Biofireplace – a luxurious decoration of an apartment

The element of fire has always attracted and fascinated a person. Tongues of flame surrounded by gracefully dancing, daring and elusive sparks, crackling logs, light smoking smoke – all this plunges into a kind of tranquility, cutting off the bustle and severity of daily problems. Bio fireplaces for an apartment are an opportunity to get a safe real live fire even in an apartment in a city high-rise building..

The non-standard form of the biofireplace will also become a decorative decoration of the interior.

Biofireplace: device and features of operation

Its “heart” is built into the biofireplace body – a burner or a fuel block filled with bioethanol. In inexpensive models, a glass burner is installed – a stainless steel container (thickness – 2 mm). Fuel blocks are more convenient and functional, thanks to the installed flap cover, the intensity of combustion is regulated. It also increases the fire safety of the fireplace, allowing you to reliably “extinguish” the flame, as well as preventing impurities (dust, suspended particles) from entering the fuel and its evaporation. Due to the complexity of the design, models of fireplaces with fuel blocks are more expensive.

To refuel the eco-fireplace, environmentally friendly fuel is used – bioethanol, obtained on a plant basis, it burns with an even flame, without smoke, sparking, soot and harmful gases, without the formation of soot.

Advice! Do not use ordinary alcohol for refueling – when it burns, a “lifeless” bluish-cold flame is obtained.

To light the fireplace, use a long match or a regular lighter. At the beginning of combustion, a characteristic pungent smell of alcohol may appear, which quickly disappears. The smell can be partially neutralized by adding aromatic oil to the fuel.

Eco fireplace was created on the basis of the “buy and use” principle, its installation is extremely simple and does not require the help of specialists – just carefully study the attached instructions..
  • ease of use – no need to harvest firewood, remove ash, clean the chimney, i.e. no problems inevitably accompanying the firebox of a wood-burning fireplace. The preparation consists simply in filling the fireplace with bioethanol, which will take a few minutes

  • safety – despite an open fire, the likelihood of a fire is extremely low. The body is carefully insulated, the heating block is designed so that when overturning, the flame is automatically blocked, and fuel does not spill, even if the tank is filled to capacity. In addition, the combustion products of biofuel are absolutely harmless to humans, do not have an unpleasant odor, soot and smoke.
  • mobility – compactness and low weight allow you to have a mobile version of the fireplace, not “tied” to one specific place. In the summer, you can take it to the country house, where in the garden it can be a lamp – a garden torch or serve as a “fire” by the pool, and the tongues of flame will play fancifully and be reflected in the water

However, a built-in eco-fireplace can perform one function that is inaccessible for a wood-burning fireplace – to be a tool for zoning a room, transforming it into functional clusters.

Advice! A bio fireplace, enclosed in glass from floor to ceiling, creates an incredible effect of light, airiness and volume, at the same time helping to divide a large room into two different functional zones.

Models of end-to-end biofireplaces are installed in the wall openings, thereby marking the boundaries between different functional (residential) zones. If the layout of the apartment allows, you can build in a three-sided through fireplace, effectively dividing the space into functional mini-territories.

By installing an end-to-end biofireplace, you can simultaneously create a homely, warm atmosphere in one or several areas of the apartment.
