I have never even thought about a table top heater, but it is a great idea for the cooler evenings. As we have crazy cats, I like that it shuts down if it were to get tipped over! It appears easy enough to put together and very handy to have. This would be perfect for our deck, thanks for the information!
This is one item that is forgotten when looking at outdoor ideas.
Great ideas! We are looking to enclose our outside deck and this would be a great addition. Thanks for sharing!
Thanks for you input. When you are ready come back and see what else has been added to this site.
This is exactly what I need. I like to knock as much out of the outdoors in the summer and I love to sit out on a summer evening, but it can be chilly. A table top heater is the ideal solution
This type of heater will work where you do not have the ability to exhaust the smoke.
Does the unit put out much light from the bulb? We arent interested in much light at all. What colors are available?
This table top heater will put out a soft light. It is available in several models and colors, gray to a cherry wood finish.
Thank you for the details of what to expect when you get this patio heater.
I must say this is the first time that I’ve seen the Endless Summer Vacation Day 1200 watt heater, from Walmart no less.
I’ve only ever seen patio heaters that look like stainless steel mushrooms and that use gas to heat. The electric patio heater can be a great alternative.
Does this heater have different settings?
It would be nice to have it set to half power if all the heat is not needed.
Look forward to your answer.
The biggest problem with this patio heater is the non adjustable heat. It only has a push button for on/off. It is great for sitting on the patio or side table to keep your conversation area warm during the cool evenings.
