Below we will list some benefits that a Modern Flames electric fireplace has on your personal environment as well as Mother Earths’.
Electric fireplaces are not only just as aesthetically pleasing as a real fire but its efficiency is cleaner and saves you money. It has been proven that electric fireplaces use less materials and energy than wood or gas fireplaces because it is electrically fueled, only needing one outlet, and is not fuel based. We use light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to produce the captivating appearance. LEDs have about 75,000 hours worth compared to the lifespan of about 2,000 hours of the obsolete bulb technology. LEDs also only draw 10% of the watts that would equal the same amount of light form an incandescent bulb.
Zone heating is a term used for only heating up the room or area that is being utilized. This way no energy or heat is wasted on empty rooms, and with no chimney needed electric fireplaces are ideal. You also have option of just enjoying the appearance of the fire when not needing heat.
Modern Emissions (or lack there of)
Electric fireplaces have the ability to look exactly like a fire burning and produce heat while zero gas, wood, or other resources are being burned. This fact makes it the greenest option available for a fireplace. Since there is no wood or gas combusting to result in a fire then there is zero smoke, gas, or pollution going into the atmosphere.
With an electric fireplace you never have to stress about carbon monoxide going into the atmosphere or your lungs. Carbon monoxide is very toxic and breathing in the fumes can result in injury or death. If a chimney hasn’t been cleaned properly the carbon monoxide can backup into your house. With an electric fireplace you never have to worry about a gas leak or smoke from a clogged chimney. Another perk with zero harmful fumes happening is that the ‘no burn days’ will never apply to you again.
