Electric Infrared heating is a great way to heat your outdoor patio. Electric heaters can be flush mounted and integrated into the patio design to enhance your covered structure. These heaters range from 2000 to 6000 Watts to fit any space. Sizing is determined by ceiling height and square footage of coverage. Controls are available in many variations. They can even be controlled with your Home Management Controls such as Lutron and Crestron. They most economical control is the duplex switch option which will give you a Hi/Lo/Off capabilities. By clicking on the Infratech logo on the page here, you can look at the many options available… including colors and controls. As part of our Integrated Ducted JetStream Outdoor Cooling system, we can control the climate of your outdoor space all year round.
Gas heaters are always an option for all of your outdoor spaces. Sizes range from 25,000 to 250,000 BTU’s. We have options for many different manufacturers and models. With gas heaters, clearance to combustibles is a limiting factor in regards to design and layout. Gas heaters can not be flush mounted into ceiling due to clearance to combustibles. Ceiling height is a major factor in figuring which heater works best for the space. Most heaters are two stage, usually 100% and somewhere around 70% of the BTU rating and are controlled with a low voltage switch.
