Ethanol Fireplaces

Gone are the days when lighting a fireplace meant stacks of wood and coal. Thankfully the clean mindset has also extended to this aspect of winter life with the arrival of ethanol fireplaces. Ethanol fireplaces are fueled by ethanol in gel or liquid form. According to the Canadian website Your Home, the former tends to burn blue while the latter produces a yellow flame, which will look warmer and emulates traditional fire more closely.

One of the greatest advantages offered by ethanol fireplaces, besides being environmentally cleaner, is that they require no venting, allowing designers to be much more imaginative with their creations. Also because of that, they are portable and can be moved from one room to another in the house, allowing for much more flexibility. They can be taken to a new home, too.

Ethanol, also known as ethyl alcohol, does not release any toxins into the air, the only carbon dioxide it emits is the one that the plants (corn and sugarcane, for example) it is made out of contained. Ethanol fireplaces give off moderate warmth and will not get your home littered with ashes and filled with smoke like wood fireplaces do.

Ethanol fireplaces offer a great, greener alternative to traditional fireplaces. They save time since there is no need to go around collecting fire wood, buying coal, cleaning the chimney and the hearth. They also lend a stylish focus point to the house and are made of attractive materials such as stainless steel, wood and ceramic.
