If you've been thinking about buying a burner kit to finish your custom fire pit, here are a few things you need to keep in mind:

Are you concerned about safety?

If you want total peace of mind while operating your gas fire pit, look for burner kits that are UL-approved, and CSA tested.

Burner kits with these approvals have undergone rigorous testing to verify that they are reliable and safe heating appliances.

Check out this article for more burner safety tips.

What is your desired BTU output?

The power for gas appliances is measured in BTUs, or British Thermal Units. BTUs tell you how much heat a gas appliance will produce (the higher the BTUs, the higher the heat output).

Whether you're using an existing gas line or are going to have one installed, your gas plumber will need to know the BTU capacity of the burner to ensure the gas line can supply a sufficient amount of gas for the burner to work correctly.

If you don't take the pipe size and BTU capacity into consideration, you could end up with low flames and poor burner performance.

How much do you want to spend?

Determining your budget upfront will help you narrow down the list of fire pit burners from which you have to choose.

It will also help to influence the type of ignition system you want (manual, push-button, or automatic), and if a custom-made burner is right for you.

What fuel type do you want to use?

It should be evident which gas type you're going to use, but there are a few exceptions. If your home is supplied with Natural Gas, but you don't have a gas line already installed at the fire pit location, it may be a better option to go with a Liquid Propane tank.

On the other hand, if you don't want to worry about running out of fuel or refilling a Propane tank, Natural Gas may be the better choice.
