Outdoor Heating Solutions

It’s no secret that having the heating on in a home with open windows and doors is a waste of money. Instead of just heating an enclosed space, much of the heat escapes outside where it is lost in the vast open-air beyond your walls. So how, then, do you heat an outdoor space? Efficiency is key. Outdoor heaters are essentially wasting energy by pumping heat out where it can be immediately lost, so the more efficient they are, the better. Fortunately, there are a number of outdoor heating solutions that can meet this need and No1PHD are on hand to supply and implement these solutions.

Why is Outdoor Heating Different to Indoor Heating?

An indoor space, often insulated and protected from external temperature changes, can act as a heat reserve. The heat that is put into such a space is not immediately lost, and therefore the amount of heat required to warm a room up is much lower. This is how an installed radiator can be cool enough to touch, but still warm enough to heat an entire room. Outdoor heaters, however, cannot rely on this environmental property to heat an area. Any heat from an outdoor heater immediately dissipates into the surrounding air. For this reason, outdoor heaters have to output much more heat to warm up anything in the area. In short, they need to be able to put out intense, directional heat rather, than gentle, omnidirectional heat.

Patio Heaters from No1PHD

Possibly the most popular method of outdoor heating for both residential and commercial heating services, the patio heater. These are usually radiant heaters, meaning they heat things directly as—mentioned above—rather than warming the air around. This makes them ideal for heating specific areas, as the heat is literally directional and can be aimed wherever you like. If you’re unsure if a patio heater is right for you, call us to talk about your situation and the best solution for you. Patio heaters come in two flavours.

Gas Patio Heaters

The only real advantage of a gas patio heater over an electric one is portability. They’re usually more cumbersome, they take longer to warm up, and they are nearly always more expensive to run. What they aren’t, however, is reliant on an electrical connection. This makes them ideal for remote locations, or areas that are just out of practical reach of an electrical outlet. Gas can obviously be dangerous if improperly handled, so be sure to have one of our experts install your gas patio heater to ensure it is safe to use.

Electric Patio Heaters

As implied above, electric patio heaters have many advantages over their gas counterparts. They warm up quicker, are more efficient (and cheaper to run as a result), and less bulky due to not requiring a gas bottle on hand. They are, however, limited to areas that have a source of electricity within reach. Running electrical wiring, especially outdoors, should be left to professionals. At No1PHD we have the expertise to ensure your electric patio heater is safely installed.

Halogen Heaters

While technically an electric heater that can be used in a patio area, halogen heaters are often far less obtrusive than their patio counterparts. These heaters stand or hang above the heated area and project heat downwards using infrared. This method of heating means that the heat is almost instantaneous from the moment the heater is switched on. Another advantage of halogen heaters is that they are cheaper than a typical gas patio heater. Two popular form factors for halogen heaters are the upright parasol design, which is similar to a standard patio heater, and the hanging design, which often resembles a stylish industrial lamp.

Which Type of Outdoor Heater is Right for Me?

The layout of the area you’re looking to heat makes all the difference. If you’re not near an electrical source, that all but rules out any electric outdoor heater solutions. If the space you’re heating is open-air, you would probably benefit from a radiant heater—such as a patio heater—rather than convection heaters—such as a fire pit—which work better in enclosed spaces. If you’re unsure, have a chat with a No1PHD expert, and let us walk you down the path to the perfect outdoor heating solution.

After noticing that the house was unusually cold, we found that the heating wasn’t coming on and that our hot water had also failed. We called the team at No 1 PHD who dispatched an engineer to investigate. After discovering that the culprit was a faulty boiler part, they ordered in a new part and got it fitted as quickly as possible. The guys were great, and we couldn’t be happier.

Mr Lincoln

For days, we’ve noticed a foul smell coming from outside and a gurgling sound coming from one of the drains. Whenever it would rain, the area around it would flood slightly and take ages to drain. We tried buying drain unblockers, but none seemed effective. Eventually, we turned to No 1 PHD and were left wondering why we didn’t do this sooner.
