When you come across the word “Ethanol”, one thing that might come to mind is alcohol. Ethanol isn’t just for drinks when you’re hanging out with your friends, it’s also the substitute for the traditional fuel and has garnered much attention as a fuel for fireplace.
Ethanol as a fuel for fireplace has seen a rise in many homes in the last several years. It’s because fireplace doesn’t take much of your time as it requires little effort to set up and easy to be maintained as well. The traditional fireplace requires you to set up logs, drag them inside and start the fire. However, to start up fire using ethanol is much simpler. You simply take the ethanol bottle, pour them into the burner and it’s ready to be ignited with a lighter. Other than that, ethanol fireplace doesn’t produce any smoke, making it a safer alternative compared to the traditional fireplace. A research conducted by EPA has confirmed this. The research showed that a smoke released from the typical fireplace contains harmful carcinogens and inhaling these in the long-run might lead to heart and lung disease. Given the little effort to set up and easier maintenance, the ethanol fireplace is cheaper compared to the traditional fireplace. No chimney is needed to support this fireplace. Imagine coming home after work on a chilly night and having to set up logs for your fireplace and having to do the cleanup afterwards. If you are considering ethanol fireplace, you will not be troubled by these two tasks. Explore more about how ethanol fireplaces can be beneficial for you on the infographic below!
