Table Top Bio-Ethanol Fireplaces

Table Top Bio-Ethanol Fireplaces are relatively easy to set up and use. The products available on the market cover a wide range of design styles (see some examples below) ranging from small bowl style bio ethanol burners to square or rectangular fire blocks with a small bio ethanol burner tray. Choosing a very small or cheap model will mean that the tabletop ethanol fire will probably not include all of the latest design features. An example of a high quality version is the Chantico tabletop bioethanol fire by Planika. This includes a number of modern design features to ensue the burner is safe and will stand the test of time.

Table Top Bio-Ethanol Fireplaces

As the name suggests this style of bio ethanol fire would normally be used on a table top indoors, or on a patio table outside. The heat generated is typically small and the bio-ethanol burner is used for effect more than for generating a lot of heat. Care should be taken when using this type of bioethanol burner on a table to ensure it cannot be knocked off or tipped over. Choosing a model with a glass screen is important as it will provide protection from directly touching the flame. Another safety consideration is to select a model that has the special bioethanol burner ceramic sponge. This is a special type of ceramic material that you place inside the burner and it will soak up the fuel helping to avoid some spillages and an added benefit is that it will help to stabalise the flame. As with all fireplaces make sure you read the user instructions supplied with the product from the manufacturer before using the table top bioethanol burner.

Choosing the Right Bio-Ethanol Fireplace

When choosing a bioethanol fireplace for your home it is best to draw up a list of the criteria that you want to achieve once the fireplace is installed, typical criteria are :

  • 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 a cheap product with a cheap bioethanol fireplace insert does not last very long. Buying a well known bioethanol fireplace brand with a good online reputation, review what people have said about them online, will possibly save money in the long run. A lot of bio-ethanol fireplaces are now made in vast quantities in China.
  • Heat Output : The bigger the slot in the bioethanol burner insert 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 ethanol fireplace insert burner trays should be able to quote the heat output figure for their product when you inquire.
  • Design Style : There are many styles of bio ethanol fire insert to choose from small to large. Have a clear idea of the style you want eg freestanding models can be portable and used in different places in 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 models have a backing plate and glass screen giving a contemporary style while others have a fascia which can be in various finishes.
  • 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 fireplace. This is due to the emissions, or smoke, that can be given off when the gel burner begins to run out of fuel. Read our guide to bioethanol fuel.
  • Accessories : Some models are offered with a glass screen which gives some level of protection from the flame. You can also choose 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.
  • 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 fireplace before using the fire.
  • Ventilation : 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, or if you like a, no chimney fire, that uses clean burning bioethanol fuel.
