Electric Fireplace Heaters

When it comes to interior furnishings like an electric fireplace, some people prefer to stand out from the crowd. A firebox encased in a wood surround that sits on the floor is not for them. They prefer something that will be a conversation piece. Fortunately, they can achieve the desired result without spending a lot of money, thanks to the economic concept of competition. Here are just a few fireplaces powered by electricity that have a unique appearance.

The Prolectrix Bamoral fireplace is just 6.25 inches deep and mounts on a wall. The included remote is used to adjust the flame brightness and switch between the two heat settings. A sleek black surround and background highlight the beautiful flame, which is set behind a row of rocks. People can install this fireplace in the smallest room without compromising any floor space. Best of all, this model costs under $200 and free shipping may be available.

If wood is more your style, you may have difficulty finding a wall-mounted electric fireplace. However, companies like Fire Sense do make these, selling them for under $200. The Fire Sense model features MDF construction, a natural stained wood frame, realistic flames, glowing embers, a glass front, and a remote control. This fireplace plugs into a standard household outlet and the six-foot cord makes installation convenient in any area.

Some homeowners prefer a rustic look, making an electric stove the perfect choice. Quality Craft offers an antique-style electric stove heater in matte black or a nice cranberry color. Both units feature dual heat settings, a variable intensity flame effect, and sell for under $70. Weighing just 20 pounds, this stove is easy to move between rooms in the home for supplemental heat during cold months and an attractive flame when the weather is warmer.

Quality Craft also makes a traditional 26-inch fireplace that is taller and narrower than the standard version. The mantel has classical styling and the espresso simulated wood veneer finish is dark and rich. Rooms up to 340 square feet can be heated by the 1250-watt firebox. Separate heat and flame controls and a realistic flame effect are two features customers love. Another benefit is that this item retails for just $130. People can warm a small bathroom, den, or all-season porch without turning up their central heating system.

For shoppers with money to spend, the $950 36-inch built-in LED fireplace from Brookstone is a great choice. This electric fireplace can be hardwired or plugged into a standard outlet. The zero-clearance design makes it possible to flush mount this unit to tile, drywall, or other surfaces. Compatible with above or below grade rooms, exterior or interior walls, and even corners, this remotely controlled fireplace is perfect for people with discriminating taste.
