WHICH ARE THE BEST PATIO HEATERS / OUTDOOR HEATERS TO BUY?

We have a range of outdoor patio heaters but the most effective, practical and most popular is our Cast Iron Aussie Heatwave Outdoor Heating Patio Heater.

The Cast Iron Aussie Heatwave Outdoor Heater out performs all other outdoor patio heaters or outdoor fireplaces for outdoor heating.

The Cast Iron Aussie Heatwave Patio Heater produces more radiant heat, (as seen in Burkes Backyard thermal imaging camera tests) will last a lifetime and beyond, requires no maintenance and with the cooking attachments it easily converts into a full wood fired pizza oven that rivals any full size Italian wood fired pizza oven. The Cast Iron Aussie Heatwave Patio Heater in many ways is better as it's portable, much easier to use and a fraction of the price and it's dual purpose so you get both an outdoor patio heater & a woodfired BBQ & Pizza Oven.

The BBQ & Pizza oven are simply placed on top of the chimney and use the heat from the fire, without any flaring so no flames come into contact with the food resulting a tender juicy results when cooking meats and beautiful crispy flavoursome pizza's.

BOURKES BACKYARD OUTDOOR PATIO HEATERS THERMAL IMAGING TESTS

To assure you of the effectiveness of wood burning patio heaters - Chimineas, go to Burkes's Backyard site to see Thermal Imaging Camera test results for Outdoor Heating / Patio Heater. The test results show Chimineas to be the most effective for outdoor heating, both for heat and running costs. This outdoor heating test was independently conducted on the clay version of our outdoor patio heater - chiminea prior to us having the cast iron chiminea, so you need to keep in mind that the cast iron Aussie Heatwave chiminea will produce a lot more radiant heat than even the clay did in these results.

ENVIRONMENTAL BENEFITS OF WOOD BURING OUTDOOR HEATERS

Wood burning patio heaters are also very environmentally friendly as they are carbon neutral, as timber is a renewable energy unlike gas or other fossil fuels.

Outdoor Heaters - Outdoor Heating - Patio Heaters

In fact firewood from plantations is greenhouse positive due to the carbon that is sequestered in the tree's root mass. The reason that sustainable firewood is so good for the environment is that all of the carbon that is produced during combustion is reabsorbed by trees as they grow. The only increase in greenhouse gas comes from the diesel that is consumed by trucks when the wood is transported. It is worth noting that even "green" energy generators such as wind farms, hydro stations and solar collectors create a lot of greenhouse gas during manufacture and construction.

Firewood is not often recognised as a practical, readily available source of "green" energy for heating. Unlike other sources of "green" energy, firewood does not need major capital investment or infrastructure. Every tonne of firewood contains approximately 20,000 Megajoules of stored energy. To understand how this stored energy compares to other forms of "green" energy such as wind power electricity generation, you need to convert the electricity produced from Megawatt hours into Megajoules. One Megawatt hour equals 3,600 Megajoules. This means that a typical 660 kW wind turbine will generate the same amount of energy in one year, to that contained in 315 tonnes of firewood. Recent estimates (Driscoll et al 2000) place Australia's annual firewood consumption at around 4,000,000 tonnes. This is equivalent to the annual output of 12,700 (660 kW) wind turbines or six large (500 MW) coal fired power stations.

By using firewood to heat their homes and for outdoor heating, every Australian can help to reduce this country's reliance on coal-fired power generation (Sourced from Firewood Association of Australia)
