They may sound complicated, but a bioethanol fireplace is really easy to use.
Just squeeze the bioethanol from our ‘squeezy’ bottles into the burner box supplied with your fireplace.
Using a gas lighter style tool or extended taper, light the bio ethanol fuel. Within just a few minutes a lovely natural and cosy flame will appear.
Use the metal closing rod supplied to pull / push the sliding mechanism over the flame to adjust or extinguish the flame.
Benefits of bioethanol compared to log or gas fireplaces
No need for a chimney
Our bioethanol fireplaces don't need any flue or chimney because they don’t give off any smoke!
Environmentally friendly and clean
Bioethanol fuel burns with 98% efficiency, so its clean burning and no unpleasant residue.
Zero or minimal installation needed
Many of our free-standing bioethanol firepalces come fully assembled, whilst others are wall mounted in 40 minutes or less.
Allowed in smoke controlled zone
Since our bioethanol fireplaces do not produce smoke, they are permitted in geographical areas that have smoke controlled zones!
Our biofires have passed the new European Standard for Bioethanol Fireplaces : BS EN 16647:2015
Its easy to adjust the flame size or heat output of most of our real flame bioethaol fireplaces.
No gas or electricity
All you need is a bioethanol fireplace, and our bioethanol fuel. That’s it! Nothing else. No gas or electric source.
Real warming flame
Our biofires give off real heat from a real flame. Nothing artificial here!
What is bioethanol?
Bioethanol - or simply ‘ethanol’ is a renewable energy source made by fermenting the sugar and starch components of plant by-products - mainly sugarcane and crops like grain, using yeast.
Bioethanol fuel is completely composed of biological products. The combustion of bio ethanol results in a clean emission: Heat, Steam and Carbon Dioxide.
Carbon dioxide is absorbed by plants. It is then processed via photosynthesis to help the plant grow. This infinite cycle of creation and combustion of energy makes bio ethanol a carbon neutral fuel source.
