What You Need To Know About Fire Pit Accessories
A large advantage of having an outdoor living space is having the ability to spend time outside with your friends and family. A deck, patio furniture, and even an outdoor kitchen can add value and ambiance to your home, but nothing compares to the time-honored tradition of congregating by the fire.
The same goes for inside your house. Nothing can replace hanging stockings over the fireplace during the holiday season or cuddling up with your loved ones next to the romantic flicker of a dancing flame. Often, our fondest childhood memories are those that involve gathering around the hearth. It is the one living room feature that brings a home together.
Be it outside or inside, the only thing that can beat a fire feature is one that requires little to no maintenance with minimal clean-up. Gas powered fireplaces and fire pits are quickly becoming the preferred method of enjoying these activities.
In order to fully utilize these fire features, you need the proper tools and fire pit accessories.
Fire Pit Accessories
A traditional fireplace will require fire pit accessories such as pokers, brushes, shovels, log lifters, and the obligatory stand. In fact, most fireplaces will have a bellow!
It’s time we all join the 21st century and leave the bellows to the blacksmiths. Modern-day gas powered fire features need none of those things. The fire is automatic and there is no soot to clean up. And the only logs that may be involved are ceramic and require no lifting – unless you want to change your design.
This is not to say that these modern devices do not need a little help to function correctly. They most certainly do. But, you can rest assured, that wrought iron and ashes will not be soiling your carpet.
Types Of Accessories
Gas powered fire features can take many shapes and forms. This means that the types of accessories they require are able to adapt to how you’d like your fire pit experience to come about.
Some homeowners prefer an outdoor pit, while others enjoy an indoor fireplace. Some like ceramic fire pit logs, others like lava rock, and others might prefer ceramic river stone or even ceramic cannonballs!
However, you choose to enjoy your fire, you’ll find that indoor or outdoor, many of the types of accessories you will find yourself needed are the same.
Electronic Ignition: Gas fire features have customarily used a standing pilot light to ignite the flames. Newer generations of gas fireplaces use an electronic ignition system, that requires electricity in order to operate. Electronic Ignition eliminates the wasted fuel of a standing pilot while providing better safety protection.
