5 Living Room Ideas For Ethanol Fireplaces with TV Above

Tuesday, December 7th, 2021

Modern living room with bio ethanol fireplace under tv.

Is your living room dying for an upgrade? Maybe a new unique addition?

If so, we know what you’re missing! An innovative bioethanol fireplace. Bioethanol fireplaces fit perfectly under your mantel and even better underneath your television or in any living space. 

In this article, we will look into multiple living room design ideas that will provide you with the warmth of a traditional fireplace without the smoke. But first, we need to tell you some key safety information for your television installation.

Can You Install an Ethanol Fireplace With a TV Above?

You can install an ethanol fireplace above a television! All you need is a 12” clearance from the top of your fireplace to the bottom of your television. Since heat rises, this eliminates the risk of your television overheating and ultimately decreasing its life. 

How to Install a TV Above an Ethanol Fireplace

Once your ethanol fireplace has been installed, it’s time to install your television. Don’t forget the most important step; you must measure at least 12” to ensure no damage can be caused to your tv. Here is a step-by-step process on how you can properly mount your television above your fireplace:

  1. Lay your new television flat on a soft surface with the screen facing down
  2. Place your mounting brackets on your television
  3. While your screen is face down, measure from the bottom of the screen to the hook of the arms to discover the wall bracket. Write this number down, because you won’t need it until you decide on the placement of your television
  4. Next, find the correct placement of your television–make sure it’s the recommended safe distance from your fireplace
  5. Once you have found your spot, measure your wall, and find the correct placement for your bracket
  6. Now that you have your placement, you can install your bracket and hang your television on the wall 

Installing a television above an ethanol fireplace is an easy option to help you bring your living room to life. If you have a brick wall or a wall that doesn’t have direct studs to drill into, check out this quick video from Fix That Build That.

Ideas for Your TV & Ethanol Fireplace Combo

Ethanol Fireplaces 101: Everything You Need to Know

Thursday, December 9th, 2021

A beautiful ethanol fireplace at nighttime

Have you always dreamed of having a stunning, warm fire light up your living spaces? You’ve come to the right place! Ethanol fireplaces are a fantastic option for those looking to add a safe, environmentally friendly, and beautiful fireplace to their home.

In this article, we’re breaking down everything you need to know about ethanol fireplaces before you invest in your own. We will discuss what ethanol fireplaces are, how they work, and the various options available.

What is an Ethanol Fireplace?

Ethanol fireplaces (AKA bio-ethanol fireplaces) are made from burners that use ethanol as fuel. There’s no need to add any other type of fuel sources like wood or propane.

These fireplaces are an excellent addition to any home because of their versatility. The flame doesn’t emit smoke, and no chimney, gas lines, or vents are required. Because of this, these ventless fireplaces don’t require much in terms of installation.

What is Bioethanol Fuel?

In short, bioethanol fuel is alcohol.

Bioethanol is a renewable energy source. It’s created by the fermentation of starches and sugars from plants, particularly those that would otherwise be wasted due to processes in the agricultural and forestry industries. Plants used to make bioethanol are often sugarcane, grain, or corn. This makes it considerably more environmentally friendly than the fuel alternatives.

To ensure that pure alcohol is used as fuel and isn’t consumed by people, denaturants are added. These make it taste and smell bad and often also poisonous. Depending on the quality of the fuel, it shouldn’t have an odour when it’s burned.

How do Ethanol Fireplaces Work?

Operating a bioethanol fireplace is a super easy process! All you need to do is add fuel to the burner and ignite the flames. The average burn time is around 4 hours, or longer if you opt for a larger flame size. After the flames have gone out, you can add more fuel (we recommend waiting at least 15 minutes to allow it to cool down) or turn off the burner.

Because bioethanol doesn’t produce smoke, carbon dioxide or carbon monoxide, Bio Flame ethanol fireplaces allow you to have warmth and comfort in your home without having to worry about the indoor air quality.

How to Install an Ethanol Fireplace

Ethanol fireplace installation is a breeze. Because of their ventless design, they can be installed almost anywhere within minutes.

Installation will vary depending on the type of ethanol fireplace you purchase. Some ethanol fireplaces come ready for use straight out of the box while others require some simple assembly before they’re ready to go. Ethanol fireboxes typically require the most work in terms of installation, although they can often still be installed in under an hour. Always be sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions.

Certification is imperative when installing an ethanol fireplace in your home, as insurance companies will not cover a claim if the fireplace is not certified.

After your easy installation, your ethanol fireplace should be good to go!

Types of Ethanol Fireplaces

The Bio Flame offers a wide range of modern ethanol fireplace products to suit your unique needs and design preferences.

Wall Mounted Ethanol Fireplaces

The popularity of wall-mounted fireplaces is continually increasing with homeowners and businesses alike. They provide a very contemporary aesthetic and help save interior space. These fireplaces can also be mounted on your wall in as few as 15 minutes.

Ethanol Burners

Ethanol burners offer the most flexibility of any bioethanol fireplace product. They don’t require venting or connections and come in different sizes to suit your needs. These burners are the perfect solution if you’re looking to create the custom fireplace of your dreams.

Bio Flame also offers custom burners. We’ll work with you to ensure the manufacturing specifications of your ethanol burner are up to your standards.

SMART Ethanol Burners

SMART fireplaces have all the benefits of the ethanol burners above, with a huge bonus: you can use your phone, Google Home or Amazon Alexa to operate the burner easily and conveniently. You can easily turn your fireplace on and off from the comfort of your couch.

Ethanol Fireboxes

These are perfect if you already have a fireplace in your home or business that you’d like to convert into an ethanol fireplace. No professional help is required!

You can also install fireboxes inside other features in your home. The possibilities are endless!

Free Standing Ethanol Fireplaces

Since they are free standing and don’t require any hookups or ventilation, you can do pretty much anything with these fireplaces. They can be used for both indoor and outdoor use and they also offer a modern touch to any living space. Free standing fireplaces are a stunning centerpiece that all your visitors are sure to remember.

Why Ethanol Fireplaces are Better than the Alternatives

Bio-ethanol fireplaces are an easy and environmentally friendly alternative to traditional wood-burning or natural gas fireplaces. They offer a clean burn, bringing warmth and ambiance to any space.

The flames are real and offer a competitive heat output minus the mess – no ash or soot to deal with!

Gel fuel is likely the next best alternative but its heat output is much lower so if you’re wanting a fireplace to help you stay warm in addition to aesthetics, ethanol fireplaces are the best choice for you!

Bio Flame Can Help You Choose the Perfect Ethanol Fireplace

Bio Flame offers a line of ethanol fireplaces requiring no venting, gas lines, plug-ins or outlets, and with few other design limitations, if any. They have minimal environmental impact and are an innovative way to heat your home or business.

Additionally, Bio Flame is the only UL (Underwriters Laboratories) and ULC (Underwriter Laboratories of Canada) certified ethanol fireplace company in Canada and the USA. These certifications ensure that our products have passed rigorous testing and exceed globally recognized safety standards so you can have peace of mind when installing our ethanol burners in your home.

ULC marks

If you’re at all interested in an ethanol fireplace, Bio Flame is the way to go.

Outdoor Ethanol Fireplace FAQs: All Your Questions Answered!

Tuesday, August 17th, 2021

Backyard Ethanol Fireplace

An outdoor ethanol fireplace is a perfect addition to your backyard. Not only are ethanol fireplaces warm, eco-friendly, and safe, they provide you with a real authentic flame! Family nights around the fireplace just got even better with all the perks associated with ethanol fireplaces. In this article, we have compiled a list of the most common questions asked about ethanol fireplaces so you can make the decision about whether an outdoor ethanol fireplace is right for you.

Are Outdoor Bioethanol Fires Warm?

Just like any other fireplace, outdoor ethanol fires produce an ample amount of heat with authentic flames! There are certain factors that determine the heat intensity of your bioethanol fireplaces, such as the size of your ethanol burner and the purity of your ethanol fuel type – nonetheless, bioethanol fireplaces produce real flames and are supplemental sources of heat.

Are Outdoor Ethanol Fireplaces Environmentally-Friendly?

Outdoor ethanol fireplaces are the epitome of environmentally friendly! They use bioethanol fuel made from 100% renewable plant-based sources such as sugar cane, corn, beets and potatoes. They are entirely clean-burning and do not release harmful substances or toxic waste into the air.

Are Ethanol Fireplaces Economical?

Ethanol fireplaces are as economical as it gets! Unlike traditional wood-burning, electric, or natural gas fireplaces – ethanol fireplaces do not consume electricity, require ventilation, and have minimal upkeep and maintenance. Ethanol fireplaces are extremely cost-effective and only require you to refill on bioethanol fuel to keep them running!

Are Ethanol Fireplaces Safe?

Ethanol fireplaces are the safest option among all other fireplace alternatives. They emit the least amount of carbon monoxide (a natural byproduct of fire) and do not produce any other hazardous gases or smoke! They also do not require chimneys, gas lines, or electricity – respectively eliminating any hazards associated with them.

Do Bioethanol Fires Smell?

Say your goodbyes to all smells and odours associated with traditional fireplaces! Bioethanol is a completely clean-burning fuel and does not produce any smoke, fumes, soot, or odours – allowing for the best possible air quality. The only scent you may notice is a pleasant aroma when you are extinguishing the fire.

Do Bioethanol Fires Need Ventilation?

Outdoor Ventless Fireplace

Bioethanol fireplaces do not require any ventilation. Because bio ethanol fireplaces do not produce any toxic fumes or waste, you do not need a chimney or flue for ventilation. You may need to occasionally open the windows to let in fresh air, as ethanol fires do consume some oxygen.

How Long Does Ethanol Last in a Fireplace?

Ethanol fireplaces burn for an average of four hours. Once the fireplace runs out of fuel, in order to ignite another fire, you first need to wait for the fireplace to cool down before you can safely pour more bioethanol fuel into the burner.

Can You Put a TV Above an Ethanol Fireplace?

You can most definitely place a TV above an ethanol fireplace if the fireplace is closed off at the top and sits at a reasonably safe distance from it. Alternatively, if your ethanol fireplace has an exposed top, it is recommended you place the TV elsewhere.

How Do I Fill My Ethanol Fireplace?

Fireplace Fuel

To safely fill your fireplace with bioethanol fuel, you must ensure the stainless steel burner is not hot and that any previous flames have been extinguished. Once you have confirmed it is safe to do so, you can pour your bioethanol fuel directly into the burner.

Do Bioethanol Fires Need Electricity?

One of the many perks associated with bioethanol fires is that they don’t require any electricity, plug-ins, outlets, or expensive connections! Bioethanol fireplaces can be placed essentially anywhere and operate solely off of bioethanol fuel. And last but not least, bioethanol fires require no hefty electricity bills!

Are Ethanol Fireplaces Worth It?

Yes! Ethanol fireplaces allow you to enjoy all the benefits and joys of huddling around an authentic flame, without any of the worries associated with traditional fireplaces. Not only are ethanol fireplaces hassle-free, but they are also extremely cost-efficient and environmentally friendly.

Tuesday, August 10th, 2021

Cozying up around the fireplace is a family favourite, but it’s vital to take the necessary precautions and keep the right safety measures in mind. In this article, we have compiled a list of tips with everything you need to know about fireplace safety, so you can continue to enjoy the warmth of the flame as safely as possible.

Common Safety Concerns Associated with Different Fireplace Types

Not all fireplaces function nor operate the same way. That’s why it’s important to know the specific safety concerns associated with your fireplace. Below, we have jotted down the main safety concerns associated with the most common types of fireplaces.

Wood-Burning Fireplace

Wood Burning Fireplace
When it comes to burning wood, the greatest concern is the release of harmful gases such as carbon monoxide which have negative health effects when inhaled. As well, creosote build-up (a byproduct of burning wood) can cause thick debris in the flue and chimney which prevents smoke from being able to escape properly. Creosote buildup severely increases the chances of combustion and is most often responsible for chimney fires.

Wood Stove

Wood Stove
A wood stove fireplace is a free-standing appliance that is enclosed by glass doors. Due to its closed combustion system, wood stoves are more efficient than traditional wood burning fireplaces, generate less smoke, and are safer due to their all-encompassing design. However, it’s important to keep the glass doors closed to avoid sparks and hot embers from flying out, as well as to lessen carbon monoxide emissions in your living space.

Gas Fireplace

Gas Fireplace
A gas fireplace burns a real flame, without the inconvenience of burning firewood, cleaning chimneys, and managing ashes and pesky soot. A gas fireplace features a glass panel that completely separates the firebox from your space, and is fully fueled by gasoline a cleaner and safer alternative than burning wood! Although minimized, concerns about carbon monoxide emissions and gas leaks are still prevalent with this type of fireplace.

Ethanol Fireplace

Ethanol Fireplace
An ethanol fireplace is a ventless fireplace that functions with clean-burning ethanol fuel. They don’t require chimneys, electricity, or gas lines and the only components are the frame and burner. Ethanol fireplaces produce a vibrant flame and pleasant warmth minus the smoke and hazardous gases! Say goodbye to smoke detectors, chimney inspections, and gas leaks. Ethanol fireplaces are a much safer alternative and emit the least amount of carbon monoxide, a complete win! The only preventive measure you need to take with ethanol fireplaces is reducing fire hazards by keeping your items away from the flames.

Which Type of Fireplace is the Safest?

Without a doubt, ethanol fireplaces win all aspects of safety with their clean-burning capabilities, zero toxic waste and extremely minimized carbon monoxide emissions. Keep in mind, the amount of carbon dioxide released from ethanol fireplaces can be comparable to that of human breath! You are able to enjoy authentic flames with your loved ones, worry-free from any harmful emissions or mess!

Essential Fireplace Safety Tips

In order to enjoy the crackling fire with your loved ones responsibly, it’s very important to be educated and aware of the proper safety precautions when it comes to using fireplaces. Below we have compiled a list of essential fireplace safety tips to keep you and your family safe.

  1. Ensure You Have Fire Safety Tools Nearby
    Being equipped with the appropriate tools and alarm detectors can help you gain precious time in the instance of a fire, or better yet help you prevent them. Below are two very essential tools you need.

    • Fire Extinguisher:
      In the instance of any fire, it is crucial that you are equipped with a fire extinguisher. Due to their portability and availability in different sizes, fire extinguishers are extremely flexible and can help you quickly put out a fire.
    • Carbon Monoxide Detectors:
      Carbon monoxide gas is completely odourless, colourless, and tasteless and most importantly poisonous if inhaled. There is essentially no way to tell when you are surrounded by this gas, which is why it’s so important to invest in a carbon monoxide detector. These detectors not only provide homeowners with peace of mind but also prevent life-threatening situations involving carbon monoxide poisoning by alerting homeowners ahead of time.
  2. Clear the Area of Potential Fire Hazards
    Keep highly flammable products and materials such as rugs and carpeting at a safe distance from the fireplace. It’s a good idea to keep a non-flammable rug in front of the fireplace as they are fire-resistant and prevent damage to your floors from any sparks, ash, or embers.
  3. Never Leave a Fire Unattended
    It is crucial that you never leave a fire unattended. If stepping away from the flame, ensure the fire has been fully extinguished and has been given enough time to cool down. It’s important to allow the extinguished fire to completely cool down as any remaining hot embers and ashes are enough to start an unintentional fire – unless it’s a bioethanol fireplace as those don’t require any cooling time!
  4. Keep a Close Eye on Pets and Children
    As much as we enjoy fires, so do children and especially curious pets. It’s important to educate your kids on fireplace safety and to establish strict boundaries such as safety screens to create separation between the fireplace. Besides having fireplace rules and additional safety barriers, it’s still essential you don’t leave children or pets unattended.

How The Bio Flame Can Help You Enjoy The Safest Fires Possible

Ditch the Smoke! 5 Reasons Why a Smokeless Fireplace is Worth the Switch

Friday, August 6th, 2021

The decision to go smokeless is a decision to improve the quality of your life and home. We’ve all been there. You gather around your wood-burning fireplace, ready to enjoy the warmth of the stunning flame but instead, you’re stuck dealing with pesky smoke!

In this article, we will discuss all of the major perks of a smokeless fireplace and give you our narrowed down list of the top 5 benefits to going smokeless!

What is a Smokeless Fireplace?

An innovative new way to heat your home without losing the authenticity of real fire!

Smokeless fireplaces are the answer to all your conventional fireplace needs, without sacrificing design sensibilities and ambience. Smokeless fires offer a safe, easy, and environmentally friendly experience with clean-burning resources. Smokeless fireplaces consist of all-natural, all-renewable materials that are just as beautiful but offer none of the inconveniences associated with wood-burning fireplaces. Real flames with renewable resources, just minus the irritating smoke and messy ash!

Smokeless fireplaces are similar to electric fireplaces in that they are both ventless and low maintenance for your convenience. Electric fireplaces produce hot air but lack real flames. In comparison, smokeless fireplaces boast real flames and less ecological damage.

Why Should You Invest in a Smokeless Fireplace?

Once you go smokeless, you’ll never go back!

1. No More Pesky Smoke

What’s worse? The dreadful anticipation of smoke hitting your eyes or your clothes reeking of that pungent campfire smell? Well, say your goodbyes to all of that because bio-ethanol fuel fireplaces and burners are completely smoke and odour-free. Maintaining fresh air has never been easier than with a smokeless fireplace. With ethanol burners, you can enjoy snuggling up next to the fireplace minus all the smoky nuisances associated with traditional fireplaces.

2. Avoid Negative Health Effects of Wood Smoke

The composition of smoke entails many harmful chemicals and toxins which ultimately result in adverse health effects on the human body. When wood burns, it releases carbon, dust, and other harmful particles such as benzene and formaldehyde These toxins are harmful if inhaled and result in negative health effects and illnesses such as asthma and other cardiovascular diseases.

Ethanol fuel is clean burning and doesn’t emit pollutants into the air in your home or business. Harmful chemicals, soot, smoke, and ashes are a thing of the past with smokeless fireplaces. Bio Flame smokeless fireplaces are completely pollutant and toxin-free, providing your home with a safe flame.

3. Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

Do your part in going clean! Traditional fires release carbon dioxide gas which is one of the single largest sources of global greenhouse gas emissions and a major contributor to global warming!

Bio-ethanol fuel emits very minimal amounts of carbon dioxide – the equivalent amount of burning a couple tealights in your living room! Smokeless fireplaces present the lowest carbon dioxide emissions in comparison to their natural gas and wood-burning counterparts. A smaller carbon footprint means that you can enjoy your fireplace guilt-free!

4. Experience Simple Installation & Cleanup

Beginning with the easy installation process, and ending with an incredibly straightforward clean-up procedure, Bio Flame smokeless fireplaces are safe and simple to use.
