A fireplace needs no introduction to people who have experienced cold weather. However, not everyone manages to go beyond the traditional, smoky wood burning fireplace. It would be a great contribution towards the worlds’ biggest problem of global warming to seek other options for a fireplace. Luckily, the electric fireplace was born eliminating all environmental hazards and providing the service of a traditional fireplace.
In order to spread warmth throughout a room, these electric fireplaces use a “fan forced heater”. Large metal coils are heated within the fireplace, using electricity. A fan is then used to direct heat from the coils outwards, thereby heating the room. These fan forced heaters are silent and very energetic and efficient, allowing the heat to spread over a large area. As soon as an electric fireplace is turned on, the heat is provided instantly with no delay for heating elements to warm up.
An electric fireplace is a great addition to the household. They come with different adjustable modes that can be used with a single click and can change a dreamy calm glow to a roaring flame for cold nights. They have a realistic sound that gives a feel of traditional fireplaces eliminating the risks associated with it and are much safer.
To assess practicality of the fireplace, we can judge it through its function. Its purpose is same as the classic wood fireplace and so is its function. It produces the same amount of heat as wood powered fire, eliminating the risk of flying sparks, smoke and other risks. These electric units generate no smoke and therefore don’t require ventilation. There is no need of getting a chimney built or a duct system.
Electric fireplaces offer several significant advantages over the other types:
*-These electric units are easy to install. They do not require a chimney and therefore can be installed in various rooms even if they don’t support wood-burning ventilation. They are light weight and easy to move and so can be used in different rooms as required.
*-An electric fireplace runs on electricity, which is less expensive as compared to fuel and gas both.
*-The heat is adjustable and can be set accordingly. This benefit was never available in traditional style as there was little control over how the fire looks. The fireplace is not heated up after usage, which reduces the chances of getting burnt accidentally. Especially with small children and pets, this is a significant advantage.
*-Electric fireplaces are easy to maintain and do not require lots of cleaning. They don’t produce ash and waste and are relatively maintenance free. Smoke and ash can also be hazardous to the health therefore these electric units are very favorable in houses with old people and small children.
