I knew I wanted a tall standing patio heater for my large patio area but when the product came it was larger than expected. I guess its because of the base needs to hold the propane talk.
But this patio heater definitely has range! I can leave it on one corner and the heat will get to the rest 3 corners of my patio

Well, I think my expectations were too high. It does not give off much heat, and you have to stand directly underneath it to feel anything. I have gotten a lot of grief for "heating the outdoors". The heating element is on the top of the unit, my young son said as we were putting it together, "doesn't heat rise".
I purchased this heater for our backyard. San Francisco can get chilly in the evenings, and we wanted to be able to enjoy our (rare) yard in the city.
Overall, as long as we were sitting quite close, the heater wasn't too bad. The range of heat only extend about 5 feet but since it was rare that we had more than 3-4 people outside at a time, it suited our needs.
Cons: It could be difficult to light the heater, particularly as time passed. Also, even with gravel weighting the bottom and a fully-sized canvas cover over it when not in use, it was prone to tipping over, especially if there was the slightest breeze. The hood eventually became bent from all its trips to the ground, and the screws that held the propane cover support would often become unscrewed because the heater would sway. If I weren't in a rental, I might have tried to screw the thing into the deck to give it more stability, but alas, that wasn't an option.
I'm anemic and am always cold...even in the summer. This heater is perfect. We have had 3 cookouts since we've had it and I'm able to stay on the deck with our company late into the night without becoming too cold. My company has enjoyed it as well and many have asked where I got it from. I'm looking forward to 3 seasons on my deck now!
We purchased this item in October. Unfortunately, we had such bad weather that we were not able to use this product until the spring. When we tried to use it, we could get it to ignite but could not get the heater to turn on. It appears that the gas is not reaching the top. I contacted Overstock to ask for help with this resolution. The product is 7 months old and has never been used and I was told that there is no warranty!
The Heater came packaged very well from factory but had a 20 in scratch and two small dents on the cover for the propane tank + the stack that holds the heating element was scratched and dented as well. Why would they package it up at the factory like this? It works ... don't have the time to return ...oh well.
Used it for the first time last night and it worked well. Kept the deck and the towels warm for after the hot tub. Overall its a nice product however the heat shield was dented upon arrival and it will need to be kept in inside when not in use as it will rust quickly.
