Nothing makes an outdoor space more intimate than the warmth of a fire. Having a fire pit or chiminea on your property provides a natural outdoor gathering place for evenings with friends and family. Light your fire, pull up a few benches or chairs, and let the fireside chat flow. In addition to the traditional rock-lined dirt fire pit, there are many commercial options available that are portable, easily cleaned, more environmentally friendly, and safer to use. Open flame fire pit models include tabletop and freestanding versions, and chimineas are normally free-standing. There are many different styles available to match your décor, from sleek modern to rustic country. Many models are fueled by natural gas, propane, ethanol, or gel, and so are self-contained and can be burned year round.
Why You Need a Fire Pit
There is something primal about fire that draws people around it at night. Placing a fire pit in your outdoor space provides a social gathering point that will draw guests in and make them feel instantly at home.
Heating an outdoor space instantly creates more functional room for your gatherings. A fireside area where guests can mingle and chat in comfort will provide another party zone at gatherings, another dining space at a restaurant, and even a waiting area at outdoor events hosted in cool weather. This allows hosts to provide more fun for their guests and gives restaurant owners the opportunity to use outdoor tables in cool weather and provide added ambiance to their customers’ dining experience.
A man made fire pit is more convenient than a traditional wood fueled fire pit. It is mobile, many models allowing both rotation and physical transportation so you can move the pit around your patio or to different locations on your property. Modern gas-fueled fire pits and chimineas are clean-burning and easy to turn on and off, and do not send off dangerous sparks like wood-burning fires.
How To Choose a Fire Pit
Consider your function. Do you want your fire pit to be decorative, useable for cooking, or something on the tabletop? Do you need something you can move from one place to another?
Consider the style of your space. Do you want a modern, stone-lined glass fire pit, or would you like something rustic in cast iron or copper?
Consider the fuel source. Permanent fire pits can be set up with a natural gas hard line so you never need to change out a tank. Portable fire pits usually run off of propane, ethanol, or gel. Natural gas is the cheapest in the long run but is more expensive up front because the line needs to be installed by a professional.
After you decide on a material, style, and fuel source for your fire pit for your home or business, you can start shopping. Allergy and Air has many well-respected brands to choose from, including Patina, Blue Rooster, and Outdoor Greatroom. With a constantly rotating stock, there is always something new to consider. Make Allergy and Air your source for your fire pit or chiminea purchase.
General Summary of Proposition 65
The “California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986” (more commonly referred to as ‘Proposition 65’)
was enacted to ensure that customers be properly warned when a product contains a substance known to cause cancer or
reproductive harm. The law requires the State of California to publish and maintain (annually) a list of substances
to be available to the general public. Additionally, the law requires that businesses properly notify residents of
the State of California about the presence of these substances in the products they purchase, or that may be present
in their homes, workplaces, or that otherwise may be released into the environment. The specific list contains a wide
range of naturally occurring and synthetic substances including manufacturing and construction chemicals, pesticides,
tobacco, food-additives, solvents, household products, drugs and byproducts created from a specific product usage.
You may have noticed the below warning label on our products, or on products from other manufacturers. The warning
has become increasingly commonplace and oftentimes raises questions about why the warning exists, and what it means
to a customer. The warning itself is just one of many requirements for businesses operating in and/or selling products
to customers in the the State of California. The warning does not mean that a product that includes the warning will
cause cancer or reproductive harm, but rather it simply is provided in order to educate the consumer that a substance
may exist. A large number of the substances listed under Proposition 65 have been in regular use for many years
without any documented harm to a consumer. This is due to the low concentrations and minimal exposure that actually
occurs with these substances. Those chemicals, however, have been determined by the State of California to be listed
as potentially harmful.
I don’t live in California. Why did my product include this warning?
In order to ensure compliance with Proposition 65 requirements we have determined that all products manufactured by
Living Direct Inc, including products sold under the EdgeStar, Avallon and Koldfront brands, should include the
above-referenced warning label. This labeling requirements exists for all of our products regardless of the
location / destination to which the product is ultimately sold and/or shipped.
We believe that our products, when used as designed, are not harmful and as such this warning is provided
in order to properly conform to the requirements of Proposition 65.
