Traditional fireplaces present a variety of hassles for homeowners, such as fire maintenance, soot cleanup, and smoky smells. But modern electric fireplaces provide all the warmth and ambiance of a normal hearth appliance with none of the difficulties. In addition to their ease of use, these models make a great focal point for any room where you and your loved ones gather. Enjoying colorful flames and cozy warmth has never been so simple!
Benefits of Electric Fireplace Heaters
Comfortable Heating Options- Most electric fireplaces contain two elements: a display that creates vibrant flames, and a heater for generating warmth. Flame presentations are produced using different methods like video displays, refracted light, or — for the Dimplex Opti-Myst Series — an image projected onto a mist of water droplets. Warmth is generally determined by the fireplace’s voltage. High-heat models may have to be hardwired into a dedicated circuit by an electrician. Units that plug directly into a wall outlet, meanwhile, usually give off less heat than their hardwired counterparts. One of the best things about modern electric fireplaces is that the display and heater can often operate independently, allowing you to run one or both elements depending on your needs.
Less Hassle- Because electric fireplaces don’t use actual fires, they’re much safer than most wood and gas hearth appliances. You can also forget about removing soot and ash, cleaning a chimney, or hiring a plumber to install gas lines. The only fuel used by these models is electricity, and their high efficiency results in much less cost over time than other fireplace options (both in maintenance and input costs).
Versatile Mounting Options- Modern electric fireplaces can be mounted almost anywhere! Most brands offer models that can be wall-mounted, freestanding, inserted into a mantel or entertainment center, or recessed into the wall for a seamless look. You can mount most electric fireplace heaters directly beneath your television or other wall-mounted pieces as long as you maintain proper clearances from the top and bottom of the unit.
