Installing a fireplace to your home will give your home a more comfortable and cozy feel to any home. There are typically three different types of fireplaces to choose from including wood fireplaces, gas fireplaces, and electric fireplaces which The Energy House has. Picking the right type of fireplace for your home may be often times a difficult decision. There are pros and cons of the three fireplace types however installing an electric fireplace to your home is often a popular decision now and here are some of the reasons why.

Low Maintenance

Electric fireplaces are very easy to maintain therefore you don’t have to worry too much about taking too much time to maintain it. Because they do not burn real wood or do produce smoke or fumes, the maintenance requirements for an electric fireplace is significantly lower than gas and wood fireplaces.  Because it’s easy to turn on and off, you don’t have to waste your time trying to clean up the mess that wood or gas fireplaces can make.

Environmentally Friendly

Traditional wood fireplaces create fumes and may add toxic gases in the air which can be very harmful to people around. With electric fireplaces, there is no wood that needs to be chopped down and no gas that has to be used to get the heat as all you have to do is turn on the fireplace with a switch. The electric fireplaces at The Energy House are all environmentally friendly which many homeowners worry about.

Low Cost

Installing fireplaces can often times be a very expensive process. Electric fireplaces can often times be a lot cheaper to install. Also because you don’t have to worry about buying wood for electric fireplaces or worry about a chimney cleaning, electric fireplaces are the way to go. Electric fireplaces can make any home a unique look at a low cost compared to a wood or gas fireplace.
