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.
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.
Scale to your space
Be sure to measure both the width and depth of your space to find a unit in the right size.
Tie into your room décor
Whatever your décor style, from classic to contemporary, rustic to traditional, look for an electric fireplace that matches your style.
A remote control allows you to turn the unit on and off from a distance.
A timer conveniently lets you set the fireplace to auto shut-off, in case you forget.
Fireplaces generally come with 5 to 10 different flame effects, mimicking a flame’s colour and the way it moves. Choose your favourites.
Look for Bluetooth-enabled models if you want to be able to turn on the fireplace with your smartphone before you even enter the room.
