What is your experience and/or thoughts on the EcoSmart fireboxes/fireplaces that are burning denatured ethanol? Are they any better or worse than the dreaded ventless gas fireplaces in a tight home?
I've read that, "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 have asked several energy and combustion safety experts. So far, I've only gotten speculation, and, "I've never heard of such a thing."
Here is the website for EcoSmart. Does anyone have any feedback about actual testing. What are your thoughts? http://www.ecosmartfire.com/en/home
Thank you, in advance, for your thoughts.
