There are many ways you can make your outdoor living space more fun this summer, especially if you take full advantage of propane’s versatility. You have so many choices when it comes to making your backyard the envy of the neighborhood.
Whether you’re thinking about grills, hearths and heaters, stylish lighting or comforting outdoor heaters, propane can do that! Take a look at some of the many ways you can enjoy the great outdoors with propane by your side.
There are many reasons why propane grills are overwhelmingly the most commonly owned grills in America.
Nothing beats the clean-burning precision of a propane gas grill. Whether you cook on a simple portable or a high-tech built-in model, you’ll get the same even-cooking performance time after time, with no starter fluid smell, dangerous chemicals, or mess.
When your cookout is done, propane gives you even more advantages. Instead of having to wait an hour or more for coal embers to cool, you can simply turn off the grill, shut off the propane, and clean the grate. It doesn’t get much easier than that!
There’s nothing like gathering with family and friends around a fire pit on a cool night. Whether the kids are toasting marshmallows or you’re relaxing over a glass of wine with friends, propane makes the night more enjoyable. Propane gives you real fire and real heat with just the flip of a switch. No need to lug firewood, or wait for it to ignite. And, when you’re ready to go inside, just turn off your fire pit and that’s that. Many fire pit models have ignition systems that can be turned on and off with a smartphone.
Gas was the main source for both indoor and outdoor lighting before electricity became widely available and accepted. Today, you can get that warm glow for your patio and pathways with propane. In most cases, it’s cheaper than electricity. And it works even when the power is out. Propane-powered outdoor lights can burn for just pennies per hour, and they can be matched with almost any outdoor décor.
If you have a backyard pool or spa and don’t use a propane pool heater, it’s time to shake the outdoor shivers and enjoy your swimming pool earlier—and later–in the year. When you have a propane pool heater at your Georgia home, you can always say: “come on in, the water’s fine!”
A propane pool heater simply burns gas to warm water from the pool pump then cycles the water back into the pool. That’s why propane pool heaters are an ideal choice for in-ground and aboveground pools as well as outdoor spas. Ensure you stay warm when you get out of the pool too by adding a propane patio heater. With freestanding or wall-mounted models available, you’re sure to find a propane patio heater that meets your needs and budget – and one that will work even if the power goes out.
