How Bromic Heaters Create Sustainable Four Season Outdoor Spaces

How Bromic Heaters Create Sustainable Four Season Outdoor Spaces

In countries like Canada, where frigid conditions in fall, winter, and spring consume most of the year, enjoying the outdoors demands a unique outlook—in both spirit and design. 

This spirit of embracing chillier weather is best captured by the Scandinavian concept of friluftsliv (free-loofts-liv), or “open air living”. Friluftsliv means getting outside at every opportunity, even in those long Nordic winters, to celebrate the restorative power of the great outdoors. It includes cross country skiing or shinny at the outdoor rink, but, perhaps more importantly, friluftsliv highlights the benefits of finding a way to do even everyday things outside, like enjoying the company of friends and family in a cozy outdoor space.

The design of all-weather patios, backyards, balconies, and rooftops in Canada requires heat, and no outdoor heating solution provides that coziness better than Bromic heaters. With custom design services and a suite of specialized product options, Bromic heaters stylishly and sustainably heat any space, helping you reap the benefits of open air living in any season, year after year.

This article will take a closer look at the design principles and products that set Bromic apart as the most effective and sustainable heating solution for year-round open air living in cold weather climates.

Connecting Outdoor Spaces and Sustainable Design

The demand for versatile outdoor living spaces is exploding. This is perhaps a necessary response to a world growing ever more fast-paced, digital, and urbanized.

Homeowners want outdoor spaces that are usable year-round. Businesses want to bring an outdoor element to their hospitality and entertainment offerings. The benefits of open air living are real, but the environmental impacts of constructing, designing, and heating outdoor living spaces are also very real. Poorly designed built environments contribute to worsening air quality, biodiversity loss, and resource depletion—ironically degrading the very things we build them to enjoy.

Fortunately, many of these environmental impacts can be minimized or eliminated through good design. Bromic Heating does so by adhering to these five essential principles of sustainable design:

  • Optimize Site Potential: Customizing units and installation to work with a space’s natural qualities. Smart site design can maximize heat efficiency while minimizing building infrastructure and material used by providing comfortable year-round outdoor living space.
  • Minimize Non-Renewable Energy Consumption: Many Bromic heaters are electric or available in an electric version. Unlike propane or natural gas outdoor heaters, they can be reliably powered by the electricity grid and renewable energy sources from the wind, sun, and hydropower. All Bromic units are thoughtfully engineered to maximize efficiency and reduce energy consumption—whatever the source.
  • Use Environmentally Preferable Products: Bromic designs its heating units to consider their full life cycle: what happens at the end of a product’s life is as important as its performance. Premium materials and durable construction ensure no compromises in performance or sustainability.
  • Enhance Indoor Environmental Quality: Open or semi-open living spaces improve airflow and Indoor Environmental Quality (EIQ). Heating units can integrate indoor and outdoor structures, which can benefit the EIQ of your home or business.
  • Optimize Operational and Maintenance Practices: The most sustainable heating unit is the one you already have. Extending its lifespan by optimizing operational and maintenance practices is arguably the most effective way to reduce the environmental impact of any product. With an extensive resource library and consulting services, Bromic strives to make this as easy as possible.
