Whether you want to convert an existing wood-burning fireplace or any other type of existing fireplace, such as an electric fireplace or a gas fireplace, a grate kit makes the switch a breeze! The grate kits can also safely be used to create a tabletop fireplace or another unique fire feature.
With an ethanol fireplace, you don’t need any venting or connections. The flexible, portable design even allows you to keep using your wood-burning fireplace during the winter and switch to an ethanol fireplace that doesn’t give off as much heat during the spring and summer months. The Bio Flame grate kits give you unparalleled fireplace flexibility!
How To Convert Fireplace to Ethanol
It’s never been easier to make the switch to an ethanol fireplace!
To prepare for installing the grate kit, measure the inside of your fireplace, so you get the right size for your space. Our grate kits come in a wide range of shapes and sizes, so we are able to accommodate almost any type of fireplace conversion.
The grate kits are ideal for open fireplaces. If you have a closed fireplace or a wood-burning stove, you can install the grate kit on a level surface and use it with the stove door open. You wouldn’t want to hide away such a beautiful fire feature anyway!
Next, clean out any leftover firewood debris or ash from the existing fireplace, so the surface is level.
When it comes to installing the grate kit, you can opt to go about a fireplace conversion in one of two ways.
- Simply unpack the grate kit and place it inside the existing fireplace. That’s it! You’re ready to enjoy your new bioethanol fireplace in a matter of minutes.
- If you prefer, you can also close the flue or chimney that provided venting to your old fireplace. Ethanol fireplaces are completely ventless, so you no longer need a flue or any other connections for your new ethanol fireplace. After the flue is sealed, you place the grate kit where you’d otherwise have your logs or a fireplace log set.
Benefits of Converting a Traditional Fireplace to Ethanol
Maybe you have a wood-burning fireplace in your home that’s been sitting unused for years? Perhaps you’ve moved into a new home where a traditional fireplace doesn’t match your home decor style?
If you’re considering switching from a traditional, wood-burning fireplace, you’re not alone! While the idea of a wood-burning fireplace seems appealing, in practice this fireplace has many drawbacks, from the hassle of chopping and hauling wood and high maintenance requirements to lower indoor air quality and a safety hazard in your home.
No matter the reason why you’re looking to replace your traditional fireplace, bio ethanol fireplaces work in any space and are the ultimate, modern fireplace option. Converting your traditional fireplace to ethanol eliminates the concerns you have with your wood-burning fireplace and offers many great benefits.
Easy to Use
First and foremost, ethanol fireplaces are incredibly easy to both install and use. With our grate kits, you can use our easy fitting system to simply attach the burner to any level surface. Fill the burner with liquid bioethanol fuel
, light your fire, and enjoy!
Our ethanol burners are designed so they are easy to access and refill without any spills. All our grate kits come with the accessories you need to use your fireplace, including a lighting rod, lighter, and funnel. Our ethanol fireplace fuel is conveniently available in your local hardware store or through online vendors, including Amazon.
Cleaner and Greener
Although ethanol fireplaces produce a real fire, it’s a ventless type of fireplace. That’s because bioethanol fuel is both a clean and eco-friendly fuel source. The only byproduct of a bioethanol fireplace is a bit of carbon dioxide and water vapor. You’ll never have to worry about chemicals and toxins being released into the air!
Not only is bio ethanol fuel a clean type of fuel, but it is also a sustainable and renewable energy source. This type of fuel is made by fermenting natural sugars in plants such as sugar cane, corn, beets, and potatoes. If you’re worried about the environmental impacts of cutting down valuable trees or burning fossil fuels for your fire, bioethanol fuel is the way to go.
An ethanol fireplace needs next to no maintenance! Whereas wood-burning fireplaces need cleaning and chimney sweeping, ethanol fireplaces burn cleanly and don’t produce any soot, ash, or odors. All you need to do is to dust your fireplace once in a while.
Converting your existing fireplace to an ethanol fireplace is incredibly cost-effective. Our grate kits start at $400, and you do not need to worry about additional expenses such as professional installation costs, modifying the existing fireplace space, or adding connections.
Once you’ve converted your fireplace to ethanol, you’ll be able to enjoy a real flame that’s as beautiful as it is fuel-efficient. The burn time varies depending on the specific size and model, but on average, our fireplaces will burn 4 hours per liter of fuel. Efficiency and sustainability are important to us. That’s why the Bio Flame fireplace products are designed to be 20-30% more fuel and heat efficient than competing brands.
Same Beautiful Ambiance
One of the most amazing parts of owning a wood-burning fireplace is the cozy ambiance of the logs crackling on the fire. With an ethanol fireplace, you get the same beautiful, real flame and cozy ambiance without the hassle of a traditional fireplace. While alcohol gel fireplaces offer many of the same benefits as ethanol fireplaces, they don’t even come close to the beauty of dancing, orange flame.
Join thousands of customers around the world who have made the switch from a traditional fireplace to a modern, eco-friendly ethanol fireplace. With many benefits and none of the drawbacks of a wood-burning fireplace. Our grate kits make the conversion to an ethanol fireplace quick, easy, and inexpensive.
