Making your North Carolina nights warm and cozy!

Nothing creates cozy comfort for your backyard or patio quite like an outdoor propane fire pit or fireplace. You can enjoy all the warmth and ambiance of a roaring outdoor fire without having to gather wood, stoke a flame, douse embers or clean up logs and ashes.

What are the benefits of a propane fire pit?

Beyond the convenience of having an instant flame that you can turn on and off with the push of a button, propane fire pits have other undeniable selling points:

  • Heat generation: Most gas fire pits range from 30,000 to 60,000 Btus, but some go as high as 100,000 Btus. That will keep you pretty warm on a chilly fall evening.
  • Cleanliness: Propane burns incredibly cleanly, more cleanly than wood. It emits virtually no particulate matter, a known carcinogen. It also contains almost no sulfur oxide, which contributes to acid rain and exacerbates respiratory problems.
  • Safety: Propane fire pits are contained and can be turned off quickly. Conversely, wood fires emit embers and smoke, and burning logs can pop and come loose.
  • Aesthetic appeal: You can choose fire pits or outdoor fireplaces in a range of colors, sizes and shapes. You will undoubtedly find the perfect product to match your home and outdoor design.

How to choose the right propane fireplace or fire pit:

Choosing the best fire pit or outdoor fireplace might seem daunting with so many products on the market today. But it’s also a lot of fun!

When you’re beginning your search, you should look at your outdoor space to determine which size and shape will work best. Propane fire pits come in round, square, rectangular and other shapes. They also come in a variety of sizes and with different finishes.

Outdoor fireplaces often require more space and a particular placement in your yard, cabana, pool area or patio.

In addition to the physical space that your fire pit or fireplace will occupy, you also want to consider factors like:

  • How many people will gather around it?
  • How much heat you want to generate?
  • What proximity it will have to your home and other structures?
  • How much propane you are comfortable using?
