Warming Trends Crossfire Burners Review

One of the most popular gas fire pit burners on the market recently is Warming Trends Crossfire Burners. These burners are constructed of solid brass and are built to stand the test of time. If you're in the market for a gas fire pit burner, Warming Trends is a great brand to go with. Let's look at some features. Crossfire Burners are easily some of the most highly engineered fire pit burners in the entire industry—with a price tag to match. However, if you don't mind the upfront cost, a Crossfire burner may pay for itself in the long term thanks to its durable brass construction and lifetime warranty. Warming Trends can easily customize burners as well, making it easier to create a unique fire pit from scratch or retrofit an already–existing fire pit enclosure. We carry nothing but the best fire pit burners. Any burner on our site will be objectively better than the units you'll find at your local big box store. If you want the "best of the best", however, then the answer is clear: Warming Trends Crossfire Burners.   Overall Build Quality Design When ignited next to a traditional gas burner, it is immediately clear the Crossfire burner offers a unique visual appeal. The burner produces a taller, brighter, and fuller flame than its peers through a process known as the Venturi Effect. With this burner port design, rapidly moving gas pulls oxygen into the burner. This combination causes an optimal air-to-fuel ratio at the point of combustion, creating a powerful—and efficient—flame presence. Short answer? Better fire with less gas. Construction One of the biggest selling points of the Crossfire burners are their solid brass construction. Although 304 stainless steels burners will last many years if properly maintained, there will come a time when they need to be replaced. This is particularly true in coastal climates with salty air or regions with harsh winters. These problems are eliminated with brass construction. Yes, you'll pay a premium for this material, but you'll get a burner capable of easily outliving you (and likely the next generation). That's not an exaggeration—Warming Trends offers a lifetime [...]

How to Convert a Wood Fire Pit to Gas

If you've been using a wood fire pit for some time now, you probably understand just how much work it can be to keep clean, maintain a stock pile of wood, among other things. That's why many people are making the switch and putting gas fire pit burners right in their old wood fire pits! This article will guide you through the process of doing just that. Reasons to Convert to a Gas Fire Pit Wood fire pits may be simple to install, but they’re not always the best option for those looking to install a fire pit at their home. Many urban developments restrict the use of wood fire pits due to safety concerns (an uncontrolled fire can spread dangerously). Beyond that, wood fire pits require the extra hassle of always having wood on hand to burn. This requires extra storage space, and because the wood is often stored outdoors, you’ll often find it’s wet and difficult to start a fire. There’s also the issue of smoke. Though nothing smells more like fall than a nice campfire, you don’t necessarily want to smell like one all day—which is exactly what will happen if the wind is blowing in the wrong direction as you burn. Advantages of Gas Fire Pits Gas fire pits don’t have the same challenges as wood fire pits. These kits are safe, easy to ignite, and simple to install with the right knowledge beforehand. You’ll also be able to ditch the wood pile, and you and your guests won’t smell like smoke the next time you decide to gather around the fire pit at night! These are some of the biggest reasons gas fire pits have become the new go-to installation for restaurants, hotels, and backyards alike. Many wood fire pits are bought as pre-configured paver stone kits from big box stores. These make an excellent starting point for a gas fire pit. If you already have a wood fire pit installed, it only takes a few steps to convert to gas. Step-by-step: How to Convert a Wood Fire Pit to Gas Step 1: Choose Your Fuel [...]

So unless you are a Certified Gas Professional we would always recommend buying purpose-built equipment and having a professional install it. This doesn't mean you can't build a fire pit, far from it, but purchase the important parts, the tray/pan, the burner, and connection kit, then hire a professional to connect it up! With that in mind, here are 21 tips or things to consider when you are planning/building your gas fire pit: If you have constructed a tray or pan to put your burner and fire glass in, do ensure it has adequate drainage in the bottom of the tray/pan. This also applies to fire bowls. Otherwise when it rains, water will collect in the bottom of the tray/pan and rise up above the level of the holes in the burner. Worse still water could then get inside the burner. This could prove to be dangerous when you come to light up the fire pit later on. Provide plenty of drainage holes in the bottom of the pan/tray. Do not light a gas fire pit that is not throughly dry around the burner/tray. The overall structure of your fire pit should have through ventilation built into it. That means ventilation on two opposite sides at or near the bottom of the structure. The recommended minimum is a total of 36 square inches of ventilation, which is divided between [...]
