Adds Warmth & Vibrance to Any Space
Cold, windy and dark.
That’s about the best time to enjoy the heat and comfort of an open flame. We light up our fires and join together with friends, family or a good book to relax with. The picture is very compelling, and that’s why we love our ethanol fireplaces.
I know that you have a ton of questions if you’ve just found out about ethanol fireplaces, – but don’t worry, I’m here to help. I’ve written several articles addressing every aspect of ethanol fireplaces, if there is an answer, you’ll find it here.
How are ethanol fires different?
The new range of fireplaces are fuelled by bioethanol, a renewable energy source. As a result of the fuel, the fireplaces require no flue. While burning, the fireplaces produce a small amount of CO and water while heating the space. The average heatoutput is around 2-3 kW per hour, which is enough to heat a space of 20-40 sq. metre. Unlike woodburning stoves, no soot or ash is emitted from an ethanol fireplace.
Depending on the model, ethanol fireplaces burn anywhere between 1-10 hours. The burningtime depends on several factors, among the most important are flame size and fuel capacity. To give you an idea of the running cost, an ethanol fireplace from Vauni cost roughly £1 per hour to fuel. That’s the same as wood, without the hassle of cleaning and handling logs.
4 Reasons To Choose an Ethanol Fireplace
It’s not only decorative
Don’t be fooled, an ethanol fireplace is not only for decorative purposes. They are being used by many customers to increase the temperature of their living space during wintertime. Although the fireplaces are not ideal as a source of primary heating they do produce 2-6 kW whereas woodburning stoves produce 6-9 kW.
Ethanol fireplaces are easily operated, simply fill the burner with bioethanol and ignite the fuel with a lighter. You won’t get your hands dirty or need to clean up after using the fireplace. Once you’ve had enough time to enjoy the live flames, the fireplace is easily extinguished by pushing a lid over the fire.
Let’s face it. You’ve never had as much freedom with a fireplace until now. There is no flue or vent dictating the terms of where your future fireplace can be installed – nor do you need to make custom adjustments to your home. The fires require little / no installation and can easily be moved as you change your interior decor.
It’s probably no surprise. Ethanol fireplaces are eco-friendly and save the environment. The fuel is manufactured from organic materials such as potato, corn and cellulose. As a renewable source of energy, the fuel is completely biodegradable and produces no dangerous fumes or particles while burning.

Why Choose Ethanol?
If you’re looking for a primary heat source, ethanol fireplaces are not your match. They do produce a significant amount of heat, but both gas and wood can produce a larger volume of kW per hour. In effect, ethanol fireplaces are only a good fit if you need to increase the temperature a little during winter or don’t need the heat at all.
Having said that, an ethanol fireplace is popular due to its absence of a chimney. In effect, very little cleaning and maintenence is required. The fireplace is also very easy to fuel and ignite. Once lit, you’ll get instant flames and heat without getting your hands dirty.
And did I mention that it’s eco-friendly too?. Bioethanol produce clean flames without any smoke, soot or ash. There’s no dangerous particles, and the environment doesn’t suffer as a result of the clean flames.
Safety Comes First
