Favorite outdoor propane uses
Looking to take your Upper Midwest outdoor living up a notch? Consider the following ways that propane can improve your comfort and convenience:
- Propane patio heaters – No more shivering around the pool on a cool evening. Propane patio heaters can keep you comfortable well into the fall (and early in the spring, too). From full-size standing models to portable units, the experts at Lakes Gas can help you choose the right-sized outdoor heater for your needs.
- Propane pool or spa heaters – And speaking of not shivering around the pool, nobody wants to be shivering IN the pool, either! The only thing that beats a cool dip on a hot day is a warm dip on a cool evening – or even soaking in a propane-heated spa or hot tub at the end of a long day. Enjoy your pool all year long, with the help of convenient, eco-friendly propane.
- Propane grills – If you enjoy an outdoor kitchen, a built-in grill can really take it to the next level. For grilling, nothing beats propane for precision temperature control and efficiency.
- Propane-powered lighting – Propane lights can light up your outdoor living and come in a wide variety of sizes and styles – from tiki torches to sleek, modern fixtures. And they are safe, attractive and convenient; just flick the switch and your lamps are lit. That holds true even when the power goes out, since propane doesn’t rely on the power company.
- Propane hearths – What could be better than sitting by a fire under the stars – without ever having to leave your own backyard! From fire pits to fire tables and more, propane adds flare and warmth to your outdoor space without the hassle of firewood.
