Pros: I have a natural gas feed going into my patio. I also have a lot of plants that need to survive the winter when it can sometimes get below freezing. Some of them are too heavy to bring inside. This heater was the perfect solution.
Because this unit is natural gas, the base is much narrower than propane heaters. This is a huge plus for small patios that need the room. It also makes this unit much more attractive.
Cons: There really are no cons, just things to consider when you purchase this. See "Other thoughts".
Other Thoughts: Here are some things to consider when you purchase this:
The first is that it comes with a short hose for the hookup, so be prepared to go to the hardware store and pick up an extension that suits your needs.
Second, make sure the hose can be placed in a no traffic area, or be protected from traffic. You do not want someone to trip over the hose and break the connection or their neck.
The third is mounting it to the patio floor. This units base is much narrower than propane heaters, so it provides brackets to bolt it to the patio. If you want to use on grass, or want it to be portable, then you will want to mount it to some type of sturdy base.
Fourth, assembly is relatively easy, but I would consider having someone help you. There are times during assembly where you may have to tilt it to access something. It is better to have someone to hold it and spot it while you work on it. I did it alone and almost dropped it once or twice.
Finally, purchase a cover for it. It is a nice looking unit and it is a shame to let it get dusty, rusted, and covered with spider webs. Do a search for "patio heater cover" and you should be able to find one for $25-40.
