Why Does Certification Matter

As the centerpiece of your backyard oasis, a fire pit is not just a source of warmth and ambiance; it’s an investment in comfort, style, and peace of mind. There are a myriad of benefits of opting for a certified Dreamcast fire pit, meticulously engineered to exceed industry standards and enhance every aspect of your outdoor living space. From top-tier safety features to timeless design and impeccable performance, our fire pits redefine outdoor leisure. On this page we will review why CSA and ETL certification is such an important feature of your fire pit. Primarily consider your family’s safety, home insurance coverage, local legal compliance, environmental impact and performance.


The ETL certification mark means our gas fire pits are certified by Intertek
Intertek is a globally recognized testing and certification organization with a reputation for rigorously evaluating products to ensure they meet stringent safety and performance standards. By obtaining Intertek certification, a fire appliance undergoes comprehensive testing, including assessments of its structural integrity, combustion efficiency, and adherence to relevant regulatory requirements. Additionally, Intertek certification signifies compliance with industry benchmarks and best practices, demonstrating the manufacturer’s commitment to quality and reliability. Ultimately, you can feel confident that you are investing in a product that prioritizes safety, durability, and overall peace of mind for your family’s outdoor enjoyment.

What Does it Take to be a Certified Appliance ?

Testing a full appliance goes beyond just a day at the lab. Safety is an ongoing commitment – not just a piece of paper.

All components of a system must meet strict standards for quality and performance. 

Each fire pit system has been rigorously tested in all weather conditions from severe winds to heavy rain for safe operation.

To maintain certification regular in-house testing must be conducted to ensure firepits maintain approved certification requirements

Our factories are visited regularly by 3rd Party Inspectors to ensure that there are no substitutions to approved critical parts and to check our operating procedures and systems.

Advantages of a Certified Fire Pit

Now that we understand the significance of Intertek certification in ensuring the safety and reliability of fire appliances, let’s delve into the specific benefits that consumers can expect when choosing a fire pit that bears the Intertek seal of approval. Let’s explore these advantages in detail:


Certified fire pits have undergone testing to ensure they meet specific safety standards. This means they are less likely to malfunction or cause accidents such as fires, explosions, or carbon monoxide poisoning.

Legal Compliance

In many areas, especially urban or densely populated regions, there are regulations governing the use of outdoor fire pits. These regulations often require that fire pits meet certain safety standards and may even mandate the use of certified appliances. Using a certified fire pit ensures compliance with these regulations, helping you avoid potential fines or legal issues.

Environmental Impact

Certified fire pits are typically designed to burn fuel more efficiently, which can reduce emissions and minimize their environmental impact. This is particularly important in areas where air quality regulations are strict or where there are concerns about pollution.


Certified fire pits are tested for performance as well as safety. This means they are likely to provide more consistent and reliable performance, such as even heat distribution and efficient fuel consumption.


Having a certified fire pit may affect your home insurance coverage, but the impact can vary depending on your insurance provider and policy. Below are some potential ways in which it could affect your home insurance. 

  • Premiums: Some insurance companies may offer discounts for homeowners who use certified appliances, including fire pits. This is because certified appliances are generally considered safer and less prone to causing accidents or damage.
  • Coverage: Insurance policies often have provisions regarding outdoor structures and appliances. Using a certified fire pit may ensure that your fire pit is covered under your policy in case of damage or liability claims related to its use.
  • Liability: If an accident were to occur involving your fire pit, such as a fire spreading to your neighbor’s property or someone getting injured, having a certified appliance could demonstrate that you took reasonable precautions to ensure safety. This might mitigate potential liability issues.

It’s important to review your insurance policy or discuss with your insurance agent to understand how using a certified fire pit may impact your coverage or premiums. While it’s generally a good practice to use certified appliances for safety and compliance reasons, the specific impact on your insurance may vary depending on your insurer and policy details.

Investing in a certified fire pit appliance provides peace of mind, knowing that you are using a product that has been tested and proven to meet safety, environmental, and performance standards. Dreamcast high performance fire pits are the ultimate choice for discerning homeowners seeking to elevate their outdoor experience to new heights.
