Why You Should Consider Getting an Electric Fireplace

Just because winter is over it does not mean that we will not experience a cold night. People are once more looking at the different options to keep their homes toasty during the colder nights. It’s easy to understand that many become confused with all the options available. Most then opt for either a wood or gas fireplace, both being something everyone knows and understands. The electric fireplace is always looked over because not many people really talk about it. Yet it’s the perfect heater because you can move it around your home. It doesn’t have to be installed into or against a wall.

Here is why you should consider getting an electric fireplace:

1. Less Maintenance

No cleaning up ash or soot. All you have to do is press a button on your remote control to switch the fireplace on or off. The only maintenance needed is when you have to have your fireplace serviced once or twice a year.

2. The Environment

You aren’t using wood which means you aren’t adding to the deforestation issues of the world. Not to mention you won’t have to chop your wood before adding it to your fireplace.

3. Zero Smoke

Those with allergies can rest assured that there will be no smoke that will aggravate their conditions, this counts for asthma too. Your pets will also be a lot more comfortable with a layer of smoke hanging around your living room.

4. Saving Energy

An electric fireplace is a lot more energy efficient that other heaters out there. It doesn’t use a lot of energy and heats an area up a lot faster than other kinds of fireplaces.

 

5. Cheaper Alternative

Compared to other fireplaces, the electric fireplace is a lot cheaper to install or have delivered to your home. The only extra cost being that of having it serviced once or twice a year.
