Infrared heating for your terrace

A terrace worthy of the name

Make the most of your terrace!

Whether you like to read, have a drink or simply relax, a good outdoor heater on your terrace lets you extend the moments on it. No more excuses for staying indoors when the weather gets a little colder. With a few choices available to take your terrace to a more comfortable space, we’ve written this article to clear up your options.

Why choose an electric heater over a propane heater?

There are many reasons to choose an electric radiant heater over a propane or gas one.

  • Security

There are a number of risks associated with propane patio heaters. Never move them during use, use them only in ventilated areas to avoid the risk of intoxication, do not use them too close to a wall, etc.

  • Flexibility

Electric infrared patio heating systems offer a high degree of flexibility thanks to a range of control options. A very popular option is the universal control panel, which lets you control your system with one or more smart Wi-Fi dimmers or directly via your phone. If you have a home automation system at home, you can opt for a home automation panel. Finally, if you want simpler control, a simple dimmer is available.

  • Ray directionality

Electric infrared allows the rays to be concentrated where they are needed, making it easy to heat the sections you want.

  • Limited space

Why condemn part of your terrace with a large, free-standing propane patio heater when you can conserve every precious square foot by installing a high-mounted unit?

  • Aesthetics

    They say that beauty is a matter of taste, or that beauty is subjective, but we can agree that a deck with an electric heater is much more aesthetically pleasing than one with a propane heater.

A system for every terrace

Electric radiant heating systems can be subtly integrated for a sleek look, or used to accentuate other elements of the terrace.
