What are bioethanol fireplaces?
More than just fireplaces, EcoSmart Fire bioethanol fireplaces are pieces of “fire furniture”.
Smartly designed products that offer a clean lined elegance and a green minded aesthetic not found in traditional fireplaces.
Our fireplaces are fuelled by bio-ethanol, a renewable energy source that burns clean and does not require ventilation,
nor does it produce any of the messy by-products of wood burning fires such as ash, soot or smoke.
The clean burning bio-ethanol means that you are not only using an eco-friendly product, but an incredibly versatile one.
Not restricted by utility lines or the need for a chimney, EcoSmart Fire has a far greater range of installation options,
both indoors and out, than other fire options.
We’re sure that the more you browse through the site, the more you’ll be inspired by our fires.
Some frequently asked questions
Where can I learn more about your products?
To learn more about our products please visit http://www.ecosmartfire.com
Can you extinguish the fireplace before the fuel has all burnt?
Yes, you can turn your fire off at any given time even before the fuel has run out. It is recommended however, that you leave it to burn until it runs out. The shut off mechanism is there for security and safety for those times when you need to leave the house as it is not safe to leave a fire unattended.
How do you light the fire?
Our Instruction Manual that accompanies the product outlines everything you need to know to operate the EcoSmart™ Fire safely and efficiently. Lighting the EcoSmart™ Fire is as simple as dip, ignite, dip – just follow the instructions and seconds later you can enjoy a healthy, warm flame.
Are EcoSmart™ Fires easy to install?
EcoSmart™ Fires are designed to be easy to operate and easy to install. Without the need for a flue or pipe connection, EcoSmart™ Fires are extremely flexible and can be incorporated at any stage of your interior decorating, renovating or building works. For detailed specifications please contact your local distributor.
How long does it take to assemble?
There is virtually no assembly. Our Designer and Grate Ranges are designed to be placed into the desired location, secured into position and operated immediately. The Renovator Range is designed to slot into place, secured and built around with your desired finish – again a quick and easy installation – your builder will love you!
Will the fireplace heat up the room?
The EcoSmart™ Fire is efficient because it is flue less which means all the heat stays in the room rather than most of it being flued outside as residual emissions. See the burner section for more heating information.
Can EcoSmart™ Fires be installed everywhere?
Almost everywhere! EcoSmart™ Fires cannot be installed into bathrooms or rooms that are less than 70m3 [2472ft3] per burner. For all other installations you must comply with our compulsory clearances and installation instructions. Approval from building authorities may be required prior to installation in your area. Please make sure you contact appropriate parties before installing your EcoSmart™ Fire.
Can someone come to my home install it for me?
Many of our products don’t require installation (Designer and Grate Range), and need little more than placement in a desired location. Burners and Renovator Ranges are all zero clearance and can be installed by any builder or cabinet maker. To ensure ease of installation, every order comes with a comprehensive installation manual.
Can I use my existing fireplace?
The Burner & Renovator Range can be installed once the flue has been closed off and all connections to utilities have been officially disconnected by the relevant suppliers. It is also important that the connections have been isolated & comply with minimum clearance zones.The Grate Range provides a selection of fireplace inserts that incorporate the EcoSmart™ burner in a simple, traditional manner. A great way of rekindling a closed off open fire or perhaps, creating a unique fireplace feature - without the fuss.
How do I clean the EcoSmart™ Burner?
All the burners can be cleaned by wiping them down with a soft cloth and liquid stainless steel cleaner. The interior of the burner should only be cleaned once all the fuel has been burnt away and the burner is cool. Simply running hot tap water through the burner is enough to clear away any traces of bio-ethanol. It is normal for stainless steel to become discolored over time when exposed to constant heat.
