What To Consider When Buying A Fire Pit

Most fire pits on the market offer everything you would need, but there may be some with more suitable features than others. For this reason, we should always give each potential model the once over before committing to buying. These tips will help you source the best option for you.

Style

There are several types of fire pit and the style you choose will depend on your personal preference and the style of your garden. For a more rustic design, you might opt for a chiminea whereas those with a modern, sleek garden might prefer a more up to date design.

 

Moreover, you need to think about how you will use the fire pit. Chimineas offer a way to heat a space and are very effective but if you want somewhere that will double up as an outdoor kitchen, then they won’t make the most suitable choice. Conversely, fire pits that come with a grill are ideal for cooking sausages, steak and toasting marshmallows.

Material

It goes without saying that your fire pit needs to be heat resistant; after all, it is going to face some pretty extreme temperatures. However, fire pits come in a range of materials so you need to also think about durability and how the materials look.

 

For example, steel is a very common metal for fire pits and offers excellent durability. But it doesn’t look quite as attractive as other things such as clay which many chimineas are made from. The downside with clay, however, is that it is more likely to crack or break compared to steel or robust iron.

Fuel Type

Most modern fire pits are designed to be used with wood and coal but there are some out there that are specifically made for one or the other.

 

Wood provides a much more rustic fire and often creates a beautiful smoky aroma, especially when cooking. But the downside is that wood fires are much more difficult to start and maintain.

Placement

Before you think about parting with any money, it is essential to make sure that you have a suitable location for your fire pit. For starters, it needs to be even, if it isn’t, you will need to find a way of making it so. Moreover, it is vital that the location of the fire pit is not under the cover of an overhanging structure such as a tree or under a gazebo.

 

Fire pits come in all shapes and sizes so whether you are looking for a compact one for a small courtyard or something larger for a big decked area, you have choices. In any case, we would also advise purchasing a fire mat to prevent damage to the surface underneath.

FAQs

Are garden fire pits legal?

There are some parts of the UK that are under what is known as a smoke control area where certain fuels cannot be burned. However, this applies only to indoor fires such as a wood burning stove. Outdoor fires like those you have in a fire pit are not covered by this act. However, since your fire pit will emit a decent amount of smoke, it may be worth chatting to neighbours out of courtesy.

 

Are fire pits a good idea?

When used correctly, a fire pit is an amazing way to create a unique ambiance in your garden. They allow you to remain outdoors when the cool evening air sets in and provide a way of cooking outdoors without dragging out the gas barbecue. That said, they do come with risks and so it is crucial that, when using a fire pit, you always operate with safety in mind.

 

Do fire pits keep mosquitoes away?

There is not much else quite as annoying on a summer evening as being bitten by flying pests. However, since mosquitoes and other insects don’t like smoke, having a fire pit burning may be a good way to deter them.
