Standing Heaters

Standing heaters are mobile and can be easily moved around which makes last minute changes to your big night simple. There are a variety of types of standing heaters, some with higher temperature outputs than others. Lava Heat heaters, like the three bellow with cylinder heat sources, give off minimal heat but are very popular in Los Angeles restaurants, homes and will be the hit of your party. Patio Comfort Heaters are not as mesmerizing to look at as Lava Heat but give off much more heat.

Hanging Heaters

One of the benefits of hanging heaters is that they do not take up floor space. Standing heaters have just about a foot in diameter base. While this is not much wasted area, the idea of hanging the heaters out of reach of any small children or animals is a plus. Hanging heaters radiate consistent heat and are powered electronically.
