HOT TOPIC WITH THE RIGHT OUTDOOR HEATING IN PLACE YOU CAN KEEP THE CHILL AT BAY AND THE GOOD TIMES ROLLING Words JANE PARBURY PLAN IT L ove your alfresco entertaining zone? Then enjoy it year-round with the help of an outdoor heater or two! For regular use, think beyond solid fuel - gas and electric models offer reliability and instant, constant heat, with less cleaning and fewer emissions than wood-burning alternatives. Here's our rundown. Moored or mobile? Make your selection according to the area you wish to heat - is it out in the open or under cover? Bunnings national electrical buyer John Campbell explains, "Portable heaters offer flexibility and efficiency, especially in open areas, while fixed heaters might be more suitable for semi-enclosed spaces, due to their directional heat and stability." Bottled gas or plug-in electric portable versions come in many different styles and sizes, from the traditional 'mushroom' to sleek shapes ideal for a contemporary setting. Fixed models can be plumbed into your home's natural gas supply or hardwired, both needing the services of a licensed installer, but they're great for a long-term option in a covered space you use regularly. They can be mounted high on the wall or from the ceiling for a neat, unobtrusive look, doing away with potential trip hazards and also helping to free up floor space - handy for small areas. Warming ways Outdoor heaters work by either directing warmth to objects they're aimed at (radiant) or warming the air around them (convection). Radiant heaters offer less heat loss, making them more energy-efficient, says John. To calculate your needs, start by measuring your space to determine the size of the area you want to warm, says the team at Arlec. Next, "Look for the heating capacity. The higher the British Thermal Unit (BTU) rating, the larger the area your unit can effectively heat." Safety features, such as tip-over switches, overheating protection and flame-failure devices, are very important.
