If you are in the tourism or hospitality sectors, attracting customers and keeping them happy will be a key part of your business strategy. If your venue has space for guests to gather and socialise outside, you want to make sure that they are comfortable and a major factor in that is maintaining the right temperature, particularly once the sun has gone down. Perhaps the easiest and most effective way to do this is with a set of commercial patio heaters.
In this article, we’re going to take a look at some of the benefits infrared and radiant heaters can offer to your venue:
What Is A Patio Heater?
A patio heater is exactly what it sounds like – a heat source that is placed or fitted outside. They can be wall-mounted or attached to portable stands, with the most popular models being known as radiant heaters. These use a lamp or heating element to produce infrared heat, which provides direct warmth to your guests and is not dissipated by the surrounding air.
Who Uses Patio Heaters?
Really, anybody can use a patio heater, so long as they have the room and a way of connecting it to the mains. Over recent years, they have become extremely popular with domestic and commercial buildings alike. As far as commercial radiant heaters are concerned, these are some of the most likely places to find them:
- Tourist Attractions
- Wedding Venues
What are the Benefits of a Patio Heater?
There are many benefits to investing in a commercial patio heater. These are some of the most popular ones:
Infrared is one of the most energy-efficient types of outdoor heating available, providing even heat distribution wherever your guests are seated. Unlike other types of heaters, they convert 95% of their consumed energy into radiant heat, and with maximum heat output in just 1-2 seconds you’re guaranteed to get the best performance for your money.
Our commercial infrared heaters are also designed with long-life lamps that provide up to 7,000 hours of uninterrupted heat.
Make Use of Your Space
If you have an outdoor seating area at your establishment, you’ll be aware of just how much custom it can attract during the Summer months. Through the use of commercial patio heaters, you can extend the use of this area on cooler evenings and even into the colder months.
It’s also an excellent way to keep the smokers warm during their cigarette break and encourage them to stay longer as well as accommodating those that prefer to sit outside post-Covid.
Keeping Your Guests Entertained
Why not opt for an infrared radiant heater with Bluetooth and keep your guests entertained with music played directly through the built-in speaker? You can play crisp and clear sounding music directly from your phone or other Bluetooth device to create a fun ambiance.
