So you are considering buying a flueless fire for your home? This could be because your home has no chimney or the chimney that is already there needs repair or blocking up. Either way, Flueless Bioethanol Fireplaces are a great solution. First lets define what the word flueless means. A flue can be defined as a duct or extraction system that is used by any fuel burning product that generates harmful waste gases that need to be vented to the outside. This can be an old coal fire in a home using a chimney or a coal fired power station with large chimneys, or even your car burning petrol or diesel, the exhaust pipe is a type of flue system. In a home context if you are burning coal, gas or oil then there will need to be a “flue” to extract the harmful waste products that these organic fuels generate when they are burned. Some people call it a flue, some people call it a chimney, it is the same thing, a pipe that takes away harmful gases and vents them to the air to be diluted.
With Flueless Bioethanol Fireplaces the fuel that is burned is very clean with very small amount of bi products given off. Therefore they are classed as “flueless” or “no chimney” eg they do not need to have one to be used in a home. In summary, a flueless bioethanol fireplace does not need a chimney as it is designed to use a biofuel burner tray that burns bioethanol fuel, which is a clean burning, sustainable, biofuel source.
