The heaters are resistant to water and will not short circuit if it gets wet. The product is stable enough to be placed under an umbrella or attached to the ceiling. The heater comes with 3 lamps measuring 40” each and provides enough heat to those beneath it.

This is a safer product because it uses electricity, and gas is not required to make it function; the heater does not require fire to produce heat.

The heater will only consume about 20 cents of electricity an hour, but this will vary with the electricity rates of the area. In the event that the product overheats, the heater will automatically turn off; it will also  will shut down if it is tilted.

This is a product that is reliable and makes entertaining easy. Once installed, the heater can be left outdoors as it has the capability of resisting rust and corrosion. The frame will not melt or get dented over time. For restaurant owners, the heater can facilitate outdoor dining for more months in a year.

The heater is good for all-year use. It will generate enough heat to make winter more bearable, whether on the deck or inside.

Since the AZ Electric Patio Heater product comes in three lamps, they can be alternately turned on, and you will not necessarily have to run all three lamps.

The light that is produced is mellow and produces a warm glow compared to other heaters that give off a glare that is painful to the eyes. The addition of the heater makes an outdoor deck look classy and the warmth is comfortable.

Disadvantages

Since the heater is placed overhead, the heat can be blown away by the wind. The heater tends to be too diffused and will only reach the head and not the entire body. The user will still have to wear a jacket if the heater is turned on. When the heater is placed too high, it is useless and will just generate light and not heat.

Verdict

This is a good product to be used by people needing overhead heating, but the heater should not be placed too high to feel its warmth. The AZ Electric Patio Heater is structurally good due to the stainless steel frames which can resist heavy rain.

However, electric heaters are limited when it comes to generating heat, and heat diffuses when the wind blows. This product should not be placed too high up.
