Most outdoor heaters are quite small, meaning you need lots of them to warm a cold space. Alfresco heaters range from 3kW to 8kW dual element models. The three-pronged approach of medium-wave infra red energy, high powered heaters and almost 100% conversion of electricity to heat means that you can be comfortable outdoors, even on the chilliest winter evenings for only a few cents per hour.
There are 6 models within the Alfresco heaters collection, ranging from the smallest 2.8kw up to the largest 8kw heater. The result is that you require fewer heaters thus saving on the initial investment. Unlike competitor’s heaters, our elements span the entire length of each heater producing greater output of targeted heat.
94% of the electricity used by the Alfresco heater is transformed into heat. With Alfresco heaters, there is superb heat production along with a warm glow of sufficient strength only to allow your customers to know that the space is heated. 98% pure aluminium reflectors boost heat output significantly while keeping running costs low. there is very little glow from the alfresco heaters unlike some of the competitors.
Many people spend lots of money on outdoor furniture and awnings to entice customers outdoors but choosing the right heater is a vital and often neglected step in this process.
Suitable for hotels, restaurants, bars and homes, our IPX4 – rated heaters can withstand the worst the weather has to offer
The use of high grade insulation means that unlike other gas and electric heaters, the rear of an Alfresco heater does not get very hot. This allows for mounting close to canvas awnings, glass and combustible materials. In fact the heaters can be recessed into ceilings or verandas.
