When you overhaul the look of your patio and update the furniture, the grilling area, and maybe even include a new overhang, it’s understandable that you are going to want to spend more time out there!
However, when the weather gets colder, that may not be a viable option. Well, that is until you include a patio heater like the AmazonBasics Havana Bronze Commercial Patio Heater into the design of your newly renovated patio or deck space.
In this review, we are going to talk a little more about the features of the AmazonBasics Havana Bronze Commercial Patio Heater, but we are also going to give you an overview of what people who have purchased the patio heater had to say about their overall experience with it.
Then, we’re going to give you our recommendation on whether or not this heater is something you should consider purchasing for your own patio!
When it comes to trusted names in all things for the home, AmazonBasics is making quite the name for themselves, especially with the introduction of one of the best outdoor heaters available online that isn’t going to cost you a small fortune. This heater can be placed anywhere in your yard and it will emit enough heat to keep you and your loved ones warm without needing to hover right around the unit.
Notable features of the AmazonBasics Havana Bronze Commercial Patio Heater include:
Instead of having to use a lighter stick to light a patio heater, this unit features the Piezo ignition system, so you only have to press a button and that’s it. The moment the heater comes on, you can adjust the heat level to your preferred setting by using the large variable heat control knob. That knob is also know you will turn the unit off, as well.
As far as safety goes, this unit features a shut-off tilt valve that will turn the heater off should ever the heater be knocked over while it is on. The moment that the heater detects a sharp tilt to any side, the unit will turn off instantly.
You may think that outdoor heaters are loud and you won’t be able to hear anyone who may be talking to you if you’re standing too close to the heater. With the AmazonBasics heater, you don’t have to worry about missing out on those juicy tidbits of gossip because it runs silently. Though the unit is silent, it also runs efficiently, so that heat will be produced continuously without any open flames or smoke.
When we looked at the user reviews, we saw that 79% had great things to say about the AmazonBasics Havana Bronze Commercial Patio Heater and left 4 or 5-star reviews. Of these reviews, people commented on how nicely this patio heater was able to fit into their décor. Customers also like that the unit runs silently, that way they can enjoy a peaceful evening with their loved ones.
Customers said that the unit was packaged well and they didn’t have any problems with missing or damaged pieces. When it came to assembling to heater, they said that it was a little tricky because the instructions weren’t 100% clear, but it didn’t take them too long to figure it out. Customers said they really liked that the moment the pressed the button, the heater would start right up and they could feel the heat within seconds.
So what did the remaining 21% of customers who left 3-star or below reviews have to say? The most common complaint customers had that the heater didn’t feel sturdy enough to be able to stay upright during strong wind.
Customers also said that when their units did topple over, the unit became damaged, and instead of being able to get a single replacement part from the company, they were told by customer service to disassemble the entire heater, send it back, and they would then get a brand new heater.
As you can imagine, customers were annoyed by this because not only did they have to take the whole thing apart (after having troubles putting it together in the first place), but they also had to pay for the unit to be shipped back.
For a unit that is less than $150 and for it to have pretty good reviews, we feel that this is a pretty nice patio heater. It’s modern design will be a beautiful accent to any outdoor living space.
When the heater isn’t in use, you don’t have to worry about taking the unit apart so you can store it because this unit features wheels at the base, which makes it easy to move the unit for storage, or just repositioning it to another area with ease. We do want to point out that although several customers felt the unit is not sturdy enough to stand up to strong winds, it is recommended that you add weights or sand to the base of the heater to add to its stability.
You’ll find that with this particular heater, it is an affordable option, but it is also a safe option as well. The unit features an easy ignition system, so you never have to worry about using a candle lighter to start the heater, but it also features a shut-off tilt valve.
With this valve, you can rest assured knowing that if the heater should ever get knocked over while it is on, that mechanism will shut the heater off automatically, thus ensure nothing will catch on fire.
When you’re looking for a heater that is going to be cost effective, but also provide you with plenty of warmth during the colder months, this is going to be a great option.
