It’s October and the time of year that most of the country starts preparing for freezing temps and snow. But since we enjoy sunshine and tolerable weather year-round, we can focus our fall energy on other things, like improving our outdoor living spaces!
A fire pit is a great investment to your home because it offers warmth, ambiance, and a place to spend time with friends and family. Nothing is quite as relaxing as enjoying an evening outside in front of a fire, and best of all we can enjoy it year-round!
There are many options for adding this into your home — wood burning, natural gas, ethanol, but our favorite is propane. We may sound biased, but we know a thing or two about the fuel.
A propane fire pit is ready to go when you are; all you need to do is flip a switch. On the same note, when you’re ready to take the party inside, you can turn it off by the same switch. No worrying about waiting for the fire to die down before you leave it.
Propane is considered to be one of the most environmentally friendly sources of energy derived from fossil fuels. It does not pollute the air or collect in a pool if released into the environment, and when it burns it does not release fumes or micro-particles that can be damaging to people and the environment.
With a propane fire pit, you can directly control the amount of gas feeding the flame. This eliminates the worry and hassle of maintaining the fluctuation of a real fire. There are also no sparks and it produces no embers, making it safe for your yard and family.
Another problem with a wood burning fire pit is the work required for preparation and cleanup. You never have to worry about not having a way to light the fire, enough wood to keep it burning, or the cleanup of the ashes. In addition, a gas flame emits no smoke, so you don’t have to worry about smoky smelling clothes.
There are many different styles of gas fire pits available that can uniquely compliment your outdoor living area. Whether you want one that resembles the real deal or a one-of-a-kind fixture with fire coming out of water, you’ll be sure to find something that suits your taste.
