If you’re a Connecticut homeowner, you take pride in your home and you want to make sure it provides as much joy to you, your family, and friends as possible. That means taking care of the essentials like maintenance, but it also means treating yourself with some home improvements from time to time as well. With Connecticut’s temperate climate, one great addition to any home in the state is an outdoor fireplace. Outdoor fireplaces help turn your backyard into an open air living room, extending your yard’s usable period into the colder months and adding a beautiful conversation piece.

If you’re considering an outdoor fireplace for your Connecticut home you probably have questions. Luckily, Brothers Pool in Wallingford has answers. A leading seller of outdoor fireplaces, fire pits, outdoor furniture, and more, Brothers Pool can help get you exactly what you need to get outside and relax. Keep reading for some frequently asked questions about outdoor fireplaces, or call (203) 254-5980 to talk to one of their sales experts.

How do outdoor fireplaces work?

Outdoor fireplaces are made of stone, stucco, stainless steel, or other materials, and have a number of options for fuel. While some DIY or home-built outdoor fireplaces may use wood for fuel, most high-quality fireplaces use propane to burn more cleanly, efficiently, and reliably. It is also possible to run a natural gas line to an outdoor fireplace in some cases, but this is generally difficult.

How much do outdoor fireplaces cost?

Cost depends on a number of factors, including brand, model, installation, and more. A simple wood-burning fireplace could go for as little as a few hundred dollars, while high-quality propane models sometimes sell for several thousand. If you want an outdoor fireplace, you should be able to find something in your price range; we recommend talking some someone on our sales team to get more details.

Do outdoor fireplaces give off heat?

Absolutely! Depending on the fuel, model, and other factors outdoor fireplaces generally have BTU outputs between 30,000 and 100,000. That’s nothing to take lightly. While we wouldn’t expect anyone to be having any mid-January backyard pajama parties thanks to their fireplace, they’re perfect for making a chilly evening on the patio cozy and comfortable.
