Sure, temperatures are dropping, but that doesn’t mean that you have to spend the next three months indoors. Getting outside is great for you and Abt doesn’t want to let cold weather stop you from enjoying the fresh air or watching the sun set. Our collection of outdoor and patio heaters are the perfect solution for cold-weather gatherings. Patio heaters are typically larger than indoor heaters, operate on liquid propane, natural gas, or electricity and can be installed in a variety of ways. Choose between umbrella or pyramid styles depending on the aesthetic of your patio. Whether you’re grilling into the winter months or adding some extra warmth for a weekend bonfire, patio heaters are a must-have for outdoor entertainers.
