Here’s what you need to know if you’re considering a gas fire pit for your home – and before choosing your model.
No Reasons Not to Install a Custom Fire Feature
5 Top Reasons to Install a Gas Fire Pit
Easy to fire up and down
Gas fire pits provide push-button spark ignitions to get the outdoor area fired up. No matches are required (though it’s an option if you prefer).
Most systems provide electronic or hot-wire ignition to start up. Turning them off is a breeze - just blow it, control it with the dial or flick a switch.
Better control over heat levels
It’s important to be able to quickly adjust the heat according to your comfort requirements - we all know how quickly the temperatures can plummet in Calgary.
Gas fire pits utilize small dials to control the amount of fuel released to the fire, which can easily lower the flame on warmer evenings but crank it up when those temperatures fall.
Traditional outdoor heating systems do not offer this level of control over the heat output.
Whichever fuel option you choose – propane or natural gas – the flame is a clean-burning one which makes it better for the environment.
There are no harmful by-products such as soot or ash produced by the fire pit, which is healthier for you, your family, and the planet.
Get the look you want
You can customize how your fire pit looks using “fillers”. These change up the appearance of the fire pit and allow you to quickly create new looks, such as lava rock, log fire, fire glass or fire crystal looks. You decide.
This is just another example of the flexibility provided by gas fire pits over traditional outdoor heating systems.

Types of Gas Fire Pits
Propane Fire Pits
All you need to fire up a propane fire pit is a standard propane tank available from any hardware store.
Position the tank near the fire pit, connect it up with the hose attachments, press the push-button spark ignition and start heating your space almost instantly. No getting your hands dirty with this option – and when you are ready to turn it off, click the switch.
Some gas fire pits are built purposely tall to conceal the propane tanks inside. When the tank is placed externally and connected via a hose, the tank can be concealed with a cover if you prefer.
Propane Fire Pits
The same natural gas supply that runs into your home can fuel your fire pit.
Make sure that a licensed technician runs a new gas line from your home or gas meter to your fire pit – don’t attempt to do this yourself.
The advantage of a natural gas fire pit is that you have a steady supply of gas so that you never need to worry about changing a tank.
