When you think that the central heating doesn’t give enough warmth, or hasn’t got any atmosphere, you may want to buy an extra heater. Here you have the choice between gas and electric fireplaces. It is wrong to think that the electric fireplaces will be more expensive in use than the gas versions. No, the latest models are cost effective and take care of the environment. They don’t exhaust bad smoke or killing CO2.

How do they work? Well, of course you have to plug them into a standard wall outlet. In about ten minutes you’ll have a crackling fire!The presence of an electric fireplace will add more coziness to your rooms. You can put them in a big house or a small condo. They even look real: the flames of the electric insert are life-like and will warm your room easily (up to 150 square feet of space).  It is possible to buy electric fireplaces if more than one size. They come in sizes 23? 28? And 33? This measurement is the width of the front of the insert. In goes without saying that larger units have larges log sets and larger flames.

These will fit just anywhere. In the living room, in the den, in the bedrooms? Wherever. There even exist portable kits, which you can take with you as you go. Or there are corner kits, which make excellent use of lost spaces. Shops offer various models in electric fireplaces. You have them with surrounds of real wood, or real marble, stone and such. What you choose is up to you. The absence of heat also allows you to place shelves around the fireplace, or a bookcase next to it.

You can buy electric fireplaces from about $299, with prices going up to $2,300. Of course, for this price you’ll have a home entertainment center included! In fact, you only pay about $200 for the electric insert (meaning blower, log set and controls).  What you pay over this $200 is just for decoration and romance, and depends on your taste and budget. Most of these electric fireplaces are well made though and have an attractive design.
