USA: Electric Fireplaces: Electric Fireplace Manufacturers
ABOUT ELECTRIC FIREPLACES
Electric fireplaces have advanced considerably in recent years, and now provide a more realistic imitation of a wood fire. In addition to a glowing log effect, flames can be projected onto a glass screen at the back of the fireplace.
Most electric fireplaces provide an electric heater with quiet fan, to provide up to 5,000 BTU of heat. The heater and the visual effect may be switched independently. The heat is intended to take the chill off the room, providing supplementary rather than providing full heating.
The advantages of electric fireplaces are that they are extremely convenient, and can be placed anywhere in a room.
