Open Fire & BioEthanol
When winter comes there is often nothing better than sitting in front of an open fire and feeling the flames warm the air and illuminate the room. The wood crackles, the smoke escapes up the chimney and everything just feels warm and cosy.
Why wait until winter though, a stunning open fire can become the focal point of your room any time of year. Even when it’s not lit!
But maybe you have other plans and are looking at something that replicates all the benefits of a traditional open fire but are looking for a more modern approach- that’s when you go looking for a Bioethanol fire. An eco-friendly way to heat your home via flame!

Open fire or stove?
It is like an age-old debate. Which is better? Shall I get a stove or an open fire? Well, for the sake of profits we would say both but to maintain our levels of customer service that we are so proud of, we have to sit on the fence. Both provide fantastic benefits in terms of heat and appearance but as you are on this particular page, it seems likely that open fires have already taken the pride of place in the living room in your mind.
You wouldn’t be wrong in choosing one either. Especially if you like the idea of a real, authentic fire in the room. The aroma from the wood burning, the dance of the flames and the ambience they can create mean that an open fire can lend itself to a variety of different room types. Where stoves tend to be based on more contemporary looks, open fires encompass both the modern and classic aesthetic allowing you to find one no matter what style of room you have.
Suitable fuels for open fires
Open fires are a popular choice among many people due to the versatility they offer. Where some fires rely on just one fuel type to be able to function properly, an open fire can have any fuel source (within reason!) burn on it. This can result in savings when compared to other types of fire as should you be out of one fuel source, you can easily use another one. Logs, coal and kindling can all be burnt on an open fire and are all in ready supply. You would just need to check if the area you live in has any restrictions over the types of fuel burned. If you burn something not allowed in your area you might get fined, and nobody wants that! Defra has an interactive map that can help give you information, but we would always suggest you contact your local council for complete clarity.
At Ignition Fires we have been helping people in Surrey and well beyond find the perfect open fire for their home and as a result can also advise on the best fuels suitable for your home. In fact, our team have been supplying fires of all types across the South East for over 30 years!
Bioethanol fires are fast becoming a fireplace of choice for those shopping for something that gives an excellent heat source as well as being environmentally friendly and safe. And at Ignition Fires, we love them! We truly believe they are the fireplace that more and more people will turn too.
With no need for a chimney, as they give off no smoke, a bio-ethanol fire can be enjoyed regardless of the rules surrounding smoke-controlled zones.
In addition to the lack of smoke, an additional eco-benefit is the way the fuel burns. At 98% efficiency, it is a clean-burning fuel which means you are left with no residue or horrible smells as your fire burns.
Add in the hassle-free installation and you have an eco-friendly, safe, smoke-free fire that provides you with a real flame, real heat and no wasted energy! You can even adjust the flame if you like!
