What Is An Ethanol Fireplace Anyways?
What do you think of when you hear bio fuel fireplace, ethanol fireplace or vent-less fireplace? For many it’s a futuristic option that they don’t think pertains to their life. However, you should be thinking of one fireplace design that encompasses the benefits of bio ethanol fuel and the convenience of a vent-less, connection free fireplace that is not only affordable but a great alternative to standard fireplaces. While we won’t toot our own horn we’d like to explain exactly what an ethanol fireplace is. While these innovative fireplaces have been around for many years, people are still unsure of exactly how it is they work. Do they need outlets? Do they need vents? Can they be placed in small rooms? Do they provide heat? The questions go on and on. Let us help explain the wonders of these bio ethanol fireplaces. Ethanol fireplaces can vary in size, design and functionality but overall they have several main attributes that remain consistent. Firstly, they do not require specific venting or chutes, and they don’t need any outlets or connections to keep the flame blazing. Secondly, the heat they emit can heat a room up to 600sq.ft, which is more than the average fireplace because heat is distributed throughout the room rather than being lost through the venting. Thirdly, they can be placed in limitless areas throughout your home and hard, popular installs include; bathrooms, bedrooms, patios, and surrounding stairwells. Finally, the flame that you’ll see is not the artificial blue flame you’ll often see in gas fireplaces, it is a robust orange and yellow flame, the same flame that you would see in a wood burning fireplace.
