[Costco] Costco: Propane Patio Heater: $169.99

I noticed this patio heater featured on the Costco website as a "Hot Buy"... literally!

Bronze Patio Heather with Wheels

[QUOTE]Give your evenings the added warmth and sleek styling of this bronze patio heater. Putting out 46,000 BTU’s, this heater is sure to heat a 2.4 m x 2.4 m (8 ft. x 8 ft.) area. Featuring wheels for portability, you can place this heater anywhere you please anytime. A stainless-steel burner and grid make this patio heater easy to clean and maintain.

Features:

Colour: Bronze
46,000 BTU
Manual ignition
Stainless-steel burner and heating grid
Includes a tip-over protection safety feature
2.4 m x 2.4 m (8 ft. x 8 ft.) heating area
Weighted base for stability
Uses a standard 9.1 kg (20 lb.) propane tank (not included)
Attached wheels for portability
CSA approved
Specifications:

Dimensions (L x W x H):
46 cm x 82 cm x 221 cm
(18.1 in. x 32.3 in. x 87 in.)
Weight: 20.9 kg (46.3 lb.)
Warranty: 1 year[/QUOTE]

Seems like a good deal, as long as you're ok with the bronze colour. For me, my patio furniture is brown, so I think it'll go fine. I was toying with a natural gas version, but I like that this one has wheels and can be moved around depending on my preference.

I also noticed the same (or at least similar) unit in stainless steel is priced at $259.99 also on www.costco.ca (I do believe this one is cheaper in store at $199).

I didn't post this so we could have a discussion on global climate change. Rather, I posted it so that anyone looking for a patio heater could purchase one at this sale price.

I suggest you find another forum (or thread) to talk about the environment, granola, or whatever other things you may want.

There is a quality difference in these things. I haven't looked at these two models, but, I bought one at Rona a few years ago.

The thing was a chinese POS.

I would pay the extra for the Costco advantage, FWIW.

Do you recall the price difference for the NG version?

I looked at these a while back, my thoughts are that bronze one will likely rust, I'd go with the SS version.

I know I'm bringing up old postings.. but really?? SS would be preferred so I can place the unit outside 365/yr??

I've always wondered if I can turn this thing on while it is lightly snowing in the winter........ Anybody have any thoughts on this??

These things run (like your BBQ) in any temp. Just don't expect to be sitting under it in your t-shirt, in the snow. If you've been to Whistler, the outside bars run them all year.

I haven't been to Whistler, how is the snow there compared to the snow in Toronto? Will it be able to withstand the snowstorms? I just want to know if I can leave this unit out all year round or should I store it indoors (in the garage) when not in use?? Will it rust easily because it's bronze not stainless steel? Does this make that difference??

Can I put this on my driveway during a snow storm to melt the snow? It sure beats bringing out the snow blower. :)
