Electric Fires

Want a flickering flame and extra warmth? Electric fireplaces, inserts & freestanding stoves meet the special challenges for folks living in historic homes, apartments and other settings.

WHY AN ELECTRIC FIRE?  Electric fireplaces require no venting, no gas lines, no technical expertise. Just unbox your electric fireplace, plug it in and enjoy! We offer a great selection of freestanding electric stoves, electric fireplaces with mantels, wall mount electric fireplaces, and inserts that retrofit into an existing fireplace. Electric fires are economical and require no special preparation to install and use. Simply plug into any household electric outlet and enjoy clean, efficient heat in any room. Costs 1-4 cents an hour to operate without the heater, 6-8 cents hourly with the heater in operation. Many manufacturers are even offering LED lighting that provides years and years of service without ever changing a light bulb.

Old, disabled chimneys are not a problem with electric fireplace inserts. No venting is required - installation literally is as easy as plugging in a television. Unlike vent-free gas fires, electric fires have NO FUMES.  Add the charm of a fireplace, stove or wall mount fire in any room! The powder room at our store is a bit chilly, so we added an electric fireplace in there, too. Where could you use some extra heat this winter? 

Electric fires provide enough heat (4500-5000 BTU average) to serve as the sole source of heat for a room size of about 400 square feet. They're great for sun porches that lack central heat, or any room that's just a bit chilly. Great as a zone heater - turn down your central heating thermostat then turn on the electric fire in the family room, den, bedroom - anywhere you find yourself cozying up on a chilly day

Dancing flames offer a realistic fire ambiance and provide a warm, soothing glow in any room. Enjoy a "fire" any time of year - turn on the heater in winter, use on "flame only" setting in the summer. An electric fire is an excellent zone heater that's capable of heating about 400 square feet.
