If you have a home that has been built with no chimney, or flue system, then you will most likely be told your fireplace options are limited, possibly being guided to an electric fire. There is another solution, a bio ethanol flueless, no chimney, fire design. Bioethanol flueless fires use a sustainable, eco-friendly, bio fuel source that is made from vegetables providing real heat and having a real living flame. This is much more visually pleasing than an electric fire with a fan, lights and an electric heater. These modern no chimney bio ethanol fireplace designs are 100% energy efficient and there are many different design styles to consider.
The term “flueless” is new to some people so lets define what the flueless means. A flue is a duct or extraction system that is used by anything which generates waste gases that need to be vented to the outside. If you are burning coal, gas or oil then there will need to be a “flue” to extract the harmful waste products that are generated when the fuel burns. This can be an old coal fire in a home using a chimney or a coal fired power station with a large number of chimneys. A flue pipe and a chimney do the same thing. With no chimney bio ethanol flueless fire designs the fuel is clean burning with no harmful emissions. Due to the fact there are no emissions the products are classed as “flueless” or “no chimney”. In summary, a flueless bio ethanol fireplace needs no chimney or flue system to be installed in your home to be used.

The requirement of a chimney or flue system is a key factor when choosing a secondary heat source for your home or development project. If the property does not have an existing chimney already then choosing a fireplace product that needs to be used with one one will involve very costly installation of either a brick built chimney or a flue pipe system. There is also another consideration, if your property already has a chimney with an open fireplace you are losing a lot of your primary heat, eg central heating, out through the chimney 24 hours a day. To get an instant lowering of heating bills it may be advantageous to brick up the chimney, stop the heat loss, and install a Bio Ethanol Flueless Fire Design instead. Note, if you are removing an old fire first consult a trained engineer or builder, especially if removing an old gas burner. They will do a survey and confirm what building work is involved in blocking up the existing chimney, removing the old fire product and installing the new flueless bio-ethanol fireplace burner.

Modern or Traditional Flueless Bio Ethanol Fireplace?
There are a number of bioethanol fireplace manufacturers who have created no chimney fireplace designs that emulate a traditional fireplace styling including bio ethanol fire grate burners and bio ethanol wood burning stove designs. These will work with a traditional, old style, fireplace design. Choosing a traditional style fireplace is an interior design choice, for instance an ultra modern bioethanol fire design may look out of place in a traditionally styled home like an old farmhouse where a wood burner style bioethanol stove would probably work best. For more details read our guide on converting a tradition fireplace to bio ethanol fuel.
A Flueless Bio Ethanol Fire Burner is the Heat Saving Option
When burning coal, wood or gas there must be a chimney, or flue system, to remove the harmful emissions generated when the fuel is burnt. The downside of a chimney, when used as part of an open flame fire is that it becomes a permanent open door from the home to the outside. Any heat generated in the home will be drawn outside via the chimney. Modern homes are built with no chimney as they have central heating and an open chimney would take heat out making the home inefficient. If your home has no chimney then it does not mean you cannot have a real flame fireplace, that is what the Bioethanol Flueless Fire designs were created for.
