HOW TO INSTALL LE FEU FIREPLACES ?

LE FEU fireplaces comply with European Standards and are very easy to install, ready for use. Each model comes complete with installation and set up guides. The LE FEU Fireplaces require no flue or chimney. LE FEU SKY model is a ceiling hanging fireplace and a comprehensive guide is provided including fixing recommendations for each fireplace.

ARE THERE ANY HARMFUL EMISSIONS? The amount of CO2 produced by the fireplace is small and comparable to the level emitted by a candle. Bio ethanol fuels produce clean, smokeless warmth without the harmful emissions produced from conventional fossil fuel fires and wood burners. We recommend that if the fireplace is used in small rooms and the burner is set to maximum adjustment, the door(s) or a window should be opened to allow for air circulation and guard against indoor air pollution. Do not use an unvented appliance in room(s) used for sleeping, a shower room or a bathroom.

DO BIO-ETHANOL FIRES PROVIDE HEAT? 

Fireplaces are engineered and designed to allow the specially created dome to deliver beautiful ambient heat. The fireplaces produce approximately 2.0 to 3.0kw of heat which is equivalent to a small gas or electric heater. 2.0 to 2.5kw output of heat approximately heats a 20 square metre room.

FOR HOW LONG DOES THE BIO ETHANOL FIREPLACE BURN?

The duration is dependent on the burner setting used and conditions of the climate. In areas with a high air current, the duration may be be reduced. It is estimated 1.5 litre of fuel may last for up to 5 to 6 hours subject to conditions.

ARE THERE ANY HARMFUL EMISSIONS?

The amount of CO2 produced by the fireplace is small and comparable to the level emitted by a candle. Bio ethanol fuels produce clean, smokeless warmth without the harmful emissions produced from conventional fossil fuel fires and wood burners. We recommend if the fireplace is used in small rooms and the burner is set to maximum adjustment, that the door(s) or a window should be opened to allow for air circulation and guard against indoor air pollution. Do not use an unvented appliance in a room(s) used for sleeping a shower room or bathroom.

WHAT TYPE OF FUEL IS REQUIRED FOR USE?

The fuel used in the fireplace is denatured ethanol also referred to as ethyl alcohol, bio ethanol or grain alcohol. This is sourced from natural products such as plants including corn, wheat, barley and sugarcane and is a safe natural fuel to use and is an eco-friendly fuel.

LE FEU fireplaces should use only liquid, pure denatured ethanol. This can be identified under under various trade names (bio-alcohol, bio ethanol stove fuel etc.) and is sold at building merchandise stores, and the Internet.  Read more about Bioethanol HERE
