Frequently Asked Questions

    Bioethanol is a flammable colorless liquid that is actually ethanol. Ethanol, on the other hand, is produced from either oil or biomass. It is the ethanol produced from biomass that is most often called bioethanol. It is chemically identical to petroleum-derived ethanol. Bioethanol, unlike ethanol, is a renewable biofuel that is considered one of the most promising substitutes for fossil fuels. During combustion, bioethanol reacts with oxygen to produce carbon dioxide, water vapor and heat:

2 H 5 OH  +  3 O 2  →  2 CO 2  +  3 H 2 O  + heat

    Also, no odors are emitted and that is why this particular fuel product is used. Due to the great interest, various flavors are added to the fuel, which you can see on the website in the Bioethanol category.

    Bio fireplaces are the perfect solution for a real - live fire in any home. Before we start with the explanation of what they are, we will make a similarity - maybe they are the modern version of the old gas lanterns (lamps). At the heart of each bio fireplace is a bio container (combustion chamber) in which fuel is added and burned, and some exterior cladding resembling a classic fireplace, a gas lantern (lamp) or some non-standard design solution. Our core business is producing precisely such non-standard Bio on request.

    No, bio fireplaces are not harmful to your health, because burning bio ethanol produces only water vapor and carbon dioxide. It is recommended to ventilate the room for a few minutes after turning off the biofireplace.

    The cost is different for different models. Overall, as a large combustion chamber that is higher costs. For the little ones it is 0.2l / h. and can reach over 2 l / h. for large custom models. At a bio ethanol price of about BGN 5 / l, it turns out that the costs are from BGN 1 / h. and reach BGN 10 / h.

    The combustion of bioethanol does not emit any harmful gases and odors, but emits water vapor and carbon dioxide. As everyone knows, these are substances that are present in the atmosphere and we are constantly inhaling and exhaling them.

     The combustion of one liter of bioethanol emits carbon dioxide equal to the amount released during the combustion of two medium-sized candles.

     We maintain a wide range of aromatic essential oils that can be placed in a fireproof container with water next to the bio container(combustion chamber) or directly a few drops in it before ignition, thus emitting a pleasant odor that fills the room.

    Only bioethanol with a purity of no more than 97% is used!


    In absolutely no case do not add other fuels - alcohol, gasoline, turpentine, various oils, etc., because in some of them the ignition in the combustion chamber can lead to an explosion and subsequent fire. The gases released during combustion are harmful and can lead to suffocation! Keep a fire extinguisher near the fireplace.

    When using a biofireplace, several basic rules of operation must be followed to avoid accidents such as fire, burns, etc.

  1. The fuel is poured into the combustion chamber, taking care not to spill outside it. Filling is performed until the indicator for the maximum amount of the combustion chamber is reached. If such an indicator is missing, it is filled until 3/4 of the volume of the combustion chamber is reached, or in other words, one finger remains until it is completely filled.
  2. Ignition of fuel is the most dangerous from the point of view of safety. It is done with a suitable long lighter - they are served to the combustion chamber already lit. Using small lighters or matches with short sticks can cause burns. In the beginning, after ignition, the flame is small and with a predominant blue color, and after heating the chamber and the fuel, the flame becomes larger and yellow. Then, in some biofireplaces, the flame can be adjusted.
  3. The last stage is extinguishing the fireplace - we recommend that you let it burn all the fuel in it and go out on its own. Of course, each biofireplace has a damper mounted in the form of a metal sheet or other metal device. In some biofireplaces, this extinguisher also acts as a flame regulator. Under no circumstances use other objects or water to extinguish the flame. Also, do not blow into the chamber - this adds oxygen to the fuel, the flame ignites and becomes larger.

    The bioethanol is poured into the biofireplace just before it is ignited. Do not leave fuel in the bio container (combustion chamber) for a long time before it is ignited or extinguished.


    
In no case DO NOT REFILL bioethanol during the burning of the biofireplace - the fuel will ignite in the vessel from which you pour it and you can get burns and make a fire!

    Turn off the fireplace, wait about 10 minutes, make sure there is no flame and then start refueling.

You definitely can't use it as a primary heat source, but rather as an additional one. As with any combustion process, the combustion of bioethanol is accompanied by the release of a large amount of heat. After lighting the bio fireplace, the temperature around it starts to rise relatively quickly and after a few minutes your home will start to heat up. This heat will reduce the heat output from the main source (convector, air conditioner, etc.).

    No, bio fireplaces don't need chimney, because burning bio ethanol produces only water vapor and carbon dioxide. It is recommended to ventilate the room for a few minutes after turning off the biofireplace.

Combustion of bioethanol produces only water vapor and carbon dioxide. A minimal amount of soot can be released in the first few minutes of lighting the fireplace, due to incomplete combustion of bioethanol. The amount is negligible and there can be no talk of pollution.

 The safety glass serves to prevent direct contact with the flame. During combustion, its temperature is high and should not be touched to prevent burns. These glasses are tempered and fireproof. It can be broken by hitting another object, but not by heating the fireplace.

According to the consumer protection law of the Republic of Bulgaria (EU), our bio fireplaces have a two-year warranty.
