FUEL: Given the right circumstances, most substances will burn or combine with oxygen in combustion, a chemical process that liberates heat. (Remember that fire is the heat and light resulting from combustion.) However, the temperature at which things will burn in fire pits, called the ignition point or kindling point, varies according to the substance. For example, the kindling point of film, nitrocellulose, is only 279 degrees Fahrenheit - not recommended for use in fire pits. For wool it is 401 degrees Fahrenheit - obviously making fire pits hard to light, and for newsprint 446 degrees Fahrenheit - perfect for fire pits. What Fuel should I use in my Fire Pit? Wood or charcoal can be used in most fire pits. Some fire pits run on gas, a great alternative. See Artistic Fire Pits for converting your fire pit to gas.
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.
A fire pit is the most basic, but also the most attractive, type of garden heater and it can be built very simply with a limited amount of DIY skill. What is a fire pit? In its simplest form, a fire pit is nothing more than a hole in the ground into which wood or coal can be placed and ignited. Most fire pits are however more involved than this and their design takes account of aesthetics and a more permanent structure. Generally some form of seating or benching, along with a hard landscaped area, are also part of most fire pit projects.
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.
