Why EcoSmart Fire?
From design flexibility to ultimate safety, learn about the features that set EcoSmart Fire apart from other fireplace brands.
What maintenance is required for ethanol fireplaces?
Clean your EcoSmart Fire unit after you have used 50 liters [13.20 Gal.] of fuel or as soon as you notice black deposits on or near the burner of the ethanol fireplace. Black marks can be removed from the stone, solid surfaces or stainless steel with a mild abrasive washing product such as JIF or similar. It is recommended to test a small area first to ensure the cleaning product chosen is appropriate and will not mark or damage the surface. Burners can be washed as required in hot soapy water (even in your dishwasher) from time to time and the internal mechanics won’t deteriorate like some other brands as all internal parts are stainless steel.
Where is the best place to install an ethanol fireplace?
Our ethanol fireplaces can be installed virtually anywhere - in walls, cabinets, high rise buildings, commercial / residential / hospitality spaces, indoors and outdoors. Because EcoSmart Fire’s ethanol fireplaces are ventless, they require no gas line, no electricity, and no chimney for a hassle free and cost effective installation. Our ethanol fireplaces have been designed and tested with safety as our top priority. We have outlined requirements for each ethanol burner, ethanol fireplace insert, and ethanol freestanding fireplace in our collection. These guidelines include minimum room size requirements and clearance recommendations for flammable materials and movable objects. Please refer to our manual for more information.
What is the difference between gel and EcoSmart Fire’s ethanol fireplaces?
There are key differences between gel fireplaces and ethanol fireplaces in terms of operation and performance. Gel fireplaces are operated by inserting and lighting tin cans filled with gel. The cans act as the burner mechanism. Gel fireplaces do not produce a long coherent flame as known from ethanol fireplaces and can be difficult to extinguish. EcoSmart Fire’s ethanol fireplaces use a clean burning liquid fuel made with fermented plants. The fuel is housed in a ethanol burner that allows for safe and easy operation. Ethanol fireplaces produce a beautiful, vibrant dancing flame. Gel fuel should never be used within an ethanol fireplace.
Where do I buy ethanol fuel for my ethanol fireplace?

What is an ethanol fireplace?
An ethanol fireplace is a ventless fireplace that is powered by bioethanol fuel. Plants like corn or sugarcane are fermented to make bioethanol fuel. Ethanol fireplaces produce a beautiful, warm and vibrant flame. Clean burning and eco-friendly, ethanol fires release heat, carbon dioxide (the same stuff we exhale) and steam. Ethanol fires do not require a chimney, vent, gas line, or electricity and can be installed virtually anywhere - indoors or outdoors.

Will my EcoSmart Fire heat the room?
All EcoSmart Fires are ventless, meaning all the heat stays in the room rather than escaping up a flue. Increased heat retention means increased fuel efficiency and a better chance of staying warm. While providing warmth, EcoSmart Fires are not designed to be used as a room’s primary heat source. Please see the burner section in our manual for full details.
Which EcoSmart Fire is right for me?
Ethanol Burners - Our Ethanol Burners are at the heart of every EcoSmart Fire. They are both the containers of the clean-burning bioethanol and the source of the flame. Completely self-contained, the burners have no need for exterior tanks or utility lines and their stainless steel bodies make them suitable for both interior and exterior use. The XL burners offer a linear flame while the BK5 burner has a substantial and adjustable flame housed in a compact body. EcoSmart’s AB Series offers a round burner ideal for fire pits or other circular fireplace designs.
Fireplace Inserts - Fireplace Inserts are stainless steel enclosures that house EcoSmart’s burners. They can be installed into walls or cabinets and, just like the burners, are suitable for indoor and outdoor use. All of our fireboxes are zero clearance, meaning that the dimensions of the firebox are the exact dimensions of the opening you’ll need in your wall. The fireboxes, like all our products, are vent free and its zero clearance dimensions mean installation is hassle free.
Freestanding Fireplaces - Created as standalone units, the models in our Design Fireplaces range require little set up and no installation. These units are completely self-contained and offer the same clean burning flame as our fireplace inserts without any of the installation requirements. Used as a room centrepiece or even as a space divider, Design Fireplaces offer the luxury of fire without any of the restrictions. You can even move the units from room to room as your fire needs change.
Outdoor Fireplaces - Whether used on a table top or as glowing ambience set along a pathway, EcoSmart’s Outdoor Fireplaces offer a wide range of stylish fire feature options. Made of steel and glass, the outdoor units are designed and built to withstand the outdoors.
