Here’s a quirky design guaranteed to warm up those chilly winter nights. The EcoSmart Fireplace is a flue-less, transportable, open fireplace which is ideal for apartment and city living. Designed to provide the coziness of a traditional fireplace without the negative environmental impact, the EcoSmart fireplace burns denatured ethanol (a renewable energy source).
In case you were worried about emissions (I was a little skeptical at first) – apparently the combustion of denatured ethanol releases water steam and carbon dioxide. The ratio of CO / CO2 passes standards for flueless gas fireplaces and the amount of Carbon Monoxide is negligible. I wonder what it smells like though? Has anyone tried this? This sounds pretty cool, but I’d love to get reader feedback from anyone who has actually tested this baby out.
