Does e-NRG bioethanol smell?

Bioethanol has substances added to it in order for it to be labelled ‘de-natured’. The burning of these substances may cause a slight smell upon initial lighting and will dissipate with time. There is also a slight odour once the flame is extinguished – similar to when you blow out a candle. This also dissipates into the air.

Are EcoSmart Fires easy to install?

EcoSmart Fires are designed to be easily installed and operated. Without the need for a flue or pipe connection, EcoSmart Fires are extremely flexible and can be incorporated at any stage of your interior decorating, renovating or building works. For detailed specifications please contact your local distributor.

Do you offer on site consultations or design services?

While we do not offer on-site consultations, we are available to speak with you over the phone and review any plans or photos submitted to us by email.

Do you offer custom designs or colours?

Not at this time. The extensive Brown Jordan Fires collection is available in the standard colours shown on the model specifications page.

My ground surface is uneven, will my fireplace be stable?

Brown Jordan Fires feature height adjustable articulating feet, which ensures your fireplace or accessory is stable and balanced.

How do I convert the gas burner from LP to NG?

Each burner ships as LP, but the component required to convert to NG is included with each burner. See the Installation instructions supplied with the burner for complete details on converting to NG.

Can I change from ethanol to NG/LP or vice versa?

While this is not something you would want to do with any frequency, yes the burner can be changed if you decide you would like to change from NG/LP to ethanol or from ethanol to NG/LP.

Do you offer installation services?

All EcoSmart Fires Fireplace Inserts are designed to be easily installed and come with a simple set of instructions. The Freestanding and Outdoor ranges are easy enough to set up on your own. A builder, contractor, or cabinetmaker of your choosing will be able to complete your firebox insert project with straightforward framing. Our Fireplace Grates range provides the simplest conversion solution and can be installed as long as utilities have been shut off and the fireplace meets our clearance requirements. Installation is little more than placing the grate in your fireplace and closing the flue. Once that is done, you are ready to light your EcoSmart fire.

How long does it take to assemble?

There is virtually no assembly. Our Freestanding and Fireplace Grates ranges are designed to be placed into the desired location, secured into position, and operated immediately. Our Fireplace Inserts are designed to slot into place, secured and built around with your preferred finish – again a quick and easy installation – so your builder or interior designer will love you!

The longest part of the setup process is trying to figure out where you want to place it – be sure it complies with our clearance requirements particularly with regard to moving objects like curtains, tree branches and so forth.

Can EcoSmart Fires be installed everywhere?

Almost everywhere! EcoSmart Fires cannot be installed into small rooms that are less than our minimum room size which is burner specific. For all other installations, you must comply with our compulsory clearances and installation instructions. Approval from building authorities may be required prior to installation in your area. Please make sure you contact appropriate parties before installing your EcoSmart Fire.

WARNING!

Brown Jordan Fires with Gas (NG/LP) Burner Systems should NEVER be used indoors or in an enclosed space.

Does my Brown Jordan Fire require any assembly?

Most Brown Jordan Fires require only minor assembly. More often than not, your fire can be ready to operate in less than 30 minutes by following the included assembly and operations manual. If choosing Natural Gas, a licensed plumber will be required to complete the installation to the permanent gas line.

How to install a TV or AV equipment above an ethanol fireplace?

This design can be achieved as long as the TV is protected. You have 3 possible solutions:

Solution 1: The TV needs a non-combustible mantel/ledge to act as a heat shield

Solution 2: The TV needs to be recessed in a niche

Solution 3: The TV needs to sit back off the level of the flame

How to position your TV
Can I extinguish the fireplace before the fuel has burnt?

Yes, you can turn your EcoSmart Fire burner off at any given time, even if there is ethanol still left in the burner. It is recommended however, that you leave it to burn until it completely runs out. The shut off mechanism is there for security and safety for those times when you need to leave the house, as it is not safe to leave a fire unattended. Please wait 60 minutes before relighting the ethanol after extinguishing it to let the ethanol cool. Built up vapours may cause a strong, initial ignition if the ethanol has not cooled long enough.

For all other brands refer to the manufacturer's instructions.

Do Brown Jordan Fires emit heat?

Though our fires are designed primarily for ambience, many models will also provide warmth. Output varies by model. Please consult with one of our technical advisers to match the correct product for your leisure and entertaining needs.

Can I add decorative stones, glass, logs etc. over my Brown Jordan Fires?

Yes! Many of our models are designed specifically for holding decorative stones, glass beads etc. of your choosing. However, it is important that the decorative material be placed around the burner and not directly over the opening. This is because the burner door needs to be accessible for lighting, extinguishing, and refilling. Ceramic logs can also be used as long as the burner door and opening are not obstructed or prevented from performing properly.

My lighter does not work. How can I get it working?

Due to shipping restrictions, we have to ship our lighters without butane. Pressurized cans of butane can be found at major home improvement stores nationwide. Lighters have a small hole or port at the bottom of them. Place the butane can’s refilling straw into this hole and press down into the lighter. This will release the butane. Fill until lighter becomes cold to the touch.

I spilled some e-NRG. What is the safest way to clean it up?

Bioethanol can be wiped up with either a paper or cloth towel. Paper towels can be disposed of in regular trash bins. Though not toxic, it is recommended that you wash hands immediately after coming into contact with e-NRG.

Which EcoSmart Fire is right for me?

Ethanol Burners - Our Ethanol Burners are at the heart of every EcoSmart Fire. They are both the containers of the clean-burning bioethanol and the source of the flame. Completely self-contained, the burners have no need for exterior tanks or utility lines and their stainless steel bodies make them suitable for both interior and exterior use. The XL burners offer a linear flame while the BK5 burner has a substantial and adjustable flame housed in a compact body. EcoSmart’s AB Series offers a round burner ideal for fire pits or other circular fireplace designs.

Fireplace Inserts - Fireplace Inserts are stainless steel enclosures that house EcoSmart’s burners. They can be installed into walls or cabinets and, just like the burners, are suitable for indoor and outdoor use. All of our fireboxes are zero clearance, meaning that the dimensions of the firebox are the exact dimensions of the opening you’ll need in your wall. The fireboxes, like all our products, are vent free and its zero clearance dimensions mean installation is hassle free.

Freestanding Fireplaces - Created as standalone units, the models in our Design Fireplaces range require little set up and no installation. These units are completely self-contained and offer the same clean burning flame as our fireplace inserts without any of the installation requirements. Used as a room centrepiece or even as a space divider, Design Fireplaces offer the luxury of fire without any of the restrictions. You can even move the units from room to room as your fire needs change.

Outdoor Fireplaces - Whether used on a table top or as glowing ambience set along a pathway, EcoSmart’s Outdoor Fireplaces offer a wide range of stylish fire feature options. Made of steel and glass, the outdoor units are designed and built to withstand the outdoors. Though styled for outdoor use, they are just as attractive when used in an interior setting, enabling them to be relocated when the weather permits. Every season is a good season to enjoy EcoSmart Fire.

All our products are highly versatile and designed to be used in any number of ways with a myriad of materials. There are, of course, safety considerations when working with fire and we do have minimum clearance and room size requirements, as well as material requirements, which can be found within each product's Technical Specifications. Still not sure which EcoSmart Fire is right for you? Give us a call and one of our product specialists will be happy to help.

Can I use the Outdoor Collection indoors?

Yes. EcoSmart’s Outdoor Fireplaces use the same clean burning fuel and high quality burners as its indoor products. Conversely, our entire built-in fireplace inserts and ethanol burners can be installed in custom outdoor settings.

Will my EcoSmart Fire heat the room?

All EcoSmart Fires are ventless, meaning all the heat stays in the room rather than escaping up a flue. Increased heat retention means increased fuel efficiency and a better chance of staying warm. While providing warmth, EcoSmart Fires are not designed to be used as a room’s primary heat source. Please see the burner section in our manual for full details.

WARNING!

Brown Jordan Fires with Gas (NG/LP) Burner Systems should NEVER be used indoors or in an enclosed space.

How do I light a Brown Jordan Fire?

The instruction manual that accompanies your purchase includes a step by step lighting procedure to make sure you’re able to light your Brown Jordan Fire safely and correctly.

Do Brown Jordan Fires give off heat?

They most certainly do. Our fire pits, low tables and tall tables provide warmth and ambience of up to 55,000 BTUs / hour when operating on NG or LP. For a more decorative outdoor fire, Lumen is a great option.

Do I need to service my product in any way?

Yes, normal maintenance and care is very important! Instructions are included in the Installation, Operating and Maintenance Manual supplied with your product.

Are Brown Jordan Fires weather-resistant?

All products are made to withstand the elements. For added protection, outdoor covers are available to keep your Brown Jordan Fire in tip top shape for years to come.

Do you offer on site consultations or design services?

While we do not offer on-site consultations, we are available to speak with you over the phone and review any plans or photos submitted to us by email.

Are glass screens available?

Many Brown Jordan Fires have glass screens available as optional accessories. Please check the model specifications for your desired fire to see if a glass screen is available as an optional accessory.

How do I maintain my Brown Jordan Fires?

Concrete is a porous material and while the surface is sealed at point of manufacture, the sealer may break down over time due to environmental factors like UV rays and general use. We recommend that you seal the concrete surfaces on an annual basis using a suitable sealer which will help in renewing the protective sealer layer on your product. Your distributor will know of the best brand to use in your local market. Use the protective cover when not in use.

How do I clean my Brown Jordan Fires?

Brown Jordan Fires are made from durable Concrete Composite and Stainless Steel and can be cleaned using mild soap and warm water with a soft cloth. Avoid using harsh abrasives or scrubbing tools as they can scratch the products’ surface. Just wipe to get your Brown Jordan Fire looking like new. Outdoor covers are also available to help you save on elbow grease and keep your fire looking its best.

How do I clean my EcoSmart Fire burner?

Cleaning of the burner should be done only after you have used 50 litres of fuel or as soon as you notice a black residue forming around or on the burner. Before starting, make sure the burner is off, empty of ethanol, and at room temperature. Spray a multi-purpose cleaner on the surface of the burner and wipe with cloth, making sure to wipe in the direction of the grain. If material has fallen into the burner use a vacuum cleaner to remove debris through the burner opening. If your burner smells unusually strong after extensive use, remove the empty and room temperature burner from its surround and wash in hot, soapy water. Rinse thoroughly under running water and wait until burner is completely dry before placing back into its surround and reusing.

Note: Stainless steel will rust or corrode over time if contamination or debris is not cleaned or removed immediately. When not in use, we recommend that you protect your fireplace from water damage or corrosion with a protective cover and the regular use the burner lid included with your model.

Avoiding Stains

In the event that the coating is knowingly cut, scraped, or damaged, a new layer of sealer should be applied. Spills should be wiped up as soon as possible. While the sealer performs well against stains from oils and acidic materials, prolonged exposure may cause a breakdown of the sealer and possible discoloration.

Do not place hot objects on the surface as they may cause discoloration. Using a trivet is recommended. Refrain from applying blue painter’s tape or other adhesives directly to the product. Although not considered a defect, non-structural hairline cracks are possible and may result from shrinkage and the natural curing process. If hairline cracks do appear, immediately apply a sealer to prevent moisture from seeping into the cracks and causing discoloration. Re-seal the surrounding surfaces periodically.

Removing Stains

Even with an adequate sealer, liquids like red wine, oil, and other acid products could still break down the sealer and be absorbed into the material - particularly if not well maintained. To remove, use a fine grit sand paper to remove the stains from the surface (remembering to test a small patch in a discreet area first to ensure it doesn’t damage the surface) then re-apply the sealer.

General Maintenance

Concrete is a porous material and while the surface is sealed at point of manufacture, the sealer may break down over time due to environmental factors like UV rays and general use. We recommend that you seal the concrete surfaces on an annual basis using a suitable sealer to help renew the protective sealer layer on your product. Your distributor will know of the best brand to use in your local market. Use the protective cover when not in use.

Can other ethanol brands be used in place of e-NRG?

e-NRG is the only recommended fuel for use in EcoSmart Fires and use of other fuel brands will void the warranty. We have not worked with or tested other ethanol brands in conjunction with our burners and cannot speak to their performance or safety. Other brands can also leave residue or unsightly staining, and no one wants a dirty burner.

Is e-NRG safe to be stored inside?

Ethanol is a stable liquid that is safe to store indoors as long as it is kept away from an open flame. It is also safe to be kept in garages, utility rooms or other outdoor storage areas without any risk. In accordance with various global regulations, ethanol (100% alcohol) cannot be sold in its purest form to avoid human consumption. A bittering agent is added to the formula to prevent ingestion.

Is e-NRG safe to store in my home or workspace?

Yes. e-NRG is a stable fuel source and will not pose any safety threat as long as it is stored away from an open flame.

Can I roast marshmallows or perform other cooking procedures over the fire?

e-NRG has been formulated and tested for burning purposes only. EcoSmart does not condone e-NRG to be used for any purpose other than for recommended use within our burners.

Is it required that I use a jerry can to operate e-NRG or can I pour e-NRG directly into the burner?

Yes, we provide jerry cans, lighting rods and lighters with every burner because we want you to have the highest quality and safest experience possible when using our products. The jerry can ensures that you don’t splash ethanol when pouring or overfill the burner.

If you add the adaptor to the e-NRG bottle the Safety Spout can be connected to the bottle - only then can you use the e-NRG bottle to fill the burner. Filling from the bottle without an attached safety spout can result in serious injury.

Can other ethanol brands be used in place of e-NRG?

e-NRG is the only recommended fuel for use in EcoSmart Fires and use of other fuel brands will void the warranty. We have not worked with or tested other ethanol brands in conjunction with our burners and cannot speak to their performance or safety. Other brands can also leave residue or unsightly staining, and no one wants a dirty burner.

WARNING!

Brown Jordan Fires with Gas (NG/LP) Burner Systems should NEVER be used indoors or in an enclosed space.

Is e-NRG bioethanol the same as gel fuel? Can I use gel fuel in my fire?

e-NRG is a liquid fuel and is NOT the same as gel fuels. Gel fuels have added thickening agents that can reduce the heat output and fuel efficiency. It can also leave sticky residue in the burner, which will eventually affect safe operation. Gel fuels are used only on burners specifically designed to use them. EcoSmart Fires are designed and manufactured to burn only e-NRG liquid ethanol. Other fuels, especially gels, are not recommended. In fact, the use of brands other than e-NRG voids the burner’s warranty.

Does e-NRG bioethanol smell?

Bioethanol has substances added to it in order for it to be labelled ‘de-natured’. The burning of these substances may cause a slight smell upon initial lighting and will dissipate with time. There is also a slight odour once the flame is extinguished – similar to when you blow out a candle. This also dissipates into the air.

Does e-NRG bio ethanol burn yellow or blue?

e-NRG Bioethanol is formulated to consistently burn its signature bright orange colour so you get maximum enjoyment out of your ethanol burning fireplace.

Is this the same ethanol I can buy at gas stations?

No. The ethanol sold at gas stations is in no way similar to e-NRG.

What is the shelf life of e-NRG Fuel?

The shelf life is 3 years if kept in a tightly sealed container and in a cool, dry area (approx 20°C).

What does warranty actually cover?

We offer a full two year warranty from date of purchase on stainless steel parts including raw, linished and powder coated. Mild steel including powder coated and chrome plated, concrete composite, glass, leather, fabric and MDF (painted or cement rendered) are covered for one year from the date of purchase.

Chips and scratches are not covered by warranty. Natural variation in color, texture and porosity may occur with Concrete Composite products and are considered inherent and valued qualities of the material. Non-structural hairline cracks are possible and shall not be considered a manufacturing defect.

If I purchased from a retailer, can I contact EcoSmart Inc directly for warranty?

It is best to contact the retailer where you made your purchase. The retailer will help you resolve the issue or submit the warranty claim on your behalf.

What if I have modified the product?

If the product has been modified or altered in any way, it will not be covered under warranty unless the modifications were approved in writing by EcoSmart Inc or The Fire Company Pty Ltd. However, we are happy to provide assistance with any issues you are experiencing.

Can I return my product without the original box and accessories?

In order to be fully covered under warranty, the product must be returned in its original packaging with accessories. If any items are missing, or if replacement packaging must be provided, the associated costs will be deducted from the credit or refund.
