5 Ways To Warm Up Your Backyard

Getting cooler outside at night? Invest in a heating device that will keep your family and guests warm and comfortable. Don’t forget to have a fire extinguisher nearby. Here are our top 5 choices:

1. Infrared Heating

Electric heaters are appliances that convert electrical energy into heat. They can come in various forms for indoor and outdoor use, such as hanging, built into walls or ground-standing. Although they get you warm, they may give you a higher electricity bill.


2. Wood Fireplace or combined Pizza Oven

A fireplace is a practical feature that can serve many purposes besides keeping you warm, such as heating up and cooking food and water. The fireplace could also incorporate a pizza oven.


3. Wood Firepit (in-ground or free-standing)

A fire pit (or also known as a fire hole) can vary from a traditional hole dug into the ground to an elaborate pre-made gas burning structure that’s made out of metal, stone or brick.


4. Portable Fire

Portable fire bowls and fire pits are easy to transfer around. If you have limited backyard space or have a balcony, a small portable fire bowl will do wonders to keep you warm with no extra hassle.


5. Gas Heater

Gas heaters heat a space by burning natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas, propane or butane. They can be portable or structural fireplaces with real flame effects.
