Gas Fire Pit Installation
Fire pits are contained fire features that can really enhance your outdoor space. They add warmth, light and a welcoming atmosphere, making them the perfect addition to social gatherings. You have the ability to match your new gas fire pit with your properties design, choosing from a range of styles from table fire pits to more artistic pieces.
Benefits Of Gas Fire Pits
Gas fire pits offer a versatile choice with abundant design options, providing both warmth and ambient lighting for gatherings. They are excellent for roasting snacks and offer a cost-effective alternative to in-ground fire pits. Their portability minimizes the mess associated with traditional campfires.
Limitations Of Gas Fire Pits
While offering warmth and ambiance, it’s important to consider some limitations of gas fire pits. They may pose a risk of sparks and embers, have a limited heat range, and provide open flames with minimal temperature control.

Benefits Of Gas Patio Heaters

They require minimal maintenance and some models are suitable for use in garages or tents, making them adaptable heating solutions for outdoor spaces.

Gas Fire Pit & Patio Heater Maintenance
Regular maintenance for your gas fire pit and patio heater is essential to ensure consistent and dependable performance. This service helps identify and address potential issues early, ultimately saving you both time and money.
Our licensed technicians will perform a comprehensive inspection, ensuring efficient performance and safe operation. We advise scheduling an annual service for your gas fire pit and patio heater to maintain their efficiency and prevent unexpected breakdowns.
The cost of a gas fire pit can range from $300 to $3,000, depending on its design and size. Installation expenses will be determined by the project’s scale and intricacy. On average, professional installation for a 36-inch diameter fire pit ranges from $200 to $900.
In the case of patio heaters, they offer a more budget-friendly option. Initial costs range from $400 to $600, with installation expenses typically falling between $200 and $400. This includes labor, equipment, materials, set-up, and clean-up.
Gas Usage with Propane Fire Pits
When it comes to propane fire pits, the amount of gas used depends on the tank size. For smaller spaces like patios or balconies, a 20-pound cylinder is usually sufficient. On low settings, it can last 10 to 15 hours, while on high settings, you can expect 2 to 3 hours of use.
If you plan on using your fire pit frequently for long periods, consider opting for larger propane tanks to avoid frequent refills.
Gas Usage with Natural Gas Fire Pits
For natural gas fire pits, consumption varies based on usage frequency and session duration. Natural gas tends to be more cost-effective, especially if you have access to city utilities. This makes it a practical choice for regular, extended use.
Natural gas fire pits require less maintenance as there’s no need for mid-session tank refills, providing added convenience.
Gas Usage with Propane Patio Heaters
For portable propane patio heaters, a 20lb propane tank, roughly 4.7 gallons, provides up to 10 hours of operation. Filling this tank costs approximately $15 – $20, resulting in an average hourly cost of $1.5 – $2. For a typical 40,000 BTU patio heater, the estimated hourly operating cost is about $1.70.
Gas Usage with Natural Gas Patio Heaters
When using natural gas, it delivers an average of 1,030 BTUs per standard cubic foot, with slight variations from 950 to 1,050 BTUs. For a 40,000 BTU patio heater heating a 314-square-foot area, the average cost per hour using natural gas is approximately 48 cents.
Gas patio heaters are designed exclusively for outdoor use and should never be operated within an enclosed or indoor space. Proper air ventilation is imperative. Using the heater indoors can lead to potential gas leakage or fumes accumulation, posing serious risks to safety.
For areas with partial enclosures (overhead cover with more than two walls):
It is recommended that at least 25% of the total wall area be completely open and unrestricted, ideally 50%. If on a balcony, a minimum of 20% of the total wall area should remain open and unrestricted.
For spaces including an overhead cover:
Consult the ceiling material manufacturer to verify its ability to withstand the heat emitted by a gas patio heater. Ensure there is ample air circulation around the heater head, and that the reflector is positioned further away from the roofing material than advised by its manufacturer.
Given the varying circumstances, providing specific guidance for indoor use is challenging. Always prioritize safety and adhere to outdoor usage guidelines.
Gas Fire Pits
While gas fire pits are constructed to endure outdoor conditions, extended exposure to rain and snow may result in damage and reduce their lifespan. To protect your fire pit, we recommend investing in a sturdy vinyl cover and using it whenever the fire pit is not in use.
Gas Patio Heaters
Patio heaters are designed for outdoor use, but prolonged exposure to the elements can lead to wear and tear over time. For optimal longevity, it’s advised to store your patio heater indoors when not in use, especially during winter or inclement weather.
