Why An Electric Fireplace Might Be Your Perfect Choice

A home is meant to be a cozy place where you can lay down and comfortably retire from the worries of the world. A good fireplace is absolutely essential to set the stage for that cozy ambiance, but homeowners who want new fireplaces face quite a few choices. The biggest of these concerns is probably what kind of fireplace to get. Should they choose a gas or electric fireplace?

Electric fireplaces have so many convenient and desirable features, that they absolutely deserve your time and consideration. Depending on your needs, they may actually be the perfect choice for you.

Electric Fireplaces

Amantii Electric Fireplace Insert

If you live around Peterborough or the Kawartha Lakes region, The Original Flame can hook up your home with the perfect fireplace you’ve always dreamed of. But before we show you what we can do for you, let’s have a look at some of the profound advantages of keeping a contemporary electric fireplace at home.


Cost is an extremely practical and down-to-earth consideration that can never be ignored. Gas fireplaces are large and cumbersome and can be extremely costly to install. But if you decide to go electric and install an electric fireplace insert instead, you can save a significant amount of money.

A contemporary electric fireplace can be placed almost anywhere in your home where you find it convenient to have one. Electric fireplace inserts of virtually any size can simply be mounted on the wall, helping you keep the room warm through even the most frigid winters.

Installation isn’t the only area where going electric can save you money. Amantii electric fireplaces from The Original Flame also consume significantly less energy than gas fireplaces do. Over time, those energy savings will really add up.


If you aren’t careful, gas and traditional wood-burning fireplaces can expose you and your home to certain hazards. Ash and smoke can easily flood your room if you don’t perform regular and extremely careful maintenance. And of course, there’s the ever-present danger that a fire might inadvertently start.

By contrast, if you go electric, you’ll be able to enjoy both the soothing warmth of a fireplace and the sight of a realistic display of burning fire without any of the dangers. There’s no real fire, so there’s no danger of anything catching ablaze. There isn’t any ash or smoke either.

Longevity and Ease of Maintenance

Because wood fireplaces spew out so much ash, the stuff needs to be periodically cleaned out, not only for safety reasons but just to ensure that nothing becomes clogged and that the fireplace continues functioning. You won’t just need to clean soot from the main burning area but from the chimney as well. Plus, wood fireplaces can’t function unless you’re prepared to lug and chop a significant amount of wood all of the time. Altogether, this comes to quite a bit of work.

Essentially none of this applies to electric models. The only cleaning required is an occasional wipe of the fire display screen with some cleaner or a damp cloth. And since there’s no backbreaking maintenance involved, you can be confident that if you choose to go electric, your model will last for years and years.

Beauty and Versatility

Fireplaces should make it feel good to be in your home, but if they can make a room come alive and look fantastic, that’s even better

You’ll have customization options galore if you decide to heat your home with an electrical fireplace. Size, shape, color, flame display style, the area where the fireplace can be mounted or configured — all of these things and more are open to your discretion. You can either mount the fireplace right onto just the right wall or carve out some space in your drywall and fill it with the perfect insert. With so many ways to craft the perfect aesthetic, you’ll be able to fit your fireplace seamlessly into your home’s general décor and imbue it with that extra flair.
