Bioethanol Fireplace Ratings

With our bioethanol fireplace ratings, you can compare units side by side using our Head To Head tool.

You can compare over 50 models from twelve manufacturers in ten categories such as warranty, mounting options, control types, & where they are made.

You can also read the individual reviews of each brand below.

Our simple rating system gives each brand a color code and a star rating. If the card is green, then, that is one of the top picks from HvacRepairGuy. If the card is yellow, then, that would be a budget pick from HvacRepairgGuy. If the card is red, then, the brand is not recommended by HvacRepairGuy. It truly is like you were taking a repairman shopping with you!
