Gas Fire Pit Kits

Fire pits provide warmth and are a cozy focal point for your backyard, patio, or deck. Gas fire pit installation typically requires multiple parts, planning, and some labor, but these fire features offer plenty of benefits to homeowners:

Benefits of gas fire pits:

  • No smoke blowing in guests’ faces
  • No smoky odor in clothes
  • Quick and easy to turn on and off
  • Little to no maintenance or cleanup required

Natural Gas vs Propane Fire Pit Kits

One of the first steps of choosing a gas fire pit is selecting a fuel type: natural gas or propane. The decision will likely come down to whether you have an existing natural gas connection in your home, in which case a natural gas fire pit probably makes the most sense. Homeowners without an existing gas line can still have one installed, but it requires hiring a professional to plumb for natural gas. Those homeowners may find it easier to use a propane fire pit that runs on portable propane tanks, though they need to be refilled periodically. The cost of natural gas and propane are relatively similar and vary depending on prices in your area, so availability and portability should be the biggest factors you consider.
