budget before you start shopping.
Your personal preferences: Some people prefer gas heaters because they are more powerful. Others prefer electric heaters because they are quieter and easier to use.
