Choose Between a Gas-Burning or Wood-Burning Fire Pit

An important choice you have to make when installing a fire pit is whether to use gas or wood to make a fire. While both options are viable, they differ in many ways. We've laid down the differences between the two to help you choose between gas and wood.

  • Gas-burning fire pit: A gas-burning fire pit is more convenient as it will create a fire in just a moment. You don't have to worry about the hassle of storing and burning wood, and it's the cleaner option since gas fire pits don't create ash after you use them. You can also adjust how big the flames will be with a gas fire pit. However, routine inspection and maintenance are necessary to ensure there are no gas leaks.
  • Wood-burning fire pit: If you want the feel of a bonfire, a wood-burning fire pit is perfect for you. This fire pit creates a more outdoorsy and camping vibe, perfect for your adventurous family! Unlike gas fire pits, wood fire pits reduce the risk of an explosion. But falling embers can still cause an unwanted fire. Wood fire pits also produce ash and smoke, creating the signature scent of charred wood and the sound of a crackling fire. Plus, the smoke from burning wood is a natural bug repellant!
