Some things in life take you back to a simpler time. Fire pits not only remind us of a simpler time but bridge the gap between modern day and our ancestry. Fire, the “original” evening entertainment for thousands of years regardless of which continent you may have called home. Not only were fire pits entertainment but they also represented security and life for all human kind. In the modern day, fire pits bring the campfire experience home. Nothing says quality time quite like relaxing around a fire with your family or getting a little solitude with your favorite book.
Here at PLAC we are well versed in bringing this experience to our clients. Fire pits come in many shapes and sizes and can be made to operate with propane or natural gas burners, as well as traditional wood burning. Material choices for fire pits are also numerous and can be tailored to fit your budget and aesthetic style of your home.
Do you want a permanent installation or would you like to move it when not in use? Would you prefer the convenience of gas burning or the tradition of wood burning? If wood burning sounds most appealing, consider the placement in regards to distance from your home as well as the direction smoke is likely to travel. Think of your neighbors as well, as most do not appreciate their homes being filled with smoke.
While gas burning fixtures may lack some of the sensory experiences of the traditional wood fire, modern gas fire pits properly installed, do put out a surprising amount of heat. With careful attention to gas line sizing, flow rates and proper construction of the actual fire pit, a rather realistic flame can be achieved. There is certainly something to be said for a mess free, on demand fire pit experience. PLAC has a thorough understanding of proper gas fixture installations and we can help you avoid the pitfalls through our expertise.
We would be happy to embark on this journey back in time and we have the skill and expertise to ensure your investment will last generations.
