We have compiled some of our most asked questions to help guide you to the decision that is best for you.

Although the summer is winding down, more and more people are using their outdoor fire pit ring in to late autumn so they can continue to enjoy the outdoors despite the impending cool, crisp weather. A fire pit helps contain a fire so that everyone can safely enjoy the flame either in a backyard, a patio area or somewhere a little farther away from home, like a camping adventure. These designs can also be used in a covered area, such as a screened-in porch, throughout the year.
Gel fireplaces were introduced as ventless alternatives to wood or gas-burning fireplaces. While installation for the traditional wood or gas fireplaces can require heavy renovations to the home, gel fireplaces do not.

In addition, maintenance and upkeep are limited to routinely purchasing new cans so a flame can be produced.
