Patio heaters are becoming more and more popular. They look visually significant and often surprise by an adequate heating power. Within a short time, a room or an environment can be heated up. This is, for example, a unique advantage at a party in the garden.
How hot are patio heaters?
The temperature of the heating patio depends on the model, the performance, and the environmental conditions. A high-quality radiant heater can heat up to temperatures between 120 and 180 ° C outdoors. The heating tube of a heated patio can even reach temperatures of up to 900 ° C. It is, therefore, all the more critical that a heated patio is always kept in view. For your safety, it makes sense to ensure a safe distance of one to two meters to all combustible materials.
How much kW does a heating patio have to have?
If a patio heater is used for private purposes, then it should have a capacity of at least 12 kW. This optimally warms the environment. All models with this performance are very well suited for a terrace, for example. If a heated patio is used in the commercial sector, for instance, in marquees, beer gardens, or at events, then it should be at least 14 kW. Of course, some models offer only about the power of 800 watts. It should be noted that these devices are only suitable for a small area.

Many mushrooms can heat only a small room, while others can efficiently heat rooms with a size of 125 m². Many wild mushrooms for private use provide a power of 5 to 2 kW. Gastronomy devices are generally much more powerful. The desired performance can be adjusted continuously or with the help of a switch. Often butane or propane is used as the gas. A gas bottle can last up to 50
