There is something special about fireplaces. Traditional and reliable, they have a timeless capacity to create a feeling of cosiness. Beyond that, as research has shown, simply being in the presence of an open fire – contemplating its flames and accompanying sounds – can even lower your blood pressure.
That said, fireplaces are not without their negatives. While the traditional variety of wood burning stove can be messy and higher maintenance, more modern options like gas have their own pros and cons. Although they look great and are highly efficient, there is a need for gas lines, flueing, and so on which isn’t always practical.
In this context, the latest generation of electric fires represent a simpler, greener alternative. Available in a range of types, including 2D and 3D systems and even heat-free models, there is something suitable for most applications.
In this session, we explain why this is the case. Outlining the various options available, their installation requirements and more, we explain how to ensure you find the right electric fire for your next project.
