Permanent Fire Pits are are fixed structures, either built in place using long lasting materials such as bricks and mortar, rocks and stone or are so heavy that moving them is not an option. You have the advantage of been able to design them to blend in with your existing patio or yard, even matching the materials already in place. The only limitations for this is your own imagination. If you don’t have the budget or building skills for elaborate projects then the easy option is to buy a pre-designed permanent fire pit kit that you can easily put together yourself. If even that is more than you fancy doing then buy a ready made fire pit.
Fire pits are something that can be used and enjoyed all the year, it is true that in the winter the use of fire pits and fireplaces has much more sense due to the fact that these tools can be used to heat up rooms and save some costs on electric or gas heating, an efficient fireplace can heat a large room, without the need to use any other energy source for heating. Fire pits can be permanent or portable. They serve as containers for barbecues, bonfires, as well as outdoor heat. They also come in different sizes, sources and accessories. Some fire pits use wood while others use natural gas. Several fire pits are also designed to roast marshmallows while others can carry out a more complicated function such as container of a bonfire during a camping adventure. In selecting a fire pit, it is best to weigh the pros and cons. If you wanted a portable fire pit, choose a lightweight fire pit that can be assembled easily. If you want a fire pit for your patio, better use a dish or bowl design. Be sure that fire pit special products like screen dome or cover are part of the package. Also consider the size of the equipment especially when you intend to use logs and coals. When you are purchasing a fire pit with grill, make sure that there is an attached tool to raise the grill.
Does it need to provide heating? If your Fire Pit needs to provide heating then Gels many not be the best choice. Gels will often crackle and pop, but the heat they provide is not as significant as wood or gas. Do you need to be able to move the Fire Pit? Some Fire Pits are portable while others are a little more cumbersome. If you are looking for a portable Fire Pit to take camping or tailgating, a portable fire pit may be perfect. Additionally, if you like to be able to rearrange your outdoor space regularly a FirePit weighing a few hundred pounds may be a little cumbersome. Do you need to have a LP Gas, Natural Gas, Gel, or Wood FirePit? In regards to Gas, LP or Natural Gas are both options. Gel will snap, crackle and pop, but you need to purchase the Gels separately. Gels come in a canister, and we suggest carefully stirring each container (unless the box states otherwise) to ensure the mixture is evenly dispersed. NOTE: Some Gels may not fit other Gel units. With wood, well, wood is pretty easy as long as it is easy to procure. With any FirePit we suggest using a screen for safety. Would you like to be able to cook on your Fire Pit? If you would like to have your Fire Pit double as a grill , there are a number of available models for you to select from. Some look like a grill, and others are quite stylistic in shape.
By placing the fire pit away from the flow of traffic and raising the fire pit from the ground you will make it hard for anyone to accidentally walk or fall in. Choose a location for the fire pit that will reduce as much as possible the effect of smoke on neighbouring properties, or even you own or that matter. If this an issue then go with a gas burning fire pit as they do not emit smoke. If children are a factor, incorporate a barrier such as a low wall surrounding the pit that will ensure they are kept a safe distance from the flames. Some portable fire pits are designed with a protective glass or Pyrex shield. This also helps limit the wind’s affect on the flames.
