An electrical fireplace is an electrical stove that can be inserted into a traditional fireplace. Instead of chopping or buying wood, hauling it in, and then cleaning up the mess afterwords; these provide a perfect alternative to a warm fire. I recently purchased my first home which was built in 1948. I had a fireplace that was not suitable for burning an actual fire. An electric fireplace insert was the perfect solution for me since it requires no ventilation. As an added bonus to providing warmth on cold winter nights, it can be lit without turning on the heat. It is great for setting the atmosphere at dinner parties or just curling up on the couch and reading a book. As enjoyable as it is the electrical fireplace is also just as practical. I can already see the difference in my utility bills just by having the fireplace on and turning down my thermostat a few degrees.
In some older homes there are the coal burning fireplaces which are smaller than the traditional wood burning fireplaces. The inserts comes in both sizes. Most inserts run off a traditional three plug electrical outlet which makes installing a breeze. Another perk is that the insert is not permanent so you can always take the unit with you when you leave. So whatever season it is you can enjoy an electrical fireplace a thousand times more than a wood burning fireplace. I found my fireplace insert to be worth the money, easy to install, and still saving me money in the long run. I would purchase again in heartbeat.
An electric fireplace insert is easy to install and works great at heating your house.
