Fire, apart from heating the interior, also creates a warm and welcoming atmosphere when it is cold outside. And even if we tend to immediately think of wood as a source of energy for heating the interior, there are other alternatives such as, for example, gas fireplace
and the ethanol fireplace.
In this article, we will introduce you to the benefits of fireplace s gas and ethanol to help you choose the best alternative for you, between these two options.
Gas fireplace in a modern design living room
The fireplaces gases are fed by natural gas and can be operated even by a single button. When they work, the indicator light is on and the gas is heating the room. The fire is very similar to that produced by wood and gas fireplaces can be traditional, to integrate or freestanding. Ethanol chimneys work by pouring ethanol into the ignition box that provides and ignites the fire. Like gas fireplaces, ethanol fireplaces are available in a wide variety of styles and can be freestanding or integrate.

When it comes to knowing how much heat can produce each type of fireplace, the gas fireplace is the big winner. Although the ethanol fireplace produces some heat, in addition to its decorative effect, it is not enough to heat a room completely and can not be used as a main heat. The ethanol chimney usually produces 2-3.5 kW of heat. For this reason, it is more suitable for small spaces or simply as a decorative element. For comparison, the modern gas fireplace can produce from 3 kW to 15 kW and can therefore be used as the main heating.

As for the installation, the gas fireplaces must be installed by a specialist and require a gas connection and a ventilation flue to evacuate the gas combustion to the outside. Ethanol chimneys can be attached to a base, but they do not need a vent flue. It is also possible to purchase a self-supporting ethanol fireplace or integrated in the coffee table, for example. That's why they do not need installation. They are also more expensive.

Most gas fireplaces can be lit by a button or remote control. For their part, ethanol fireplaces require a little more effort to turn them on. You have to fill them with bio-ethanol (about 1 to 2 liters) by hand and then light them with a special lighter. The choice of fireplace you will make will depend entirely on your personal preferences and needs. Both types of fireplaces are modern and very elegant and come in a wide variety of shapes, styles and colors.
