Thermo Tiki Deluxe Propane Outdoor Patio Heater Review

Today I will be reviewing the Thermo Tiki Propane outdoor patio heater.  This patio heater is a good choice for those who like a classic look. The fire is mounted in the middle of the room and can be seen from all sides. It is made of steel and is about 7.5’ tall. A 20-lb. propane tank is enough to keep it going for hours.

The metal frame of the product is made from high-quality steel and aluminum. The structure can be left outside during winter. The heat can cover a 15′ circle by generating 38,000 BTU.
