About Sunglo Heaters

The original Sun Glo patio heater was designed in 1961 by Mr. Edwin J. Cowan, a leading U.S. infrared heating appliance engineer. A unique demand existed in California for decorative, yet practical, gas fired heaters. Mr. Cowan pioneered and developed the circular radiant heater concept primarily for use in country clubs, hotels and restaurants.

Since that time the basic design has been modified for a wide variety of uses. The Sun-Glo heater is now found in fine restaurants, covered and out-door pools, spas, greenhouses, dining areas and, in our self-contained portable version, on residential patios.
