Purchasing Top Quality Firepits & Fire Bowls
Firepits and fire bowls are a great way to create a warm and inviting atmosphere in your garden, even during the cold winter months. Discover how to choose a top quality and long-lasting firepit with this information and some helpful top tips.
There are plenty of different styles of firepits and fire bowls from large steel firepits with intricate patterns to rustic wood burners and sleek design gas burners. No matter your preference when it comes to design there are some important details to pay attention to when it comes to choosing a long-lasting fire bowl.
One of the most popular names in fire pit design is La Hacienda. This brand is popular for their steel designs that offer unique patterns and interesting shapes. Many of these fire pits can burn both wood and coal and therefore can be ideal for toasting marshmallows round the fire with your guests. However, the disadvantage of burning these natural resources means that every time you use the fire pit you will need to chop wood or buy coal, and this can be very costly for a few hours of use.
Another big name that has recently ventured into firepit design is Nova. Nova specialises in GRC (Glass Reinforced Concrete) firepits and fire bowls which can be used as handy accessories or coffee tables when partnered with garden furniture. These firepits operate using gas and a control panel. Gas operated fire pits can be much more cost effective as a 5kg gas bottle is expected to give you a burn time of approximately 20-30 hours.
Nova’s firepits are extremely weatherproof due to the GRC material. This superior material is much more weatherproof when compared to other materials such as steel or MGO (Magnesium Oxide Concrete). GRC is not affected by condensation build up or rust like these other materials and therefore makes it long-lasting and durable when left outside.
When you’re looking to buy a gas fire bowl, we recommend looking for those with fixtures and fittings included. For example, Nova’s range includes a UK clip on gas regulator, a 2.5m hose and a high-quality stainless-steel burner, pan and ring.
Another top idea from Nova is their matching gas tank holders. Having to display an ugly gas tank can put many people off from purchasing a gas operated firepit and lead them to a wood or coal burner which can let off smoke and fumes making it unpleasant to sit around. With a gas burner you can avoid these smoky conditions and enjoy the relaxing flames in peace. So, Nova’s gas tank holders are a great way to hide the ugly gas tank from sight and perfectly match your fire pit or fire bowl.
