How to Choose the Best Electric Fireplace

Electric fireplaces are one of the best investments for homeowners and renters alike. During the cool fall, winter and early spring months an electric fireplace can provide warmth in a jiffy while adding to the ambience of your room.

Before you can enjoy the benefits of having a fireplace, you first have to pick one out. Here’s a few tips to finding the best electric fireplace for your home.

Freestanding Units

If you want the easiest possible option for installation, or if you are renting your home, freestanding units are the way to go. They require very little setup time and provide the same amount of warmth that you’d get from say, expensive limestone fireplaces.

There are several options for this style of fireplace. You can combine them with furniture, your wall, or corner units to create a more functional piece. The design chooses are endless, giving you even more reason to select one for your home.

Consider Space Requirements

If your home or apartment is small, you clearly want to consider that while shopping. Many fireplaces are oversized to provide a more stylistic appearance. If you want to save on space, then measure the area you’re selecting ahead of time. Again, freestanding units might be the best option for your home.

Decide On Why You’re Buying One

The function of your fireplace should be the force behind your decision. For example, if you want an additional heat source in your living room you may need a larger unit. Should you want one to heat a smaller room, like the bedroom, a less powerful unit would be ideal.
If you already have a fireplace cut out, but don’t want to use real wood, then an electric fireplace insert would be a better option.

Select the Best Brand

At the Fireplace Superstore, we know that some brands are just better than others, that’s why we carry top brands like Legend Fire and many other electric fireplace manufacturers. Before you head into our shop, it may be best to research these top brands and compare them to your needs.
