When deciding what kind of fire pit you want to add to your back yard, there are several things to take into consideration. The sleek designs of low smoke fire pits are not only eye-catching, they are engineered to keep you, the consumer in mind.
As much as everyone loves sitting around a nice warm fire, no one likes to be smoked out or leave with their clothes and hair smelling like a bonfire. And while there is no such thing as a smokeless fire, Fire Pits like the TIKI® Brand Fire Pit have capitalized on features to help you keep the smoke to a minimum.
Here’s how a fire pit works to give you a low smoke experience.
First, the fire pit has vent holes below the top ring of the fire pit that provides extra oxygen to the fire. This additional ventilation helps burn off the remaining particles that would otherwise cause smoke.
Additionally, the stainless steel grate at the bottom of the fire pit feeds even more oxygen into the fire to keep it burning hot.
There are also vent holes at the bottom of the fire pit that pull air through and keep air moving throughout the fire pit.
Finally, the ash pan catches loose ash to keep it from rising up and flying out of the fire pit.
This basic fire pit anatomy helps keep your fire hot and the smoke low and will help you get the most out of your backyard experience.
