A traditional wood-burning fireplace or wood stove loses up to 70% of its heat, depending on certain variables. This makes wood-burning fireplaces costly and inefficient. When purchasing an electric fireplace heater, you are reducing your long-term heating costs by heating your room quickly and efficiently. Supplemental heating is an option to heat an extra-large space, so you’ll know your room will always be warm and comfortable. Electric heaters require less fuel than gas fireplaces, so heating is far more affordable and stress-free! Not only do they reduce costs by requiring less fuel, but they also reduce costs by being low maintenance. You don’t have to buy a fireplace starter, firewood, fuel, cleaning supplies, or fire tools. You simply turn it on with the click of a button, and a powerful heater with realistic flames radiates warmth and creates the look of a stylish fireplace.
The ease of installation of an electric fireplace insert is one of its biggest pros, while the installation of a traditional fireplace is one of its biggest cons. Installing an electric fireplace insert means no chimney, gas lines, building permits, etc. It can be as easy as adding a freestanding media console or mounting your electric fireplace to the wall, as easily as you mount your TV! It can be installed anywhere, on any wall! There are no added chores with an electric fireplace insert, just convenience, and pure enjoyment!
