Some Outdoor Heating is a a fantastic way for you and your guests to enjoy your space all year round, particularly after the sun has gone down.

There are a number of popular garden heating solutions that you can use to create a focal point in your garden, whilst building a warm and relaxing place to unwind with friends and family. Within our outdoor heating range you will find electrical patio heaters, traditional clay or modern cast iron chimineas, fire pits and even torch holders!

If you are looking for an open outdoor fireplace, modern fire pit or fire basket for your outdoor space, then read on for some handy tips to help you choose the right model.

Should I choose a Firepit, fire basket or chiminea? 

Whilst all three options will provide you with warmth and an enticing area for you and your friends to gather round in the evenings, they do have their own unique features. Fire pits, fire baskets and chimineas are all freestanding, so they can be set up outside in your garden or patio. The basic design of most fire pits is a 'fire bowl;' or deep tray in which you place your charcoal or wooden logs; you will then be presented with an open flame once lit, although some firepits come with a screen. Due to the vast array of firepit designs now available, they are great for contemporary gardens and modern outdoor spaces.

Chimineas are larger and usually heavier, particularly if made out of cast iron - although this does mean they are more durable. Chimineas are generally much more traditional in their design than firepits.

Can you cook on a firepit or in a chiminea?

The short answer is yes! It is slightly more complicated to cook on a firepit or inside a chiminea than a classic barbecue, however there is no reason you cannot cook delicious food over either a wood fire or charcoal. You will need a grill grate, rotisserie or tripod to hold your food safely above your fuel source. Cooking over a fire will allow you to add that smoky flavour which you cannot emulate with an electric stove.

How much maintenence does a firepit need?

Both firepits and chimineas do require maintenence from time to time, but they are much easier to clean than a traditional barbeuce. Simply remove the old ash with a shovel and scrub down the grill if you have used one. Don't forget each firepit and chiminea will require assembly. By cleaning and maintaining your firepit regularly you will avoid any rust. On each product, we will list the fuel type that can be used. Most chimineas can use any fuel type, however some firepits are limited to just wood. However - ensure you do not use a wood that gives of any resin as these can be poisonous.

We know we're bias - but we think a firepit or chiminea is a great option for your outdoor heating as they're so multifunctional. Not only do they provide an attractive, safe and warm place for you and your friends to relax in your garden throughout the summer nights but can also be used for cooking food.

Don't forget we also have a vast range of garden furniture available both in-store and online at Oldrids & Downtown so that you can relax outside this Summer!
