Keep warm outdoors

It doesn’t matter what time of year it is or what country you live in, there’s a good chance that you’ll need a gazebo heater at the ready.

If you’re in the U.K, then like me, you’ll be very aware of this.

There are lots of different brands and methods in which each type of heater is powered, so we’ve chosen 5 different heaters to review and we’re pretty sure at least 1 or 2 of them should be perfect for keeping you warm outside.

Some of these heaters will be suitable for inside your gazebo and others will be better placed on your patio whilst you sit away from your outdoor canopy.

Whichever type of gazebo heater you buy please be sensibly with how you use it and keep away from materials that can ignite.

Firefly Electric Energy Efficient Patio Heater (set of 2)

Firefly Freestanding Electric heaters that can keep you and your friends warm outdoors

Click Image to view on Amazon

This set of 2 firefly electric patio heaters are great for those chilly evenings

They come with 3 heat settings so you’re able to keep a comfortable temperature and reduce the energy costs when it’s not needed as much.

They don’t cost too much to run, to be honest, around 10p per hour, which is quite surprising for an electric heater.

Being IPX4 approved means these are also suitable for indoor use so when summer is over you can make use of them in other ways, perhaps you want to heat your garage whilst you’re in there?

You can easily adjust the height dependant on your preference but it ranges from 5ft 8¾in – 6ft 10¾in high.

The heating lamp can be angled to your preference as it pivots on a 45-degree angle so you’re able to aim it exactly where you want it.

Pros and cons

PROS:
  • Low energy cost
  • 3 output settings
  • Stainless steel frame
  • Great value
  • Can also be used indoors
  • Adjustable height

CONS:
  • Takes a few minutes to warm up

Outsunny hanging heater (electric)

Click Image to view on Amazon

Outsunny offer up this fancy looking ceiling heater and boy does it kick out some heat as well.

With two heat settings, you can keep the temperature under reasonable control dependant on your liking.

It’s a bit of hassle to install a hanging heater but that’s expected with the style.

It has chains attached that allow for the easy setup.

Outsunny have also added hooks so you can easily adjust the height once you’ve got it hung up so you don’t have to redo everything.

There is a light built into this outdoor heater but, to be honest, it isn’t that bright, our phone light was better…

With a splash-proof rating of IP24, you’ll have peace of mind when it’s under your canopy as it’s fine against splashed.

Don’t however leave it exposed to rain or large amounts of water as it’s not protected against that.

Pros and cons

PROS:
  • 2 heat settings
  • Easy to adjust
  • Takes up no floor space
  • Can also be used indoors
  • Adjustable height
  • Protective Mesh

CONS:
  • Built in light is quite dim

Garden Glow Outdoor Gas Heater with Flame Showing

This Garden Glow gas flame heater will be a real focal point when it starts to get chilly but most importantly, dark.

All guests will be in awe of the beautiful flames that this produces, it gives a really relaxing and warm feel to the environment.

It really encapsulates your guests into the evening.

The variable temperature controls mean it has the potential to kick out a huge 15,000 watts. I doubt you’ll ever need to crank it up that high unless you’re looking to heat a large area.

It runs on either butane or propane gas which is easily picked up from many stores such as Homebase or B&Q.

If you plan on getting it from B&Q then you will need to head over to the customer service desk as you cannot pick it up from off the shelf.

As it’s gas-fuelled, there are no annoying wires lying around anywhere.

Another advantage this brings is the versatility, you move it around with little effort due to the two wheels it has towards the backside.

With a little force, you can tilt it onto the wheels and easily transport it to your desired location.

Once you’ve finished with the heater, you can purchase a cover to store it away for the wet months.

Obviously you must remember to let it cool before you start covering it with anything!

Pros and cons

PROS:
  • Variable heat
  • Mesmerising flames
  • Huge heat output
  • Available in square design
  • No trailing wires
  • Quick to heat

CONS:
  • Quite pricey
  • Requires building

La Hacienda Ochiba Fire Pit & Log Burner for Patio Area

Log burner to keep you warm outdoors

Click Image to view on Amazon

If you’re after an authentic design then this is what you’re looking for.

The design of this is just awesome, I think a lot of the inspiration for it came from the middle east, its perfect for summer evenings.

It’s naturally rusted and is a great focal point for any garden and evenings.

Once you get the logs burning, this can really kick out some heat and it will keep all your guests warm.

It features a large space for you to stack your logs under the fire bowl. It shows how much effort they actually put into the design.

Something we’d recommend is the Lekto briquettes, these are very slow burning and last around 8 hours per brick.

On top of that, they are brick-shaped so they are perfect for stacking in the provided space.

If you’re after a more traditional log to burn then we’d recommend this hardwood firewood.

Pros and cons

PROS:
  • Rustic design
  • Space for storage
  • Good heat output
  • Great centre piece
  • No wires
  • Laser cut flame pattern

CONS:
  • Takes a while to heat
  • Quite heavy

Harbour Houseware Cast Iron Fire Pit Camping Bowl

Cast Iron fire pit

Click Image to view on Amazon

An awesome cast iron burner, it sits well with many garden styles.

The design is a classic bowl shape which makes it easy to add more wood to your fire.

It’s engineered in a way that improves the heat radiation and allows sufficient air in so your fuel burns longer and brighter.

Assembling the fire pit was pretty smooth and required minimal effort. In the box, you’re provided with the Allen key needed to tighten everything.

We found that it was very sturdy even when we tested it out over more uneven grounds due to the tripod design.

However, we recommend that you definitely try and find an even surface for it.

One thing we found annoying about it was the weight, at 15kg it’s a pretty hefty weight to move around but the handles definitely help.

In contrast, the weight also adds to the stability and prevents it from being accidentally knocked over which is a hugely important safety feature.

The side handles also seemed to cool much faster than the bowl so it means you have less time to wait before being able to transport it.

Pros and cons

PROS:
  • 3 different sizes
  • Simple, traditional design
  • Side handles
  • Suits any garden
  • Gather people around easily
  • Great focal point

CONS:
  • Quite heavy to lift
  • Rusts a little
