firepit Austin, TX Firepits are an amazing addition to a backyard space. They immediately create a warm and cozy ambiance. Plus, what is better than spending a slightly cool Central Texas evening outside with family and friends around a fire? However, anyone and everyone who has a firepit in their outdoor living area should know exactly how to use the feature safely.

Firepit safety tips

There is no reason to not take full advantage of your home’s firepit. Just make sure you are doing so in a way that protects yourself, your family, your friends and your home. Here is how you can do that:

The different types of firepits

It may come as no surprise that there are options when it comes to firepits. You can go with your classic wood-burning firepit or, these days, you can opt for a propane-powered outdoor fire feature.

Firepits that are powered by propane can either connect directly to your house’s propane tank or they can get the fuel they need from a propane cylinder, not from burning wood.

Propane firepits don’t involve any of the loose embers, logs or smoke that come along with wood-burning fireplaces, which helps reduce some safety risks. They also keep you from breathing in smoke and particulate matter. On top of that, they are easy, simple and not complicated. When you are done with them, you simply turn off the gas. There is no need to wait for any coals to die down, clean up any ashes or deal with used logs – all things that you need to do with wood-burning firepits.
