Choosing the Best Electric Fireplace
Are you considering an electric fireplace for your home? Watch this video for some tips on choosing the best fireplace.
Electric fireplaces create flame imitation by projecting LED lights onto a screen in a randomized pattern. Most electric fireplaces have a built-in heater that works independently from the flame so you can turn the heat off and enjoy the flames of electric fireplaces year-round. Electric fireplaces are generally more affordable than any other kind of fireplaces.
Electric fireplaces are great sources of supplemental heat. They are 99% efficient, meaning that there’s no loss of energy as all of it is converted into heat. Since electric fireplaces don’t create any real flames or smoke there is no need for venting. This reduces the cost of installation dramatically. When selecting your electric fireplace, consider how you’ll use the unit and the size of the space you’re heating. Forced fan fireplaces are best for areas around 400 square feet, while infrared quartz units are best suited for rooms around 1,000 square feet. These cost-effective heaters are also one of the most efficient ways to heat a room, which reduces energy costs.
