Brand-by-Brand Update on Outdoor Patio Heater Availability

Posted by Alfresco Heating on Oct 28th 2021

Supply chains for outdoor patio heaters are currently disrupted worldwide by a variety of factors. This affects both our USA and international manufacturers. View the list below for availability information by brand.

AEI: See SunPak, SunGlo, Infratech; Patio Comfort

AZ: We anticipate receiving some BURN portable propane heaters and some 120 volt short-wave electric patio heaters sometime in November.

Bromic: Our distributor stocked very well for the 2021 fall season with Bromic's products, which are made in Taiwan, Thailand, and Italy. We will see if it lasts the winter. Currently available.

Calcana: Currently four weeks to ship from their Alabama plant. We stock model PH40HO in the San Francisco Bay Area for local delivery or pick up.

DCS: We don't stock this brand. Official lead time is six months.

Infrared Dynamics: See SunPak; SunGlo

Infratech: This California manufacturer is down to a 2-4 week lead time to ship, and our in-stock numbers are growing as well. Some custom items may take up to six weeks.

Outdoor Order: This brand has been most adversely affected by supply chain issues. We have not been able to get any of their four models in a year.

Patio Comfort: These Chinese portable medium-duty patio heaters are very adversely affected both by whatever is going on in the factories and the long lead times. We have not received some heaters of this brand that we ordered in January, 2021. (Written in October, 2021.) Official lead time is 20 weeks.

Schwank: This international company has a manufacturing facility in Georgia, USA. Their BistroSchwank and SupremeSchwank overhead gas patio heaters are manufactured in Canada. Their ParasolSchwank patio heaters are manufactured in Thailand, and we currently have a few left. We stock Schwank 2152s. Factory lead time on their other heaters is considered to be one week at this time.

SunGlo: Manufactured by Infrared Dynamics. They shipped a record number of heaters this year, sometimes air-freighting parts in to keep things going while other parts were stuck on containers on ships waiting off the west coast. Despite all of their efforts, back orders are deep. What we don't have in stock we have on order. Lead time is officially 20 weeks.

SunPak: Manufactured by Infrared Dynamics. They shipped a record number of heaters this year, sometimes air-freighting parts in to keep things going while other parts were stuck on containers on ships waiting off the west coast. Despite all of their efforts, back orders are deep. What we don't have in stock we have on order. Lead time is officially 10 weeks.

SunStar: If we don't have it then it's on the way. We attempt to keep the SGL35 heaters in stock for quick shipment. We don't know when the medium-duty Chinese PHS and PHJ portables will be available.

Twin Eagles: We don't stock this brand. Official factory lead time is 14 weeks.
