Benefits of an Outdoor Fire Table

Gas vs Propane

Fire tables are the perfect option for everyone who loves spending time outside! They extend your home and create a relaxing cozy atmosphere, making the days last longer.

Many fire tables are attractive and functional, suited both for dining and deep seating applications. However, they are much more than just an impressive centerpiece of your outdoor space. They provide light and warmth, which means you can host your friends and family even during chilly summer nights. In fact, if the weather is mild, you can use them all year round. Imagine Thanksgiving Dinner by the fire in your backyard!

Having a fire pit right outside of your home also creates the perfect opportunity to get away from technology. Instead of watching TV or playing video games, you can be spending quality time outside, whether it’s by yourself with a favorite book, or with your loved ones, chatting into the early hours. Sitting by your fire table, will be your favorite way to unwind after a long day of work!

Homecrest fire tables can be either gas or propane. They’re both equally efficient and powerful, and give off the same heat and flame.

Gas vs Propane:

When deciding which kind of fire pit is right for you, the first thing to consider is its portability.

To feed gas to your fire table, you’ll need to run a gas line that attaches to your home. Once the gas is connected, your fire table will have a constant fuel source. This is a good option if you’re looking for a more permanent fixture in your outdoor space, since you won’t be able to move it from one place to another.

Propane fire tables, on the other hand, require minimal installation, and use tanks that are small and portable, so you can set them up anywhere in your backyard / patio space (on nonflammable surfaces). You can either refill the tank as needed or get yourself a backup tank.

Adding a fire table to your outdoor space can also greatly increase the value of your home.

Homecrest fire tables offer a powerful burner, up to 60,000 BTUs, and come standard with your choice of fire jewelry, as well as a secure key, natural gas orifice and black 3/4" aluminum fire burner riser. You can choose your style from an all-aluminum construction to a rustic natural slate, and select from a wide variety of heights and sizes to compliment your outdoor seating.
