Why choose an ordinary space heater? Electric fireplaces and stoves add to the ambience of your living space, offering the same cozy comfort of a traditional wood or gas fire without the hassle or mess. You'll enjoy all the money-saving benefits of a space heater and get the pleasure of fireside living as a bonus.
Electric fireplaces and stoves are portable, don't require professional installation, and don't require chimney's to operate. A vent free fireplace is the perfect choice for an apartment or small home that doesn't have the luxury of a built-in fireplace. Or add an extra fireplace to a bedroom or den without needing to remodel. Imagine being able to enjoy the dancing flames in your faux fireplace from the comfort of your own bed!
