Carbon Fibre Patio Heaters
Carbon element patio heaters offer infrared heat using a carbon fibre element. These heaters are ideal for partially sheltered or indoor heating requirements. Traditionally used in a commercial setting but also in top-end residential patio heaters.
Their increased efficiency, provides more heat at a lower consumption. This makes them more environmentally friendly and they’re also cheaper to run. They also tend to have an increased heating area and range as well as having a longer life-span (usually 7,000-10,000+ hours).
The cheapest carbon fibre patio heater on the market that we’ve found is the Optima Heaters 1.5kW Advanced Ceiling or Wall Mounted Patio Heater priced under £100!
Most carbon fibre heaters will cost upwards of £200 and can go into the thousands! So while they can have a higher upfront cost compared to traditional halogen or quartz lamps, they cost less to run and will require less maintenance, making them worth it in the long run.
Optima Heaters, Veito and Warmwatcher all carry carbon fibre elements as well as some of the Chillchaser (Heat Outdoors) range.
