5 Ethanol Fireplace Fuel Safety Tips

USE ETHANOL FIREPLACE FUEL SAFELY

Ethanol Fireplace Fuel when used according to the instructions on the ethanol fuel bottle, and the fireplace manufacturer’s instructions, can provide a safe and enjoyable experience for you and your family. In fact, Ethanol Fireplace Fuel created by Nu-Flame® is the safest, cleanest burning Ethanol Fireplace Fuel product on the market today.

Nu-Flame® has made ethanol fireplace fuel safety their top priority. Their ethanol fuel bottle includes a patent-pending ‘Safety Pour Bottle’ incorporating a flame arrestor in the throat of each bottle, preventing flames from entering the bottle and causing a flash explosion. This technology enhances the safety of their product. Each bottle is labeled with clear, detailed, easy-to-understand product safety information ensuring you are well informed as to the proper use of the fuel and the inherent dangers that can result if you don’t follow the instructions.

Watch this short video and see what can happen when using fuel bottled by other companies, without the use of a flame arrestor: UNSAFE BOTTLES .

We find It difficult to understand why anyone would choose to pour ethanol from an unprotected bottle.

Nu-Flame® – CLEAN BURNING ETHANOL FUEL

Nu-Flame® Fireplace Fuel product burns clean, with no emission of harmful toxins into the surrounding air. Harmless water vapor along with trace amounts of Carbon Dioxide are the only byproduct of burning this fuel in your ethanol fireplace. As a result, our ethanol fuel is completely toxin free and is not harmful to inhale. Our ethanol fuel is suitable to be used indoors without any concern about air quality. As an added benefit, an Ethanol Fireplace provides an efficient source of heat. Due to the clean exhaust of the fuel, the ethanol fireplace itself requires no chimney, flue, or venting to the outside. On the other hand, a traditional wood burning fireplace, which does require a flue, looses as much as 80% of its heat up the chimney – not so with an ethanol ventless fireplace.

ETHANOL FIRE FUEL SAFETY TIPS

As a reminder, here are a few ethanol fuel safety tips for you and your family:

  • Do NOT overfill the fuel storage tank. Fill the tank only to the level recommended by the manufacturer of your device (read instructions carefully)
  • Do NOT add fuel to a fireplace that is burning or already hot.
  • Do NOT allow children to operate the fireplace or refuel the device.
  • Ensure that all spills are immediately and thoroughly cleaned up. (Accidental spills on a non-porous or permeable surface will evaporate in time).
  • Use either a long match or long lighter to light fuel.

Following these instructions offered by the Nu-Flame® for their ethanol fireplace fuel, in conjunction with the safety instructions provided by the manufacturer of your burning device, helps ensure your ethanol fireplace burns as safely as possible.
