Bio-ethanol fireplaces and security: how do you prevent fire hazards?
Bioethanol fireplaces are a great way to add atmosphere and warmth to your home. However, as with any fire, it is important to take safety measures to avoid fire hazards. In this article we discuss how you can use your bio-ethanol fireplace safely and what measures you can take to improve safety.
Choose a safe location for your fireplace
When choosing a location for your bio-ethanol fireplace, it is important to take safety into account. Place the fireplace on a flat and stable surface, and make sure there is enough space around the fireplace to improve air circulation. Make sure that there are no flammable materials near the fireplace.
Use the correct fuel
Always use the correct fuel for your fireplace. Never use gasoline, diesel or other fuels that are not specifically designed for bioethanol fireplaces. Also make sure you don't exceed the recommended amount of fuel. It is important to follow the manufacturer's instructions.
Supervise the fireplace during use
It is important to always keep an eye on the fireplace while it is burning. Never leave the fireplace unattended and ensure that children and pets stay away from the fireplace. Make sure there is a fire blanket or fire extinguisher nearby in case something goes wrong.
Ventilate the room
Bioethanol fireplaces emit smoke and carbon dioxide, which can lead to air pollution and even carbon monoxide poisoning. Make sure the room is well ventilated when using the fireplace. This can be done, for example, by opening a window or door.
Maintain and inspect regularly
Make sure you regularly inspect and maintain the fireplace. Check that there are no cracks in the glass or the burner and that there are no blockages in the burner. Also clean the fireplace regularly to prevent flammable material from accumulating.
