Outdoor Heaters: Enjoy the Outdoors All Year Round

As Victorians, we all know that warm weather is never guaranteed. 

But that doesn’t mean you should have to cancel your outdoor plans in the colder months. 

Instead of retreating indoors during the winter months, cancelling your backyard barbeque or reservation for an alfresco area of a restaurant because of an unforeseen cold snap, why not make the most of your space in all weather with an outdoor heater? 


Which Heater Will Work For Me?

While there are a range of options out there, when it comes to outdoor heaters we recommend going with bar radiant heaters. 

Here are the 3 main reasons they top our list:

  • Efficiency 
  • Safety
  • Aesthetic


Radiant style heaters work by transferring heat directly to objects through infra-red waves. This means you’re not wasting electricity by simply heating up the surrounding air and you ensure that the objects (such as people) are heated as required. 

This direct transference of heat also means they are a great choice for windy or exposed locations, ie. if you are near the ocean.

Radiant bar heaters are especially effective if you are trying to heat a relatively enclosed space such as a porch or an outdoor kitchen area. 

They also provide instant heat at the touch of a button so you are not left shivering while waiting for your heater to warm up and do its job.


We’ve all had that moment of fear when someone gets too close to the outdoor heating, whether it is a plug in portable electric heater, a portable gas heater (dangerous) or fire pits (even more dangerous). 

With radiant bar heaters this risk is eliminated. 

They are professionally installed on ceilings or at the top of a wall so they are out of reach and cannot be haphazardly shifted around therefore making them a great choice if you have children of like having your friends and family over for an outdoor gathering. 

As they must be installed by a professional electrician they are also required to meet all local fire regulations. 


Bar radiant heaters are not only the safest form of outdoor heating, but they also provide warmth with an elegant look.

There is a large range of outdoor heaters that can create the best look for your outdoor space. This one speaks for itself…
