Patio Heater Review
Patio heaters used to be a luxury item that you would only
see at a restaurant in Napa Valley, today they are becoming commonplace
to many patios, screened in porches and decks.

and provide the right atmosphere for most outdoor gatherings anytime of
the year. To further research these units as the comparisons chart
