What is an Electric Fireplace?

They simply plug into an electrical outlet. You don’t need fuel, like gas or wood.

Electric fireplaces produce heat and integrate easily into the style of your home or business. This eco-friendly alternative to traditional fireplaces doesn’t require renovations or construction to work safely. Plus, most models include realistic flames.

This is a great alternative to a traditional fireplace if you want the ambiance of a fireplace without the structural commitment.

How Do Electric Fireplaces Work?

While most electric fireplace designs replicate the appearance of flames, they don’t produce real flames. Instead, they produce heat with an internal electric heater.

Most newer models operate either by remote control or with switches on the fireplace. To produce heat, simply plug into a wall outlet and select the desired heat output level.

Can You Install an Electric Fireplace Outside?

Only use electric fireplaces rated specifically for outdoor use outside. Most electric fireplaces don’t have an outdoor rating. The electrical components must have proper protection from the Colorado weather, like a weatherproof cover.

If you would like to install a wall-mounted electric fireplace on a porch or patio, we’re here to help you select the right model for your needs.

What is the Difference Between an Electric Fireplace and an Electric Fireplace Insert?

As we’ve described, an electric fireplace is easy to use in any area of your home where there is an electrical outlet.

An electric fireplace insert is specifically designed to fit into a fireplace. Two options include plug-in and built-in. The plug-in option sits inside the existing fireplace and plugs into an outlet. A built-in model fits into the firebox and attaches to an electricity source.

A fireplace insert works well as an alternative for an existing fireplace if you don’t want to use wood or gas for fuel.

Is an Electric Fireplace Right for You?

If you want the feel of a fireplace without the responsibility, an electric model is a smart choice.

Owning a wood-burning or gas fireplace requires regular maintenance to keep your system safe. An electric fireplace requires less maintenance and is more affordable.

Choose the right fireplace option for your space and budget.
