Finding the right kind of outdoor heating solution can be harder than first anticipated. In the case of creating outdoor warmth, most of us resort to creating bon fires or traditional fire pits with soil dug from the ground and stones piled up as borders. Traditionally these are all waste of time.
If there is one thing that man is particularly passionate about, it is at making our lives easier which is why for outdoor heating, propane fire pits were born. Technically, these fire pits are just the immediate answer to make outdoor heating convenient, simpler and hassle-free.
In buying one, make sure to do a thorough quality check of the major parts of a propane fire pit. It has to have three.
Check first if the frame of the pit suits your taste and if it looks and feels sturdy enough to last for a decade perhaps. The frame of the fire pit should be durable.
Also, make sure that you have a safely crafted fire bowl. The fire bowl would usually look like an aluminum or stainless steel vessel with holes at its base. The holes should be minimal and should just be concentrated near the bottom of the bowl. This is where the fire from the burner comes out. It would be safer if the fire is confined at the bottom of the bowl and dispersed from there.
The third pointer is to check for the quality of the filler materials. These are just fake logs or lava rocks depending on the theme of the frame of the pit. These filler materials make the fire more realistically fueled by wood or coal. Ask around for the makeup of these materials and make sure to note the safety measures needed if in case one or more of these parts are damaged or malfunction.
