How To Determine What Is The Best Model For Your culture
Before an individual makes their model choice, there are questions that need to be asked. Is this an “in-wall’, permanent installation?
How much space is available?
Does the unit need to be stand alone or be portable?
Do you require the unit to provide more than one function, like house your TV and media components?
What are your supplemental heat requirements?
Once you have answered these questions and set your parameters, selection for the best fit is the next step.
Built-in electric fireboxes are permanent additions to a home or business and are ideal for renovation or new construction projects. They can be placed anywhere in a room: on an inside or outside wall, above or below grade, or even into corners. These units are typically hardwired to household current. Plug-in fireboxes are independent units and are offered separately or paired with a selection of cabinet, corner, and entertainment center fireplace mantels.
They are a nice fit for use on a freestanding wall or in corner space. Another ideal plug-in unit is an electric log insert set, which is an excellent solution for converting an existing gas or wood burning fireplace into an electrical unit. Other options include electric stoves that look like a traditional wood burning cast iron stove without the mess, and a wall mount fireplace that adds a focal point to even the smallest spaces.
