What’s the Right Fuel Choice?

We always recommend natural gas for your outdoor heating needs because it is reliable, consistent, and more affordable in the long run than electricity or propane. Natural gas is a simple, affordable way to bring some warmth to your patio, backyard, or other outdoor space.

There are lots of different options for heating your outdoor area with natural gas. Here are three different options for outdoor heating.


Patio Heaters

Standing patio heaters are a great, space-efficient way to heat any outdoor space. Patio heaters do not add a decorative or atmospheric element to your outdoor space, but they are dependable for heating and you can install several around your space to create a consistent heat throughout the whole area.


Fire Tables

Fire tables are both outdoor heating and a statement furniture piece. These elegant outdoor heating solutions are the most decorative option and come in a wide variety of styles to suit your style, from long, sleek tables with a narrow strip of flames to round models with a central fire that draws the eye.


Fire Pits

Fire pits provide a classic, cozy feel and a focal point for your outdoor guests to gather around. They make your backyard feel like your own personal camp with an instant bonfire. Fire pits are a great option if you are looking for a rustic feel and a heating option that also brings people together.
