Infratech outdoor heaters are ideal for outdoor living spaces in Northern Virginia and Maryland 

Winter will be here before you know it.  If you are thinking about turning that 3 season area into a 4 season area, now is the time to make plans.  Decks, screened porches, and patios have limited use in Maryland and Virginia because of the way the DMV experiences four distinct seasons so distinctly. While superb for breezy summer days and spring barbecues, it's admittedly difficult to subject oneself to near-freezing temperatures and strong winds on a covered patio during the transitional months and still be comfortable for more than a few moments.

You’ve thought of it for years. A gorgeous deck or porch you can comfortably use year round. There are many decisions to make, but 2 major choices stand out: choosing a screening system (whether it's retractable or not ) and climate control.

This can come as a disappointment to homeowners who had been hoping to use their screened porch during parties and get-togethers over the holidays or football season.
