Today, we're going to talk about some of the features to consider when making a selection of the best electric fireplace for your home. For this reason Boyel Living has researched and summarized the following features: installation, flame (mode) settings, heat control and safety, and style choices.
While electric fireplaces usually do not require very specialized skills or installation services, the ease of installation depends on the type of fireplace you purchase and the area you install it in. For example, putting an electric insert in an existing fireplace area should be simple, but carving out space for a recessed installation may require some additional planning. Some models of electric fireplaces are placed on the floor, while others can be mounted on the wall, so you'll need to take into account where you want to place it and how it relates to the electrical outlet.
Flame (mode) settings
Flame settings include everything from flicker speed to flame brightness and flame color. Some electric fireplaces offer variable flicker speed, automatically switchable flame color, and a sound that simulates a wood flame, while others may have only one switch.
One of the benefits of electric fireplaces is the ability to control the temperature at which heat is generated. The range and zone of adjustment varies from unit to unit. Some electric fireplaces on the market offer two to three heat settings, while others offer an adjustable thermostat.
While the benefit of having an electric fireplace is that you don't need to worry about dozing off in front of a flame, and the flame is contained, there can still be a safety hazard of overheating. That's why some electric fireplaces offer a built-in timer that automatically turns off the unit after a certain amount of time. Some electric fireplaces are even self-regulating, which means they will shut off when the desired temperature is reached.
Since an electric fireplace is usually a focal point of any room, you'll want to make sure you choose one that matches your tastes and the surrounding decor. There are a variety of details to consider, from the exterior of the frame to the interior components, such as faux logs or crystal.
