There’s no denying that the ambiance of a fireplace has almost no equal. There’s something special about sitting in front of a fireplace that invites us to linger a little longer. However, having the maintenance of a real fireplace, along with it not being terribly environmentally friendly, makes some people reconsider having one at all. Electric fireplaces may be the perfect way for you to have your cake and eat it too.
Because a traditional fireplace requires raw wood to fuel them, it obviously means contributing to deforestation while also contributing to the rise in carbon dioxide being released into the air.
With these serious issues on the rise, it’s nice to look at eco-friendly heat source alternatives. Consider using renewable energy like wind, solar, tidal or biomass, which has zero greenhouse gas emissions, to make your electric fireplace even more efficient.
Another great feature of an electric fireplace is the fact that they produce no fumes or toxic greenhouse gases, and they’re surprisingly safe. Some electric fireplaces even come with air filters designed to improve the quality of the ambient air.
You can’t beat the installation of an electric fireplace; in many cases, you only need to plug them in and turn them on. For some wall-mounted options, having them installed is similar to that of a flat-screen television set. Another bonus is that when in use, many are still cool to the touch.
During cooler months, it can be tempting to turn up the heat, causing our bills to go sky high. An electric fireplace can be a smart, energy-efficient alternative to heating up an entire home. Many of them are able to heat about 400 square feet of living space. With so many styles to choose from, you’re bound to be able to find one that blends easily and beautifully with your existing décor.
