In this manner, does bio ethanol fuel give off carbon monoxide?
Yes, they are. Bioethanol fires do produce CO2 (carbon dioxide), but not only is this substance present in very small amounts, but it is also a by-product of any real fire. All of this, of course, means that bioethanol fires are safe to have both inside and outside the home!
Similarly, are bio ethanol fires expensive to run? In comparison to the running costs of gas and wood burning fires, bio fuel fires are not expensive to run, and when compared with the operating costs of other fireplace types, bio fuel fires came out cheapest. However, the average running cost of any bioethanol fire can vary due to the 3 main factors of consumption.
Simply so, are bioethanol fires dangerous?
Yes, ethanol biofuel fireplaces are safe to burn indoors. Reading through the scientific jargon, ethanol fireplaces do in fact produce C02 but this is a byproduct of ANY real fire. Fire needs oxygen to burn, and this is just the same with an ethanol fueled fire.
Do bio ethanol fireplaces smell?
The best thing about burning a bioethanol fuel is that no dangerous particles and fumes are produced. Biofire places produce a real flame, so there is very slight smell of ethanol during combustion as nothing that burns can be completely odourless, but the scent is barely present and does not bother 99.9% of people.
