Firepits and fireplaces have become the outdoor accessory for Outdoorlicious! patios. Extending the outdoor living season by adding warmth to a chilly evening is probably the best reason for adding an outdoor heat source but the romance and ambiance of a fire is a very close second.
Evolving from the chimeneyas of the 90’s and early years of the new millennium, firepits are particularly attractive to homeowners. Their relative low cost compared to constructing an outdoor fireplace and their portability have made this type of outdoor fire source extremely popular. Additionally, many firepits have dual functionality as a table.
There’s nothing like the smell of a wood fire but there are most certainly issues to think about before installing a wood burning fireplace or firepit. While some people prefer wood burning fires, others prefer the easy on/off and no-mess of gas.
Another option is using a self-contained bioethanol burner.
Bioethanol is a renewable liquid fuel produced from agricultural by-products.
No smoke is produced and there is no need for a flue or chimney and no need for gas or electricity. There is no mess and, as a heat source, it is very effective.
If you already have a wood burning fireplace or firepit, it is relatively easy to retrofit your wood burner into a clean burner in no time. Set the burner into your existing container or firebox and surround it with stones or decorative fire glass.
I know many people who don’t use the fireplaces inside their homes because they don’t have gas installed or choose not to burn wood. A bioethanol burner is a great choice in situations such as this.
Inside or out, a bioethanol burner can transform an out of date, unused fireplace into a much-loved feature at your home.
