What is a Fire Pit

Fire pits come in different sizes, shapes, and styles, ranging from fire pit tables to fire bowls. A fire pit is a pit dug in the ground containing fire; or a structure of metal, stone and brick, burning with gas. They are designed in such a way that the fire is prevented from spreading.

Types of Fire Pits

The most common form of fire pits are the ready-made ones and they are purchased in stores. However, there are home-made fire pits constructed by digging a hole in the ground, and lining it with stone, bricks, and metals.

Fuel is supplied using natural gas, propane, ethanol, wood, or charcoal. The use of wood is usually restricted because of fire bans and fume emissions. On the other hand, propane and natural gas burners are certified under American national standard (ANSI), as well as European (CE) and Canadian (CSA) standards.

The Benefits of Fire Pits

Backyard fire pits are used for many purposes which include:

  1. Warmth: A fire pit is a source of heat and can therefore be used to keep warm in a chilly weather. You can get the most heat from fire pits that use wood as source of fuel. It can also be used at night in summer for relaxation. All you need to do is to be safety conscious by positioning the fire pit far from any inflammable object. You must also make sure you extinguish the fire after you are through with the fire pit.
  2. Aesthetics: A fire pit can be used to upgrade and improve the outdoor living space. Whether it is a fire pit table, ordinary fire pit, or permanent fire pit, the elegance and beauty that a well-designed fire pit provides is always good to behold.
  3. For Cooking: Wood burning fire pits are usually the best for cooking, but not all of them can be so used. You also need extra fire pit accessories to enjoy cooking with fire pits. Gas fire pits, on the other hand, are not good for cooking. Unless otherwise specified by the manufacturer, gas fire pits should therefore not be used for cooking.
  4. Entertainment: Fire pits can be designed for outdoor gatherings and entertainments. Fire pit tables are the best to use for this purpose. You can creatively design your outdoor to be almost as functional as your living room, with entertainment equipment like sofas, television, speakers etc. along with your fire pit. Family and friends can come together outside to have fun and entertainment.
  5. Extra Outdoor Feature: Fire pits can compliment other outdoor features like fountains and swimming pools. They are particularly being used inside or beside pools.

What to Consider Before You Choose a Fire Pit

There are certain things to consider in selecting the best and safe fire pit for your home. They include the following:

  1. Community Regulations: Many communities have regulations guiding the installation of fire pits. Check for the one that applies to your area. There may be some restrictions in your area; check with city authorities or the police department before purchasing your fire pit.
  2. Permanent or Portable Installation: wood or gas burning; and the type of material to use. If you are looking for less expensive and movable fire pit, the portable type is your choice. The choice of wood burning type depends on available adequate ventilation to burn the wood, and it is also a matter of personal preference. In choosing the type of material, you need to consider resistance to rust, ability to retain heat, and the type of design you want.
  3. Type of Wood and Stone: Choose the right type of wood or stone that is comfortable for family and friends. The use of cherry wood with its pleasant smell can be amazing; coupled with the fact that it does not produce sparks like pine and other softer types of wood. Furthermore, you must avoid pressed woods, as they emit toxins.

    In the case of gas fire pits, fire glass or lava rocks are recommended. Don’t make use of river rocks or the stones you collect outside on your own. They may contain water, and when heated, the rock will explode.

  4. Location is important: The location for your fire pit should be strategically planned. The fire pit must be at least ten feet from the house (depending on city regulations). You also need to provide about a six foot diameter, so that guests may sit around the fire pit safely. You must also consider the direction of the wind in locating your fire pit. If flames and smoke are blowing on people’s face, no one will be comfortable to enjoy the warmth of the fire.
  5. Take precaution: You can maximize the enjoyment of your fire pit by taking a few extra precautionary measures. In case your fire pit is not equipped with screens to minimize the effect of sparks and ash, endeavor to purchase one for the comfort and enjoyment of your family and guests.
  6. Proper maintenance: Maintenance is essential as usage continues. If yours is a permanent fire pit, adequate drainage system must be in place to keep it dry. You can also enhance the longevity of both your portable and permanent fire pits by purchasing a cover to protect it from the elements. Furthermore, you need to regularly clean it with soap and water, using a metal brush.
