As the weather gets colder, it’s easy to want to stay inside cuddled up on the couch, but that takes away quality time in the fresh air that you could spend with family, friends and neighbors.

One solution would be to move somewhere that receives fairly warm weather all year round. Another — much more realistic — answer is to invest in an outdoor heater for your porch or patio. The devices provide easy heat without taking away the crisp and cool autumn air we all love.

Lucky for us, Labor Day sales include some top-rated outdoor heaters with price tags we can hardly believe. Check out the sale items below:

Promising review: “I bought this and the cover as a gift for friends who entertain a lot.They LOVE it. It is attractive, well made, mobile and functional. The cover was a very pleasant surprise; heavier than it looks and fits well. I just got a lot of invites for years to come!”

An easy access door for propane tanks, built-in table and heating capabilities of the Coral Coast heater make this perfect for any large deck that regularly houses outdoor parties and cookouts.

Promising review: “Bought this for an outdoor party last Fall. It is beautiful and very stylish and puts out more than enough heat to keep everyone warm and toasty. We also had our fire pit burning for the extra ambiance. We kept the propane tank inside of it all winter to avoid tipping in case of strong winds. Definitely goes great with outdoor winter barbecue parties!”

This model of heater is so popular that it’s sold out at Wayfair — but don’t fret. Walmart’s price is even lower than Wayfair’s, so this is a steal. A stainless steel finish and a funky pyramidal design allows this appliance to be so much more than function. It’s also a focal point of any back yard.

Promising review: “Heater was easy to assemble and the heat output was good. Beautiful visuals with it turned all the way up. Solid foundation, in strong wind it didn't move.”

Walmart’s bestselling heater is simple, easy-to-use and wallet friendly. The stainless steel device keeps safety in mind as it includes a safety auto shut-off valve.

Promising review: “Easy to assemble, 1 hour as advertised. Really appreciated that the protective film on the stainless steel was already removed. Has already been used as the temperature here in Canada is at the freezing point. Super effective on an open patio. Great product!”

A wider build makes this heater extremely sturdy (so it’s perfect for those that have kids or animals running around the place), yet built-in wheels keep this large heater functional and mobile.

Promising review: “Love this heater. It arrived package well, all parts were there and tool to put it together & beautiful hammered bronze finish. I'm a woman over 50, and I put this together myself with no problems. (Once I realized the screws to attach the wheels were already in the holes). I run a dog boarding business and spend a lot of time outdoors. This heater keeps me nice and warm. Easy to operate & easy to change tanks out no tools needed.”
