Electric fireplaces are much safer than traditional fireplaces when in operation. Because the heating elements are protected and contained within the unit, the exterior surfaces of the fireplace remain cool to the touch. This makes electric fireplaces a much safer bet around small children and pets. Most LED fireplaces also offer a self-timer syst3em that shuts down the unit after a set period of time. No worries about leaving it on while falling asleep, it will shut off by itself.

If you want, it is possible to install some units directly into the wall for a custom-built look.
