Beat the chill on cooler nights with these backyard heaters
Now the warmer months are a thing of the past and winter is upon us, the cold can quickly bring an enjoyable evening outdoors to a grinding halt.
So, how can you guarantee that your outdoor entertaining space is welcoming in all kinds of weather without having to hand out rugs and uggs to your guests?
Easy, just install outdoor heating.
There are a multitude of choices available to keep you cosy.
Every outdoor heating solution will use fuel or energy of one sort or another.
There are three main options when it comes to the energy source.
You can choose gas from a bottle or mains, electricity or traditional solid fuels such as wood or briquettes.
The advantage of gas and electric is that you can flick a switch and have instant heat without any fuss, while solid fuel requires a bit of effort to get going and the heat can be inconsistent.
But let’s face it, a marshmallow toasted in the glow of an electric heater is just not quite right.
