Wood-burning fire pits have been around for ages. The simple design, the natural ambiance brought by burning wood, and a little bit of nostalgia — these are some of the reasons that this tried and tested method is still popular among many.
However, the more modern gas-burning fire pits have proven to be simpler, more efficient, and safer. It can provide you with the same benefits as a traditional fire pit with some added bonuses.
Gas-burning fire pits are easier to operate and produce no smoke, no residue, and turns off with a switch. Although it might cost a bit more time and money, the benefits of a modern fire pit from reliable manufacturers outweigh the initial cost of getting one.
A Cleaner Option
Modern fire pits that burn gas produce zero smoke. Almost 80–90% of smoke are fine particulate matter. These tiny particles can irritate your eyes, nose, throat, or even enter your lungs and create bigger problems.
Chronic inhalation of smoke can cause serious health problems, such as bronchitis, lung cancer, and heart problems. Gas-burning fire pits do away with that problem entirely. Gas also burns efficiently and leaves no residue whatsoever — reducing the need to constantly clean and maintain your fire pit.
A Different Look
There are many options to enhance the look and presentation of a gas-burning fire pit. A popular method is using fire glass crystals. These crystals come in varying colors, and they give your fire pit an ethereal and magical quality.
Matching the color of the crystals to the surrounding furnishings takes very little effort, and you can even use fire glass crystals of different colors to match the mood of your various events.
Using wood may have been the way we did things before, but it’s time to switch to something cleaner, safer, and more efficient. Get your fire pit, but get the right one.
