A Beautiful Outdoor Fireplace Makes Patio Season Last All Year!

Young people enjoying a summer evening with a Heat and Glo outdoor fireplace.

A Heat and Glo Outdoor Fireplace Makes Patio Season Last All Year!

As we all know, Ontario summers are short and sweet.

Sadly, we only get to experience this long-awaited season for about three months of the year. So we make the most of it!

We cram in BBQs, bonfires and campouts every weekend possible. And yet, once the season ends, it never seems to have been long enough.

That's where a Heat and Glo outdoor fireplace comes in!

With an outdoor fireplace, your patio season doesn’t have to start in June and end in September.

It can last as long as you’d like!

You can enjoy the warm blaze of your outdoor fireplace no matter the season. Whether that be a peaceful spring morning, a lively summer night or a crisp autumn evening.

You can even run your fireplace in the winter if you're up for it!

The right outdoor fireplace can create the perfect all-season oasis!


3 Reasons To Invest In Heat and Glo Outdoor Fireplace This Summer

Are you looking for the perfect spring project in 2022? This is it!

According to the ASLA, outdoor fireplaces and pits were one of the top 3 outdoor design elements in 2018.

And their popularity has only grown since then!

During the pandemic, homeowners designed their own backyard patios to avoid going out. They installed patio furniture, TVs, bars, barbecues and even outdoor fireplaces!

This allowed their patio days to not rely on anyone's schedule but their own.

You can enjoy the same freedom today with the right outdoor products.

How does an outdoor fireplace improve the visual appeal of your outdoor living space?


Fireplaces have always been a prized feature in a home. They have an incredible ability to spark romance, story-telling, laughter and joy.

One of our suppliers, Heat and Glo, wanted to hold on to this charm. So they designed their outdoor fireplaces to do just that!

With an outdoor fireplace, you can keep creating those lasting memories all year long!


The design of your outdoor fireplace is another key factor in the visual appeal of your patio.

After all, it will become the focal point!

That’s why we recommend choosing a design that fits your unique living space and home exterior.

Thankfully, outdoor fireplaces come in many shapes, sizes, finishes and features. So you're design options are endless!

Examples of Outdoor Fireplace Design Options:

  • Brick or stainless steel interiors
  • Glass media
  • Log style
  • Stone or brick surroundings

Backyard patios are the perfect space for group, family or personal use. And with the right landscaping and furnishing, you can truly make it a luxurious getaway.

Do you enjoy unwinding after a busy day? Spending quality time with your family? Or entertaining a large group of friends? All from the comfort of your own backyard? If so, an outdoor fireplace is a perfect addition.

And that leads us to our third and final point!


Creating a backyard patio scene adds a whole new dimension to your home’s entertaining space.

During the pandemic, gathering outdoors was a necessity. This made an outdoor fireplace a welcome reprieve from a video or phone call.

But they were popular long before the pandemic began too. 

Spending time with your loved ones in nature around a crackling fire has always been a luxury. And it continues to be that today!
