Owning one of the best patio heaters means you can relax in your garden or entertain friends and family without worrying about the unpredictability of British weather, especially as the nights become more chilly. 

Before you buy though, knowing what to look for is important. Electric heaters tend to be cheaper but need to be plugged in, while gas heaters are portable but require more effort to set up. You'll also need to consider how the size and design of your patio heater will impact on your garden design.
