With the upcoming trends and the eco-friendliness in mind the subject of bioethanol-fireplace is recently getting more and more attention. This is not only because these fireplaces are much better for the environment, but also of how easy they are to assemble and maintain. In this article we will go more in depth with the subject and explain all the advantages it has over the traditional wood-burning stoves.  

WHAT IS A BIO ETHANOL FIREPLACE? 

Biofireplace is a fireplace powered by a bioethanol, which is a liquid fuel that is ignited to create beautiful flames – just like a conventional fireplace. Bioethanol fuel is created from organic materials such as corn, sugarcane, or potatoes. One of the main advantages of this eco-friendly solution is the fact, that there is no need for a chimney or a ventilation system for it to function properly. This fact itself allows for a budget reduction as well as space savings, which could be use for something else or more practical.  

The fireplace itself usually consists of a steel casing in different colours and designs, and a burner of different sizes, depending on the casing. The flames are produced by the combustion chamber itself, also called the burner, while the outer frame is made according to a specific pattern – like a piece of furniture. Another advantage of bio ethanol fireplaces would be the ease to assemble and maintain them compared to the traditional wood-burning stoves. There is no need for a specialist to help us mounting the fireplace, nor a great deal of maintenance tools, because there will not be any ash to take care of.  

CHANGE YOUR TRADITIONAL FIREPLACE TO A BIOETHANOL ALTERNATIVE 

Older fireplaces and wood-burning stoves often have a beautiful and unique look and style that is worth keeping; turning it into a bio-fireplace is just decorating it from the inside. Therefore, let’s not start by removing bricks from the old fireplace or disconnecting the chimney flue, but let’s keep the fireplace’s charm and keep it intact. The only thing that needs to be done beforehand is to clean the base of the fireplace, and then we can add the bioethanol insert. A perfect DIY project that we love here on the site. See more DIY projects here 

BIOFIREPLACE AS AN INTERESTING PART OF THE INTERIOR 

As mentioned above, bioethanol fireplaces are available in many different designs and configurations, is it also possible to design your own biofireplace that will match your needs and desires. One of the most common wall designs is a TV set and a bio-fireplace on the same wall. However, if you are a fan of fireplace flames visible from both sides of the wall at the same time this is also an option when it comes to double-sided built-in bioethanol fireplace inserts. Although the bio-fireplace will provide additional warmth and a cosy atmosphere in your home, it will also attract a lot of attention of your guests.
