Many patio heaters manufacturers offer optional accessories for their products. While standard on some models, a mobile patio heater can benefit greatly from an optional wheel kit, which mounts to the base and provides ease of movement for the user. A patio heater cover protects the heater from the elements and can therefore contribute to its lifespan. These can be found in a variety of sizes and colors and even be custom made to complement an existing color scheme. Structural and decorative mounting poles are available for certain models of heaters and there are flush mounted trim kits for a permanent installation inside a soffit or ceiling. Wall mounted controls and wireless remote controllers can be added as an optional feature on a variety of patio heater models.
