How easy is to hook these up to an external piped gas outlet out side my house? Will it work with the same gas?

Also is it safe to use this with a long hose? The outlet is in a corner on the front of the house, so will need a hose all the way back to the patio.

Or should I just use an Electric one

Seems expensive, no? Bought one of these (very similar) like 10 years ago at HD. Pretty sure it was like $80 at the time. Now I know it's 2020 now but double the price and it's considered a deal? Ouch.

Unless this is for two of them?

This particular one uses 20lb propane tank. Most likely not compatible with natural gas.

You summed it up with "2020"

Check out the cost of raw lumber since everyone is doing covid projects. How about the cost of sanitary products?

With winter coming up, some people still want to have friends over in the yard without freezing their toes off. The industry knows that. Supply, demand.

Is it natural gas? Maybe look into the natural gas<->propane conversion kits.

Thanks. Another stupid question, but how long would a 20lb tank last roughly? Do they last a while?

Is there anything special that needs to be done to store it in winter?

A pound (not gallon) of propane has about 21,600 BTUs gross heat input.

At a high level, (21,600x20)= 432,000 BTUs capacity in a full tank.

432,000/50,000 = 8.64 hours.
This is 48,000, so 432,000/48,000 = 9. About $1.50 per hour running time based upon refills here.

Costco had it even cheaper for $149.99 after $40 off in May. Regardless it is still a good deal.

We have this patio heater. We bought it on Costco.ca about 3-4 years ago. It is very nice quality (especially compared to some other big box store units) and kicks off some good heat - we used it more this year than previous years and it was great. We bought a Classic Accessories Ravenna cover for it as well (also from costco.ca), which works really well - we keep it on all year round when we are not using it. The cover doesn't seem to be available anymore at Costco, we paid $50 for it in 2017 and it is still in perfect shape.

Make sure the wind doesn't tip it over. Dented lids are not very attractive. Yes, I'm speaking from experience.

Is this thing that much better than the one that’s 199 at Canadian tire (bond brand) aside from the electronic ignition?
Can’t imagine there’s much a difference aside from that.
Would wait but it’s back ordered now till the 24th of April bug the Canadian tire one is available for today.
