Many of our customers ask us what they need to do to replace their current wood burning or gas fireplace with one of our more modern ethanol fireplace models. Much to their surprise, our answer is “it’s quite easy.” Homes are typically built with gas fireplaces, while these are enjoyed by many there is a large market of people looking to improve their home. They want to make it more modern, more efficient and much different than the average home. This is when we come into the picture. .. If you currently have a gas fireplace and wish to replace it with a Bio Flame ethanol fireplace you simply need to ensure that the flue has been sealed off and all connections to utility or gas lines have been disconnected by a professional. Once you have the utilities disconnected and the flue sealed all that’s left is choosing which ethanol fireplace model you’d like installed. The size, shape and location of the old fireplace will all affect which new model you want to use in its place. Our advice is to look at a few different options, imagine what it will look like on a daily basis, and if you just can’t decide it’s always safe to ask an interior designer to come and take a look at your home to offer suggestions! Now, if you have a wood burning fireplace don’t worry, we haven’t forgotten about you! People with wood burning fireplaces have the opportunity to change them into ethanol fireplaces as well. Similarly to replacing a gas fireplace with an ethanol fireplace, the flue needs to be sealed off completely. Once this is done you have several options. You can take out the current fireplace mantle and completely redesign the look of your fireplace by replacing it with a modern ethanol model. Or, you can keep the design and structure of the wood burning fireplace by simply inserting an ethanol burner into the old structure. The option is yours!
