We will look at the Copper Finish Deluxe outdoor patio propane heater in this review. We will look at what you get, what you will need to purchase extra and how it works.
What you get in the box and what you will need
You will get a heater that will be 93 inches tall, 20 inches wide at the base and 33 inches wide at the top of the hood. Total weight will be a little over 40 pounds.
Assembly can be a little difficult. You may need help getting the holes lined up to insert the bolts to hold the assembly together. Need to fill the base with sand to weight it down, not covered in directions until the end of manual.
As this heater runs on Propane, you will need to buy a 20 lb tank and get it filled. This will be an expense for the first time, refills will be much cheaper as you will only have to refill the tank. This is the same as a regular size tank for a gas BBQ grill. so you can get it refilled at a lot of places.
How does it work
After assembly and adding the propane tank your work is done. The electronic piezo igniter will light your double mantel heating grid with a simple push of the button. Once lit the heater will produce 46,000 BTU's of heat. This is enough to heat an area about 9 foot all around it.
The tank will last about 10 hours with each refill.
Your propane heater will turn off if tipped over with a sensor to stop the gas flow when the heater is not upright.
The weighted base will keep your heater upright in most conditions. Make sure that during assembly you fill the base with sand before total assembly. This is a step in the manual that is not covered until the unit is assembled.
Wheels on one side of the heater will allow the movement of the heater to any location with ease. This will keep you from hurting the back trying to get the heavy heater to your location.
Produces a good amount fo heat
Has several safety features to protect your family
Wind and surrounding conditions can effect heating ability
Aligning the holes to assemble may take some finesse. Some directions not very clear.
Finish will need protection to last as long as rest of heater
This heater will be a good addition to your outdoor space. See the following link to see where to get your own outdoor patio propane heater and a vinyl cover that is available to protect your heater when not in use..
Once getting past the assembly the heater works as designed, but heats better in an area that is is protected from the wind. The wind will blow the heat away very quickly.
