What are the benefits of a bioethanol fire?
Bioethanol fires like EcoSmart have a range of design and lifestyle benefits. The vast range of EcoSmart Fire models enables them to be used to enhance the ambiance of indoor and outdoor spaces within both residential and commercial environments - and the thousands of installations around the world are testament to this. It provides an environmentally friendly heating system that uses the cleanest, most efficient fuel source on the market.
Do EcoSmart Fire ethanol fireplaces give off any fumes or gases?
Bioethanol fuel is made of fermented plants like sugarcane or corn and is essentially a liquid alcohol. To safely make “de-natured” and unfit for consumption, substances have been added. The burning of these substances may cause a slight smell upon initial lighting and when the flame is extinguished – similar to when you blow out a candle. Clean burning and eco-friendly, ethanol fuel releases heat, carbon dioxide (the same stuff we exhale) and steam.
Does using a bioethanol fire allow me to position it effectively in different areas of the room?
Potentially yes, as there are no connections needed. EcoSmart Fires are designed to provide flexibility - and if it’s a freestanding model it can be positioned almost anywhere.
Is their heat output similar to a gas heater?
Burning bioethanol is similar to gas, but the room doesn't dry out like it does with gas - a more gentle, softer heat is created. Heat-wise, it depends on the models being compared. Some of our bioethanol burners output 15,000 BTU and can heat up to 60sqm of living space. Bioethanol is not, however, on an adjustable thermostat. Some may be turned up and down, but you can't control the room temperature in the same way as you do with gas on mains
Are ethanol fireplaces good for the environment?
EcoSmart Fire’s ethanol fireplace burners and fireplace inserts, when paired with our e-NRG bioethanol fuel are clean burning with the only byproduct being heat, steam and carbon dioxide (the same stuff we exhale). Unlike gas fireplace inserts and wood burning fireplace inserts, EcoSmart Fire’s ethanol fireplaces do not produce messy pollutants like soot, smoke, and ash.
