When the weather outside is frightful, a fire is so delightful. But here in Southern California, it is rare that we experience a day where residents are allowed to burn outdoor wood fires. That should not stop from you from adding a fireplace or fire pit to your backyard oasis, however. Simply opt for one of these cozy and modern smoke-free fire features.
Why Propane or Gas?
There are plenty of reasons why opting for a fire feature that is fueled by propane or natural gas is a great idea. As stated above, the number one reason is that there are plenty of rules for recreational fires in San Diego and the surrounding municipalities. In fact, the sandiego.gov website states that recreational fires are permitted unless “it is offensive or objectionable because of smoke or odor or when conditions make such a fire hazardous.”
Natural gas or propane fire features are naturally smoke-free and that also makes them very clean. They are easy to start with just the press of a button. And if your fire pit is hooked up to your home’s natural gas line, you never have to worry about depleting the fuel source.
Smoke Free Fire Features Enhance Your Outdoor Space
Here are a few examples of outdoor heating devices that add to the good looks of your backyard, patio, porch, or pool deck. We hope you will find inspiration to upgrade your outdoor space with one of these smoke free fire features to help you get more enjoyment from each season.
