This electric heater has the look and feel of a lamp, so it blends into your backyard décor. These heaters are easy, no plug-in, no gas required. The soft light heat waves are more energy efficient than regular heaters, since heat waves heat objects not unused space. Great for decks, patios, screened porches and balconies. The power cord is 8 feet long (2.4m), make for a quick and easy assembly.
