AEI was there in 1967, marketing the first commercial patio heaters under the SUNGLO™ name. Designed in 1961 by Edwin J. Cowan, Sunglo™ heaters have grown to become the industry leading name in outdoor radiant heating. Since that time the basic design has been modified for a wide variety of uses. The Sunglo™ heater is welcomed in many resorts, hotels, restaurants, residential patios and backyards all over the world. Best of all, they are proudly made in the USA.
Outdoor Commercial Heaters
There are four basic models of the Sunglo™ heating line to provide as much flexibility in patio design as possible. For uncovered settings, the model PSA265 is the best choice for providing a permanent post mount with the option of manual, semi-automatic, and fully automatic ignition systems. Furthermore, model A242 adds versatility by providing the convenience and economy of a natural gas heater, but with the flexibility of a portable heater.
For a completely portable and self-contained appliance, model A270 propane heater can be set up almost anywhere. For covered settings, model A244 is a suspended heater that will heat the patio while leaving the floor free of obstruction.
Let our team help you design the best heating solution for your application.
Infrared or radiant energy is the most practical way to add warmth to spaces like patios, terraces, verandas, enclosed areas, or any indoor or outdoor seating where heating air cannot easily be contained and re-circulated. Now there is an eco-friendly way to turn up the ambience with Infratech electric infrared heaters. These low-profile heaters coordinate with many decor styles and offer silent operation and superior performance compared to gas, with no harmful emissions or odors.
Outdoor Commercial Heating
Infratech heaters are over 90% energy efficient, UL listed for outdoor and indoor use and are easy and inexpensive to operate. Infratech products are available in a wide variety of models and sizes, to offer you maximum efficiency, versatility, and convenience. These heaters are designed with low clearance requirements, for a clean look that creates minimal visual impact.
Protecting our environment has become a top priority in today's society. With Infratech heaters, you can enjoy your outdoor space without producing the negative environmental effects that are created by most gas-based heaters or outdoor fireplaces. Traditional gas burners are frequently less than 50% efficient and on top of that, emit carbon monoxide and other hazardous gases as a by-product of their design. By contrast, Infratech energy-efficient infrared fixtures convert over 90% of input energy directly into radiant heat, and operate for just pennies per hour.

The SunStar® GLASS Infrared heater is a two-stage 24,000 BTU to 35,000 BTU heater with featured tinted high-temperature glass which provides protection on windy days and enhances the heater’s aesthetic appeal. The heater is constructed with weather-resistant, zinc-plated materials with enhanced black hi-temperature silicone powder-coated paint in the SGL models. It is specifically designed with internal reflectors to enhance the radiant output which is totally hidden behind the tinted ceramic glass. Also available in Marine Grade Stainless Steel (MGL models), the SunStar® GLASS delivers radiant warmth directly to people at floor level first and then in the surrounding air. Unlike typical fire-based heaters which are affected by windy weather conditions that cause reduced heat output, the SunStar® GLASS maintains consistent efficiency year around. The system has been tested and proven to operate in winds up to 40 miles per hour.
The new product offers two heat settings that can be controlled with a manual 3-position switch (High/Low/Off) with the N7 SGL35 (natural gas) or L7 SGL35 (liquid propane) model or a combination of both a 3-position switch and wireless remote control (High/Low/Off) with the N10 SGL35 (natural gas) or L10 SGL35 (liquid propane) models. SunStar® models can also be installed with an angle of 0° to 60° to ensure you get maximum heat coverage.Learn More
