House and Home
Bringing you and your family warmth on a winter’s night, electric fireplaces are a flexible, safer and more economical way of enjoying a fire in your home. Electricity is one of the most efficient and environmentally friendly energy solutions today.
An electric fireplace is a heating element that looks like a traditional wood burning or gas fireplace, but it does not require a chimney or professional installation. It is an electric heater that mimics a fireplace burning coal, wood, or natural gas. It is a convenient way to bring heat into your home without a mess, fumes or dangerous gas.
They can also be placed in conventional fireplaces that are no longer used for fires. The easiest part-they plug into the wall and are usually portable! You can use them to provide heat or you have the option to turn it to a flame-only setting, so you can enjoy it all year round. Another bonus is they do not require any maintenance like other fireplaces do.
Electric fireplaces are also very inexpensive to operate. They emit zero pollutants, are energy efficient and are safe for children.
Another great feature to the electric fireplace is what they can add to your home decor. There are so many options to choose from and incorporate a decorative wall feature into your space. Modern fireplace designs are ergonomic and elegant. Trendy options like glass doors or even wall hanging electric fireplaces are beautiful ways to bring modern design into your home.
