October is a conflicted month, with mild and sometimes even warm daytimes sandwiched between freezing cold mornings and evenings. Transitional weather like this doesn’t lend itself to comfortable outdoor gatherings and it’s this uncertain time of year that forces us indoors until the daffodils appear in the spring. While there’s something to be said for cuddling up inside, there’s equally something to be said for spending autumn evenings outdoors under the clear, starry night sky. To ensure you’re warm and toasty when the darkness descends, take a look at some of our finest outdoor heating solutions and make the most of your garden this autumn.
Garden heaters for unsheltered spaces
If your garden offers little shelter from the elements, a wall mounted outdoor heater is the ideal solution — providing instantaneous heat with the push of a button or the click of a remote control. Our bestselling electric garden heaters, the Ecostrad Sunglo and Ecostrad Thermaglo, are superb choices and promise to keep you warm and cosy despite the autumnal chills.
The Ecostrad Sunglo
Flaunting an attractive honeycomb grill and chic metallic finish, the Sunglo is an aesthetically pleasing halogen heater: the perfect choice for contemporary gardens or outdoor spaces that demand a certain style. Heating areas up to 16m², this outdoor heater uses invigorating near infrared heat to quickly heat anything in its path. Using the remote, simply point and press to enjoy either half or full power heat depending on the situation. Simple, effective, and stylish, this garden heater is the perfect choice if you need basic outdoor heating that feels as good as it looks.
The Ecostrad Thermaglo
If you prefer your heating just so, the Ecostrad Thermaglo is your ideal outdoor heater — providing four incremental heat settings and a gentle, less intense warmth compared to the Sunglo. Using the included remote, choose from 25%, 50%, 75%, or full power and enjoy controllable and convenient heating with a few simple clicks of the remote. Styled with sleek tear-drop shaped panes and a smooth silvery-black finish, the Thermaglo provides a sophisticated, modern edge to any garden.
Electric patio heaters for covered areas
If your garden is partially undercover, you can choose a less intense form of electric garden heater to keep warm. We stock a range of outdoor electric patio heaters that are well suited to verandas, porches, or any kind of outdoor shelter.
The Caloray Infrared Heating Disc
If you need an inconspicuous patio heater, look no further than the award-winning Caloray: a discreet infrared heater that can be endlessly customised with up to six accessories. Purchase this garden heater with a pendant-style hood to disguise the Caloray as a light fitting, or opt for the wall hanger for a slice of street-lamp chic. Whatever your preference, the Caloray provides soothing far infrared heat that excels in sheltered garden areas.
The Ecostrad Thermostrip
The Ecostrad Thermostrip is the ultimate unobtrusive garden heater and offers low-key heating for covered outdoor spaces. Finished in matt black, with zero light heating elements, this patio heater blends into its surroundings while providing gentle, far-reaching infrared heat. Available in either a 1800w output, with remote and non-remote versions, or a 2400w output, with remote and non-remote versions, the Thermostrip is as versatile as it is discreet and ensures you’re making the most of your outdoor area this autumn.
Whether you need a powerful garden heat lamp for your exposed patio, or a subtle garden heater for your veranda, at Infrared Heaters Direct, we have everything you need to keep warm outdoors. Browse our full range today and resist the urge to stay cooped up indoors until the cold weather passes.
