Electric fireplaces are the new sensation in terms of heating, and may be considered as the natural evolution of the traditional wood-fired fireplaces. Thanks to their modern and captivating design, electric fireplaces have an original style, perfectly blending with classic and tradition. They offer a safe, comfortable, functional and efficient technology, without losing sight of the key points, that is to say, charm, and elegance on which the choice of buying a traditional combustion fireplace generally focuses.
Through LED lighting and a special internal mechanism, electric fireplaces simulate the fire of a traditional fireplace. Right from the start, you will feel a pleasant warmth enveloping the whole room, thanks to a ventilation system that can heat rooms to 25 square metres. You can also choose to start only the flame effect, without heat diffusion, for a purely visually treat. If you do not have time to dedicate to the maintenance of a traditional fireplace, an electric fireplace is a right choice. Convenient and easy to use, all you need is a power socket to start the magic.

An electric stove fire has a straightforward structure, as a result of an equally elementary operation. The heat is produced through heating elements that will heat up once powered, leveraging the Joule effect to transform electrical energy into heat. This means that to light this type of fireplace you’ll just have to plug it to the power supply, without any installation work. Even smaller models can start heating the room in a few minutes, and the integration of a fan heater improving air circulation ensures the optimal the diffusion of heat inside the room.
The size and the heat produced increase as the power increases, and it is recommended to choose your electric fireplace according to your real needs. It is generally between 900 and 2000 Watts. The external structure can have different finishes, using stainless steel to ensure a more modern look or painted wood panelling better to match classic style environments.
A tempered glass hides the fake fireplace, which may look more or less realistic depending on the model you choose, but in general guarantees a good look. LED lights that illuminate reproductions of wood logs create the illusion of a flame, simulating the presence of burning embers. Some electric fireplaces incorporate a water basin and an ultrasonic nebuliser, to increase realism and generate a smoke effect.
As already mentioned, some electric fires can also be used just to create the optical effect of the flame, without actually producing heat. A useful function in hot seasons, simply to provide a more welcoming atmosphere. Most models come with a remote control to manage the few settings even more comfortably, straight from your sofa or chair.
An electric fireplace does not require the installation of a flue or ventilation system, and it becomes an attractive alternative to traditional wood or pellet systems, especiallywhen you live in a condominium; no building work or permits are required, and no neighbours will ever complain that they smell or see smoke, you will never have to call a chimney sweep.
You can move your electric fireplace from one room to another with extreme ease - at least when it’s not a recessed model, of course - and since no chimney is needed, you can position it wherever you like.
An electric fireplace is a turnkey product by definition; when you get it, it is ready to use, as it does not require assembly or installation, let alone testing. Once the plug is plugged in, you will be immediately operational, being able to choose the optimal temperature on and off even several times a day. All electric fireplaces you can find on Hi-Fi Tower include the sight of a flickering flame, thanks to special lights or optical fibres inside the fireplace, which appropriately create this effect.
The only downside of fake fireplaces lies in their low heat accumulation power; with the same speed with which they heat a room, once turned off they cool down. It is therefore particularly important to be able to move it from one room to another so that it can be used in as many rooms as possible. Before the purchase of your electric fireplace, we strongly recommend you to consider certain characteristics such as weight, size and transportability, which can make it easier to move it.
