Summertime has always been one of the best seasons to enjoy the great outdoors, whether you do so at home or out and about. However, because of the pandemic and subsequent shifts in everyday life, many people have taken a great interest in staycations. To create the ideal setting for relaxing at home, many residents are looking into updating their homes’ outdoor living spaces.
You’re probably wondering how propane fits into all of this. The answer is pretty simple – it fits into just about every part of creating a comfortable and functional outdoor living area. From cooking out to heating the patio on cooler nights, or even heating the pool, propane can be used to fuel your summer at home in several ways.
If you’re considering elevating your outdoor living space this season, here are some propane products you’ll want to add to your plans.
Heating the Patio with Propane
The patio is usually the main gathering area and focal point of a backyard. It’s where everyone in your household comes together to enjoy weekends, entertain visitors, or just simply unwind at the end of a long day.
Even though your patio may have been hot all during the day, summer nights have a tendency to get cool. The most effective way to warm things up is to use a propane patio heater. These powerful heaters can warm up your outdoor area pretty quickly. It’s also the safest and most cost-efficient choice, so you can heat your patio without worrying about electricity costs or traditional fires that need constant attention.
Another great option is to use an outdoor fireplace or fire pit. These provide a clean, smokeless burn so you won’t have to worry about smelling like wood or having irritated eyes by the end of the night. They’re also virtually maintenance-free since there is no need to feed the fire. And last but not least, they’re a safe option for children to be around.
Gas grills are the top choice for cooking outdoors. The easy clean-up, fast cook times, temperature control, and safety features make this item ideal to add to your summer kitchen.
But it doesn’t stop there. You can also add in a propane-powered pizza oven! If you count yourself among the pizza lovers throughout the area (basically everyone in NEPA), you should consider purchasing a Big Green Egg. With great accessories like the pizza peel and deep dish baking stone, it makes for the perfect outdoor pizzeria set-up.
