Dimplex PUH1500

Sick of patio heaters taking up space on your table tops and bars? The Dimplex Electric Radiant Parasol Patio Heater eliminates this issue completely with a new type of design. This heater is made to attach to your patio umbrella so it remains out of the way while warming the surrounding area with its radiant heat. All you need to do is remove your umbrella from its base and slide the heater onto it then put the umbrella back, simple as that.

Review Details

The Dimplex Electric Radiant Parasol Patio Heater is the type of heater that will heat the objects around it, not the air. The great thing about this is that the heat will not burn up the oxygen in the air or dry it out. Once the objects heat up, all the warmth from those objects will surround you for optimal comfort all year around. The silent operation of the Dimplex will make you forget that you have a heater providing heat to your patio, bar, gazebo or balcony.

What We Liked

  • Radiant Heat
    Radiant heat heats the objects around the unit, not the air. This type of heat does not burn the oxygen in the air, making it more comfortable.
  • Discrete
    The fact that it attached to a patio umbrella is simply amazing. It stays out of the way while providing the perfect amount of heat.
  • Silent Operation
    No one likes a noisy heater, especially when they are trying to enjoy a nice night on their balcony or patio. This heater is silent and does not give away it's location.
  • Foldable
    If you need to fold your umbrella, the heater will fold right up with it. There is no need to take the unit off if you need to fold the umbrella.

What We Didn't Like

  • Not Cordless
    This heater may be an amazing piece of technology, but it is not a cordless piece of technology. There may be some issues as to where to plug it in.
  • May Not Fit Some Umbrellas
    Although it fits most, this heater may not fit your umbrella. Make sure it will fit before you buy it.


If you are looking for a patio heater that stays out of the way but still emits enough heat to let everyone know it exists, the Dimplex is the heater for you. The features and style of this convenient heater makes it well worth the price. It will fit almost any umbrella and match any decor you have around the space where the umbrella is. This is the perfect heater for those chilly nights outside.
