    What sort of chimney do you have ?
    Where in the country are you ?
    Do you have special circumstances (bends - short pots not reaching the ridge height - down draughts from trees, hills, neighbouring higher buildings etc.) ?

    Have you inspected your chimney breast as far as you can - I found a hole in mine stuffed with wall paper!

    Your price sound expensive even for a stainless steel liner.
    [What do I know, I live in a bungalow.]

    There is another technique involving a big blow up "sausage dog" balloon for chimneys of dubious quality.

    heat output bio ethanol fires
    Heat output is dependant on the size of the firebox burner with bio ethanol fireplace. The larger the flame the more heat output.

    I have seen the site firebox uk have some large built in fires which can reach up to 10kw in heat output.

    Incidentally, since I just saw this reawakened, we got the bioethanol fire and it's superb. We went for a magiflame branded one and I cant fault it... gives out lots of heat, warms the room, and looks great.

    sorry to bring up an old thread but if anyone has purchased these fires would anyone know the best places to get bioethanol from or is there a cheaper alternative available?
