People have been heating the outdoors since humans first learned how to create fire. Unfortunately, for many of us, our skills at heating our outdoor environment have not progressed much beyond those initial stages, with many people relying on firepits, chimeneas, or other free-standing fire containers as a source of heat. While everyone enjoys a good bonfire for their outdoor patio heating, these open fires are not the best way to heat your outdoor space. They present a burning hazard for children and adults, produce a large amount of smoke, require monitoring in order to prevent fires, and can make it difficult to start the fire and create the warmth. Even the fact that they produce smoke can be a nuisance; in order to enjoy the outdoors after dark, people smell smoky and may not be able to enjoy their outdoor living space without making plans to shower before going to bed. What that translates into is living space that is underutilized because it is a nuisance to heat.
Outdoor patio heating can be easy.

There are a number of outdoor heating options.
What many people do not realize is that there is a tremendous variety in outdoor heating options. You may choose to have a permanent gas fireplace installed, which retains the natural look of a fire, while sacrificing the smelly smoke and difficulties associated with starting a wood fire; opt for natural-gas fed patio heaters; choose infrared heating sources; or even consider installing vented heating systems in semi-enclosed outdoor living areas. There are a number of options, which can be combined to design the perfect system for your living space.
