Invest in Your Outdoor Space

Now is the perfect time to think about and invest in your outdoor space. Whether you like to host an occasional barbecue, relax alone in the evenings by a fire, or throw neighborhood block parties, we have everything you need to add value to your yard and outdoor space at Beach Stove and Fireplace.

Planning for Your New Space

Your outdoor space should be a flat area that doesn’t collect a lot of water during wet weathers. The shape of your outdoor space may depend on the space available, walls and barriers, and plant life. You don’t want to have low-hanging trees next to a fire pit or fireplace. If you need help determining what type of fire best suits your new space, we can help! Not only do we sell the top brands in the industry, but we also build custom fireplaces and gas fire pits. Choose Beach Stove and Fireplace, and we’ll bring warmth and vibrancy to your space with a brilliant fire appliance.

Fire Pits

Fire pits are a favorite among our customers for poolside decks, garden patios, and outdoor kitchens. We specialize in custom gas fire pits, but many of our customers find they like the natural look and feel of the wood fire. We also build wood fire pits and install beautiful clay chimeneas. You can choose stylish designs and big builds for your fire pit. You can also go with a standard pit or ring, which can be safely installed on a flat surface with a bed of gravel or sand.

Fireplaces

Growing in popularity among homeowners, contractors, and property managers are outdoor fireplaces. These fireplaces are often nestled into barrier walls, built in stylish and mantels, and designed to complement the landscape, seating, and space of your outdoor kitchen or patio.

Patio Heaters and More

If you don’t need a fireplace or have too little space for a fireplace or fire pit that offers enough heat, you can invest in a patio heater. Gas and electric patio heaters offer your family and guests warmth, even in cold seasons and allow you to use your outdoor space year-round. You can choose a built-in heater that is hidden from view, a wall heater that is inconspicuous, and even an upright gas heater that burns beautifully. If heat is not the issue, you can add light to walkways, pool decks, doorways, and more by installing gas lanterns and torches.

Choose Beach Stove and Fireplace

There’s a saying in the industry: fire goes with everything. When any of our fire products are carefully chosen, professionally installed, and properly maintained, the money you spend on your home will be an investment. When choosing fire appliances for your home or property, it’s important to hire the professionals. Our customers get the best service possible through our sister company, Guaranteed Chimney Service. Choose us and we’ll make sure you are in good hands!

We Know Patio Heaters

Love the idea of being able to use your home’s outdoor oasis during all four seasons of the year? You’ve probably spent a small fortune on making that indoor/outdoor space a special place for entertaining and relaxation; it’s a shame not to use the space during the cold weather because it has no heat. If you live in the upstate New York area and have no heat or inefficient heat in your outdoor room, Beach Stove and Fireplace has a wide variety of heating options for you. Indoor or outdoor patio heating options range from portable gas to built-in infrared heaters. Also, consider heating your commercial indoor/outdoor space with a patio heater as well. Extend the opportunity for alfresco dining and entertainment (read additional revenues for your establishment) when you use patio heaters to attract and keep your customers comfortable even in cooler weather.

You may be surprised to learn that patio heaters can be as decorative as they are functional. There are wall mounted units as well as free standing heaters that look more like sculptures rather than heaters. There are many options from which to choose for both residential and commercial use. There are flush, ceiling, wall, and pole mounted units including those with controls that are both weather-proof and installed in the wall. Power options also can range from 1500 to 8000 watts.

Both electric and gas fueled heaters generate radiant heat. Gas heaters burn liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), propane, or butane. What exactly is radiant heat? The InfraredHeaters.com website explains radiant/infrared heat as:
The transfer of thermal energy in the form of electromagnetic waves. True infrared heat should have one common characteristic: that the transfer of heat is emitted or radiated from the heated object or substance. The source emits radiation at a peak wavelength towards an object. The object can absorb the radiation at some wavelength, reflect radiation at other wavelengths, and re-radiate wavelengths. It is the absorbed radiation that creates the heat within the object.

When using a radiant heater there are several precautions that must be taken especially with portable heaters. Always turn off the gas when the heater is not in use; do not alter or bypass the safety valve. It is important to use the reflector and keep the heater on a hard, flat surface away from any flammable liquids. Do not use heaters when wind conditions exceed 10 miles an hour (so that the flame does not get blown out yet the gas flow continues). If the light does go out, BE SURE TO WAIT ATLEAST 5 MINUTES BEFORE RELIGHTING.

When deciding to use an external heating element for your patio or outdoor space, it’s important to choose the right unit based on the space, intention, budget, and of course style. Purchasing the wrong heater will not only waste your money, but, more importantly will not provide the heat you need—too little heat and you are cold, too much heat and you have a fire hazard. Consult with a sales professional for assistance. When it comes to installing your heater, remember you are dealing with electricity or toxic flammable gas and it is not the time or the place to “try to save a buck”—leave it to the professionals who provide a warranty on their work.

If you are in upstate New York you have the advantage of being able to visit our showroom in Westhampton Beach. The technicians at Beach Stove & Fireplace are NFI certified. As stated the National Fireplace Institute’s (NFI) website, the need for a professional installer with the proper credentials can be summed up in two words, “public safety”. Contact us or stop by and we will share our expertise with you to ensure you have a warm and comfortable outdoor space.
