My baby sister ordered her first electric fireplace and she is overjoyed by what she got. Sure it cost me two grand of her savings, but it was money well spent. Electric fireplaces are like large space heaters and can heat your home real nice and fast. And if you were to run the electric fireplace in place of your central heating and AC unit’s heater, you can save some funds on energy use because electric fireplaces won’t take up as much energy as a central heating and AC unit. Even a central heating and AC unit with a top grade SEER rating. Also electric fireplaces are good for holiday decorations at Christmas. If you had a gas fireplace you would not manage to decorate it because of the risk of things catching fire. So, if you can’t have a real authentic fireplace in your home, an electric fireplace is the best second alternative and much cheaper. Even though there’s no flame, you have the feel and atmosphere of a real authentic fireplace with an electric fireplace. This is why my baby sister loves the electric fireplace she just paid for so much. She truly recommends getting one to anyone and most people who do not have a real authentic fireplace and would like to have a fireplace in their lake house if they can spare the small investment. At times you can find them on sale even cheaper than what she paid. You just have to check around to see when and where sales on electric fireplaces are.
