Enjoy your outdoors all year with Heatstrip heaters

Entertaining outdoors is a great Aussie tradition and the right outdoor heater can make it possible to do it all year round. You can keep everybody warm outside, while saving on running costs and increasing the value of your home, with Heatstrip outdoor heaters. With a modern, minimalist style, Heatstrip outdoor heaters can enhance the appearance and functionality of any outdoor area. Heatstrip’s Greg Trezise notes that looking good is one of the key aims of these Australian designed heaters. “Our history is all about quality products that perform the best and are really aesthetically pleasing. So, the look and style are very important to us.”

Enjoy a nice gentle radiant heat

Heatstrip heaters are designed to be installed above an outdoor table or seating area. “The most effective option is heating those particular areas rather than trying to heat a big space. That gives you the best performance,” says Greg.

The warmth radiating from the Heatstrip heaters is “similar to the heat from the sun,” says Greg. “On a warm day you feel a lot hotter when you’re in the sun, but if you go in the shade, it's actually cool because you're out of that radiant heat.”

Save on your heating costs

Compared to gas bottle heaters, Heatstrip is very efficient, with much lower running costs. Gas powered ‘mushroom heaters’ cost over $2 per hour to run, while the Heatstrip range cost between 45 and 90 cents per hour.

One Heatstrip heater can adequately warm many more people than a ‘mushroom heater’. “For outdoor areas with a four or six-seater table, one of the medium or larger size heaters directly above is enough,” says Greg.

Never worry about running out of gas

“Everyone knows that moment when you’re running out of gas in a gas bottle. It always happens at the most inopportune time,” comments Greg. Heatstrip heaters run on electricity so you never have to worry about running out of gas. They reach maximum heat within five to ten minutes, so you can simply flick on the switch moments before you step outside.

Increase the value of your home

Heatstrip heaters are designed to look good, so you can design your whole outdoor area around them. The real value is in the ability to use your backyard all year round, even in autumn and spring. “You might have a beautiful day, but the nights start to get very chilly very quickly, so you definitely need that outdoor heating, so you can enjoy more time outside,” notes Greg.

Australian designed, engineered and assembled

Behind the pleasing aesthetics of Heatstrip heaters is the ability to withstand the harsh Australian environment, including salt laden winds near the coast. There’s no ongoing maintenance required, and they are easy to clean. “Give them just a bit of a light hose down. They're very robust like that,” Greg says.

Easy D.I.Y. installation

The Classic and Elegance heaters plug straight into a power point for easy D.I.Y. installation. Even so, Greg says many people choose to have an electrician install the heaters.

“Often, they choose to get an electrician to install it just so there's no plugs showing, and they can wire it to an on/off switch or controller as well. That way it blends in and people don't even actually see that it’s there. They just wonder where that nice gentle heat is coming from.”
