Flueless, environmentally friendly fireplaces
So deeply embedded is our notion of what a fireplace should be that one’s first look at an EcoSmart Fire is typically surprising. The source of fuel is not at all apparent: EcoSmart Fire utilizes denatured ethanol rather than wood, so only the flame is visible. Unlike natural-gas fireplaces, EcoSmart does not require installation or utility connection of a fuel supply.
According to its manufacturer, the Fire Company, EcoSmart Fire makes an efficient and effective heating solution, with an easily regulated flame. EcoSmart installations are defined by minimalist, modern profiles, indicating a refreshing departure from ponderous, traditional masonry boxes. Moreover, their modular construction makes them suitable for most architectural environments.
