Electric Fireplace - Best Option To Save Your Heating Costs

With increasing concern for the depletion of forests and the associated implications on environment, people today are looking for heating systems that use renewable energy to warm their homes. Besides, the increasing costs to maintain heating systems has led to a sea of changes in the buying behavior of the people.

Electric fireplaces are considered as one of the best heating systems for homes today as they significantly reduce the heating costs. Here, we will discuss on how they help you in cutting the heating costs.

Different types of fire places
We all know that a fireplace has great influence in shaping the aesthetics of a home; without a fireplace the home is no more than a house. Fireplaces are generally categorized into two types: traditional (gas or wood burning fireplaces) and modern (electric fireplaces).

Traditional fireplaces: gas and wood burning fireplaces

Wood burning fireplaces are fueled by wood. They give out a lot of heat. The wood burns in a metallic chamber. It enchants the home with mild crackling noise of burning log coupled with an aesthetic appeal.

Gas fireplaces are more convenient for installation (compared to wood burning fireplaces) as they are cased in compact structure. They are run by gas which produces large glowing flame giving out heat. They are available in three varieties: the direct vent, the top vent model and one without any chimney.

Electric fireplaces and how they save your money
The above mentioned fireplaces (traditional ones) were considered as good heating sources until easy to install and operate electric fireplaces came into market. Electric fireplaces offer many benefits, the major one being saving costs on operation and maintenance.

Electricity is inexpensive fuel compared to the other two (wood and gas). Unlike wood and gas, electricity is easily available. Thus, electric fireplaces certainly save your money.

Localized heating: Unlike traditional fireplaces, which are fixed at a place, electric fireplaces can be moved to any part of the house. You can use them in any room just by plugging them in the standard electrical outlet. With electric fireplace, you need not come and sit where the fireplace is installed, instead you can move it wherever necessary – be it a kitchen or a bedroom.

Inbuilt thermostat to save energy
It is very difficult to control the temperature in the room with a traditional fireplace. But it is not the case with electric fireplaces as they generally have inbuilt thermostats. The system automatically gets switched off once the temperature reaches the desired level and thus it prevents the consumption of additional energy.

Less maintenance
Electric fireplaces need little or no maintenance compared to traditional fireplaces that run on wood or gas. Traditional fireplaces that run on wood require periodic cleaning as ash from burning wood accumulates in the chimney. Traditional fireplaces, particularly the wood burning ones, force you to put a lot of effort, right from purchasing, transporting, storage and usage of the fuel (wood in this case). Electric fireplaces, on the other hand, just need occasional cleaning off the dust.

Less installation costs
Compared to traditional fireplaces, the installation cost of electric fireplaces is significantly less. This is because the platform or the structure to mount the wood burning fireplace requires masonry. It virtually requires changing the design of the place in the home where the fireplace is to be installed. Contrariwise, electric fireplaces are easy to install; no need of any professional to install them. This obviously will save lot of installation costs. Electric fireplaces are suitable for dwelling units in the form of apartments, where renovation of space or putting chimneys is difficult.

To conclude, electric fireplaces are more efficient than those that run either by gas or wood. They are easy to install and more environmental friendly. Compared to traditional fireplaces, they are more economical.
