An outdoor gas fireplace can create an ideal focal point for a garden or patio, which will also allow you to continue using the area when the temperature drops. It is necessary to know how to complete the installation process correctly to ensure that you can obtain heat safely.
Tools and Materials Necessary:
- Fireplace kit
Step 1 – Prepare Base
Depending on the point where the outdoor gas fire will be installed, you may find it necessary to lay concrete to create a stable base. Ensure that the area covered by concrete is large enough to accommodate the entire fireplace.
Step 2 – Assemble Fireplace
Read the instructions carefully before proceeding to build the outdoor gas fireplace. Start by securely anchoring the base to the surface, making sure that you leave room to connect the gas supply. Build the remainder of the fireplace up onto the base using the relevant tools until it is fully assembled.
Step 3 – Connect Gas Pipe Line
Once the outdoor gas fireplace is assembled, you will be able to attach the connectors for the gas supply. Turn off the gas before undertaking this step, making sure that any pipes and connectors are securely attached. Turn the gas back on and test the fireplace.
