Is an electric fireplace expensive to run?
Electric fireplaces operate on a single electrical socket and cost about as much to run as a space heater. Depending on the cost of your electricity, they can keep you warm for pounds a year. Some of our manufacturers provide eco models which can keep your electricity bills even lower.
With most electric fireplaces, the flame effect can be used independently of the heat output, meaning they can be used all year round to create a cosy atmosphere without causing a strain on your energy costs.
What is the most efficient electric fire?
Since all the heat generated is used, electric fireplaces are typically more efficient than wood-burning fireplaces which lose heat through the chimney or flue. However, we also stock fireplaces with multiple heat settings and specific eco considerations to help keep your bills low and shrink your carbon footprint. For example, this Be Modern Wall Mounted Azonto model costs less than £4 per year (with only the flame effect being used).
Most of our manufacturers produce eco-friendly models so take a closer look at any fireplace that catches your eye for more information about its eco-performance.
Where should I place my electric fire?
If you want to create a focal point in your room that you, your family and your guests can enjoy, some of our inset fireplaces and fireplace stoves come with mantels and surrounds included to create a traditional fireplace look.
For a more modern feel, choose a wall-mounted electric fire that looks beautiful and elegant in any room. Or, for more freedom and flexibility, check out our freestanding fires and electric stoves that can be placed just about anywhere and operate on a single mains outlet.
Do electric fires heat up a room?
Electric fireplaces are not designed to be used as the sole heat source of a room and, in very large rooms, will not heat the entire room. Electric fireplaces are typically used alongside your radiators to provide a heating boost and create a warm, comfortable atmosphere.
However, in smaller rooms, you may find that your electric fireplace is all you need to heat your room, so take into consideration the size of your room and the size of the fireplace you intend to buy when considering how to heat your room.
How do I install an electric fireplace?
Our freestanding electric fireplaces and stoves are ready to be used as soon as they’re plugged in and don’t need to be installed at all. This is the best option if you have the floor space to place your fireplace or if your property doesn’t have a suitable wall to inset a fireplace.
If you choose an inset or wall-mounted fireplace model, you may need professional support with the installation. Radiance Fireplaces does not provide installation services, so we recommend our customers use Rated People to find a tradesperson in their local area to help them.
