HOW DOES IT WORK?
The term ventless fireplace actually refers to the biofireplace or ethanol fireplace, which is getting more and more popular. A ventless fireplace (or biofireplace, if you prefer that more) does not work with wood, coal or any other conventional material as these produce toxic gases during combustion and therefore require a chimney and smoke ventilation. As the name of the product includes the word "bio", which is popping up in more and more places, we can immediately think that this is a modern solution that is completely environment-friendly and not at all dangerous to our health.
The ventless fireplace, with a brilliant new solution, eliminates the need for a chimney when you want a fireplace in your home. In the fireplace, a special material is burned, a kind of alcohol, which is environment-friendly, safe to use and does not require a chimney at all.
It should be mentioned that these types of fireplaces (ventless fireplaces, biofireplaces, ethanol fireplaces) are in fact display fireplaces, so their main purpose is not to warm your home, but to create a cozy atmosphere and the sight of a real fireplace in your home. However, since the fire burning in the fireplaces is real, ventless fireplaces can also release heat during their operation.
Such a ventless fireplace or biofireplace, depending on the surface size of combustion, has approx. a heating power of 1-3 kwh.
