Below is a list of ten things we would rather ban before even considering the restrictions on Outdoor Heaters to help tackle climate change being debated today in the European Parliament.
Patio heaters can be an important luxury in your off-grid life. There is often not a big difference between the temperature inside or outside your shelter, especially in spring and autumn, so you spend more time outside than most. And as in Sweden, you find that an outdoor heater is a joyous thing. Anyway, they have a minimal effect on the climate, especially the MOST EFFICIENT 37,500 BTU’s FROM AMAZON US or try this Heater from Amazon UK.
Because they rely on highly finite Calor gas (butane or propane) bottles, there is littlel moral hazard. When you live off-grid you are always watching your energy consumption.
