The hectic lives people endure today, with work and children, means there is less time to pay attention and take care of a real fire.
Electric fires have proven to be a great solution in many situations.
Electric fireplaces can be added to a Kitchen, dining or even a play room, as there is no need for a chimney. They can also appear very realistic with glowing coals and logs, glistening flames and heat.
Electric fireplaces also have safety benefits, if you have children, as electric fires aren’t hot when touched, so are particularly good for young families.
You can give your electric fireplace a traditional design with a cast iron effect or a very modern design using black glass and mounted on the wall. Surrounds can include rich wood tones, brick, stone and marble.
An electric fireplace can be fitted just for decoration or added to the overall look of the room depending on the brand. They can also provide as much as 10,000 BTUs of heat.
Electric fireplaces have an automatic shut off feature to prevent over-heating and are carefully tested to UL standards. There are also cost advantages in choosing an electric fire are running costs, regular usage will cost you around .02 per hour if only the flames are in function and .14 per hour when the heating elements comes in use.
