We are lucky to live in Wyoming. The great outdoors is all around us. The concept of outdoor living spaces is to expand the comfort of your home to the outdoors. These spaces provide you with more room to entertain, connect with nature and relax. Add some heat to your outdoor room and you can extend the time you can spend outside, that’s where Alpine Climate Control comes in.

There are many components to consider when designing your outdoor living space. Alpine can help with three of these components, but let’s review all of them to get the big picture.

Following this section are links for outdoor living space ideas as well as the manufacturers we carry so you can see the product offerings. Come visit our new showroom at 2705 Coffeen Avenue in Sheridan, where we have working examples from each of our manufacturers.

Nothing creates a better center of attention than a fire. It’s great to sit around, roast marshmallows, visit and stay warm. We can help with this. We offer products from four leading American manufacturers that include gas DIY fire pit kits and custom gas burners designed for your own fire pit by Warming Trends, prebuilt gas fire pits, fire bowls and fire tables by American Fyre Designs and The Outdoor Great Room Company.

We decided to try something unique and fun by offering a specialty grill. Everdure by heston blumenthal grills are something to talk about. They offer a line of charcoal grills starting with the Cube, a portable unit for picnics and camping. The full size Fusion and Hub include electric starters so there is no need for lighter fluid and they have a great rotisserie for creative cooking. The 4K is versatile for low and slow cooking or searing. If you want to try a new cooking experience you need to see these innovative grills!

Alpine Climate Control Infratec HeaterThe idea here is not to heat the outdoors but to keep you warm while sitting outside. This is best done with radiant heaters. Radiant heaters heat like the sun and provide warmth where it is directed. We offer portable radiant heaters by Radtec that run off a propane tank located in the base of the unit. We offer permanently mounted overhead electric radiant heaters by Infratech. They offer many sizes and styles from surface mounted wall units to flush mounted ceiling units. Our comfort consultants can assist in designing and quoting a system for your outdoor space.

Create some atmosphere and see what you are doing with additional lighting. It can be accomplished with hardwired light fixtures or a simple string of outdoor lights.

A patio on the east side of your home will get morning sun and evening shade. Think about what would make your outdoor space more comfortable. Maybe shade for the midday sun, a privacy screen or a wind block. These can be accomplished with landscaping, framed structures, umbrellas and canopies.

Alpine can help with fire tables, but the sky is the limit when it comes to outdoor furniture, from tree stumps to luxurious comfort.

Think about music to set a mood or watch an outdoor movie with the kids on a big screen TV. Games like darts, corn hole, horseshoes, volleyball and croquet are a fun pass time.


It’s exciting to think of your outdoor living space as an added room to your home. Just a few simple changes can make a big difference. Following are some links for ideas. Once you’re inspired, browse our patio products to see what brand might be the best for your home.
