Omcan makes some of the best patio heaters on the market today. And they come in several types and styles. You can get freestanding, mounted and heated table models. The selection isn’t as wide as some other brands in our lineup, but there are some unique options that you won’t find anywhere else.
Omcan’s freestanding patio heaters come in three styles: pyramid, tapered and column. Pyramid patio heaters have a triangular shape narrowing from a square base, tapered models have a heavy base with a long pole with the heating element on top, and the column models are cylindrical from top to bottom. They all have similar function and power. Other than their shape, the main difference between these two types of outdoor heaters is that pyramid heaters are generally fueled by propane or butane while the column heaters are electrical and can plug into your home’s outlets. These types of models are typical among the outdoor heater brands we reviewed.
The most unique outdoor heaters sold by Omcan are the heated table models. Most of the outdoor heater brands we reviewed offer tabletop models, AZ Patio Heaters for example, but these are quite different. Instead of a heater that sits on top of a table, the base of the table itself is a heater. This is great because they don’t take up valuable tabletop real estate and keep you warm at the same time. There are two heated patio tables available – one electric and one powered by ethanol. This is a great choice for outdoor meals.
Omcan also sells a wall-mounted patio heater. This is a good option if you don’t want your patio heater to take up a lot of space. The mounted heater made by Omcan is electrically powered with a 6.5-foot cord and includes a remote control so you can turn it on and off from a distance. You can install this outdoor heater yourself with ease and you don’t have to worry about special fuel. This type of wall-mounted heater is typical among the outdoor heater brands in our review, but it’s a nice option to have.
While it has some good options for outdoor heaters, Omcan’s selection is quite sparse. There is only one model of each style of heater – except for the heated tables, for which you have two choices. Other brands we reviewed offer dozens of models for each type of heater they sell.
Omcan’s outdoor heaters can satisfy your need to heat your patio when the temperature gets cool. It offers the standard styles of freestanding outdoor heaters, like pyramid, column and tapered, and a single mounted model. These are fine as far as they go, but they don’t go very far. The standout product is the heated tables – you won’t find those anywhere else.
