8 Benefits of Electric Fireplaces

Electric fireplaces have all the warmth and beauty we desire without many of the challenges of wood-burning fireplaces. The advantages of electric fireplaces include:

  1. Design: What’s your style? You can have a white, minimalist electric fireplace. You can have an enormous, ornate, Victorian-style electric fireplace. There are plenty of style choices.
  2. Durable: Electric fireplaces look and perform exceptionally well after many years of use.
  3. Functional: You can use your electric fireplace year-round, and why wouldn’t you? Electric fireplaces are an affordable feel-good appliance.
  4. Installation: Some electric fireplaces are this simple: Plug it in, turn it on. If rewiring or electrical retrofitting is needed, they require professional installation.
  5. Low maintenance: You have to clean a wood fireplace to minimize the soot (and the smell), and you also must have professional fireplace maintenance and cleaning done regularly. Electric fireplaces don’t require any of that.
  6. Lower cost: A fireplace is a good investment. Electric fireplaces are cheaper and easier to install. No professional cleaning is required, and there are no firewood expenses. Today’s electric fireplaces offer real energy savings.
  7. No fumes: There are no fire flames or gas being pumped into the system. No smoke is generated. There’s no risk of harmful emissions, like carbon monoxide.
  8. Safety: Even though they can warm your toes and heat a room, electric fireplaces are safe. They remain cool to the touch, a valuable safety feature when you have toddlers and pets.

What You Need To Know About Electric Fireplaces

Home renovations often include replacing older, wood-burning fireplaces with electric. In addition to the safety and maintenance features, electric fireplaces are more cost-effective and don’t need to be vented. There’s no cleaning required after use.

Most electric fireplaces have:

  • Flame effect/dimmer dial
  • High/low heat setting
  • On/off switch

Electric fireplaces need to be dusted when needed to keep the exterior looking good. The inlet/outlet should be free from dust, debris or anything that might block it.
