If you have a patio or backyard, you might be missing it now that cooler weather has taken hold of much of the country. The good news is that you can still enjoy your backyard or patio, as long as you have a way to stay warm. One of the best ways to do that is with a patio heater. Propane patio heaters are commonly found at restaurants with outdoor seating, but they’re great options for home use, too. If you’re in the market for one, the good news is that many outdoor space heaters are on sale right now on Amazon. You can take discounts of up to $100 on already well-priced outdoor heaters.
A few features to look for when shopping for a propane space heater include an adjustment knob for changing the heat and a design that makes it easy to change the canisters. Most outdoor heaters use 20-pound propane canisters, which are generally not included with the heater. Safety is also an important feature; the narrow heaters on this list feature auto-shutoff in the event that the heaters tip over. Some heaters also include wheels to more easily move them around.
We’ve rounded up a few on-sale picks for outdoor space heaters and patio heaters, including picks from Sunjoy and Amazon Basics.
