Short sum­mers can cause a sense of loss as the sea­son turns to au­tumn. But BBQ en­thu­si­asts, pa­tio vagabonds and bon­fire junkies need not de­spair! You can ex­tend the out­door party well into win­ter.

With a va­ri­ety of fire features there are plenty of op­tions to suit your out­door space. Here are some con­sid­er­a­tions:

A Good (Gas) Fire Pit

If you al­ready have a fire pit, then the CROSS­FIRE™ Brass Burner by Warm­ing trends is a must. This brass fire pit burner uses cut­ting-edge tech­nol­ogy to pro­duce a taller, brighter, fuller flame that re­sem­bles a nat­u­ral, wood burn­ing fire (with­out the pain of hav­ing to chop and haul wood).

How, you ask? A gas and oxy­gen mix­ture shoots out of a jet at a high ve­loc­ity as a su­per-charged flame, which keeps you warmer for longer, with­out hav­ing to do any work (or fight for a toasty, smoke-free spot near the fire).

An Out­door Heater

Let’s face it, some out­door heaters stick out like an in­dus­trial-look­ing sore thumb. How­ever, there are some pow­er­ful out­door heaters avail­able that are el­e­gant and beau­ti­ful, like the ar­ti­san fire bowl from El­do­rado Stone. Po­si­tion these strate­gi­cally through­out your out­door space and you’ll have a beau­ti­ful, warm pa­tio or deck that you can en­joy through­out the win­ter.

A Wall-Mounted Pa­tio Heater

If you’ve got young chil­dren you may not want to go with a gas fire pit be­cause, hon­estly, can you re­ally re­lax around a fire (or fire bowl) with lit­tle kids run­ning around. In­stead, try a wall-mounted pa­tio heater. Al­though most com­monly used at restau­rants, you can find out­door heaters de­signed for your cov­ered pa­tio, bal­cony, or deck and these can be in­stalled high enough that the kids will stay safe and warm.

Elec­tric Lamp Pa­tio Heaters

Elec­tric pa­tio heaters are a per­fectly safe op­tion for a screened-in porch, plus you won’t need to deal with a gas or propane tank. Sim­ply plug them into an out­let. You can find elec­tric pa­tio heaters that look like lamps, which is per­fect for any­one who has ex­tended their liv­ing space with an out­door room.

In ad­di­tion to these fire features you’ll need a sense of ad­ven­ture, a love of the out­doors, and don’t for­get your out­door gear. With these items in hand you’re ready to ex­tend your out­door sea­son well into win­ter.
