Although the summer is winding down, more and more people are using their outdoor fire pit ring in to late autumn so they can continue to enjoy the outdoors despite the impending cool, crisp weather.
A fire pit helps contain a fire so that everyone can safely enjoy the flame either in a backyard, a patio area or somewhere a little farther away from home, like a camping adventure. These designs can also be used in a covered area, such as a screened-in porch, throughout the year.
Fire pits are offered in an array of designs and can produce a flame with various fuels, depending upon the design. Typically, open-faced pits use wood to provide a flame. Because these have open tops and because they use wood, smoke is also produced. With the help of gas-fuel, though, fire pits can be turned on with just a touch of a button using liquid petroleum (LP) or natural gas (NG) fuels, making them safe for some indoor patio use.
How does the gas fuel work?
It comes down to the “crystal fire” technology: a crushed glass ember bed that contains the fire and controls its height and overall temperature. A perfect, and popular, example would be The Outdoor Great Room Company’s granite crystal fire table.
