Are bioethanol fireplaces any good?
Yes, bioethanol fires produce real-burning flames that give off plenty of heat, making them a fantastic, like-for-like alternative to traditional gas or log-burning fire for heating homes and gardens.
Do bio ethanol fireplaces give off heat?
Unlike gas and wood burning fireplaces, bioethanol is carbon neutral. The most common miss perception of bioethanol as a source fuel for fireplaces is that it doesn’t provide heat. There are many bioethanol fireplaces that produce more heat than wood or gas fireplaces.
Are bio ethanol tabletop fireplaces safe?
In conclusion, bioethanol fuel is a safe fuel to use, especially when compared to standard gas burning fireplaces and woodburning fireplaces. It emits no smoke or particles, just trace amounts of carbon dioxide that are no threat to you or your family.
Does bio ethanol burn clean?
Bioethanol is pure alcohol. The combustion of bioethanol is clean which makes it an efficient and effective source of heat because there is no soot, ash or harmful emissions that need to be extracted through a flue – meaning all the heat stays in your room.
Do bioethanol fires smell?
No, bio ethanol fuel burns clean and doesn’t produce any smoke, odors, ash, or soot. When you extinguish your fire, you might notice a faint smell, similar to when blowing out a candle.
What is the best bioethanol fuel?
Formulated for use in ventless ethanol fireplaces, e-NRG is the cleanest, most efficient liquid bioethanol fuel on the market and produces the best flame each and every time.
Do bioethanol fires need ventilation?
Do I have to ventilate the room when the fire is on? Unlike gas or wood-burning fireplaces, there is no need for a flue or chimney in a room with a bio ethanol fireplace. That being said, bio ethanol fires consume some of the oxygen in the room, which means that fresh air needs to be let in once in a while.
Why does my bioethanol fire smell?
When the burner runs low on fuel, it gets to a point where there is not enough fuel to support combustion. At this point combustion stops and any remaining vapour has the ability to mix with room air and give some off some Methylated Spirits odour.
What are the pros and cons of bioethanol?
Advantages & Disadvantages of Bioethanol
- Exhaust gases of ethanol are much cleaner, it burns more cleanly (more complete combustion)
- The use of ethanol-blended fuels such as E85 (85% ethanol and 15% gasoline) can reduce the net emissions of greenhouse gases by as much as 37.1%, which is a significant amount.
What is the benefit of bioethanol?
Bioethanol has a number of advantages over conventional fuels. It comes from a renewable resource i.e. crops and not from a finite resource and the crops it derives from can grow well in the UK (like cereals, sugar beet and maize). Another benefit over fossil fuels is the greenhouse gas emissions.
Are bioethanol fires safe indoors?
Are Bioethanol Fires Safe Indoors? Yes, they are. Bioethanol fires do produce CO2 (carbon dioxide), but not only is this substance present in very small amounts, but it is also a by-product of any real fire. All of this, of course, means that bioethanol fires are safe to have both inside and outside the home!
