Firefly / HeatLab – 2kW Water Resistant Free Standing Patio Heater

A great addition to the garden, realistically priced with 3 power settings and it’s water resistant!

This patio heater is the #1 bestselling heater on Amazon!

It comes in three varieties – Free StandingWall MountedNo products found. or in a pack of 2 - which provides a moderate discount of around £10.

Usable both indoors and outdoors. Cheap to run and with adjustable height. You can’t ask for much more from a patio heater.

Running Costs

This heater has 3 power settings, so consumption varies depending on which setting you’re using! Check out the cost below.

The current average per kWh in the U.K is currently 12.2 pence. So we must calculate the hourly usage as follows:

2kW heater running costs:

2kW x 1 hour = 2 kWh x 12.2p = 24.4p
2kW x 2 hours = 2 kWh x (12.2p x 2) = 48.8p

If we were to assume you used the heaters for 2 hours a night every night.

Full power (2kW or 2000W) our monthly electric bill will be £14.46.

Mid power (1.35kW or 1350W), then it would cost us £9.76 per month.

Low power (650W) we’d be looking at £4.70 per month.

This patio heater is almost identical to the Oylpa 2kW patio heater. With similar initial cost and specification. I’d recommend purchasing whichever one is cheaper at time of purchase!

Suitable For

These smaller free-standing patio heaters are really targeted to the home user rather than the commercial user but it’s perfectly fine for both. They’re really cheap to run and as an added bonus this heater is also weatherproof (IPX4 rated).

At £49.99 this patio heater was nearly perfect. With the price increase we’re not any less wary but Primrose are one of the only retailers that regularly hold stock with a large shipment coming in April/May.

It has a glorious painted metal finish, is fully adjustable, with some users removing the middle pole and turning it into a table-top heater (although we wouldn’t recommend this as 2000W of infrared heat that close will hurt!)

It’s worth mentioning that these bulbs last 2,500 hours where others last 5k+ – so make sure to factor this in.

It’s very easy to erect and weighs just 3.7kg. So most users will have no problem installing and moving it!
