Electric fireplaces don’t produce real flames and generate heat artificially, and so they can be more flexible in where they can be located in your home compared to other types of fireplace.

Many electric fireplaces are also designed to imitate other types of fireplace, such as open wood fireplaces and wood burning stoves.

Types of electric fireplaces include:

  • Electric fireplace stoves
  • Electric fireplace log sets
  • Built-in electric fireplaces
  • Electric fireplace inserts
  • Wall-mounted or recessed electric fireplaces
  • Electric fireplace TV stands
  • Electric fireplace mantels

The versatility of electric fireplace allows them to be placed inside or built into existing fireplaces, be freestanding where an electrical outlet is located nearby, or even built into mantels, entertainment centers or walls.
