The heater is safe and will not burst in flames because the heat is transferred to the glass tubes. Users will not be harmed by sudden bursts of flames, and igniting the heater is easy. The warm glow is good will significantly raise temperatures, as well as create additional lighting for an outdoor patio. The glow of the heater can light a radius of 8’.

The heater is stable and easily moved. It can be left outside and will not rust. The structure of the product will tolerate light to moderate wind.

The parts are all rust-free and made with quality materials. All accessories are durable and make the product last for years. The product is CSA certified that guarantees users security and hazard-free use. When turned on, the burner will not give a strong burst of flames that could  potentially be dangerous.

The regulator will release a moderated amount of gas that will produce small flames. Eventually, the flames will build up and create a yellow light that will crawl up the glass tubes.  You will not feel overwhelmed with the product when it is lit up. The heat generated will not drastically raise the temperature but will slowly it build up.

For the price of the AZ Patio Heater, the look is classy and can brighten up an otherwise dull patio. It can be used for a long time and a warranty covers parts replacement.

Disadvantages

The product is difficult to assemble and the manual that comes with the product is confusing. There are many parts and screws that come with the heater, which will take time to get everything sorted out.

For purposes that need extreme heat and will be needing more than 40,000 BTUs, the product will be a disappointment because it produces a soft flame that is regulated by two glass tubes. The heat of the unit comes from the bottom and not from the top.

Older models have rusty screws and panels that were eventually changed in the newer versions. Some units come with incomplete screw and bolts sets. Because the manual is hard to understand, calling the technical support will be necessary.

Assembly time is time consuming and will require adjustments because some of the parts seem to be misaligned. The task will require a lot of testing and refining.

Verdict

The AZ Patio Heater is a practical purchase because it is durable and safe to use; it generates heat as well as light. The look of the product is classic and it adds elegance to the patio. It is useful for most of the fall and winter season, and cool spring nights. However, the product has lots of parts and will take a lot of time to assemble.
