Honestly, who doesn’t love the feeling of gathering around a fire with friends and family? Your outdoor fire pit should be a place for bringing people together, laughing, and creating memories. With the installation of a fire pit, you have the ability to transform this area into your own private paradise.
If you are thinking about updating your yard, patio, or deck with this addition, it is important to consider the distinct differences between gas and wood burning fire pits. To assist you in this important decision, check out the following information and see why a gas fire pit may be the best option for your home.
1. Gas Fire Pit Safety
Montana summers are almost as infamous for their beauty as they are for their abundance of forest fires. Dry, hot conditions make wood burning fire pits a safety hazard. In fact, in many areas, it is against the law to use your wood burning fire pit during fire season, which means for most of the summer you won’t even able to enjoy this backyard feature.
Fortunately, gas burning fire pits do not create potentially disastrous sparks or hot embers, making them an ideal choice for year-round entertainment. They are also approved for use in city limits where wood burning fires are not an option. Gas fire pits make a great addition to any outdoor area as they are completely safe for use on wood decks and near patio furniture. Additionally, storing wood for a fire pit creates an ideal environment for bugs and other pests to nest in. If you value the safety of your home and surrounding areas, a gas fire pit is surely the way to go.
