Tennesseans have spent a lot more time lounging in their backyard since COVID-19 entered our lives a little over a year ago. While everyone is cautiously optimistic about the end of restrictions soon as the nationwide vaccine roll-out accelerates, there’s no reason not to enhance your outdoor living opportunities in your own backyard.
So, with another spring here, why not start thinking about further ways to take advantage of all of the outdoor uses for propane? Here are a few ideas.
There are a lot of reasons propane grills are the most common grills owned in the United States. If you don’t have one, you’re missing out on a lot.
First, it’s quicker and easier than charcoal. In the time it takes to get out the charcoal, the lighter fluid, other accessories and finally get the grill fire started, your propane grill would already be grilling your burgers and hot dogs.
And, when you’re done, all you have to do is turn off the grill, shut off the propane and clean the grate. No waiting for coal embers to cool or dealing with soot and ashes. Second, propane grills offer more precise control for better grilling results. Whether you cook on a simple portable or a high-tech built-in model, you’ll get the same even-cooking performance time after time, with no starter fluid smell, dangerous chemicals, or mess.
It often gets a bit chilly when the sun goes down. With propane patio and deck heaters, you can stay outside later and extend your outdoor season to earlier in the spring and later into the fall!
With freestanding or wall-mounted models available, you’re sure to find a propane outdoor heater that meets your needs and budget – and one that will work even if the power goes out.
If you love gathering around a fire pit on a cool night, toasting marshmallows or enjoying a glass of wine with friends, propane can make that experience even better. With a fire pit, you get a real fire and real heat with propane with a flip of a switch. No messing with firewood or waiting for it to start roaring. And once you’re done, just turn it off and go inside with no worries. Many models have ignition systems that can be turned on and off with a smartphone. And unlike wood fire pits, there’s no mess to clean up.
Before electricity became widely used, gas was the common source for both indoor and outdoor lighting for homes. With propane, you can get that classic warm light to make your patio and pathways glow. In most cases, it’s cheaper than electricity and works even when the power is out. Propane-powered outdoor lights can burn for just pennies per hour, and they can be matched with almost any outdoor décor.
Enjoy a swim or a soak in your backyard spa throughout the season by investing in a propane pool heater, which will heat your pool water quickly and efficiently – and far more effectively than an electric model.
