Alcohol Fireplaces - Eco Friendly Home Heating
Home and Hearth Outfitters is proud to offer the latest concept in environmentally friendly home heating - the alcohol burning fireplace. Made in Australia, the EcoSmart™ Fire is an open, flue-less fireplace that requires no installation, no vent, and no utility connection for a fuel supply of any kind.
We live in an age where finding sustainable resources and reducing the impact of human living on the environment are increasingly vital to our survival and prosperity. Therefore there exists a demand for clean, safe, alcohol burning fireplaces that do not release any hazardous emissions into the atmosphere.
The EcoSmart™ alcohol burning fireplace is fueled by a modern renewable energy source called denatured ethanol. Ethanol is a natural substance produced by the fermentation process of agricultural products such as sugarcane, bananas and wheat. Because pure ethanol is 100% alcohol, it must be denatured with various biological products before it can be sold, to avoid human consumption. Denatured ethanol burns as clean as pure ethanol, resulting in a clean, greenhouse compliant combustion of heat, steam and carbon dioxide.
Because alcohol burning fireplaces are completely open, lack a flue and require no connection or vent, they offer near limitless flexibility in interior design. They are perfect for small spaces such as apartments, bars and offices. Yet they would be equally at home in any large house or upscale restaurant in Denver.
Safe, Easy and Efficient
Alcohol burning fireplaces made by EcoSmart™ Fire are safe, simple to use and virtually maintenance free. The flame is easy to regulate and can be turned on and off as desired. You can also control the amount of heat generated by the alcohol burning fireplace, as well as the amount of denatured ethanol being used in this eco fireplace. What’s more, because its main by-products are carbon dioxide, water steam and heat, this substance is certified safe to burn indoors without venting.
Because they are flue-less, alcohol burning fireplaces are also incredibly efficient. All the heat that is normally expelled from the house via flue as a result of residual emissions remains circulating in the home. The burner safely houses a flammable liquid in the form of an open flame in a controlled environment, making it safe to operate in virtually any space.
