Electrical fires have started to catch on again in recent years, especially for homeowners who want a viable and cost-effective alternative to gas. Easy to install and low maintenance, they can be used to heat any room in the house with minimal effort.

At Simon Turner Showrooms, we have a range of different electric fireplaces on offer to suit almost any home. Here are just four good reasons why you would possibly want to take a position in electric fireplace heater heating within the future.

100% efficient and fast heating

The latest electrical fires are highly efficient, up to 100% efficient in many cases, due to the fact that there is no need for a flue or chimney to let out smoke or emissions, so all heat is directed to your home.

Electric fires also reach a very fast temperature and, without fuel like gas, wood, or coal, they should be considered a particularly safe option, especially if you have children. Adjusting the heat level and controlling the visual appeal of your fire is easy and there are a variety of different models to choose from.

Flexibility and good looks

Electric fires offer a more flexible option than gas where you need a connection to the supply to work. If there is an electricity supply, or in some cases even just a socket where you want the fire to be installed, then it doesn’t take much more than flipping the switch if you want to create warmth and atmosphere.

The latest electric fire designs mean you can get that real flame effect whether you are providing heat or not. You also have a wide variety of electric range design options, from electric ranges and wall mounted fires to radiant bar and basket style fires.

Easy to install

Of all the heating systems you may have in your home, an electric fire is the easiest to install. If you have a freestanding fire, all you need to do is turn it off and plug it in. You don’t need to worry about plumbing or installing a fireplace to remove gas or smoke.

There’s a bit of extra work if you go for a wall-mounted variety, but it’s still not too big of an installation job. The benefit of this is that you can have electrical fires in almost any room in the house with little to no problems.

Low maintenance

Compared to other types of heating, electric fire is a very low maintenance option. Also, most modern electric fires come with some kind of warranty, so expect them to last for a good few years.

The operation is very simple and there are even varieties that you can get today that can be controlled by smart devices.

The most ecological option

Many people choose electricity because they want a greener option compared to fossil fuels like gas. If you choose a utility provider that specializes in renewable energy, you can be sure that the energy for your fire comes from a clean and reliable source such as solar or wind.

The good news is that you can find an electric stove that matches your décor quite easily. Explore our range of electric fireplaces by visiting our fireplace and fire showroom here in Exmouth, Devon.
