Garden Sun Outdoor Propane Patio Heater
Freestanding propane patio heater
Unusual in this price range, this 41,000-BTU per hour freestanding patio heater has a 31.9-inch reflector, about as big as those used on many commercial-level patio heaters that cost much more. This helps spread the warmth more evenly to a wider circle. The Garden Sun heater weighs 46 pounds, comes with a wheel kit, and can accommodate either a 20- or 30-pound propane tank. The handful of owner-reviews we found say it's easy to assemble and works fine, but at this price level, quality control may present an occasional problem. The steel base comes in a choice of finishes including stainless steel and copper. A similar model is all stainless steel (*est. $280).
