Your beautiful deck provided you with hours of pleasure over the warm summer months. It was a place to sit with your first cup of coffee, watching the sun rise over the trees. It was a place for family gatherings and cookouts. It was a calm retreat in the evenings, glass of wine in hand, contemplating the events of the day.
But now that cooler weather has arrived, you don't need to forgo the beauty and serenity of your deck. With an outdoor heater, you can enjoy your morning cup of coffee while watching the leaves change. The family can gather to roast marshmallows and make s'mores. Then, when everyone else is tucked safely in bed, you can sit quietly and enjoy gazing and the moon and the stars on a crisp fall evening. Choose the heater that fits your deck, and you can enjoy the outdoors year-round.
Fire pits are a stylish option for outdoor heaters. They come in a variety of shapes, sizes and finishes to suit any décor. From a fire pit that resembles a witch's cauldron to a sophisticated slate top table, these outdoor heaters will enable you extend your time spent in your outdoor living space. A wood-burning fire pit delights the senses. The tang of wood smoke creates a festive atmosphere. The glowing flames are perfect for roasting hot dogs.
Wood-burning fire pits have the added advantage of portability. You can move the fire pit around to suit your guests or just your own whims. If you prefer, you can choose a propane fire pit. Most propane fire pits feature lava rocks and ceramic logs to give the illusion of fire without the messy ashes. A 20-pound propane cylinder provides the fuel, but the extra weight does reduce the portability of the unit.
If you would prefer several smaller sources of heat distributed around your deck, torch-style outdoor heaters will be a better choice for you. These freestanding heaters are made of durable metals such as steel, bronze or copper. They are visually appealing, providing soft pools of light and heat throughout your outdoor living space. Sturdy base construction prevents these heaters from accidentally tipping over. A standard propane tank provides the fuel, and in this case, the extra weight adds to the stability of the unit. Practical yet pretty, torch-style outdoor heaters create an island atmosphere in your own backyard.
