During summer we spend so much time outside. We play, we entertain, we cook and then, at the first sign of a chilly evening or the end of daylight savings, we look longing at our outdoor entertaining area and promise to do it all again next summer.
Thanks to Infratech outdoor heating there is a way to still spend evenings outdoors – even in the dead of winter. Australians love the outdoor life and thanks to contemporary designs, it is now possible to use your purpose built outdoor entertaining area all year round. Good quality outdoor electric heating is the key and Infratech have an extensive range of size and wattage to complement any outdoor space.
How do I know where to install an outdoor heater?
With Infratech’s flexible designs you can wall mount, pole mount or ceiling mount the unit. You can even recess the heater flush with the ceiling which means the heater won’t even be seen unless pointed out. Our staff can give you suggestions or even design a unique plan for your area.
The way you utilise your outdoor area is important to the placement of the unit. For example, you wouldn’t place a heater above the BBQ, instead an installation closer to the dining area would be a better choice.
Is the space enclosed or open plan with a flat ceiling or perhaps with exposed beams?
Having the answers would lead to you to imagine where you would like the unit mounted. If you had a patio area with exposed beams you might place the unit at either end of the outdoor dining table fixed to one of the beams. If you had a small sitting area near a solid wall you may attach a smaller sized heater there. If the area was enclosed you might flush mount the heaters into the ceiling to minimise their visual impact on the space. Ultimately, Infratech heaters are incredibly versatile and can be fitted with any design you choose.
How will I know what size outdoor heater to buy?
It is important to know the size and layout of your outdoor area. This will assist in choosing the right size, wattage and installation points for your heater/s.
Infratech have several units in different categories which include slight feature variations to give customers the widest choice possible and end up with the perfect heater for their situation.
Feature differences include size, wattage (ranging from 2000-6000 watts), controllers, switches and colours. Infratech are sure to have a unique design to balance your outdoor area beautifully.
