If you're looking to install an outdoor fireplace on your property in Nebraska, there are two common fuel options for you to consider: wood and gas. Both have their own advantages, but the choice between them ultimately depends on what matters most to you. If you're looking for a more cost-effective option, then a wood-burning fireplace is the way to go. Wood is also more traditional, so if tradition is important to you, this is the better option. However, if convenience is important to you, then a gas fireplace will be your best bet. Gas fireplaces are easier to start up, provide instant heat, and don't require as much maintenance compared to wood-burning ones. They are also safer because they won't emit any smoke and you don't have to worry about embers blowing away and catching anything on fire.
Wood-burning outdoor fireplaces tend to cost less than gas-burning ones.
Cost should be one of the major factors when deciding which type of outdoor fireplace you want for your outdoor living space. One thing to note about wood-burning fireplaces is that they tend to cost less than their gas-burning counterpart. That's because wood fireplaces don't require a gas line to be installed, which can be a bit involved and requires more parts and more labor, which leads to the higher price of gas-burning outdoor fireplaces. So, if you're looking for a more budget friendly option, then a wood-burning outdoor fireplace is the way to go.
Gas-burning outdoor fireplaces are more convenient to use than wood-burning ones.
Another factor that you'll want to consider when deciding whether to install a wood-burning or gas-burning outdoor fireplace on your property is how much convenience matters to you. Gas-burning fireplaces offer convenience by allowing you to turn them on and off with the press of a button and they also don't require as much maintenance compared to wood-burning ones. Wood-burning fireplaces are not nearly as convenient because you'll have to constantly monitor them to make sure they stay lit, and you'll need to perform regular maintenance such as cleaning out ashes. Also, wood-burning options require you to buy or collect wood, which can lead be inconvenient.
Consider the safety differences between gas-burning and wood-burning outdoor fireplaces.
Safety should always be at the top of your list when designing your outdoor living space. When choosing between a gas-burning or wood-burning outdoor fireplace, there are some differences in terms of safety. For gas fireplaces, you'll need to check the gas line frequently to ensure everything is working properly and no leaks are occurring. For wood-burning fireplaces, you'll need to make sure the fire is completely out before walking away from it. It's also important to make sure embers don't float away and catch anything else on fire. Overall, both of these options are pretty safe, as long as you are careful and follow proper safety guidelines.
