Spring Fever: Heat & Glo’s Carolina Outdoor Fireplace

Spring is officially here, which may have you dreaming about star-filled summer nights. (They are coming, we promise!) In the meantime, spring is a great time to make improvements your outdoor space, just in time for entertaining this summer.

If you’re thinking about adding a fireplace to your outdoor space, you’re not alone. Results from the most recent Residential Landscape Architecture Trends Survey revealed that 95.4 percent of respondents rated outdoor fireplaces and fire pits as highly desired outdoor features. And they’re not just talking about old fashioned campfires – outdoor gas fireplaces are gaining popularity. Homeowners love the convenience of gas, which makes it possible to enjoy a fire within seconds by pressing a remote control, and that they’re low maintenance. (There’s no ash to clean up – ever. Seriously.)

If that sounds ideal, you’re not alone there either: the folks at HGTV chose our Heat & Glo Carolina outdoor gas fireplace for the 2014 HGTV Dream Home in Lake Tahoe. It’s the focal point of the amazing outdoor oasis they created – check it out here. (And for a close-up view of the Carolina, click here.) The home is a great example of “new mountain” architecture, which takes a rustic and tradition style and gives it a modern edge. Beautiful!

With that dream home fresh in your mind, it’s the perfect time to consider a Carolina for your next backyard upgrade – and there are more than a few reasons why you’ll love it. It will fit into any plan – whether you’re remodeling a patio or building a new home – and in addition to true outdoor installations, it’s also approved for use in screened porches, gazebos and lanais. It kicks out up to 65,000 BTU and has Heat & Glo’s exclusive FireBrick™ technology, which provides 25% more heat than metal fireplaces. This is one gas fireplace that will definitely keep you and your guests cozy and warm!

Adding a Heat & Glo Carolina to your plans will create a focal point for sure, and it will also transform the space into your very own slice of heaven on starry summer nights.
