Most of us have been spending more time at home than ever before in response to the pandemic, and while that was not so bad in the summertime when getting fresh air or hosting socially distanced outdoor dates in the backyard or on the patio were easy, with winter on the horizon it means cutting your living space down quite significantly—or perhaps turning to a patio heater. 

With more and more people scooping up patio heaters to extend the life of their outdoor space while in partial lockdown, it’s becoming more difficult to track down a patio heater at all—but here are a handful that we managed to find in stock. If you’re hoping to squeeze in a little more time outdoors, you might want to consider picking up one of these—and fast!
