Why Modern Electric Fireplaces Are Safer

There’s no denying that fireplaces are a wonderful addition to any home. Unfortunately, traditional fireplaces have caused countless fires, leaving many homeowners frightened to use them.

There is an alternative, however.

Today, modern electric fireplaces are offering families a safer option to an open flame fireplace. Electric fireplaces themselves have undergone a renovation of sorts, with stricter guidelines for their design. Let’s take a look at a few reasons why an electric fireplace is a safe decision to make.

No harmful Smoke

Smoke fumes have been linked to respiratory issues in children and adults. Allergies and other health issues can also spawn from indoor fireplaces. An electric corner fireplace won’t have that effect on your health or that of your children or pets.

No Dangerous Open Flame

Children and pets are particularly vulnerable to open flame fires. You never have to worry about your child getting too close to the fire with an electrical unit. Most are cool to the touch, preventing burns or serious injuries.

Automatic Shut-Off Features

Some electric fireplaces come with timers and programmable cycles that enable you to choose when the unit is on and when it shuts off. This is far different than a traditional fireplace, wherein you could easily fall asleep with the fire still lit. Technology takes away the headache and the worry about having a fireplace in your home.

No Sparks or Branches

Unlike traditional fireplaces, electric fireplaces don’t create sparks that can easily catch fire to nearby items. Branches and pieces of firewood are equally dangerous and bring in extra dirt and debris that you shouldn’t have to deal with. Even for the novice fireplace owner, modern electric fireplaces make it easy to prevent accidents, protect your family, and stay warm all year long.

Is it Right for You?

There is no right or wrong to buying a fireplace. The key is to choose a unit that works best for your family. There is also no denying that electric units are easier to control and reduce the likelihood of human error. Ultimately, it’s up to you and your family to make the decision, but you can’t go wrong with an electric fireplace.
