Ventless ethanol fireplaces are offered in a wide range of styles. You can install an ethanol fireplace as a tabletop, free-standing, wall-mounted fireplace, or transform your existing, traditional fireplace into an ethanol fireplace with a grate kit in a matter of minutes!

Bio Ethanol Fuel Vs. Other Types of Fuel

If you have been shopping around for fireplaces, you may have been wondering how bioethanol-fuelled fireplaces compare with other types of fuel sources. To help you find a fireplace that meets your needs, here is a complete guide to how bio ethanol fireplace fuel stacks up to other modern and traditional fuel sources. Read More
Alcohol Gel
At first glance, alcohol gel and bio ethanol fuel might seem very similar. However, there are some key differences between the two.

Gel fuel is made of pure isopropyl alcohol, salt, water, and thickening agents. The salt in the gel fuel is designed to create a crackling sound, imitating the sound of a wood-burning fire. Gel fuel comes in ready-to-use canisters that usually can’t be refilled and are disposed of when empty. Gel fireplaces require slightly more work compared to bio ethanol fireplaces, as the alcohol gel canisters are smaller and need to be changed more often.

The fire produced by alcohol gel is the key difference between the two alcohol-based fuel sources. Whereas bio ethanol fuel burns with playful, scattered, orange flames, gel fuel offers a more slow-burning, yellow, gathered, and thicker flames. While an alcohol gel fire lights up quickly in about 30 seconds or less, it also doesn’t produce as much heat compared to other types of fuel, typically 2,500-3,000 BTUs per hour.

Alcohol gel and bio ethanol fuel offer many of the same benefits. The main ingredient in both is denatured alcohol. These types of clean-burning fireplace fuel are made for ventless fireplaces, which are simple to use and install.

Natural Gas
Natural gas fireplaces are hooked up to a natural gas line in your home or commercial space. Less commonly, a natural gas fireplace can also be fueled by propane, which comes in portable tanks that are also widely used to fuel BBQs and deck heaters.

Natural gas is an inexpensive fuel source for a fireplace, while propane is comparable with ethanol fuel. However, natural gas fireplaces need venting and connections installed. Adding these permanent connections in the room should be done by a professional and the initial cost of installation can be discouraging.

Fireplaces that run on natural gas produce a lot of heat. In smaller spaces, this heat can quickly become overwhelming. If you’re primarily looking for a fireplace for ambiance and decorative purposes, this type of fireplace is probably not right for you.

Both natural gas and bio ethanol fuel produce real flames, but the look is different. Flames in natural gas fireplaces tend to be more constant, while ethanol fireplaces feature playful, dancing flames that are mesmerizing to look at.

While ethanol and gel fuel are completely ventless, the intense fire from natural gas burns up a lot of oxygen in the room they’re in. A vent or flue is needed to expel byproducts from the natural gas combustion and ensure good air quality.

Electrical fireplaces are a convenient option, often used in condos or other spaces where it’s not possible to add venting and other permanent connections. Driven by a heating element rather than a real flame, this is a vent-less, low maintenance fireplace option.

The key difference between ethanol fireplaces and electric fireplaces is the aesthetics. Electric fireplaces produce heat but not a real flame. If you’re looking for an authentic fireplace with a beautiful ambiance, electrically fueled fireplaces are not the way to go.

Depending on how electricity is generated in your area, electric fireplaces are usually not the most eco-friendly option either. Electricity is produced by burning coal or natural gas in most places, so if environmental considerations are important to you, a renewable fuel source such as bio ethanol fuel is a better, more sustainable option.

The traditional fireplace choice is a wood-burning fireplace. While the smell, look, and cozy ambiance of a wood-burning fireplace is appealing to many, wood as a fuel source also has some drawbacks.

Wood-burning fireplaces are a lot of work. From sourcing wood, chopping wood, hauling logs, and cleaning ash and soot, these fireplaces are far from maintenance-free. Fireplaces that are fuelled by wood also need professional installation, a chimney, and the up-front and ongoing costs of maintenance and firewood is high in most areas.

When burning properly, they give off a lot of warmth and can be used as a primary source of heat. However, lighting the fire can be tricky and the heat output can be hard to control.

In terms of sustainability, wood is not a renewable resource, and fueling a wood-burning fireplace relies on cutting down valuable trees. Although the carbon footprint of burning wood is lower than fossil fuels, wood-burning fireplaces release soot and other particulates into the environment. Even with the best chimney, some harmful particles are emitted into the room, which can reduce air quality and cause breathing problems for you and your family in the long run.

Bio Ethanol Fuel
Compared with other fireplace fuel options, bio ethanol fuel offers many benefits and few drawbacks.

Bio ethanol fuel produces a real, beautiful dancing flame. A bio ethanol fireplace can be easily installed almost anywhere and does not need venting, flue, chimney or other permanent connections.

Bio ethanol fuel has been carefully designed to produce a good amount of heat and is fuel-efficient. The ethanol fuel canisters can easily be refilled and produce little waste.

Ethanol fuel is a sustainable type of biofuel that is made from plants. This type of fuel burns clean and is a great option if you’re concerned about air quality in your home or commercial space. If you or your family member is sensitive to air allergens, bio ethanol fireplaces are a great way to add warmth and coziness in your home without compromising air quality.

If you’re looking for a fireplace that is beautiful, cost-effective, low-maintenance, and sustainable, a bio ethanol fireplace checks all the boxes! A modern solution to a traditional desire for warmth, comfort, and beauty in your home, bio ethanol fuel has quickly become a go-to choice for many homeowners around the world.
