Electric Fireplaces FAQ's

How do electric fireplaces work?

Electric fireplaces work by drawing in cool air from the room, heating it internally using a heating coil, and then pushing the warm air back out into the room by a fan. They also use LED lights and a mirror element to create a realistic flame effect. New LCD electric fireplaces use an LCD screen to display the flames. In both cases, flames and heat operate independently allowing you to enjoy flames in the summer without the heat. To operate an electric fireplace, all you need is access to electricity or a power outlet to plug them in, and they can be operated with a remote control. Smart electric fireplaces can even be controlled via mobile app and voice control for convenience.

How efficient are electric fireplaces?

Electric fireplaces are very efficient at converting energy into heat, with nearly 100% of the electricity used converted directly into heat output. They don't require a chimney or vent, so no heat is lost through ventilation, making them more efficient for heating a room compared to traditional wood or gas fireplaces. Additionally, they allow for zone heating, which means you can heat only the rooms you're using, further reducing energy costs.

Who installs electric fireplaces?

Electric fireplaces can often be installed by the homeowner themselves, especially if they are freestanding or plug-in models, as these require minimal setup—usually just unboxing and plugging into a standard electrical outlet. For more complex installations, such as wall-mounted or built-in units, it's advisable to hire a qualified electrician or a professional installer to ensure that the unit is installed safely and according to local building codes. This is particularly important for direct-wire models that need to be connected to your home's electrical system.

How long do electric fireplaces last?

Electric fireplaces generally last between 10 to 20 years. To maximize longevity, purchasing from a reputable brand is crucial, as quality can vary significantly between manufacturers. At Modern Blaze, we ensure that every brand we offer meets our high standards for quality.

How much are electric fireplaces?

The cost of electric fireplaces can vary widely based on size, features, and design. Generally, prices range from as low as $300 for basic, compact models to over $5,000 for high-end, built-in units that feature advanced technology like realistic flame effects, smart home integration and more powerful heating systems. Mid-range models typically cost between $700 and $2,500, offering a balance of quality, features, and aesthetics.
