  • by

The bioethanol-fueled fire pits have become more popular for both indoor and outdoor spaces, and with all the benefits it’s not difficult to understand the reason.

A bioethanol outdoor fireplace comes in a variety of sizes and shapes, and based on the space available it is certain that you will find one that meets your requirements.

What is Bioethanol?

Simply put, Bioethanol is a renewable liquid fuel that is made from agricultural by-products which burn cleanly. That means there is no flames, no smoke and no hassle.

Bioethanol is a non-toxic, renewable, and green energy source that is made by fermentation of the starch and sugar elements of plant byproducts (mainly sugarcane and other crops such as grain) by using yeast. It is also produced from potatoes, corn milk, rice beetroot, most recently, grapes, bananas and dates, based on the country’s strength in agriculture. Incredible right?

What are the advantages of Bioethanol?

Eco Friendly Outdoor fireplaces made of bioethanol are more sustainable than traditional fossil fuels such as coal. Bioethanol fuel is made from plants therefore the flames burn efficiently and don’t release harmful chemicals into the air.

There is no gas and No Electricity needed – A bioethanol-powered outdoor fireplace runs solely on bioethanol fuel, so you will not require energy sources or fuel sources like electricity or gas, making the setup easy. They also work perfectly even if power goes out.

Simple Installation – Since the fire burns completely cleanly and without fumes or smoke it is not necessary for an exhaust. This makes them simple to set up and, depending on the configuration of your fire pit (indoor or outdoors) you can place your fire pit pretty much wherever you want.

What is the reason why Bioethanol Eco-friendly?

The burning of Bioethanol produces an emission that is clean of steam, heat and a tiny amount of carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide is taken up by plants. Then it is processed through photosynthesis, which helps the plant develop. The perpetual cycle of creation and burning of energy creates Bioethanol an environmentally friendly fuel source.

Is it true that Bioethanol Fire Pits costly to operate?

In comparison to the operation and installation of wood or gas fire pits, there is not. There is no requirement for electricity or additional gas costs as well as chimneys, installation or costs as well as they are more simple to install and operate. Also, there is no annual maintenance requirement.

We would however suggest using a higher quality fuel. Certain Bioethanol fire pits are only going to be compatible with a specific type of fuel, so make certain to verify this in the description of the product or manufacturer’s guide prior to purchasing.

A better quality fuel will allow your fire to last longer, with a longer-lasting flame, which can cost you less in the long run since fuel of lower quality will burn up faster.

Are they safe to use Indoors?

Yes, but be sure that the one you select is designed to be used indoors. Some Bioethanol fire pits are made for indoor use, and they may require a special design to be specifically designed for indoor use.

Bioethanol fires create carbon dioxide, the substance is produced in tiny amounts which is an natural byproduct of any fire. Additionally, bioethanol fires are safer to use indoors compared to traditional fires as they don’t emit smoke, ash , or carcinogenic chemicals, meaning you won’t breathe the toxic fumes that are emitted into your home.

Like any burning or flammable fuel ensure that you are careful when working with the burner and fuel. Follow all guidelines and instructions to ensure the highest security.

Does Bioethanol Fire Pits Produce Warmth?

Absolutely, Bioethanol fires produce real-burning flames that release lots of heat, which makes them a great alternative to traditional wood or gas fires to heat your home and garden. No fake flames or fake heat sources only a stunning flame that dances, keeping your warm and cozy.

Additional Tips:

Buy the safety screen whenever you can – not just a security measure, but in an evening that is windy, the screen can protect flames.

Get a protective cover Although the fire pit may have been constructed from the finest and most sturdy materials, it’s recommended to cover it when stored outdoors to help protect the long-term durability of the table/fire pit.

Utilize the efficiency ring of the burner (where it is applicable) This will reduce the amount of flame that is emitted and improve the effectiveness for the burning device. Make sure that the burner is allowed to cool completely prior to removing or adding the efficiency rings.
