Buying a bioethanol fireplace is on your mind, but the many options on the market give you a headache? Don’t panic, simply guide your decision by keeping your priorities and needs in mind. 

If you don’t already know them, bioethanol fireplaces may be exactly what you need! They have greatly increased in popularity over the past few years and this is no coincidence. 

Here are 6 reasons to choose a bioethanol fireplace!


It is quick and easy to install  

A bioethanol fireplace does not require any special installation before it is ready for use. Since the combustion of bioethanol produces only a gas mixture comparable to human breathing, the fireplace does not require a chimney or vent. Simply install it in a place away from anything easily flammable (such as curtains or paper), fill it with fuel and you’re done!

It runs on renewable energy 

Bioethanol, the fuel used in said fireplaces, is a fuel made out of plant scraps. It is often made from cereals or even beets. Since these resources are harvested every year, bioethanol is considered a renewable source of energy. Also, it is a great alternative to fossil fuels which are harmful to the environment. 

It is aesthetically pleasing

A fireplace can instantly revamp a room in the house, while creating a warm atmosphere at home. It’s an eye-catching decorative element that undeniably adds a certain cachet to your home. Ethanol fireplaces are very aesthetically pleasing with their sleek, minimalist and trendy design. They can easily be incorporated into any decor and they can be moved around as you please. 

They can be used both indoors and outdoors

Whether it’s to add ambiance to your barbecue dinner on a warm summer night or inside on a winter day, curled up on the couch with a nice book, your bioethanol fireplace  can be installed anywhere! With an ethanol fireplace, you can take the warm dancing flame of your fireplace wherever your heart desires.

It does not require electricity

There’s been a power outage and you need a source of light and heat? Don’t panic! Bioethabol fireplaces don’t require electricity to operate. All you have to do is fill the burner with bioethanol and light it up. As simple as that!

It does not require any special maintenance

If the idea of having chores to tend to on your wood burning fireplace get you down, you can stay calm, rested (and warm) by choosing an ethanol fireplace. Although bioethanol fireplaces produce a real flame, they don’t produce soot, smoke, ash or dust. Therefore, there is no daily cleaning required, only a cloth to be wiped once in a while.


What is bioethanol?

Bioethanol is a source of renewable and domestic energy. It is a plant and vegetable based fuel produced through a sugar fermentation process. The sugar collected in order to produce it comes mainly from fuel or energy crops; including maize, corn and wheat crops.

As it is made from biological products, it is a cleaner source of fuel that emits 40-80% less greenhouse gases.
