If you're concerned about the environment - and your own health - then you should know about the harmful polluting effects of wood smoke on the air around you. When wood burns, it releases carbon monoxide, oxides of nitrogen, volatile organic compounds (the major components of acid rain), ozone, and particulate matter that can make breathing difficult. It can also contain toxic and cancer-causing fumes such as benzene and formaldehyde.
When smoke from burning wood is trapped inside the home, you and your family are forced to breathe these pollutants into your lungs. Those with chronic respiratory diseases like asthma or emphysema, or with heart disease, should not burn wood fires at all.
Even worse, when these fumes escape into the atmosphere, they contribute to air pollution, damaging crops, property and the environment as a whole.
An electric fireplace stove has no harmful emissions. In fact, electric heater fireplaces and stoves can go anywhere in your home because they don't require a chimney or vent. They are a clean, healthy source of heat.
When we talk about "efficiency" with heaters, we mean how much heat is produced from the amount of fuel used to create it. With electric heaters fireplaces transform 100 percent of the electricity used into heat to warm you and your room. In contrast, most of a wood fire's heat is used to burn combust the log - most of what you invest in buying wood ends up as smoke and ash, not heat!
Added to that is the inefficiency of most built-in fireplaces. Chimneys are designed to get smoke out of the room, but in the process they draw heat away from the room too. While the space right around the fireplace might be warm, the rest of your house will get colder as the outdoor air seeps in to replace the hot air going up the chimney. Because electric fireplace heaters don't need venting or chimneys, every bit of hot air you put into the room stays in the room, so you'll stay more comfortable.
