What to Know About Propane Tank Fire Pits
Having a fire pit in your backyard gives you a place where you and your family can relax virtually every night of the year. From neighborhood barbecues, to pool parties, to after-dinner drinks with your significant other, your pit plays an integral role in entertainment, as well.
When you are searching for a new outdoor fireplace or pit for your yard, you can choose between a wood-burning solution and one that runs on propane or natural gas. Researching your options allows you to find the one that is perfect for you and your family. Propane fire pits continue to be popular choices due to their convenience, affordability, and portability.
Convenience and Quality in One
Getting a high quality fire pit is the top requirement on your list, but you also want one that is easy to maintain and use. This is where propane pits shine. You are able to get the size, shape, and style of fire pit you want, with the convenience that propane tanks bring. Rather than having to purchase and store firewood or connect to a natural gas line, you simply hook up the pit to a standard 20-lb. propane tank.
When the tank is empty, it is easy and cost-effective to exchange it for a new one at your local hardware store or gas station. In addition, you gain the ability to control the height of the flame, and turn the fire on and off with ease.
Save Money Without Sacrificing Style
A myth about fire pits is that you can’t get the style you want without shelling out the big bucks. In fact, nothing could be further from the truth. You are able to select propane as your fuel type for a number of pits available from Starfire Direct, ensuring you get the exact one that will be perfect in your yard.
Buying a propane pit does more than make it easy to refuel when needed. You’ll save a large amount of upfront installation costs over natural gas pits because since you won’t need to run an expensive gas line. By filling your new pit with fire glass, you also get a visual upgrade over wood pits and don’t have to deal with the hassle of stoking the fire and cleaning up ash afterward.
Portability Gives You Infinite Options
Since propane fire pits are not reliant on a natural gas line in order to operate, many are fairly portable. This means that over time you are able to change the location of the pit from one part of your yard to another. Should you decide to move, you can bring your pit to your new home without having to reinvest in a new setup, whereas a natural gas fire pit would have to stay put.
Being able to redesign the layout of your yard on the fly opens up a number of new options when it comes to entertainment and landscaping. Propane pits are excellent for families wanting a stylish outdoor solution that is affordable and easy to maintain.
