2. high energy efficiency
Electric fireplace is one of the most effective ways to heat a house faster and more efficiently than wood burning fireplace. As the heat rises, the traditional chimney fireplace dissipates all the heat through the chimney. The electric fireplace also uses LED technology, which consumes less energy than ordinary incandescent bulbs. LED bulbs have a normal life of 50000 hours and are mercury free. This helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and reduce operating costs. The heat generated by the touch of LED bulb is about 90% less than that of incandescent bulb.

For Wood Burning Fireplaces, the costs associated with installation and maintenance are often too expensive. Using a traditional fireplace, you may need to pay $7000 – $10000 or more for installation. In addition, related costs will increase rapidly. Inspection of chimneys, cleaning of chimneys, wood and heat loss from chimneys will increase these costs. The basic material price of gas fireplace is about $2500, and the installation and decoration cost is about $2500. Gas fireplaces also require annual service inspections as well as chimney inspections at a cost ranging from $100 – $200.
