Following on from our last post on the benefits of our marquee heating hire services for parties in the summer, we thought it would be a good idea to put together a list of considerations that you should make when you’re considering hiring an outdoor heater for your summer parties. Based on our experience in this field, and the questions that our customers often ask, this article should give you the information you need to make an informed decision on whether or not you need to hire a marquee heater.


1.) What time will your guests be staying until? This may seem like an obvious question, but depending on the time of year, the temperature will remain warm for varying amounts of time and so you may not need a heater if guests will be leaving during the afternoon. However, don’t be tempted to think that you don’t need to hire a marquee heater just because on some days in the summer it stays warm until late. As we all know, the weather can be unpredictable, so if your party is due to be going on past about 6pm, it’s best that you have marquee heating equipment on standby.

2.) How big is your marquee? This is something we will need to know when you hire a marquee heater, because we need to ensure that you get the right unit. The amount of air in the marquee is more important than the floor space, so make sure you get details from your marquee supplier so that we can provide you with suitable heating equipment.

3.) The final consideration to make is whether you simply need air heating, or if you’re also going to need warm running water delivered to your marquee. We provide services for the largest of parties, where on site caterers will work directly in the marquee and there may even be toilet facilities, both of which will require warm water. In this situation we would need to deliver two units for your outdoor heating hire requirements; one for atmospheric hearing and a temporary boiler to provide the warm water.
