Outdoor fire pits can be great for outdoor parties, to enhance the curb appeal of your home and to offer a unique new cooking tool that you and your friends can use on a regular basis. It is important to maintain gas fire pits safely and efficiently. Depending on the type of fire pit you have, you’ll have to think about a few key issues to cover while learning how to use it properly.
The first step is to keep track of legal codes and make sure you won’t break any laws by using your outdoor fire pit in your back yard. Every city is different, and depending on where you have it installed, the planning offices might have something else to say in regard to how your fire pit should and shouldn’t be used.
The next consideration you have to think about is the positioning of the fire pit. In ground fire pits should be placed at a safe distance away from the deck, home, wooden furniture, trees, overhangs, and so on. Also make sure you check the common wind pattern in the area to ensure that the heat from your fire pit will not be carried to anything flammable too easily.
Finally, consider how you want your fire pit to be used during a party or when you have guests over. It’s usually best to have it placed in an open flat area, so your guests can have access to it without feeling uncomfortable.
