For an outdoor fire pit, the ability of the fire pit to provide sufficient warmth to keep you warm is what makes the fire pit experience and money spent on the fire pit worthwhile. Therefore buying a fire pit that is likely to provide you with sufficient warmth is key to the enjoyment of your outdoor living space. So if you’re looking to keep warm during those chilly camp nights with a propane fire pit, it is recommended to go for a fire pits with a high BTU 914Wl4P+7RL._SL1500_rating.

BTU standards for British Thermal Units which is simple terms can be defined as the heat value of fire pit fuels- propane, ethanol, natural gas or wood.  Wood of course has the highest BTU rating per pound while propane takes the lead in gases. BTU can also be described as the unit that measures the heat generated by a fire pit burner and so you see going by this definition, you can see why a high fire pit BTU rating is important.

For the most part, the higher the BTU the more the heat and taller more robust flames does hold true but only if other factors such as fire pit gas pressure are great too. So what this means is that although  the BTU rating does have an effect on heat generated, there are other factors that will also affect the heat output of your fire pit, thus a higher BTU rating does not necessarily translate into more heat generated  unless these other factors within the fire pit are also working at optimum. More details on these other factors that affect heat output and how they do so HERE.

The BTU rating of a fire pit aside, there are benefits to using a propane fire pit over a wood burning fire pit that makes the fire pit experience all the more better.  A propane fire pit allows you to enjoy everything there is to love about camp fires without all hassle that comes with wood burning fire pits.

You won’t have to smell like smoke as propane gas burns clean, and absolutely no worries about burning holes in your clothes and starting fires as a result of those dangerous flying embers.
