What Are Bioethanol Fires?

Bioethanol fires are perfect for those looking for a more decorative feature without spending large amounts. Most models can simply be placed in a room without the need for building works (unless, of course, you want to make it a full feature). They are filled using 1.ltr bottles and have almost zero emissions, so no chimney is required.

Please note, these fires are not intended as a main heating source, as they average between 2-4kw of power. Bioethanol bottles are sold separately and will not be sold to anyone under the age of 18. Care must be taken when refuelling and any spillages must be soaked up immediately. The log and pebble effects are sold separately, but are not needed.

It is recommended that a clearance of at least 50-60cm is left above any open type burners. It is highly recommended that you don't leave the open style burners unattended for long periods; extinguish them and relight when required as they only take seconds to light. Delivery times can vary throughout the year so please ring for details.

FAQs

Do I need a chimney liner?

Yes, most jobs will require to have the chimney lined as it improves the efficiency of the appliance, and is also much safer than using an old chimney.

Do you install appliances we have purchased elsewhere?

Yes, provided they are C.E marked with British Standards and suitable for purpose. However, any warranty issues will have to be pursued by yourselves through the supplier of the appliance.

Do you take away site waste after completion of the job?

Yes. We will remove all rubble/rubbish we have created during the job once completed.

Do you install any types of open fires?

We don’t install any form of open fires anymore as they are not good for the environment and can often cause issues.

Do you do home visits to provide estimates?

Yes, we will do free home visits in Scarborough and the surrounding areas, within approximately a 30-mile radius.

Should we have our chimney swept before an installation?

Yes, we recommend this as it lets us know that we can safely line the chimney. Yearly sweeping should be carried out on any solid fuel appliance, along with annual servicing of all appliances.

 
 

Testimonials

"Lewis did a first class job, to say the bathroom was a challenge is an understatement. However, Lewis just got on with the job nothing was too much trouble. He was on time and stayed late at night and was always very polite, and he also did an  excellent job tiling it as well. Would highly recommend Lewis."

"Lewis quoted me to replace an open fire with a stove. I was nervous as the fireplace is original and precious, but felt reassured by Lewis’s empathy and passion for safety, aesthetics and function.

Lewis and Elliot worked very hard over two days to transform the tired open fire into a fabulous stove and surrounding, whilst truly caring about the genres of the house and most importantly keeping my beautiful surround intact.

I absolutely love it and would recommend them wholeheartedly.

Thank you"
