You might have heard about the fact that gas fire pits are cool and attractive, and that they can increase home value. All that is true, but it’s important to dig a little deeper and learn more about these fire pits before considering getting one installed on your property. So consider the following facts first, and think of asking about them when you talk to your contractor:
- If you want to sell your home, gain equity or just leave something nice for your kids and grandchildren to inherit, then installing a gas fire pit is your best choice. Gas fire pits are stylish, elegant and overall very impressive.
- Unlike other types of fire pits, gas fire pits are capable of delivering an impressive amount of heat with just a cheap investment. The natural gas they use are able to generate about 30,000 to 60,000 BTU of heat on average, and they can easily be used for both heating and cooking.
- Although propane fire pits are not safe for indoor use, they are the safest fire pits that use an open flame. If you’re bent on getting a gas fire pit with an open flame for outdoor use in close proximity to your building or home, this is by far the best and safest choice.
- Because they are dangerous and flammable, it’s important to know how and where to install a gas fire pit properly. Also, you have to know what type of fire pit you can install safely in certain areas like on your deck or close to your patio. Consult with a natural gas fire pit expert regarding these details, and make sure you always put safety first.
