Pros and Cons of Out door Gas Fire PitsDoes the thought of sitting outside in your backyard at night around a fire pit with your family and friends sound relaxing and inviting to you? Bart Fireside is here to help you achieve this ideal situation with our selection of outdoor gas fire pits. While some people believe a wood-burning fire is the only kind of fire experience, many of our customers have chosen fire pits fueled by either natural or propane gas. We would like to tell you more about the pros and cons of outdoor gas fire pits to help you decide if one is right for your outdoor living space.


Low Maintenance

Probably the best advantage that a gas fire pit has over a wood-burning fire pit is the ease of use. With a gas fire pit, you will not have the necessary chores like gathering wood and cleaning up ashes afterwards.


You will never have to worry about wasting time attempting to ignite your outdoor gas fire pit. Quick and easy to light, gas fire pits produce heat instantly. And, they also can be turned immediately off. You will not have to worry about waiting for all of the embers to extinguish.

Clean Burning

Since gas fire pits are smokeless, you do not have to worry about polluting the air. Nor do you have to watch out for sparks and embers jumping from the fire.


Produce Less Heat

If you are wanting to use your fire pit as a heat source, gas fire pits do not give off as much heat as a wood-burning fire.

Fire Rings Clogging

The biggest maintenance issue with outdoor gas fire pits has to do with their fire rings, which are much like the rings on a gas top stove. According to HubPages , these rings should be periodically checked to be sure debris is not clogging these ports to the gas line.
