Today’s Fireplace – A Healthier Solution

Today’s Fireplace – A Healthier Solution

There’s nothing that chases away winter’s unforgiving cold like the dancing flames of a fireplace. The crackling fire, the ever-present scent of wood burning – the ritual of throwing a log into the hearth, all reminiscent of the season.

Unfortunately, evidence now shows that wood burning fireplaces may be hazardous to your health. According to the EPA, a wood burning fireplace contains carcinogens that, when inhaled, can cause respiratory health issues. Because of this, many U.S. states now have strict codes when using this type of hearth.

Now, both homeowners and trade professionals are employing the use of bio ethanol fireplaces.This clean burning alternative provides a better solution with its low impact on the environment and its convenience. Let’s face it: There’s nothing like a crackling fire – but at what cost? Ethanol fireplaces are a great way to incorporate dancing flames and added heat into your space without the health concerns and hassle. Although they are intended as a secondary heat source and ambience producer, this type of ventless fireplace is a practical substitute for many.

Ethanol Fireplaces are powered by liquid bioethanol fuel (a denatured alcohol) which is a byproduct of renewable resources, such as corn. Because ethanol fuel burns clean, there is no need for a chimney or special ventilation system. Only heat, water vapor and trace amounts of carbon dioxide are emitted so no ash, soot, smoke nor smell are created. There is no wood to chop, no gas lines to install and clean-up is a cinch!

VentlessEthanol Fireplaces are readily found online, as is the liquid fuel. There is a solution for everyone – ranging from models that are placed on the tabletop to those placed on the floor or hung onto or recessed into the wall.

In addition to fully-finished models, ethanol fireplace inserts are offered for those who have the penchant to design their own clean burning hearth. Offered in many sizes with and without remote control capability, the design possibilities are endless. If you have an existing fireplace, you can easily convert it with a fireplace grate that employs bioethanol.

Here’s what fireplace user R. Ransom had to say: “I received my tabletop fireplace on 1/5/16 and I was immediately impressed with the quality of the product. The heavy glass panes installed easily and the stainless steel was flawlessly polished to perfection. The fireplace is an excellent accent to home décor, and the flame mesmerizes you with the vivid display of movement back and forth with its changes in color and height.Overall I am immensely satisfied that I took a chance and ordered this fireplace and I expect to enjoy the accents that it creates in my home during these cold winter months.”

No matter your taste or need, there is a solution for those in apartments, condos, houses or in commercial settings!
