How a decorative fake fireplace works
The decorative fake fireplace, also known as the “electric fireplace”, bears witness to the progress of our society. From now on, you can heat up without lighting a fire, while enjoying the warm visuals that we love so much. Who hasn’t dreamed of having a fireplace in their living room where they could sit comfortably with a good book? However, not everyone can heat with wood… So we had to invent the fake decorative fireplace! It has the particularity of running on electricity, no need to store wood logs and sweep the fireplace
The fake electric fireplace can be easily plugged into a socket. Since it has primarily a decorative function, this fireplace will not be sufficient to adequately heat an interior in winter, for example. It should be kept in mind that it is more of a backup heater than a primary heat source.
The decorative fireplace produces a visual of flames, more or less realistic depending on the model. It is also possible to separate the heating function from the decorative function. In this way, the fireplace can be operated without radiating heat.
The advantages of installing an electric fireplace
There are more advantages to installing a decorative faux fireplace than you might think. In short, it beautifies your interior without the disadvantages of the classic fireplace.
