Heating elements are an essential component of all electric fireplaces that utilize fan heaters to produce heat.

In order for an electric fireplace to generate supplementary heat to compliment the flames, it needs a form of integrated heater. The majority of electric fireplaces have a built-in fan forced heater that uses both a blower and heating element to warm up the air within the room.

So what is a heating element for electric fireplaces?

The heating element is one of the main components found as part of a fan forced heating system located inside an electric fireplace. The heating element will typically be found in front of the blower and will warm up the air as it passes through the fireplace and out the front of the unit.
