Benefits of an Ethanol Fireplace


Homeowners love fireplaces! As times change, homes have become more contemporary and modern. Homeowners who are looking for a convenient alternative to the traditional wood fireplace can find some great options. One of the most popular options for a no mess, no fuss fire is the ethanol fireplace.

What is an Ethanol Fireplace? 

Also, called ethanol burners, an ethanol fireplace burns ethanol only. Ethanol is a renewable liquid fuel produced from agricultural by-products and burns cleanly, with no odor. Ethanol burns so cleanly, in fact, that it doesn’t produce any smoke, ash, soot, or particulate pollution. Because of its performance, it’s considered a “green” product, for those homeowners that have the environment in mind. There are many benefits to choosing Ethanol, and it’s not just good for the environment.

Ethanol Fireplaces are Versatile

Ethanol fireplaces can be installed nearly anywhere that you have wall or floor space and have many more benefits as well.

Flueless Fireplace

An ethanol fireplace requires no flue because of its clean burn. This is especially desirable when a chimney is not possible. To install a chimney, you first need space, and money to install one. Most fireplaces require a chimney to vent the smoke, hazardous gases, and particulate pollution out of the home. A flueless option like the ethanol fireplace offers the fire you want, with the space you need. They are particularly great for condos and apartment residences.

Authentic Flames

Ethanol burns with a naturally beautiful flame, while still creating a good amount of heat for zone heating and aesthetics. If you don’t have the option of using a chimney, you might look at alternatives like ventless gas fireplaces and electric fireplaces. They are great for zone heating but do not offer the aesthetics that a real fire does. You will not be disappointed in the flame of an ethanol fireplace.

Easy Installation and Maintenance

When you find and buy an ethanol fireplace, you will benefit from an easy installation. Some freestanding models don’t even require an installation, and still, others can be installed during one appointment. When you’re planning to redecorate or renovate, check in with Beach Stove & Fireplace first. A fireplace expert at our showroom can help you select the best ethanol fireplace for your home and family.

Costs Less Than Other Options

Ethanol fireplaces cost less to purchase and install than other options. They require less routine maintenance because of their clean burn and easy maintenance. When you burn ethanol you won’t need chimney sweeps, because there is no chimney. In fact, there is no professional maintenance required for ethanol fireplaces.

Year-Round Fireplace

Ethanol fireplaces are perfect for year-round use. You control the heat that comes from your ethanol fireplace, because however much ethanol you add is how long your fire will burn. You can have a fire in the cool weather to help heat a room, or you can have a small fire during the warm months.

If you’re like many homeowners, your holidays and your home can be made perfect with a fire. Choose an ethanol fireplace and you won’t be sorry! Check out models and designs at aFire USA.
