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!
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.back to menu ↑
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.back to menu ↑
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.back to menu ↑
We highly recommend stainless steel heaters over powder coated heaters as they can survive against the elements for a lot longer!back to menu ↑
Features & Extras
Theses heaters have a number of extra features:
- Safety tilt shut off valve

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

Cost to Run?
Based on a 13000W free standing patio heater & a 11kg tank of gas (refill only) costing £29.99
back to menu ↑
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
