Living in Arizona, you may find yourself wanting to enjoy the great outdoors all year round. Sunkpak patio heaters can help make that possible! But if you’re going to invest in a gas patio heater, it’s important to do what you can to extend its life and get the most out of your investment.

Most people are willing to spend money on quality outdoor heating solutions. In fact, over $431 million was spent on outdoor heating equipment last year in the United States. Sunpak is one of the most popular patio heaters on the market because they are appealing and reliable.

This article will provide practical advice on maintaining your Sunkpak patio heater so that you can keep enjoying the warmth and comfort it brings for many years to come.

Clean The Heat Exchanger and Burner

Cleaning the burner and heat exchanger on your Sunkpak patio heater regularly is a must for extending its life. Failure to do so can result in a decrease of efficiency and an increase in carbon monoxide emissions from incomplete combustion. This can cause air quality issues and even health problems.

To properly clean the Sunkpak patio heater, use a soft brush to remove any dirt or debris from the surfaces. Then, remove the heat exchanger and inspect it for signs of corrosion. If you find any, clean it with a wire brush and apply a new layer of heat-resistant paint. Finally, reassemble the Sunkpak patio heater and check that all connections are properly tightened.

Store Your Patio Heater in a Dry and Covered Area

The Sunkpak patio heater can be an excellent way to extend your outdoor enjoyment in Arizona. However, it is important to remember to store the heater in a dry, covered area when not in use. Storing the Sunkpak patio heater in an exposed and damp location can cause it to rust and corrode, decreasing its efficiency and durability.

It’s also important to remember to shut off the Sunkpak patio heater when it is not in use and to check for any signs of wear or damage. Contact Arizona Gas Products for assistance if you notice anything that seems out of the ordinary.

Regularly Check Hoses, Connections and Fittings 

It is important to regularly check the hoses, connections, and fittings on your Sunkpak patio heater to extend its life. Due to regular use or exposure to the elements, hoses and connections can become worn over time. Checking them regularly is essential for ensuring the safety of your patio heater and preventing it from malfunctioning due to a broken connection.

Check the hoses and connections for any signs of damage, such as cracks or leaks, and replace them if needed. Additionally, ensure all the fittings are properly tightened to prevent gas leakage.
