Ener-G+ Infrared Electric Tabletop Patio Heater review: User Reviews
Wayfair customers rate the Ener-G+ Infrared Electric Tabletop Patio Heater HEA-1575J77L model very highly, giving it 4.5 stars from 14 reviews. Amazon customers are more critical about the more expensive HEA-14756LED model, giving it 3.7 out of 5 from 25 reviews.
While they praise the modern design and sturdiness of construction, negative points include very confusing assembly instructions, and the extent of the heating range. Several users emphasise that you need to sit close to it to feel the effect.
Should you buy the Ener-G+ Infrared Electric Tabletop Patio Heater?
The Ener-G+ Infrared Electric Tabletop Patio Heater will fit comfortably into a chic, modern home decor, but would feel out of place in a more rustic, traditional setting. If you have a relatively small patio or balcony it's a great choice to keep you warm while you enjoy a drink outside.
We don't recommend it if you need to heat a large patio area for more than two or three people. If you're set on electric rather than propane, within a similar price bracket you could afford multiple cheap wall-mounted electric heaters, such as the Sundate Wall-Mounted Electric Patio Heater (opens in new tab).
