The Lava Heat Italia Alto 48,000 BTU Propane (LP) or Natural Gas (NG) upgrade Patio Heater
The Lombardy region of Italy has three main parts, its Southern plains, middle foothills, and mountainous North on the Swiss border. Completing the Lombardy collection’s full sized heaters, the Lava Heat Italia Alto patio heater will rise like an Alpine peak in your back yard. But instead of an ice-covered summit, Alto’s large cap sits above the best dome top patio heater in the industry. After years of research and development by Lava Heat Italia’s lead designer, Mr. JR Zioni, and his Italian team of talented engineers, Lava Heat Italia introduced the Alto model. This satisfying heater generates an impressive 48,000 BTUs, with a classic look that only Lava Heat could reinvent. Besides Lava Heat Italia’s signature Electroplated finishes, the ALTO Patio Heater comes with a solid steel-framed weighted base, integrated table with swing door for easy tank access, a manual “Easy Start” electronic ignition, and Lava Heat’s Safety-Tilt Switch mechanism. The ALTO Heater can be utilized all year long in the comfort of your outdoor environment. The solid steel emitter and huge one-piece reflector dome at the top allow for 360-degrees of superior infrared heat distribution. The Alto Patio Heater generates infrared radiant heat rays which heat objects rather than the surrounding air, keeping you cozy and warm by the pool, spa or on your deck long after the sun goes down. Infrared heat provides efficient, clean burning performance and uses less fuel while providing ultimate comfort. The unit can be operated for up to 10 hours with a standard 20 lb. propane tank. This unit comes partially assembled for minimized shipping costs and requires 1 AAA battery for its electronic ignition. And, of course, this CSA Certified heater has Lava Heat Italia’s signature Tilt Switch Auto-Shutoff for total safety. Commercial grade materials mean you get Lava Heat’s 5-year limited warranty. The patented latching door lower storage compartment matches Lava Heat’s Ember and Sorrento heaters for a true family of design. The Lava Heat Alto ships in standard propane configuration or is also available with Natural Gas upgrade, which includes a free 10-foot quick connect gas line ($100 Value).
