What To Consider When Buying A Gardeco Chiminea
When it comes to buying a Gardeco chiminea, there are a lot of things you will need to consider. Different settings require different products which is why we have included such a diverse range in our top picks. So before you commit to anything, take a look at our buying guide.
One of the first and most important things to think about is the size of your new gardeco chiminea. These appliances can come in table top form right through to giant chimineas that will heat a very large patio. Of course, you will want something that is going to provide the right level of light and warmth for the area it will be used.
As we have seen, there are some small chimineas which are great for balconies and other small spaces. But if you want to add some character to your garden, you can use these in formations for something extra special.
Gardeco chimineas are usually handmade in Mexico and are made from clay. This material is beneficial as it is very effective at radiating heat without the need for a huge fire. That said, clay is also a fragile material and will break if it is dropped or heavily knocked.
On the other hand, Gardeco offers a range of stainless steel chimineas. These are ideal for the modern garden and are incredibly durable and resistant to the elements. However, the downside is that you don’t get that traditional aesthetic which is what attracts a lot of people to these appliances in the first place.
Does It Need Assembling
For clay chimineas, the most you will have to do is to mount the appliance onto a stand. If you are buying from Gardeco, you have the benefit of a steel stand being included with most products. It is important to utilise this to keep the chiminea stable and off the ground.
However, if you opt for a stainless steel appliance, there is a chance that you may have to assemble it yourself. In most cases, this is relatively simple and the chiminea will come with everything you need to get started. You just have to be prepared for a little bit of work before you can use the appliance.
Some Gardeco chimineas come with added extras that can make using them a lot simpler. For example, many of the products are supplied with a rain lid which will do two things. Primarily, these rain lids are designed to keep water out when the chiminea is not in use. This will prevent it from pooling in the bottom where the fire goes.
Secondly, this means that, even if there is a chance shower during use, this won’t affect the integrity of the fire, meaning you can continue to enjoy your evening.
Is a chiminea better than a fire pit?
In terms of aesthetics, many people may prefer a fire pit and you get to more closely watch the flames flickering. However, where practicality and safety are concerned, a chiminea is by far the better option. Since the fire is contained, it poses much less of a safety risk and this cover also means that the fire isn’t exposed to the elements so does not need to be as closely maintained.
How long does a clay chiminea last?
Provided that you take good care of your chiminea, it could last for between 10 and 25 years. However, some maintenance is required since your appliance will be exposed to some seriously high temperatures. The best way to ensure great longevity is to apply a sealant to the chiminea which will need to be done around every three to six months, depending on how heavily it is used.
Can you burn a gardeco chiminea on a deck?
It is not advisable to use a chiminea on a decked area with nothing to protect the surface. Decking is flammable and can easily be damaged by the heat alone. There are several fire mats on the market that can be placed under the appliance for added protection.
