Frequently asked questions
Can automatic ethanol fireplaces heat a room?
Yes, an automatic ethanol fireplace can heat a room. The size of the room and the BTU output of the fireplace will determine how well the room is heated. For example, a small room may only be partially warmed, while a larger room will be more evenly heated.
Are bioethanol tabletop fireplaces considered safe?
Yes, bioethanol tabletop fireplaces are considered safe when used as directed. The fuel is made from renewable resources and emits no harmful fumes. The flames are also contained within the fireplace, so there is no risk of a fire spreading beyond the fireplace.
What kind of emissions do bioethanol tabletop fireplaces emit?
Bioethanol tabletop fireplaces emit water vapour and carbon dioxide. These emissions are considered safe and are not harmful to the environment. Additionally, the emissions from a bioethanol fireplace are significantly lower than those from a traditional wood-burning fireplace.
Do bioethanol tabletop fireplaces need to be vented?
No, bioethanol tabletop fireplaces do not need to be vented. Unlike traditional fireplaces, they don’t require a venting system to release smoke and other toxins. Keep in mind that bio ethanol fires consume some of the oxygen in the room, so fresh air is needed once in a while.
