7 Reasons to Choose Ethanol Over a Wood Burning Fireplace
Almost every home has a fireplace, and if yours doesn’t then you probably want one. A fireplace is a great tool to have in any home. It adds character and ambiance, but also serves as an alternative heat source. So, if you’re thinking about adding a fireplace to your home, or swapping out your old wood burning one, consider a bio-ethanol burner. Why, you ask? Well, here’s 7 great reasons why you should choose ethanol over a wood burning fireplace.
1) Burns Clean
Bio-ethanol oil is an all natural fuel that’s created from plants and alcohol. When it burns, it burns clean which means there’s no harmful substances being released into the air.
2) No Mess
When you’re dealing with a wood burning fireplace or stove, you have to face the messy clean up. Ashes, old coals, dust, and other debris quickly build up when you’re burning wood. But ethanol fireplaces leave behind zero residue and zero mess. A quick wipe inside the burner a few times each year is all it needs.
Burning wood can become pricy if you’re purchasing your material. And it’s time consuming if you’re chopping it yourself. Either way, you’re destroying forests and releasing harmful emissions into the air. Go with bio-ethanol and help reduce our carbon footprint.
4) Location Flexibility
With an ethanol burner insert you can literally put your fireplace anywhere you wish. You’re not limited to an exterior wall or an area with lots of clearance. They simply don’t need it. So pick your spot, and install it there.
5) No Emissions
There’s always CO2 concerns and other worries when dealing with wood burning stoves and fireplaces. But with bio fuel, you can be worry-free. There are literally zero harmful emissions.
Wood burning stoves and fireplaces require a lot of clearance around and above in order to be safe for those involved. They produce a massive source of heat and can be dangerous if you got too close. But ethanol units require very little clearance. In fact, you can safely install them underneath a TV.
7) No Venting NeededWhat’s the one main thing holding back wood burning fireplaces? Venting. They need professional venting through an exterior wall in order to work properly and safely. But with a ventless wall fireplace you don’t have to worry about that. They don’t need venting due to their zero emissions and low heat source. So, you can literally put one in your bathroom if you really wanted
