Woodburner styling partnered perfectly with bioethanol simplicity.

    • Integrated flame control to adjust the flame height and intensity (using the tool supplied).
    • Tested by TUV, the German world class testing laboratory, to conform to the new safety standard BS EN 16647:2015.
    • 1 Litre capacity, burns for approximately 3.5 hours (depending on location, air flow etc).
    • Heat output: approximately 3.0 kw (same as an electric heater on medium setting).
  • The Howarth comes as a complete unit. Hassle free installation. You'll be using it in minutes of receiving it. Its versatility extends to it also being ideal for use in living rooms, dining rooms, conservatories. garden offices and even outdoors.

ModdadH 23/07/2017
. . . we just love it!! . . . was thinking of a woodburner in our new extension but this was a much better and cheaper alternative (also saved us from drilling through our new wall or roof). . . Can't believe the heat that comes off it . . . had to try it out even on a warm June evening! Even the dog loves it!

We have waited a while to review our fire as we wanted to test it fully before commenting. Firstly Mike was extremely helpful answering all our "new to biofires" questions. Delivery was in 4 days from order!, The heat is great and you can see the flame all round, a real wow factor for our guests and family. Bonus is no cleaning up afterwards.

How should I use the pebbles or logs that are available to purchase?

The pebbles and logs that we sell are for decorative purposes only. You must NEVER COVER THE OPENING of the steel fuel box with anything, including pebbles and logs. They must only be placed AROUND THE OPENING  We also advise you to remove them when filling the fuel box with bioethanol fuel, to avoid accidentally spraying fuel on them. Any spillages should be wiped off before lighting the fire. Do not allow the pebbles to touch the glass.  

Can a free standing bioethanol fireplace be placed flat against a wall?

For free standing bioethanol fires, we suggest when they are in use they are moved away from the wall before being lit, and then returned once cooled and you have finished using them. Most of our bioethanol fires can be moved this distance by just one person. Never move the fireplace when alight or when hot !

How quickly can I expect to be using a bio ethanol fireplace when it arrives?

Our bioethanol fires are aimed at those of us with little time to waste.... Many of our bio ethanol fires require absolutely no installation. They may only need some very small final assembly but on most of the fireplaces, this will take just a few minutes. Typically...it may involve  inserting the protective glass into its slot, or putting the fuel box inside the housing. Really easy! Just make sure that any room you use the bio fire in is well ventilated.

How do I extinguish the flame on my biofire?

The stainless steel fuel box has a shutter that can be closed to shut off the flame. Always use the supplied tools to do this. Never use your hands or any part of your body to do this as the fuel box will be very hot. Do not move the bio fire until the stainless steel fuel box has cooled.

How do I light my bioethanol fireplace?

Never use any matches, use a firelighter. If you have bought our Bio fuel, then it comes in a handy squeezy bottle, so there is no need to decant it first....just gently squeeze direct into the stainless steel fuel box within the bioethanol fireplace. Always clear up any spilled biofuel on any part of the bioethaol fireplace or surrounding area before you light it.

Can I move my bioethanol fireplace?

Since many of our bioethanol fireplaces require absolutely no installation, these can easily move to different rooms or different locations. You can experiment as many times as you like. They are not fixed to one location!. Whichever room you decide to locate the bioethanol fire, please ensure that the room is well ventilated. This means not putting the biofire in an air sealed room, but in rooms that have some natural circulation. Never move the biofuel fireplace whilst lit or with any biofuel inside the burner box. Always ensure that the unit has cooled completely before moving it. Allow at least 30 minutes for the stainless steel fuel box to cool.

Can I put my TV above a bioethanol fireplace?

As there is no smoke given off by our bioethanol fires, you don't need to worry about smoke damage to your TV. Nevertheless, we recommend that you only place a TV above a bio ethanol fireplace that has a closed top, such as our extremely popular wall mounted MARLOW

We recommend a minimum of 15cm between the top of the fire and the bottom of the TV.

Can I adjust the flame size of my biofire?

Very easily ! To reduce the flame size on our bio ethanol fireplaces, you can just slide the cover of the stainless steel fuel box over the opening as much as you require.

Can i put a shelf above the fireplace?

As there is no smoke given off by our bioethanol fires, you don’t need to worry about smoke damage above the fireplace. Nevertheless, we recommend that you only place a shelf above a bio ethanol fireplace that has a closed top, such as our extremely popular wall mounted MARLOW. There should be a minimum of 15cm between the top of the fire and the underside of the shelf. We do advise however that all flammable materials are kept at least 1m from the flames.
