  • Costway 13kW Stainless Steel Patio Heater

Made from Stainless Steel and adjustable temperature. It claims a fantastic heating area of 16sqm and is cheaper than any other stainless steel patio heater we’ve come across!

Costway – 13kW Stainless Steel Gas Patio Heater Review

This patio heater is cheap, doesn’t weight too much and is made from stainless steel, which offers protection against rust — All of this for under £100!

Heating Area

With an approximate heating area of 16sqm thanks to the large 81cm dome reflector. While this is slightly less than the Firefly 12kW stainless steel patio heater (19.6sqm) and slightly less than average for free standing gas patio heaters, it’s still perfectly acceptable and shouldn’t put you off.

Heating Type

This patio heater will accept propane or butane as its fuel source and comes with a handy storage unit underneath.

Suitable for tanks up to 11kg.

Power Settings & Specifics

What we really like about this patio heater is the integrated and adjustable push and turn ignition switch. It lets you control the heat output and consumption ranging from 5kW to 13kW depending on your needs.

Stainless steel isn’t just practical, it’s nice to look at as well!

The Costway 13kW heater is available in 4 colours (Black / Bronze / Satin Grey / Silver Grey) – unfortunately the Bronze edition is slightly more expensive than the other colours, but not by much.

We highly recommend stainless steel heaters over powder coated heaters as they can survive against the elements for a lot longer!

Features & Extras

Theses heaters have a number of extra features:

  • Safety tilt shut off valve
  • Wheels for easy mobility
  • Stainless steel construction
  • Push & turn ignition
  • Gas regulator & hose

Weighing it at just 18kg this heater is a fair bit lighter than other gas heaters on the market.

Cost to Run?

Based on a 13000W free standing patio heater & a 11kg tank of gas (refill only) costing £29.99

13000W = 0.945kg (Based on the manufacturers 945g/h rating)

11kg / 0.945kg = 11.65 hours per 11kg tank of gas

£29.99 / 11.65 hours (At Full Power @13kW) =  £2.57 per hour

Low Power 5kW = £0.90 per hour

PatioMate’s Thoughts

Costway 13kW Stainless Steel Patio Heater

Fantastic for the price. Comes with an array of safety features and both the gas hose and regulator are supplied.

Purchase Cost
Running Costs
  • Rust Resistant Stainless Steel Construction
  • Cheapest Premium Gas Patio Heater on the Market
  • Available in 4 Colours
  • Slightly Smaller than Average Heating Area

We absolutely adore this heater. It doesn’t offer anything particularly special over other premium stainless steel heaters in this price bracket, but it is cheaper than the rest of them!

If you’re comfortable with some light assembly and don’t want to spend over £100 then we highly recommend this heater.
