What's the deal with no soot?
We proudly advertise that Flikrfire will product little to no carbon monoxide or put some soot into your home. While this is true we want to clarify a few things, some fuels produce carbon monoxide as a bi-product of burning, isopropyl alcohol does not. However in the absence of enough oxygen ANY fuel (even a cigarette lighter) can begin to produce carbon monoxide and soot. This can occur for various reasons but most often in a tightly sealed space (which often contain an air exchanger). Knowing this we have always said that the FLIKRFIRE Personal Fireplace must only be burned in a well-ventilated room; by, “well-ventilated” we mean the active exchange of air (thereby oxygen).
The more FLIKRFIRE gets out into the world (yay!) the more we realize the need to further educate our buyers.
Variations in Your Environment
Unfortunately, given the possible variations in a home, there is no single standard or test by which we can guarantee plentiful oxygen. So as a refinement of our statement about being, “well- ventilated” we now say that a FLIKRFIRE Personal Fireplace should not be burned in a room smaller than 300 ft2. To especially ensure soot does not appear around your home no other flames should be lit and a window must be cracked in the room a FLIKRFIRE Personal Fireplace is burning.
If soot appears anywhere other than where flame touches
Stop using FLIKRFIRE Personal Fireplace indoors as this can signal a lack of oxygen in your environment.
