Chesneys Alchemy Bioethanol Fires

We have been keeping up to date with the advance of bioethanol fires. As a result, we are now delighted to offer Chesneys Alchemy Bioethanol Fire Collection.  However, before we introduce the product range here is a little more information about Bioethanol Fires.

Bioethanol Fires

What are Bioethanol Fires?

A Bioethanol fire is a real flame fire which runs on Bioethanol fuel instead of logs, smokeless fuels or gas.  The ecologically friendly fuel is produced from plants.  When ignited it, burns without smoke. As a result, the only by products released during burning are water vapour, CO2 and heat. Consequently, as there are no emissions this eliminates the need for any chimneys or flues which makes the installation much simpler.

Bioethanol fuel burns with 98% efficiency.  It burns cleanly and when lit there is no smell. In short, it is ease to use, clean and efficient.

Does A Bioethanol Fire give off heat?

Yes, is the short answer.  Like any combustion process, heat is produced and the amount of heat depends on the bioethanol fire. However, a bioethanol fire is not a primary source of heat for your home but is perfect for adding atmosphere and top up heat.

What are the benefits of a Bioethanol Fires?

The biggest benefits are that the fuel is eco friendly and the installation is much less intrusive.  There is no requirement any flue or chimney, as a result, they are a great option for any room in your home, from lounge, snug rooms, dining rooms or bedrooms.  For homes where it is  challenging to install a wood burning or gas stove, due to the construction of the building, thatched properties or where there are planning restrictions, there is now a real flame, eco friendly option available.
