The longer you wait, the longer it’ll take for you to get up and go clean. You have to find rubber gloves and collect all the unburned wood pieces. What’s even more annoying is that you have to find a place to store them. Why deal with cleaning after you’ve unwinded and had a great time?
- You don’t have to worry about how much wood you need to buy. When you’re planning a party with friends and family, you don’t want to have one other thing on your list to handle. People can stay longer at your party so you might not know how much wood you want to buy. Ever have one of those spontaneous nights where you want friends to sleepover and talk all night by the fire? It can be such a hassle when you just want friends to come over and you have to run to the grocery store to grab some wood. A gas fire pit makes it so easy to plan. Turn on your fire pit, order delivery, and relax.
- You control how big or how small you want your flame to be. Being able to adjust your flame based on the weather is a perfect way for you and your guests to feel comfortable at your home. Ever been to a bonfire and the front of your body was too hot but your back was icy cold? A gas fire pit allows you to stay warm comfortably with its control system. You don’t have to fiddle around with the number of logs you should put into the pit.
- It’s much more environmentally friendly. When you’re using a gas fire pit, the flames actually produce no smoke. It’s also odorless. And, you’re also saving trees from getting cut.
- Ignition is easy. Having a fire pit in your backyard is so easy when all you need to do is turn a nob or use a key to start your fire. You don’t have to deal with pouring liquid gas onto the wood and light the fire. You can have the fire as long as you want without getting up and adding more wood into the fire.
- Fire glass actually produces more heat than real wood. Some people might assume that firewood produces more heat than fire glass, but that’s actually quite the opposite. It radiates 3-4 times more heat because of the reflective surface of the glass. The glass radiates heat and provides a constant flow.
- You don’t have to breathe in all the smoke and risk your health. Smoke can get into your eyes and can aggravate chronic heart and lung diseases. When the particles get into your eyes and respiratory system, your eyes can burn, experience runny nose, and maybe be diagnosed for bronchitis.
