Eco-friendly Fireplaces with Bioethanol Fuel
Eco-friendly fireplaces? Yes, our fireplace inserts from EcoSmart use bioethanol fuel which is a sustainable choice that can be used over and over again.
What is Bioethanol?
Bioethanol is a renewable liquid, produced from agricultural by-products. It is made by fermenting starch components as sugarcane and grains using yeast, which then turns into ethanol/pure alcohol that can be used as fuel. This biofuel can also be produced using potatoes, rice, milk, corn or bananas which makes it possible to produce this fuel locally in many countries.
Reasons to choose a fireplace with bioethanol fuel
Efficient Fuel Source
Did you know that the combustion of bioethanol is totally clean? This means there is no ash, soot or harmful emissions that need to be extracted through a flue or chimney, all that heat from the fireplace stays in your room.
Our fireplaces from EcoSmart use e-NRG which is the cleanest and most efficient liquid ethanol on the market. This creates the most vibrant flame with the longest burning time.
Green Energy & Renewable Source
The combustion of bioethanol results in a clean emission: heat, steam and a small amount of carbon dioxide. The carbon dioxide is absorbed by the plants and then processed via photosynthesis that helps the plants grow. This creates an infinite cycle of creation and combustion of energy and makes ethanol a carbon neutral and environment-friendly source of fuel.
Flexibility in design
Fireplaces with biofuel are ideal for designers that are looking for a flexible, minimalistic fire design. It gives you a lot of freedom because no hard utilities are required for the fireplace. This is a popular choice for interior designers, home owners and architects since you have the possibility to customize the fire to fit your desired look and existing floor plan.
The fireplace comes in a timeless, black luxurious finish with steel burners in stainless steel and black glass charcoal. They also come in many different shapes and sizes, both for indoor and outdoor purposes. Because you don't need a flue or chimney, you can enjoy an open fire more easily.
What to think about before purchasing a biofuel fireplace
The first important thing to consider before purchasing a biofuel fireplace is where you want to position your fireplace. We have multiple different options for each, such as those faced left corner, right corner or single sided. Which one you want to choose depends on how the rooms and furniture in it are placed.
The second thing to consider is the desired size of your fireplace. We have everything from long fireplaces that cover a whole wall, to smaller inserts that could fit in smaller living spaces as well.
To determine the right size for a fireplace insert we advise you to measure the height, width and depth on the existing space as well as the rear width and depth on the hearth, the space in front of the fireplace. The EcoSmart Fireplaces can be installed almost everywhere, each fire has a minimum size for how small the room can be. It depends on how large the fireplace you want to have in the specific room.
