An outdoor bioethanol fireplace or bioethanol garden fires can add a nice feature to an outside living area like a patio or garden terrace. A bio ethanol patio heater is a modern choice to replace either a wood burning or LPG gas bottle patio heater that have been popular in the past. Unlike a wood burning outdoor fireplace, with a outdoor bioethanol fireplace there is no smoke or mess to clean up. Despite being smaller than old traditional outdoor fires an bio ethanol patio heater will still supply some heat, and light, on a cool summer night.
There are many styles of outdoor bioethanol fire and bioethanol garden fires, in many different materials and in various levels of quality.

Outdoor Bio-Ethanol Fires (Garden Fireplace)
When choosing an outdoor ethanol fireplace it should be considered where the bio ethanol patio heater will be positioned to ensure it is safe. As bioethanol garden fires have burner that contains liquid fuel the most important safety consideration is to ensure the bioethanol burner cannot be knocked over or touched. If it is to be placed in an area where people are moving around a lot it is my opinion that bioethanol garden fires should either be fitted with ceramic wool sponge or should be of a type that uses gel fuel or gel fuel cans. When choosing your outdoor ethanol fireplace think of how the bioethanol outdoor heater will be securely positioned, also you should choose an outdoor bioethanol fireplace that includes some form of glass screen.
Choosing a bioethanol outdoor heater model that also has bioethanol burner ceramic sponge added is also a good safety consideration. The ceramic wool sponge helps to prevent spillages and also stabilises the flame. If you choose a cheap outdoor ethanol fireplace model without the ceramic wool then you may be able to buy this online to upgrade your bio ethanol patio heater burner. The wool can be used with gel fuel so ensure you have the right burner before upgrading.
Choosing a bioethanol outdoor heater model with a glass screen will ensure someone cannot directly touch the flame and it will stop the flame being blown around by the wind, this is also improved by using the ceramic wool. The bioethanol fireplace should be supplied with a user manual showing important safety and installation instructions and will guide you through the process of setting up and using your new bioethanol outdoor heater.

Choosing the Right Bio-Ethanol Fireplace
When choosing a bioethanol fireplace for your home or garden it is best to draw up a list of the criteria that you want to achieve once the outdoor bioethanol fireplace is installed. Some typical criteria when choosing an bio ethanol patio heater are :
- Bio Ethanol Fireplace Brand : As with all things the cheaper something is the less technology and cost that has been invested in the manufacture. This may mean that cheap bioethanol garden fires with a cheap bioethanol burner insert may not last very long. A lot of outdoor bioethanol fireplace are now made in vast quantities in China. Buying a well known bioethanol outdoor heater brand is most likely the safest option and will possibly save money in the long run. Review the companies making outdoor ethanol fireplace products with a good online reputation, review what people have said about them online.
- Bio Ethanol Burner Heat Output : The bigger the burner area used by the bioethanol outdoor heater the larger the flame and heat that will be given off. A typical bio ethanol fireplace insert that has a 300mm wide by 20mm deep slot will give off around 2Kw to 3Kw which is similar to adding a small radiator in to the room. Choosing a much wider burner will increase this heat output for instance a 1m wide bioethanol fire insert burner could give out anything up to 10Kw which may be too much heat for the room. A good quality manufacturer of outdoor bioethanol fireplace burner trays should be able to quote the heat output figure for their product when you inquire.
- Bio Ethanol Fireplace Design Style : There are many styles of bio ethanol patio heater to choose from small to large. Have a clear idea of the style of bioethanol outdoor heater that you want eg freestanding burner models can be portable and used in different places both in and outside the home. Fixed, built-in or wall mounted fires are part of a room design or style and may have a clean letterbox style or have a metal fascia. Some smaller burner models have a backing plate and glass screen giving a contemporary style while others have a fascia which can be in various finishes.
- Type of Bio Fuel : Bio-ethanol Fuel is different to Gel Fuel, bioethanol fuel tends to be clear and will be easily spilled like water, gel fuel, is mostly supplied in cans and has a very thick appearance, sometimes yellow or green in colour. It is my personal opinion that gel fuel should only be used outside in an outdoor ethanol fireplace. This is due to the emissions, or smoke, that can be given off when the gel burner begins to run out of fuel. If you are unsure of what type of fuel or burner to look for when buying your new bio ethanol patio heater the Read our guide to bioethanol fuel. as shown in the top menu.
- Accessories : Some outdoor ethanol fireplace models are offered with a glass screen which gives some level of protection to the burner and from the flame. You can also choose some bio burner models with stones and pebbles as decoration however if choosing this option the decoration must be used as instructed by the manufacturer. For more information read our guide to adding pebbles to a bio ethanol fire.
- Bio Ethanol Fire Safety : There are safety considerations like storage of the bioethanol fuel, protection from the flame and handling of the fuel to consider if you have never used this style of fireplace before. Always read the manufacturers instructions supplied with the outdoor bioethanol fireplace before using the fire.
- Fireplace Ventilation Requirements : When the bio-ethanol fuel is burned there is moisture given off, the bigger the burner and flame the more moisture. This will crate condensation on walls and windows unless proper ventilation is used. This can be in the form of a fixed free air vent or simply opening a window.

Why Change to a BioEthanol Fireplace?
There are number of positives to look at when considering your next fireplace purchase. Buying a Gas, Electric or Wood Burning fireplace from a retailer may involve complicated installation work that can be costly and, especially in the case of wood there are issues over storage of the fuel and the mess caused by the ash. Also, apart from the electric fire, a gas or wood burning fire will need a chimney, something that a lot of modern houses do not have. Did you know that bioethanol flueless fire designs do not need a chimney or flue system to be used? This means they are perfect for new, modern homes. They are also a great solution for older homes that have a faulty chimney that needs to be repaired. Or you may be looking to block up or remove an existing chimney to reduce your heating bills.
Either way, flueless bioethanol fireplaces are a great, cost effective heating solution for a room where secondary heat is required. They are also good for the environment, unlike burning gas or coal. That is why it is best to look at the options and guides that are shown on the website before making a decision on your next fireplace purchase. Choose a flueless fire burner, or if you like a, no chimney fire, that uses clean burning bioethanol fuel.
