Instead of using a propane or oil-fired patio heater to warm up your patio, this parasol electric heater includes the hardware to mount on your umbrella pole, uses regular household electricity, and is less expensive to operate than a propane patio heater. Two heat settings put you in control of your comfort, ranging from 900W to 1500W. All three arms can be collapsed for easy storage when not in use. It can be used indoors as well as outdoors. This is the perfect way to easily bring the heat where ever you go.
