November 17th, 2021

Forum Lighting Blaze Floor Standing Patio Heater IP55 ZR-32300

A patio heater is a great addition to any outdoor space, especially in the colder seasons. Here at Superlec Direct, we stock a wide range of outdoor heaters, from standing patio heaters to wall mounted, and portable. We stock ATC and Forum Lighting heaters.

Are electric patio heaters environmentally friendly?

Electric patio heaters need to be plugged in; however, they are more energy efficient than gas heaters. Most patio heaters use either gas or electricity to generate heat. Electricity is by far cheaper and more eco-friendly as they produce up to 90% less C02 emissions than a gas patio heater. They are also less noisy and consume less energy which is one of the many great reasons to buy one.

Are electric patio heaters safe?

Electric patio heaters are very safe and far less likely than gas heaters to cause a fire, however they get very hot. It’s important to look for models with safety features such as trip protection and auto shutoff, for example our Forum Lighting Blaze Standing Patio Heater range.
