What maintenance is required for ethanol fireplaces?
Clean your EcoSmart Fire unit after you have used 50 liters [13.20 Gal.] of fuel or as soon as you notice black deposits on or near the burner of the ethanol fireplace. Black marks can be removed from the stone, solid surfaces or stainless steel with a mild abrasive washing product such as JIF or similar. It is recommended to test a small area first to ensure the cleaning product chosen is appropriate and will not mark or damage the surface. Burners can be washed as required in hot soapy water (even in your dishwasher) from time to time and the internal mechanics won’t deteriorate like some other brands as all internal parts are stainless steel.

Why use an electric fireplace?
There are many reasons to choose an electric fireplace insert over other heating options such as wood-burning and gas fireplaces.
Cost: Electric wall fireplaces are the most cost-effective fire solution available, operating at just pennies a day. Additionally, using an electric fireplace for zone heating can reduce your utility bill by 20-40%.
Realism: Low energy LED flame technology produces a warm glow and vibrant flickering flame for the most realistic electric fireplace. Featuring accent elements like logs, coals or glacier glass media, and an industry-leading ember bed with a pulsing burner effect, EcoSmart Fire’s modern electric fireplaces are nearly indistinguishable from a real fire. Best of all, you can enjoy the ambiance of a warm glowing fire with or without heat year-round.
Safety: With a low energy LED powered flame and a cool to the touch safety screen, electric wall fireplaces are the safest fire solution available making them ideal for busy commercial spaces or homes with children and pets.

Which heater model is the best for me?
This depends on the installation environment. If you own an open terrace, where sometimes the wind is blowing, we highly recommend only the SPOT power heaters.
But if you want to heat your glass house, conservatory or loggia, we entrust the ambient heaters VISION to you. These perfectly match well covered areas.
A rule of thumb is: The more open the area the more open the heater has to be – even if the other model looks nicer and is pleasing you more.
Why are there design heaters with and without a glass front?
At HEATSCOPE® you can choose between different model ranges. The main difference – along with the length and output – is the design of the front side.
The VISION ambient heater has been equipped with a SCHOTT® NEXTREMA® glass ceramic front, whereas the SPOT power heater has an open fin front screen.
The NEXTREMA® glass reduces the already low light output (only 30% when compared with conventional heaters) by half again to reach a barely perceptible minimum of just 15%. However the glass front also makes the ambient heater more vulnerable to wind.
For this reason, the VISION models should only be used in areas protected from wind.
Will my EcoSmart Fire heat the room?
All EcoSmart Fires are ventless, meaning all the heat stays in the room rather than escaping up a flue. Increased heat retention means increased fuel efficiency and a better chance of staying warm. While providing warmth, EcoSmart Fires are not designed to be used as a room’s primary heat source. Please see the burner section in our manual for full details.
Which EcoSmart Fire is right for me?
Ethanol Burners - Our Ethanol Burners are at the heart of every EcoSmart Fire. They are both the containers of the clean-burning bioethanol and the source of the flame. Completely self-contained, the burners have no need for exterior tanks or utility lines and their stainless steel bodies make them suitable for both interior and exterior use. The XL burners offer a linear flame while the BK5 burner has a substantial and adjustable flame housed in a compact body. EcoSmart’s AB Series offers a round burner ideal for fire pits or other circular fireplace designs.
Fireplace Inserts - Fireplace Inserts are stainless steel enclosures that house EcoSmart’s burners. They can be installed into walls or cabinets and, just like the burners, are suitable for indoor and outdoor use. All of our fireboxes are zero clearance, meaning that the dimensions of the firebox are the exact dimensions of the opening you’ll need in your wall. The fireboxes, like all our products, are vent free and its zero clearance dimensions mean installation is hassle free.
Freestanding Fireplaces - Created as standalone units, the models in our Design Fireplaces range require little set up and no installation. These units are completely self-contained and offer the same clean burning flame as our fireplace inserts without any of the installation requirements. Used as a room centrepiece or even as a space divider, Design Fireplaces offer the luxury of fire without any of the restrictions. You can even move the units from room to room as your fire needs change.
Outdoor Fireplaces - Whether used on a table top or as glowing ambience set along a pathway, EcoSmart’s Outdoor Fireplaces offer a wide range of stylish fire feature options. Made of steel and glass, the outdoor units are designed and built to withstand the outdoors. Though styled for outdoor use, they are just as attractive when used in an interior setting, enabling them to be relocated when the weather permits. Every season is a good season to enjoy EcoSmart Fire.
All our products are highly versatile and designed to be used in any number of ways with a myriad of materials. There are, of course, safety considerations when working with fire and we do have minimum clearance and room size requirements, as well as material requirements, which can be found within each product's Technical Specifications. Still not sure which EcoSmart Fire is right for you? Give us a call and one of our product specialists will be happy to help.
