Outdoor Fireplaces and Fuel

wood fireplace in actionWhen planning your outdoor fireplace, it’s important to choose the best fuel-type that will keep working for you year after year. A wood-burning fireplace may seem appealing right now, but after a year of buying or chopping firewood, difficult-to-light fires, and cleaning ashes, you may grow tired of it. Both gas and wood fires have their own benefits, but every household has to choose for themselves.

  • Wood – Wood fireplaces are great for homeowners who have access to firewood. Some homeowners prefer the ambiance of a crackling yellow fire and the high heat output of a wood fire. Other homeowners may dislike wood fires because of the work that it takes to light and maintains a wood fire. Wood fires require wood, kindling, and lots of work. You also have to keep feeding a wood fire to reach and maintain the desired temperature. When you’re finished with the fire, you have to put it out and routinely clean the fireplace of ashes and debris.
  • Gas – Many homeowners opt for gas when installing new appliances—even outdoor ones. Gas is the most eco-friendly option for fire products and offers many benefits that are unrivaled in other fuel-types. They are easy to install, use, and maintain. Many models have push-button ignition and shut off, consistent temperature settings, and even remote controls. Gas appliances are especially nice because you can enjoy the ambiance of a fire outside on warm nights without dealing with the high heat and smoke of a wood fire. You won’t even miss out on the look and feel of a wood fire either. Gas fireplaces are more realistic than ever, nowadays gas logs look just like real wood fireplaces.
