Enjoy an Environmentally-friendly Fire in Your Wood-burning Fireplace
If you read that title, scratched your head and possibly even did a "head tilt" your dog is so famous for, rest-assured this is a perfectly normal reaction. There is absolutely nothing environmentally-friendly about a wood-burning fireplace. So, how are you supposed to enjoy a fire in one without worrying about deforestation and damage being done in the environment? Well, believe it or not, this is easily accomplished by using one of the grates or inserts we have available here at Ethanol Fireplace Pros.
What are Grates and Inserts?
The fireplace has likely long been the centerpiece in your home. You probably have a ton of memories you have enjoyed there, from warming up after sledding or ice-skating on the pond to opening presents in front of it Christmas morning. So, simply letting it go to waste is a little saddening. Fortunately, thanks to grates and inserts you don't have to!
These products allow you to transform that beautiful wood-burning fireplace into one that can be enjoyed with a clear and safe fuel source, known as bio-ethanol. They simply get placed inside and you can enjoy a fire in an instant. You will never have to scoop soot and ash or have your chimney swept again because this fire is clean and maintenance-free.
What is Bio Ethanol?
Bio ethanol is a fuel source that has been popular with environmentalists for quite some time. Do not feel like you are "behind the times" though, if you are just learning about it. It has only recently become super popular in consumer-based products. Bio ethanol fireplaces were extremely expensive and limited in design many years ago, but thanks to such a high demand, there is now a huge selection to choose from, and one to fit in any budget.
Ethanol is produced from agricultural feedstock, making it a quasi-renewable energy source. This feedstock use photosynthesis for growth and mature rapidly. Examples include sugar cane, barley, hemp, potato, hemp, sunflower, sugar beet, corn, wheat, and molasses. The cellulose part of the plant gets broken down to sugar and converted to ethanol.
There is no lengthy installation process to transform your fireplace. All you have to do is pick one of the ethanol grates or inserts we have here at Ethanol Fireplace Pros, and place your order. In the meantime, you can clean your fireplace out one last time and get rid of that wood pile. When your grate or burner arrives you place it inside, pour in the fuel, ignite, and enjoy your clean and odor-free fire.
