There is one important thing to consider in the planning phase of your future pergola, gazebo, or covered porch: Combustible Clearances

I have personally taken many calls from customers who have built an outdoor-entertainment area and piped gas in for outdoor heaters. I have disappointed many of those customers when I have informed them that their combustible clearances are too low for gas patio heaters. Here are some rules of thumb to consider when designing your heated outdoor structure:

  • The lowest part of the lowest power overhead gas patio heaters typically should be at least 8' above the floor or ground below it.
  • Most overhead gas outdoor heaters are 8" to 12" tall.
  • For the greatest flexibility of patio heater models and to maintain the ability to tilt the heaters allow 18" above each heater to the closest combustible surface.
  • That equals up to 30" (2½') from the closest combustible above to the bottom of the heater.
  • In short if you have 10½' or more from the bottom of combustible surfaces above where the overhead gas patio heaters are going to be mounted and the floor then you have maximum flexibility.
  • The minimum flexibility for a gas patio heater is with the Habanero M20, pointed straight down with a low-clearance mounting kit. This has a 3" top clearance and is about 11" tall. With this you could get by with a 9' combustible clearance, so long as the heater is not mounted directly over stationary people's heads. Ideally it would be mounted over a table.

If local codes (or other considerations) prevent you from building so tall a structure, there is still hope. You can use 240 volt overhead electric patio heaters, which have lower clearances from combustibles, and are typically thinner than the overhead gas heaters.

Mission Rock patio heater installation interior

I met Pete Osborne on the upper deck of Mission Rock Resort and saw a challenge. Add new patio heaters, effectively placed at the outer edge of their upper deck, part of which was 25’ over the salty, corrosive San Francisco Bay. I designed custom posts of marine-grade stainless, which mount to a vertical surface of the beam, and interface with the 1¼” steel gas pipe we would install. . Mounting the posts and gas lines over the bay required an articulating boom lift. Large gas lines also were also run over the water.We did all of this while keeping half of their deck open for alfresco dining at lunch every day. The result is nine post-mounted SunPak S34-S patio heaters warming the upper deck of the restaurant, overlooking the shipyards of San Francisco, and over the bay to Oakland. Mission Rock is close to AT&T Park, so you can stop in for a drink or dinner before or after a San Francisco Giants baseball game.

And this is only the beginning. In the Fall of 2014 we will install seven more SunPak patio heaters to heat the below-deck seawall for big holiday parties, and three more SunPaks and three powerful Habanero M50-S stainless steel patio heaters, to warm the wooden dining pier at the north end of the restaurant.

The meaning of "infrared"

3/31/2014 6:45 PM

Almost all patio heaters are infrared. The sun is a great example of an infrared heater. Its rays travel through space and don't heat it, but when it hits a solid object, Earth, heat is created. Infrared patio heaters don't try to heat the air (like a convection heater) but instead heat the furniture, floor, objects, and people directly. That said, in a covered area you will get some residual heat build up in the air.
