A fire is the perfect way to entertain guests at night, and relax after a long day. Whether roasting marshmallows or just watching the flames dance, the right fire pit in your backyard can make you feel like you’re on vacation. If you’re looking to add a fire pit to your yard, gas fire pits are the way to go.
There are a number of reasons to purchase a gas fire pit. For starters, some areas do not allow wood fires due to air quality problems and wood burning being a potential fire hazard. For places like this, a gas fire pit could be a great alternative (as long as the city or zone ordinance approves). Additionally, gas fire pits require less attention and are much easier to light, with many models even having an electric ignition.
Adjusting the flame intensity for a gas fire pit is easy. Wood fires can often be unpredictable, but with gas fires you have much more control, as all you need to do is turn the gas knob. There’s also no need to worry about keeping a supply of wood stacked and dry. All you need is a full propane tank and you’re good to go!
As with any fire, you’re going to need to take the proper precautions to stay safe. Before lighting your fire, check the hoses and valves to make sure that is doesn’t have any leaks. Be sure to place your fire pit at least 10 feet away from any structure, including covered porches and low hanging branches.
You will also want to pay attention to the wind and remove all flammable material that may be downwind from the flames. Do not start a fire if it’s too windy.
