What maintenance is required for ethanol fireplaces?
Clean your EcoSmart Fire unit after you have used 50 liters [13.20 Gal.] of fuel or as soon as you notice black deposits on or near the burner of the ethanol fireplace. Black marks can be removed from the stone, solid surfaces or stainless steel with a mild abrasive washing product such as JIF or similar. It is recommended to test a small area first to ensure the cleaning product chosen is appropriate and will not mark or damage the surface.

What is the difference between gel and EcoSmart Fire’s ethanol fireplaces?
There are key differences between gel fireplaces and ethanol fireplaces in terms of operation and performance. Gel fireplaces are operated by inserting and lighting tin cans filled with gel. The cans act as the burner mechanism. Gel fireplaces do not produce a long coherent flame as known from ethanol fireplaces and can be difficult to extinguish. EcoSmart Fire’s ethanol fireplaces use a clean burning liquid fuel made with fermented plants. The fuel is housed in a ethanol burner that allows for safe and easy operation. Ethanol fireplaces produce a beautiful, vibrant dancing flame. Gel fuel should never be used within an ethanol fireplace.

Which heater model is the best for me?
This depends on the installation environment. If you own an open terrace, where sometimes the wind is blowing, we highly recommend only the SPOT power heatres.
But if you want to heat your glass house, conservatory or loggia, we entrust the ambient heaters VISION to you. These perfectly match well covered areas.
A rule of thumb is: The more open the area the more open the heater has to be – even if the other model looks nicer and is pleasing you more.
What is the shelf life of e-NRG bioethanol fuel?
The shelf life is 3 years if kept in a tightly sealed container and in a cool, dry area (approx 69°F).
Will my EcoSmart Fire heat the room?
All EcoSmart Fires are ventless, meaning all the heat stays in the room rather than escaping up a flue. Increased heat retention means increased fuel efficiency and a better chance of staying warm. While providing warmth, EcoSmart Fires are not designed to be used as a room’s primary heat source. Please see the burner section in our manual for full details.
