Ethanol fireplaces are a simple, stylish investment that will add ambiance to your home. Unlike wood-burning fireplaces, ethanol fireplaces need no chimney, because their fuel burns clean. This gives you more flexibility with installation, as long as you make sure your space has good ventilation. Be aware, though, that ethanol fireplaces don’t put out a lot of heat – they’re more for show than warming. If you’re looking for a model to use indoors or on a patio, be sure to choose one with appropriate ventilation. For outdoors, however, you may want to look for something portable so you can move it until you find that perfect spot.
