The fire blazes and the light dances around the patio creating a magical mood making an incredible evening, even more memorable. A propane fire pit can bring an outdoor experience to life and the best part is that there are no ashes or charred wood to clean-up later. Gas fire pits can be equally attractive and they can be connected to the house’s gas lines by an experienced contractor.
There are many styles and price ranges available, making a fire pit a wonderful addition to any deck or patio. Propane fire pit tables are designed with a fire pit in the center with a table top surrounding the fire pit. This style is especially attractive for people who want additional space for beverages and food. Another elegant take on the fire pit is a fire column. These are classical columns, which have a fire pit in the center. Their slender design makes them perfect for smaller intimate settings. Propane fire pits can be installed on wooden porches or in any outside setting. They are easy to turn on by clicking a switch to light the flame and many come with multiple settings to adjust the heat to the right level. Most are designed to resemble genuine wooden fire pits, complete with rocks and realistic looking artificial wood. Similar to the propane styles, there are a number of equally attractive gas fire pits on the market. The gas fire pits come in myriad designs, from natural stone to polished metal surfaces. What is especially convenient about gas fire pits is that they run on natural gas, which is less expensive than propane and can be connected to a city gas line. This feature would not be an option if an individual does not have access to natural gas.
Remember when installing either of these fire pits to keep them at least twenty-four inches from walls and a minimum of at least seven feet distance from any over hangs. The propane and the gas fire pits are wonderful accompaniments to any outdoor living space. The difficult part is deciding, which to buy.
