Fire Mountain – 3000W Table-Top Gas Patio Heater Review
Smart and stylish on a budget! This table-top patio heater is perfect for keeping warm late at night.
High power, low cost. What more could you ask for in a patio heater?
This stainless steel heater offers an amazing 3000W of adjustable heat. Running on propane rather than electric so make sure you’ve got a tank! Currently priced at (£89.99 as of 10th May 2017), we’re offered an affordable and stylish, yet portable patio heater which is temperature adjustable and also boasts piezo ignition and a safety cut-out feature, so you’re in good hands with Fire Mountain.
How much does the Fire Mountain 3000W heater cost to run?
As we’re looking at gas heaters the cost of consumption below is based on ownership of an existing gas bottle, as these can cost anywhere from £15 to £39.99 new (and empty!).
A bottle of 13kg propane patio gas from Calor costs £32. Most modern patio heaters will use approximately 0.25kg of gas per hour at full power (3000W)
We calculate the hourly usage as follows:
3000W heater running costs:
0.25kg * 52 = 13kg
£32 / 52 hours = 0.62p
At full power we can expect this patio heater to cost us approximately 62p per hour.
At half power we can expect this patio heater to cost us approximately 31p per hour.
Realistically we won’t have a table-top patio heater on full power all night, so if we assume half power for 3 hours a night we’ll get approximately 35 days of heating from 1 bottle of 13kg gas.
So budget for a refill once every 35 days if you’re planning to use this patio heater regularly!
Is this patio heater suitable for home or commercial use?
Depending on circumstances this could be used in a commercial environment or a home environment but we’d recommend home users over commercial usage due to the ability to fiddle with temperatures and plugs!
