Five Advantages of Purchasing An Electric Fireplace:
1. A stunning look and attractive ambiance
Electric fireplaces are designed to look like traditional wood burning units. Some models fit into existing hearths, and others are stand-alone units complete with mantle and screen. The internal units are crafted to mimic flickering flames, providing a romantic ambiance to any room.
2. Easy installation and convenient portability
Electric fireplaces are simple to install. Whether purchasing an insert to fill an existing hearth or a stand-alone unit, installation is as simple as plugging in the unit and following the manufacturers instructions. When moving, it's easy to take with you, as there are no complicated attachments or hook-ups.
3. Remote controlled warmth without the hassle of building a fire
Some units feature a remote control that will give you the ability to modify flame intensity, flicker speed, heat output, and power. Built-in heaters of electric fireplaces work as simply as conventional space heaters, but are much safer. Warm your room without having to purchase or store firewood, worry about soot or cleaning, or creosote buildup.
4. Stand-alone units are great for smaller homes, condos, or apartments
Easy to install and come complete with beautiful mantles, these attractive units make great additions to smaller homes. Once installed, they have a built-in look and can be adorned with decorative items. Corner units make excellent use of wasted space in smaller apartments, and provide all the advantages that electric fireplaces offer.
5. Pollution-free with no toxic fumes
Since there is no real flame or burning, electric fireplaces present no toxic fumes or smell. There is no smoke or pollution, creosote, or airborne embers.
