Do you have doubts about the ability to heat of the Fuecopared bioethanol fireplace? Aren’t you sure about its consumption and its energy independence?

In this page you’ll find the answers of the frequently asked questions (FAQ) about the Biofireplace Fuecopared.

1) DO FIREPLACES FUELED BY BIOETHANOL REALLY HEAT?

Like all free flames, the burners of the bio fireplaces emanate real heat!

Usually 1 liter of bioethanol develops about 3,5Kw/h from the start of his combustion and in the burners of Biofireplace Fuecopared lasts for about 3 hours.

The fireplace fueled by bioethanol performs at 100% because there is NO dispersion of heat through the chimney, so all the heat produced remains in the room.

It must NOT be conceived as the main heating form, but it contributes to increase of some degree the room temperature.

The Fuecopared bioethanol fireplace, in particular, thanks to the terracotta, optimizes its thermal performance as the flame touches the clay-made backrest, which accumulates heat, thus returning all the heat produced in the environment where it is located.

Consequently, the Biofireplace Fuecopared is the only in his genre which … REALLY HEATS !!!

2) HOW MUCH SURFACE DOES THE FIREPLACE FUELED BY BIOETHANOL HEAT?

A bioethanol fireplace on average can expand heat to an area of about 25-30 sq.m, depending on the capacity of the burner and the intensity the flame.

You have to consider, however, that fireplaces fueled by bioethanol don’t have to be conceived as an unique heating source inside an accomodation: they are first of all a furniture which, emanating fire, heat also the environment, as well as create an enjoyable atmosphere.

3) HOW MUCH DOES A BIO FIREPLACE CONSUME?

The consumptions of the bio fireplaces are indicatives, as they depend on the model, the capacity of the burner and the flame power (in Fuecopared models, it is adjustable).

4) IS IT NECESSARY AN AUTHORIZATION FOR THE USE OF THE BIO FIREPLACE?

No.

This typology of product is NOT subject to any legislation, and it doesn’t need special permits; it is necessary instead, that in the room where a bio fireplace is working, there is a minimum airflow obtained with air intakes, also on the wall, or another system with a minimum of 200 mmq.

5) DOES THE FIREPLACE FUELED BY BIOETHANOL NEED THE CHIMNEY?

The fireplace fueled by bioethanol does NOT need the chimney because the combustion of the bioethanol doesn’t produce toxic substances, odours or smoke that must be taken out with the chimney.

6) IS THE FIREPLACE FUELED BY BIOETHANOL INDEPENDENT?

Yes. 

It doesn’t need fixed connections for the supply, neither for the exhaust becuse it doesn’t have the chimney.

7) HOW DO I CLEAN A BIO FIREPLACE?

Bio fireplaces don’t need to be cleaned from ash, soot, etc.

They can be easily cleaned with a damp cloth and they do NOT need maintenance, not having valves, fans or other moving parts that can worn over time.
