Do bioethanol fires produce heat?

Perhaps surprisingly, this is a very common question that seems to confuse many people! In part, this could be because biofires are aesthetically pleasing appliances that can be mistaken for decorative pieces. Fortunately, they are much more than this.

How much heat does a bioethanol fireplace give off in kilowatt-hours?

In technical terms, bioethanol fireplaces produce around three kilowatt-hours (kWh) of heat when the fuel gauge is fully open. To give you an idea of how hot this is, the average electric fire will generate around 2kWh of heat. In this way, if you own an ethanol fireplace, heat levels are not something you will have to worry about in the deep midwinter. If anything, you may find that a full flame is a little too hot for your tastes. Fortunately, the easily adjustable slider on the fuel box will allow you to reduce the strength of the flame as you desire.
