For traditional fire heaters, you can’t go wrong with the Dancook Fireplace. Yes, it’s pricey for a fire pit, but it looks amazing and is built to last. For an electric heater, our vote goes to La Hacienda Carbon Fibre Freestanding Patio Heater. And for a bargain heater, we’d recommend the IKEA Broko.
