Alcohol Gel Fuel

Gel Fuel for Fireplaces. Designed with Care

Gel Fuel: The heart of a HearthCabinet alcohol burning fireplace is our unique single-use, pre-filled, alcohol gel fuel cartridge.

About Gel Fuel Cartridges

  • Our patented eco-friendly alcohol gel fuel cartridge ensures safe use and a brilliant real, roaring and crackling flame.
  • There is no smoke, embers, ash, or debris. No connections of any kind needed unlike a wood or gas fireplace. Plus they’re easy to use- clean and no venting so you can say goodbye to your chimney.
  • The fuel is a clean-burning mixture of isopropyl alcohol and water, with a little thickening agent, and is similar to hospital grade hand sanitizers or chafing fuels.
  • We use isopropyl alcohol instead of ethanol alcohol for the better flame it produces for us. And because we use single-use cartridges, you never have to worry about touching, pouring or mixing fuel. 
  • Empty aluminum fuel cartridges can be tossed in the recycling bin after they’ve cooled.
  • As lively as a wood fire in appearance, like a log, each cartridge lasts approximately 2 to 2 1/2 hours.
  • Fuel cartridges are always safely nestled in a cartridge holder behind a locked safety screen. Lit with a long fireplace match or a butane lighter, the cartridges can be extinguished at any time with supplied snuffer plates, or left to go out on their own. 
  • While ventless fireplaces are not meant to heat your house, HearthCabinet Ventless Fireplaces do give off a comfortable atmosphere of heat to be enjoyed by the fireplace.
  • Each gel fuel cartridge provides 5,000 BTU’s of heat for a maximum of 10,000 BTU’s when using two cartridges at once, side-by-side for a wider and taller flame. And since no chimney or venting is required, all of the heat remains in the room.
  • Cartridges come in cases of eight, are purchased online, and shipped to your door.
