What is the Cost of Bioethanol Fuel?
A popular question among people seeking to purchase a bioethanol fireplace for their clients is: “How much does bioethanol cost?” There are several factors that can influence the price of bioethanol, so it’s crucial that you keep these in mind when considering your options.
It’s also noteworthy to mention that there are other costs associated with bioethanol fuel, such as producing and distributing it, for example.
So, in this article, we’re looking into how much bioethanol can cost when it comes to these several different elements.
Lower Environmental Cost
Bioethanol fires don’t release copious amounts of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. On the contrary, a bioethanol fireplace mainly emits heat, water, and a negligible amount of CO2. This means they are eco-friendly and perfectly safe to have indoors!
No Cost to Health
With bioethanol fuel, there is no cost to you or your clients’ health as the fuel only emits a small amount of CO2. They don’t emit substances that can be carcinogenic (such as PM2.5, which is linked to several health issues, such as asthma and heart attacks) or other particulates that may be equally harmful.
The Cost of Manufacturing Bioethanol Fuel
Bioethanol is made from the fermentation process of carbohydrates produced by plants like corn, sugarcane, and sweet sorghum. These plants are grown at a low cost and are low maintenance, which means producing bioethanol can be incredibly cost-effective.
No Cost Associated with Chimneys
Bioethanol fires do not require a chimney, which can save the customer money both in the short and in the long run. After all, just the costs of lining a chimney, as well as servicing it, could be significant. Bioethanol has no maintenance costs associated with it, so people can have the peace of mind of knowing that there’s no extra work or budget required to maintain their fire.
The Quality of the Fuel
At Smart Fire, we believe in only providing the best fuel solutions for your client’s fires, which means our bioethanol fires are of the highest quality. These high standards allow us to say, with confidence, that your client will get more for their money.
While a lower quality fuel may be cheaper, they often have a faster rate of combustion, which means they could be less cost-effective in the long run. The cost of bioethanol, then, will also depend on its quality.
Time (and Space) Costs Associated with Fuel
Bioethanol fireplaces are hassle-free and incredibly convenient; you just have to add the bioethanol fuel to your fire and enjoy the heat and aesthetics. What’s more, bioethanol fires can be moved from place to place, according to your space needs and preferences. If you are mounting the bioethanol fire onto a wall, the space needed above the fire can be up to 60cm should there be no top section. A free standing bioethanol fire can be placed in any space as it doesn’t need a flue or chimney. There are many ways how you can save space with a bioethanol fire.
Buying in Bulk to Reduce Bioethanol Costs
So, how much does bioethanol fuel cost? At Smart Fire, you have several options that allow you to choose the one that’s best for you or your client. This is because we understand that each client will have different requirements, so our bioethanol solutions range from deliveries of 20 litres to deliveries of 200 litres.
40 litres of bioethanol will cost you £94.89 but, if you opt for an extra 100 litres and go for 140L, you can save over £20. As you can see, a factor that can greatly reduce costs is to buy bioethanol fuel in bulk.
While you or your client may spend more up front, you are likely to get a discount that makes your fuel more cost-effective in the long run. Because it can be more convenient to purchase large quantities of bioethanol fuel to avoid having to replenish on a regular basis, we offer bulk discounts for clients wishing to do just this.
The cost of running a bioethanol fire will also depend on several elements, including the aperture of your fire slider (as found in the BK5 model), the size of the flame, and how long the fire is burning.
