Important Qualities of Electric Fireplaces, Part 2

In part one of this two-part blog, we went over some of the qualities that make electric fireplaces so popular and useful today. Bringing many of the benefits of a traditional fireplace without some of the major maintenance needs and other factors, electric fireplaces are perfect for many homeowners.

At Uintah Fireplace and Design, we’re proud to offer not only a wide range of fireplace products, including electric models, gas and gas insert fireplaces and many other modern fireplace options, but also home remodeling services that include helping you design a whole new space around your fireplace. Here are a few additional qualities of electric fireplaces that make them the centerpiece of many home remodeling projects.

Electric Fireplace Efficiency

One of the top qualities of electric fireplaces is how efficient they are for the homeowner. They require no fuel source like gas, instead using an electric heater that requires less power than you might think. Not only does this lower the amount of energy used, it allows for said energy to be used far more efficiently and not be wasted in even trace amounts.

In-Wall Builds

As part of our home remodeling services, we can easily build an electric fireplace into your wall. There are many models that come with a specific design allowing for this in-wall build, and we’ll happily direct you to the best option for your space needs and aesthetic taste.

Realistic Flames

There are several electric fireplace options out there, including a few different lighting systems that create different kinds of realistic flame appearance. There are some models with triple-lighting systems, and others that even incorporate 3D flame effects that many people will legitimately confuse with real flames.

In addition, many of our models contain uplighting and downlighting combinations. These allow for an amazing display that you can customize to your precise desires, whether you want a sparkling and bright fire or something a bit more subdued.

Lack of Emissions

As we noted in part one of this blog series, electric fireplaces do not require any venting. This is because they don’t create emissions, a valuable factor that many environmentally conscious homeowners are prioritizing in their fireplace choice.

Modern Options

In previous generations, some may have rightly considered early electric fireplace models to be a bit tacky. They were clearly cheap, with obvious fake flames that even a young child could spot without much trouble.

Today, though? This could not be further from the case. As we just noted above, modern technology allows for incredibly realistic flame designs, plus heating formats that mimic a real fireplace. Rather than appearing cheap or out-of-style, these models are growing in popularity and are extremely trendy in new homes today.
