Benefits of a Gas Fire Pit vs. Wood Fire Pit

April 18, 2018 Tommy Lindquist

When deciding on the type of fire pit that best fits your outdoor room, it is important to consider all the options. With safety, convenience, and looks in mind, gas fire pits are a user-friendly solution for your backyard or patio.

Gas fire pits are faster to light than wood-burning options – perfect for instant warmth on chilly days. Thanks to the push button ignition, they quickly turn on and off to save time and energy. Gas fire pits are a simple solution for areas that prohibit burning wood, yet they still promote safety as UL listed products. Without the constant worry of feeding wood into the fire, gas fire pits are easier to control for consistent heat and eliminate unpredictable, flying sparks for increased safety. Additionally, they run on liquid propane gas or natural gas, which is clean burning. The smell of a wood-burning campfire and crackling sounds of the logs burning can be attractive, but sometimes the extra smoke can be unpredictable. Because gas fire pit tables are clean burning, they are also great for those with allergies or smoke sensitivities for the perfect smokeless fire pit option.

If you do prefer the traditional look of a wood burning fire pit, ceramic outdoor log sets are available for a realistic campfire appearance in your propane gas fire pit burner. For the perfect look and feel to complete your outdoor room, gas fire pits allow for greater customization. From tempered glass to faux wood, gas fire pits can be constructed from a variety of materials for a unique look to complement your outdoor style. With multiple shape and size options, they also accommodate a wide range of designs to fit your backyard space.
