Bioethanol fires are a popular choice these days when it comes to home design, but what not everyone realises is that they are also a very efficient way to heat your home. Because bioethanol fires produce clean, attractive flames similar to those of candles, many people assume that they are designed more as a decorative element and do not give off much heat, but that is actually not the case.

Compared to an average electric stove, the average bioethanol stove will produce a third more heat. This is usually measured in kilowatt-hours (kWh), with the electric stove giving you 2kWh, while the typical bioethanol stove gives you 3kWh at the highest setting.

As you might expect, the bioethanol fire certainly does not need to be run at full power all the time to heat even large rooms in the coldest weather. It also has many advantages over other types of fireplaces - unlike electric fires, it is safe to install them even in rooms where there is a lot of water, such as the bathroom, and unlike wood or coal fires, they are smokeless, and do not require any ventilation openings, such as a flu or chimney.
