Throughout autumn and winter a good heating system is essential, but gas and oil fired central heating, while they may heat our home, lacks a certain character and atmosphere. Many people prefer a fire, but that too comes with its own problems, lighting, cleaning, an adequate supply of fuel and time to heat up. A great alternative are electric fires, giving you the warmth and character of a fire but without the hassle. Instant heat as soon as you come home, without the need to arrange, light and continuously refuel. Technology has come a long way too, resulting in electric fires that are realistic and can provide the same cosy atmosphere.
A great selection of electric fires can be found online or in-store at The Fireplace Warehouse. They can provide excellent heat, but they also give you the option of turning on the flame effect only. Most come with 1 and 2kw heat output and they are all 100% efficient. Some models will also have a remote control for convenience and a dimmer switch. You can purchase just the electric fire or if you want to make a stand out feature you can purchase a beautifully designed electric fireplace suites. These suites incorporate the entire fireplace and they have some great modern designs, adding to the aesthetic appeal of your room also. You can choose from a variety of materials like marble or limestone, stone effect finishes and choose fireplaces with backlights and shelving areas. You could opt for a bowl effect fireplace or a more traditional hearth and they use real pebbles and logs for decoration. There is even a model that is fully portable, you can move it from room to room and just plug it in.
