Cooler Temps = Outdoor Fun
Cooler temps keeping you inside? Just because the temperatures are cooler doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy being outdoors. Consider fire pits and outdoor fireplaces; they are a great way to enjoy the beauty of the cooler season.
Fall is such a beautiful blend of warm and cool and firepits enable you to enjoy the season fully. They make it easy to balance between theheat of summer and the (possibly coming) bitter cold of winter. Whether entertaining family and friends or just enjoying the peace serenity of your own backyard, these fire pits and outdoor fireplaces can keep you warm and toasty.
Sunken pits, moveable fire pits and small outdoor fireplaces are also popular.
If you want a larger, more permanent source of outdoor heat, consider building a fireplace to create warmth and beauty. Whereas fire pits have a low profile, fireplaces can be built to any height. As a result, they can provide privacy and add detail to the exterior of your home.
Some consumers opt for a ventless fireplace. Ventless fireplaces use alcohol-based cartridges composed of a clean-burning mixture of alcohol and water. Ventless give you the crackle of real fire without the smoke and hassle of building one.
While enjoying the beauty of a fire pit or fireplace, don’t forget to exercise caution.
Keep your children and pets away from the fire. This is a good rule of thumb for any open flame or heating source in your home to protect your children and pets from burns or greater accidents caused by a fire. Generally, about three feet is a safe distance to keep between the fire and all family members.
Avoid burning anything damp, which will create smoke. To avoid excess smoke inhalation while sitting around a fire, burn only dry material and use vents to direct the smoke upwards, not outwards. Smoke can cause irritation to eyes and throat.
Never leave a fire unattended in your outdoor fireplace. Supervision is key - at all times!
Do not use an outdoor fireplace or fire pit that has experienced significant rust or damage.
Keep several buckets of water or sand or a fire extinguisher nearby in case of an emergency. A fire extinguisher will also work. Be sure it is in working order and you know how to use it...before starting a fire.
