You may have seen some very cool looking fireplace hanging in a magazine design spread or in a hip downtown bar. If it was sleek and modern, chances are it was a Modern Flames electric fireplace. The company, based in Phoenix, Arizona, pioneered the contemporary linear electric fireplace in 2008. Since they manufacture their own products rather than outsource them, you can be assured that the quality control and craftsmanship matches the high end design.
Their sleek, linear line is popular with designers, builders and architects for use in both residential and commercial settings. Modern Flame electric fireplaces come in a variety of styles – from contemporary to traditional. They also come in a variety of sizes – rectangular to square – so you can choose the model that will best fit your room. They also make fireplace inserts which can easily be installed in any fireplace opening. The electrical units are more economical than gas inserts, and safer- since there are no gas emissions. The screen also stays cool to the touch, making it a safer choice for homes with children or pets.
The electric fireplace units either come with the reflective glass or richly detailed LED Canyon Juniper Logs options. These electric fireplaces look realistic since they produce lifelike flames that are refracted in a 3 dimensional pattern with yellow and orange hues.
Electric fireplaces are easy to operate and you can choose light, heat or both – making them perfect for year round use. They are portable, easy to install and inexpensive to operate. Plus, they are simple to maintain – no cleaning up ash or chopping new wood!
With an electric fireplace, you can take advantage of zone heating. Since they can be installed in any room, you can chose where you place them and comfortably heat only the rooms that are actively use. This can save energy and money since you can turn your central air down to more modest levels for the rest of the house. Electric fireplaces cost very little to run, averaging about 8 to 12 cents an hour or approximately $25 a year. Plus, they add visual appeal and ambience – warming up any room in the home.
