Patio Heat Lamps

Thinking about buying a nice patio heat lamp in the US from Home Depot before we leave. They hold the small propane tanks. Any idea if the tanks in Switzerland would fit? Does anyone have a site that shows the tank sizes? I will convert the hose adaptors, as needed. Thanks

Re: Patio Heat Lamps

These external heaters are frowned upon here. They are looked upon as burning our childrens' limited fossil fuel. We prefer to dress up warmly or sit inside.

Re: Patio Heat Lamps

nevermind Sbrinz... just check with your shipping agent about having a heater shipped.. not sure if they will have issues or not.

and here is a handy link for tank size....

Re: Patio Heat Lamps

I was confused at first what you were talking about, so looked up pictures (I guess that's what I get for not clicking your link)... I've not seen anything like that here, sorry.

I have seen those fire-pit / table things here though, if you have a terrace or garden area large enough, no one is shy about burning wood here as far as I've seen.

Check Coop Bau + Hobby, Hornbach, Obi and Jumbo, whether you stick with your original idea (bring photos in case you don't speak local language well), a fire pit or an outdoor fire place, those would be the places to find those sorts of products.

Re: Patio Heat Lamps

Not sure what size bottle that takes but on the standard (like grill size) bottles you need an adapter like this



from here

Just FYI, I saw the same sort of heaters at Aldi the other day.

Re: Patio Heat Lamps

Our list of stuff to buy to place in the shipping container is growing, while the pile of stuff already purchased is getting ridiculous. Good thing we get a 20 foot container for shipment.

Re: Patio Heat Lamps

For comparison, they can be purchased at Landi for 249 chufs; 39 chufs for BIG gas (+55 initial deposit) - no expensive converters.
Turn to page 4 of this brochure.

I've also seen them in Bauhaus for about the same.

I love how they take in account that warm air sinks.
