Can You Put A Patio Heater Under A Gazebo?


During the chilly weather in the UK, Do you still use your gazebo? and if so, are you wondering if it’s safe to put a patio heater under your gazebo? Then yes, you can. But before you choose a patio heater, make sure it is not an enclosed structure.

You’ll need your gazebo to be as open as a patio however if you have the extra money, invest in an indoor or outdoor heater since it’s safer to use in an enclosed area.

Also, an electrical heater is cheaper and works best under the small area a gazebo provides. A paraffin heater takes up far too much space than an electrical heater.

Deciding on a patio heater depends on a few factors, how big are your gazebo and your budget. Narrowing down the search will make finding the perfect heater easy.

Also, how windy is the area you live in? This will determine the position of your patio heater in the gazebo. But, before you can buy a heater, you should understand how a patio heater works. Patio heaters warm the area exactly as the sun heats the earth.

Rather than heating the air, the infrared waves heat the objects it’s in contact with. This heating system works best outdoors because it doesn’t rely on air movement to warm up your gazebo.

I use the Sundate 2000 remote electric heater because it’s easy to mount on my gazebo roof, not in the children’s reach, low maintenance, and is not affected by the wind.

Another type of electric heaters are freestanding and Table-tops: these are portable and easy to use but they only heat the immediate area around them, usually about 8-10 feet. This is perfect for a gazebo, and here’s one I recommend to use.
