However much you want this to change, there is pretty little you can do as long as you still rely on traditional forms of energy that require gas, wood, electricity and similar fuels. But just to let you in on my little secret, now there is a lot you can do to have your home heated cheaply and stylishly in an environmentally friendly way. In fact, you will not need external connections or flues to get your fire going in an eco-smart way if you choose to use bioethanol fires.

  • You can get the fire burning in minutes by converting your usual fireplace into bioethanal fire insert.
  • The flames burn cleanly without leaving any residues. It allows a fire without smoke or odor. Whats more, the flames are adjustable and you can regulate the intensity to achieve the right degree of heat you want. Controlling the flame also enables you to capture the perfect ambience you desire.

  • Open fireplaces are notorious for loosing a lot of heat. This is something unheard of when you are using bioethanol fires because they burn so efficiently and completely. Most of the heat produced is retained and used where it is needed.
