Patio Ideas for Your Backyard, Deck or Balcony - Heat

Keep the party going by transitioning from hot days to cool nights with a fiery centrepiece that keeps guests cozy and conversation lively after sunset. Gather 'round the fire!

FYI: WHICH FUEL TYPE SHOULD YOU USE AND WHY?


CHARCOAL
Charcoal is easily accessible and affordable. It lights easily and burns for a long time, supplying intense and even heat. It also gives off a "smoky" odour, which some people find pleasant. This odour can also be turned into flavour if BBQing with charcoal.

Gel
Gel fuels are the cleanest fuel option: they don't produce any by-products like smoke, soot, flying embers, or ashes. Some gel fuels do, however, produce a slight odour when burned. Also, gels are one of the safest fuel types because they do not flare up when lit.

Natural Gas
Natural gas is a relatively affordable fuel source, often costing about one-sixth the price of propane. However, it is slightly less efficient than propane as a heating source. If choosing natural gas, you'll most likely need a stationary fire pit to which you can run gas lines from your home.

PROPANE
Propane is more expensive than other fuels, but also more efficient, producing more heat per volume. Propane lights quickly, often with the turn of a knob. It produces no ash, smoke, flying embers, or soot. However, your propane tank will need to be occasionally refilled.

Wood
Wood is the most traditional fuel, and produces a good amount of heat per volume, as well as a pleasant "smoky" odour. You'll need to store your wood properly, away from the elements. Hardwoods work best as fuel, but they can be more expensive.

GREAT IDEA!

A pyramid patio heater is a sleek and sophisticated centrepiece in any outdoor area. The heater's vertical shape emits heat horizontally at multiple heights. Heat control is variable, and most pyramid heaters can be ignited with the simple touch of a button. Most importantly, sturdy metal construction ensures these heaters can withstands the outdoor elements.

!IMPORTANT: 6 OUTDOOR FIRE SAFETY TIPS

  1. The bigger the fire, the bigger the risk: a small-to-medium sized fire will suffice to keep you and your guests warm. There's no need for a big, blazing bonfire!
  2. Make sure your fire pit is at least 10 feet away from any structures (home, shed, etc.) or combustible materials (BBQ, gas lines, dry leaves, overhanging branches, etc.)
  3. Check the weather forecast before lighting an outdoor fire; windy conditions could blow embers away from the fire and cause combustion elsewhere.
  4. Check in with your municipality regularly throughout the outdoor season to find out about burn bans or burn ordinances that might be in effect.
  5. Always have a container of water or a garden hose nearby before starting a fire.
  6. If using a portable fire pit, make sure you always set it on top of a natural, fire-resistant surface like sand, brick, concrete, gravel, stone, or slate. Putting a portable fire pit on a wooden deck, for example, can be dangerous.
