Pindo palms are rated hardy in your growing region (zone 8) so they shouldn't need any special protection this winter. I really can't advise you on your patio palms. That's a generic name for a houseplant type palm that grows outdoors during the summer and indoors in the winter months. I don't think they are frost hardy. Just to be on the safe side, I'd take them indoors during the winter months.
