Have you ever been to an event in the colder months only to be wishing that you were inside in your warm bed? This is likely because a lot of the time, when an event is held outside in the winter, there are not outdoor heaters to help keep guests comfortable. This is something that is essential to the success of any party or wedding this time of year because it will be something that allows your guests to truly enjoy themselves. If you are on the fence about getting some outdoor heaters for your next event, these benefits may help you make the right decision.
Benefits of Outdoor Heaters
They add patio comfort to the event. You do not need to make any guests stand out in the cold to enjoy the next wedding or party that you plan for your clients. When people are cold, they are uncomfortable which is why making sure that they are not cold is such a priority. It may not be the thing that is at the top of your list but it should be. You can easily get some outdoor heaters through party rental and ensure that each and every guest is comfortable enough to really enjoy the event.
They also add to the ambiance. Not only will outdoor heaters actually help make sure that everyone is comfortable, but they will also help make the event that much better. Of course you want the guests to feel warm and welcome but when that happens, you can actually see the ambiance of the entire event change. People will be more likely to get onto the dance floor and let loose so the event will be that much better as a result. If you really want to add to the ambiance, you need to make sure that you have the heat to turn up the attitude and enjoyment at the event.
People will stay for the event longer. One of the worst things that can happen at the end of your event planning is that people do not stay long for your event. If they are cold during the event, they will be more likely to leave early and that is that last thing that you want. Depending on how long your event is, your event success can completely rely on how comfortable the guests are while they are there. You absolutely need to have outdoor heaters in order to ensure that everyone is comfortable.
How to Determine How Many You Need
Now that there is an understanding of how important it is to have outdoor heaters at your next party or wedding, you need to know how many you actually need to provide ample warmth for your guests. You do not want to have too few heaters and there still be a lot of cold air getting through but you also do not want to have too many and essentially make it to hot to enjoy. There is the right balance that should be used to ensure that the right temperature is reached for the duration of the event. Not only that, but you also may want to consider adding sidewalls to your tent to make sure that the warmth stays in the area. This can also help keep the wind or the rain out from under the tent, which can bring a new set of issues that you want to try to avoid. To figure out how many heaters you need, you need to know what the square footage of the space will be. As a rule of thumb, it is a good idea to have one heater for every 1500-2000 square feet. However, this can also be based on the type of heater, such as AEI Sunglow, Patio Comfort, and Ambiance, and what kind of power it has behind it. There are a lot of different sources of power that can be used including electricity and propane. Depending on the set up and what is available in the area, you may have to choose one option over another. You will want to talk to your tent rental provider to determine what they find to be the most efficient number of heaters for the tent size that you have chosen for your event.
