How to choose an electric fireplace

Adding an electric fireplace to your home not only gives you another heat source, it’s also a stylish addition to any room. Find the perfect one for your space.

BENEFITS

A cozy warm room

Most electric fireplaces can heat a room of about 400 square feet.

Safe and cool to the touch

While your space will be warm and comfortable, your electric fireplace will stay cool to the touch. 

Type

Mantle Fireplaces

If you’re looking for a classic fireplace shape, you’ll want a mantle fireplace. These units add a level of sophistication to formal spaces, like a dining room, or create a cozy atmosphere in more casual locations, like your family room.

TV Stand Fireplaces

If you want a design that offers a dual function, look for a TV Stand fireplace. These models are made to hold your television and often include extra storage for media components. These fireplaces are great in more casual spaces, like a rec room.

Be sure to check the maximum weight and size capacity of the unit, to make sure it can hold your television.

Wall-Mounted Fireplaces

If space is a consideration, a wall-mounted fireplace could be your best bet. These units have a more modern aesthetic and can easily be used in any room, including dens and other unconventional spaces.
