We give the central heating and a/c’s gas furnace a break when it is cold in the day time or waking hours and use the electric fireplace
If you are looking for a wonderful fireplace and not having the money to pay to have one built into your home, the best option would be an electric fireplace. An electric fireplace is nothing like a proper fireplace, however it gives off the same ambiance and all while acting as a certainly big space gas furnace at the same time. Also electric fireplaces are not too expensive. You will spend a little over one thousand dollars for a good one, and it is something you can certainly install yourself without the need to hire a fireplace professional to do it. That is the other bonus about having an electric fireplace. I myself have now had an electric fireplace for about 7 years now and it has been doing me and my family real good. At the holiday season around Christmas it is something that can be decorated just like a real authentic fireplace. If you were to go the other fake fireplace route you would not be able to hang anything near or on it because we would be talking about a gas fireplace. Those are not as wonderful as electric fireplaces anyhow. Also, with the electric fireplace acting as a big furnace we have been having great fortune in saving money on our yearly electric bills as well. We give the central heating and a/c’s gas furnace a break when it is cold in the day time or waking hours and use the electric fireplace. It works well to really heat up the living room area of our home. I can not say enough wonderful things about the electric fireplace!
