Trying to decide whether or not to rent an outdoor heater?
Are you intimidated by all the different types of outdoor heaters, or are you a little bit worried about their safety?
Let's do some research into the different types of outdoor heaters available, and then figure out where each one works best.
Indirect fired heaters function like a home furnace where the air is heated as it passes over an enclosed heating element. The air is cleaner and the amount of CO2 produced is reduced. There is no significant humidity added and the thermostat will maintain a comfortable temperature without overheating the space. These heaters are typically installed outside with warm air ducted to the inside. They are rugged with heavy-duty steel construction.
Indirect fired heaters are self-contained and the dry heat makes them perfect for areas where mold is a concern. In addition, a simple network of ductwork to channel heat will allow you to heat multiple rooms at once.These heaters use an external exhaust system which keeps fumes away from your area. Smaller heaters have an on-board fuel tank, while a larger unit will usually have a separate fuel tank plumbed to the heater. The kind of fuel which can be used can be oil, natural gas, or propane.
Heating the outdoors can require a great deal of power. The heater must have a powerful fan to be able to spread warmth evenly across a wide area. It's best not to use heaters where cords need to be run where people are sitting, standing, or walking. Indirect heaters which are placed outside the area and are powered by gas with ducting that sends warm air inside are the best type. These kinds of heater are expensive to buy so find a company that specializes in these heaters, will install, maintain, and retrieve them when finished.
In very cold seasons you may want to run the heater for a period of time before guests arrive to warm the area. Test the heater beforehand at the time of day when it will be used so that you will know how long the space takes to heat to a comfortable temperature and how long you will need to run the unit to keep guests comfortable.
When you are considering using an outdoor heater, be sure to let the supplier know about the type of event, the outdoor space to be heated and the number of guests you expect. They will be able to advise you on the most suitable type of heating solution.

When it's a good idea and how to find them
Why would you need to rent an outdoor heater?
An outdoor heater can be the solution to keeping guests, customers, clients, and employees warm and comfortable in all types of outdoor settings. Most outdoor heaters are either direct or indirect fired heaters.
What is the difference between direct and indirect fired heaters?
Outdoor Spaces Where Heaters Are Commonly Used:
1. Patio Heater
Patio heaters provide 10-12 foot circle of warmth without requiring electricity. These are the "umbrella" type heaters used by bars and restaurants to keep guests from becoming chilled. These types of heaters can be used in tents, however they require an area of clearance because the propane tank is located at the bottom of the unit.
2. TENT HEATERS
If you are planning on renting a tent, there are several types of heaters to choose from. Primarily the heaters and propane tanks will be located outside of the tent on the non-focal side. Hot air is forced in through vents on the ground. Make sure that whatever heater you choose has a thermostat to keep the environment at the desired temperature and also to ensure the heater doesn't run continuously.
3. WAREHOUSES, CONSTRUCTION OR MANUFACTURING SITES
These areas offer unique challenges when it come to heating. Very often these areas are large and open with high ceilings, sometimes with large doors which need to be opened frequently. Manufacturing processes and equipment may be affected by extreme temperature changes. Choosing the right heater for these areas may require the expertise of a rental company that specializes in portable heater rentals.
You can buy outdoor heaters from almost any big box store, but when it comes to renting, it helps to have an idea of what you want. Heater size can vary from 20,000 to 125,000 BTU. Your rental provider should be able to help you determine the size needed based on the size of the area to be heated, the temperature desired, availability of electricity, and whether or not ventilation is required.
Because of the many types and sizes of heaters available to rent, it is important that you have an expert help with choosing the correct equipment. Choose a company that will answer all your questions with a high degree of expertise. Your rental company should supply all of the equipment and fuel required, deliver and set it up, and retrieve the equipment when it is no longer needed.
