Advantages of an electric fireplace

Easy to maintain

Forget about the maintenance that a traditional fireplace requires! With a traditional fireplace, you first had to fetch wood. Then you had to manage to light a fire. Once the fire was lit, you had to keep it going. Finally, you had to clean the chimney, which of course had produced smoke, ash scattered across the room and other unpleasantness. Let’s not even talk about the chore of having a chimney sweep come several times a year, which was also expensive. With an electric fireplace, there’s no need for all that! The maintenance of an electric fireplace is really very simple. Simply clean the exterior with a soft cloth and white vinegar.

Easy to install

The electric fireplace is very easy to install and does not require any prior preparation. Unlike a conventional fireplace, it does not need a flue. All you need is an electrical outlet and a choice of location.

Economic

Heating with an electric fireplace can be economical. All you need is a little electricity. You don’t have to do any heavy, expensive work to install it. No more buying wood and coal, no more sweeping your chimney: an electric fireplace has no flue. What’s more, when you buy your fireplace from Chemin’Arte, you are investing in a quality product that will last over time. All our electric fireplaces are guaranteed for 2 years.
