Should I Choose a Gas, Wood, or Propane-Burning Fire Pit?

A fire pit can make a great addition to your property in Florida and there are a few different options that you can choose from. Gas-burning fire pits are easily maintained and are connected to your property’s gas line to supply constant fuel for practically unlimited use. Wood fire pits are a good option for people that want the campfire feel, including the smoky smell and having to supply the fire with wood. Lastly, propane fire pits, similar to gas, offer convenience and a clean burn. Propane fire pits are mobile, which means that you can use them anywhere on your property. You can’t go wrong with any of these options, so choosing one for your property all comes down to personal preference.

Gas Fire Pits

When you’re deciding what type of fire pit you want for your property, you can’t go wrong with a gas-burning fire pit. That’s because these fire pits are easy to maintain and require no cleanup. They are a permanent fixture since it connects to the gas line on your property, and therefore, you will not have to worry about refilling. Other great benefits of a gas fire pit include the fact that they:

  • Can easily be turned on and off with the press of a button
  • Will burn as long as you want them to
  • Burn cleanly, which reduces its emissions into the environment
  • Don’t produce an odor

The installation of a gas fire pit is rather extensive and requires a professional, but that hardly outweighs the results: constant warmth and fire for you and others to enjoy.

Wood Fire Pits

Wood fire pits are perfect for people who crave the outdoorsy, campfire feel. A wood fire pit is the traditional option and offers many benefits that promote participation. You need to supply it with wood, and you can either buy it or you can go out and find some yourself. Quality time can be spent looking for wood outside and then relaxing by the fire pit after all that hard work. Some benefits of wood fire pits include the fact that they:

  • Produce a natural smoky smell that many people enjoy
  • Allow you to manually start the fire, which can be rewarding
  • Can help to ward off mosquitoes

Propane Fire Pits

Propane fire pits are very similar to gas fire pits. They are easy to turn on and off, burn cleanly, and don’t emit a smell. However, they also have a few differences, including the fact that they:

  • Can be mobile and moved to different locations on your property
  • Do need to be refilled eventually, as there is a finite amount in a single tank
  • Are easier to install because they don’t need to be hooked up to a gas line

Although more maintenance is required for a propane fire pit – to ensure safety while it’s being used – it offers convenience and mobility so that you can enjoy your night by the fire anywhere.

You can get between 4-9 hours of burning on a single tank of propane, depending on the burn output.
