Top 5 Reasons to Buy an Electric Fireplace

January 26, 2023

1- The Fireplace for Everyone

Unlike traditional gas or wood fireplaces which require venting, electric fireplaces require zero venting. This means that they can be installed virtually anywhere. Electric fireplaces provide the same comfort, ambiance, and warmth of a traditional fireplace, however, they are ventless and don’t require gas lines or wood storage.

Electric fireplaces meet an ever-increasing need in the industry. More and more people are being told that they cannot install gas fireplaces or wood burning fireplaces in their apartments, townhomes, or homes. These restrictions are being placed on renovations, detached new builds, and townhome developments by both local governments and strata’s throughout North America.

Since electric fireplaces do not require venting they can be installed in these restricted homes. Condo, townhome, and homeowners rejoice. Electric fireplaces are a fantastic alternative to installing a traditional fireplace. Whether you are restricted by regulations, or just want to install something different, then an electric fireplace is for you!

2 – Go Green: Emission Free Fireplaces

Electric fireplaces are the greenest fireplaces available today. They produce zero emissions and burn zero fuel. The only input is electricity; therefore depending on how the electricity is produced, an electric fireplace can be 100% carbon neutral!

Electricity has long been the greenest way to heat your home; however, a baseboard heater, which is how electricity has been traditionally used for heating, is typically quite inefficient. They are often placed underneath windows and are always fighting cold air and lack the air circulation ability to effectively heat a room.  In addition, electric baseboard heaters can cost an arm and a leg to heat your home. According to one utility corporation they can account for up to 44% of your total yearly electricity costs.

With an electric fireplace you can strategically heat the rooms where you spend the most time and the built-in fan helps effectively circulate warm air throughout the room. Regency Skope fireplaces are Ecodesign Compliant and adhere to strict energy consumption regulations. Electricity is once again an effective and cost-efficient way to warm portions of your home.
