If you would like to add a warm welcoming feature to your home, that adds function as well as feature, consider an electric fireplace. Mister Sparky electricians in Huntsville, AL can provide the installation and other electrical services you need. There are a variety of electric fireplaces available, and one is sure to suit your style and size. Many people consider an electric fireplace to be preferable over gas or traditional wood burning fireplaces. Let’s look at the specifics of the advantages an electric fireplace provides over gas or wood:
Cost to Operate
- While results will vary from brand to brand, electric fireplaces typically only burn pennies per hour to operate. Furthermore, selecting the flame only feature without heat drops the cost of operation even further.
- Safety is the second advantage provided by an electric fire place over gas or wood fireplaces. An electric fireplace provides the glow of hot embers and/or dancing flames, and offers electric heat, yet it does not require a chimney. Safety features will vary from brand and model. However, tip over shut off is often standard, as is cool touch technology and an automatic shut off feature.
- Many electric fireplaces offer features such as remote control, flame brightening, and heat output. Electric fireplaces simplify adding ambiance, and heat when desired to a room. This means on a mid summer’s night you can have the appearance of a fire, without the heat. All you need is an electrical outlet, and your good to go. When your ready for an outlet installation, contact our electricians in Huntsville, AL for prompt assistance.
- Electric fireplaces don’t create a smoke odor, an advantage for those who are allergic to it. Unlike a traditional wood or gas fireplace, carbon monoxide is not a risk with electric heat. So you can enjoy the appearance of a “fire” without the risk of toxic gases or a fire.
- Easy installation is possible, and in most cases you simply plug the device up. Some models hang on a wall, others are free standing, while a new arrival is part of an entertainment center. In fact you can place them in any room, including offices, bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchens for the addition of beauty, relaxation, and warmth when and where you need it. Our electricians in Huntsville, AL offer the electrical installation you require.
- Easy maintenance is limited to dusting routinely. There’s no ashes to take out, nor gas leaks to worry about. Just turn it on and enjoy.
- Provides an economical source of supplemental heat. Imagine the warmth and dancing fire in the master bath while you soak in your hot tub. Or in your kitchen while you and your special someone share coffee in front of the convincingly real faux fire.
