Outdoor heating ideas

It’s possible to spend time outside all year round with the right outdoor heating solution. The team at Heatstrip take us through some of the options available to help you achieve outdoor heating anywhere, anytime.

The Heatstrip Classic

With Heatstrip's innovative heating solutions, there’s no need to abandon your outdoor area in the cooler months or compromise its style with bulky freestanding heaters.

The Heatstrip Classic (pictured above) is a stylish electric radiant heater that provides even and comfortable heat. With a unique slimline shape and black facade, the unit blends elegantly into any decor. 

It is one of the most energy-efficient heaters available in Australia, with running costs starting from just 30 cents per hour, a fraction of the cost compared to gas-bottled patio heaters. 

This cutting-edge heater can provide comfort heating within undercover alfresco dining and barbecue areas, patios, verandas, courtyards and balconies.

The Heatstrip Max

The Heatstrip Max is suitable for difficult-to-heat, exposed outdoor sites and areas with high ceilings such as pergolas, as well as balconies and indoor spaces like garages.

Using unique low-glow heating technology, the heating element provides a mild and unobtrusive glow and energy is directed towards producing heat rather than unwanted light. The dual-element design allows for a compact unit while maintaining maximum efficiency.

It also uses the latest material coating and heating element technology, Thermofilm, a world leader in electric heaters, that introduced the first off-white outdoor heater.

The Heatstrip Elegance

The new Heatstrip Elegance series blends seamlessly with most white ceilings in alfresco, patio and verandah areas, and is available in three sizes and types: 1800W, 2400W and 3600W. The shorter, more compact design will transform any area into a stylish, vibrant and sophisticated space with less surface area than most other heaters, providing effective heating comfort.
