Electric fireplaces are designed to replicate wood, coal or natural gas burning fireplaces. Many electric fireplaces feature 3D flame effects, faux logs and cozy warmth, without any of the hassle that comes with actual flames. Some electric fireplaces offer additional features that traditional fireplaces don’t have like color changing faux flames, degree-specific temperature control, remote control, automatic shut-off and additional storage.
These fireplaces are a great way to warm your space, without the permanence and maintenance of a fire-burning fixture.
