A fire pit that utilizes wood as its fuel source could emit a lot of smoke while the pit is actively-operated. If you enjoy the ambiance of a fire pit but would like to omit smoke in its entirety, purchase a gas-powered fire pit. This addition will improve the atmosphere outdoors, provide heat, and give you a viable way to cook some of your favorite foods. 

A Kit That Utilizes Gas

A fire pit kit contains a basin, hoses, and a gas reservoir. Natural gas or propane are two fuel sources that can be utilized with this type of fire pit. If you have a natural gas source hooked up to the home that is currently used to heat your home or provide you with a means to cook food on your stove, this gas source hookup can be used in conjunction with a gas-powered fire kit.

If you do not already use natural gas, you have the option of hiring a plumber to install a natural gas apparatus that will provide you with access to the fuel you need. If you are opposed to installing this type of equipment, you can use propane to operate your new fire pit. Propane is a type of gas that can be purchased in small or large quantities. Many fuel suppliers, including gas stations, sell propane in varying quantities.

The Setup

A gas-powered fire pit needs to be set up on a flat surface. This surface can be on a parcel of land that contains dirt or on a hardscaped surface. One of the reasons that gas-powered fire pits are so well-received by homeowners and business owners is due to the omission of smoke. Those with breathing issues or allergies can enjoy the warmth that a gas-powered unit creates, without needing to worry about compromising their breathing or negatively contributing to other health issues.

A kit will contain a reservoir that could be circular, square, or rectangular in shape. This is the base of a fire pit. A pan will be included in a kit. The pan is designed to lay underneath the reservoir. This part will deflect heat and protect the surface that the fire pit is resting on. In a gas-powered fire kit, there will be tubes and other small pieces that must be assembled. The tubes will dispense the gas that is necessary to ignite the fire pit. Some gas-powered models have a button apparatus that will allow an end-user to turn on or turn off the pit immediately.
