However, those who truly value their comfort will know to look beyond the price tag and value the actual benefits that this unit comes with. Made of the highest quality components, this heater is designed in order to ensure an optimal temperature, even in a place as drafty and hard to control as the patio. Main features As we mentioned above, Lynx LHEM48-NG Natural Gas Infrared Patio Heater is made of high-quality materials.

As we mentioned above, Lynx LHEM48-NG Natural Gas Infrared Patio Heater is made of high-quality materials.

Energy Efficiency

Since the Lynx LHEM48-NG patio heater is powered by gas, it will be a lot cheaper to operate than electrical infrared heaters. Nevertheless, the infrared efficiency is not compromised in any way by the gas operation as this heater has an excellent heat convention ratio.

Design

The stainless steel design of this heater and its slim profile make it very appealing. Combine that with the Lynx signature polished highlights and you can proudly display this heater in any corner of your home. Nevertheless, you should give careful consideration to the future location of this heater and mount it in a place where it will perform best. The unit weighs 80 pounds and has the following dimensions: W: 12″, L: 49 3/32″, H: 6 1/2″.

Safety concerns

The infrared technology is generally clean, but when it is powered by gas, it is prone to certain risks. For starters, gas burning can generate toxins by products such as carbon monoxide. If the unit is not installed and handles according to its user manual, the toxic byproducts that it releases can lead to serious injuries. Needless to say, you should never leave children unsupervised in the same room as a gas powered appliance. Furthermore, this unit should never be used in an enclosed space. We advise you to carefully read the user manual before attempting to install or operate this unit and to place it as far as possible from combustible elements.

Ease of use

Lynx LHEM48-NG is very easy to use but it should only be installed by gas appliance professionals. The wall mounted switch is ideal for those times when you misplace the remote control. However, the remote control offers access to settings other than high-low and on-off. For a convenient use, the unit can be adjusted from 10″ to 18″.

Durability

For a $2000 price, one expects this heater to deliver quality above anything else. As we mentioned above, the product is made of durable components and it is meant to provide the users with many years of comfort. The heater is weatherproof and can be operated through mild winds and storms. Nevertheless, placing the heater in a less exposed location will prolong its life greatly.
