Six Fun Facts about Electric Fireplaces

Searching for a new fireplace for your home can be exciting. You’re doing research and sorting through size, style, features and more. That’s some serious work and we think you deserve a little distraction. Check out these six fun facts about electric fireplaces.


Beauty Paired With Function

An electric fireplace can add beauty and charm to any room. But the best part is that it’s also functional! Electric fireplaces can provide warmth to any room, keeping you comfortable without having to raise the temperature throughout your entire home. 


Not So Ancient History

When we think about the origins of fire, we tend to get the image of men in caves making a great discovery. For centuries, people have gathered around a fire or hearth for warmth as well as to prepare meals. As humanity evolved, chimneys were created (around the Middle Ages). Building off of this feature, electric fireplaces were developed in the early portion of the 20th century. Then, sometime in the 1980s, electric fireplaces began to grow in popularity.


Energy Efficient 

Many people look for energy efficiency when they choose a fireplace. You can’t beat an electric fireplace in that regard. They don’t waste any energy and can cost as little to operate as your coffee maker!


That’s Some Range  

Looking for more bang for your buck? An electric fireplace can really pack a punch when you’re trying to heat a room. In fact, electric fireplaces can heat a space of up to about 500 square feet in size.



Have you always wanted a fireplace in your bathroom? Or maybe you’ve dreamt of a fireplace burning in the background as you curl up in bed. Whatever your heart is set on, you can do that with an electric fireplace! The ease of installation offers more options as to where you place them throughout your home. Get creative as you pick out the perfect spot for your new electric fireplace. 


Fun With Features

Standard fireplaces are fairly straightforward. You know exactly how it’s going to look when a fire is burning. But with electric fireplaces, you have the option to explore features and choose according to your preferences. You can select a very trim option for tighter spaces, such as an apartment. Some people prefer to adjust the brightness of the flame or intensity of the heat. The choice is yours as you pick out the best fireplace for your home.
