[phpzonsidebar title=”Golf Cart Heaters” keywords=”golf cart heater” num=”5″ country=”US” searchindex=”SportingGoods” trackingid=”heatergeek-20″ sort=”none” id=”3″]For the serious golfer, a golf cart heater can be the ultimate accessory. On a chilly morning, golf cart heaters allow you to get out on the green and stay comfortable as you drive around in the cart. If you are a golfer and plan to golf during cold weather, a heater is a must have item. For anyone thinking of purchasing a heater, here are some things you’ll need to think about before making a purchase.
How much heat will you need? It depends on how cold it will get and the setup of your golf cart. If the golf cart is covered and enclosed, then a standard heater will probably work just fine. The standard measure for heat output is in BTUs. Generally, a golf cart heater puts out about 3,000 BTUs, but there is also a range of up to 10,000 BTUs.
Types of Heaters
There are two major types of heaters – electric and propane. Propane heaters are a bit smaller and use fuel from a pressurized tank. An electric heater is more expensive to purchase, but it will generally be cheaper to run over time. Some heaters have adjustable controls, and that comes in handy for adjusting the temperature when needed. Look for a heater that also allows for easy access to the controls.
You also need to pay attention to how the heater is mounted in the golf cart. Some heaters are mounted into the cup holder, and some are mounted to the dashboard. Make sure your golf cart will be compatible with the specific mount type on the heater before you make your purchase.
Most people will want to find an economical heater, and there is definitely a range here. You can find heaters from about $60 to about $300 depending on the brand, features, type of heater, and heat output. The price will generally depend on which features you choose, but just keep in mind that prices vary. So it pays to shop around to find a good deal. You can spend as much or as little as you’d like to get the perfect heater for you.
If you’re a golfer—or looking for a gift for a golfer—a cart heater is a great purchase. A heater allows the avid golfer to go out on cold mornings or less than ideal weather. If you’re thinking about a purchase, just remember to find a heater that is compatible with your cart.
