• The Electric Option
    What pops into your mind when someone says “electric fireplace”? The cheesy one with fake-looking flames your grandma had in her living room? Well, times have changed and electric fireplaces have come a long way since those days.

    Today’s electric fireplaces have more realistic flames and throw off more heat than those of the past, and they have other benefits worth consideration too.

    Cost
    Electric fireplaces are generally inexpensive to purchase and they don’t require ventilation or a chimney, so installation is a snap. And it costs only about three cents an hour to operate one, so electric fireplaces are cost effective direct heat sources.



    Air Quality
    Because they have no emissions, fumes or pollutants of any kind, electric fireplaces won’t compromise the indoor air quality of your home.



    Environmental
    Electricity is often considered a green alternative to fossil fuels or burning raw materials. And your home’s electricity may already be sourced or partially sourced from green energy derived from wind, sunlight or geothermal.



    Realism
    As you may know, the flames in electric fireplaces are not real fire. Some use reflective light technology, which in simple terms means shining light on a background made of fabric or another material. The material can be stationary or blown by a fan to create movement. SimpliFire™ electric fireplaces utilize a material made of mesh that provides a realistic flame pattern.



    So it really is true. Electric fireplaces offer a unique set of benefits that make them an attractive option worth consideration. Have a look at the SimpliFire models available here.
