Plug and Play Electric Fireplaces: Ambiance in a Heartbeat

In Ambiance, Fireplaces by JHCadminLeave a Comment

Flickering firelight instantly creates warmth and ambiance. Electric fireplaces make instant ambiance possible in rooms where you wouldn’t expect to find fireplaces, such as kitchens, bathrooms and home offices.

The nice thing about electric fireplace inserts is that no venting is required; you simply plug and play. Remote controls let you manage the fire from afar. Some fireplaces even play music from hand-held and streaming audio devices.

Let’s take a closer look at three electric fireplace inserts and three electric linear fireplaces, all manufactured locally in Mukilteo, WA by our friends at Fireplace Xtrordinair (FPX).

Electric Linear Fireplaces

Linear fireplaces create a focal point in a living room, dining room, bedroom or den because they offer a wide fire viewing area. These versatile electric fireplaces harmonize well with almost any kind of décor and can be recessed into a wall or mounted.

51 EF Electric Fireplace

The 51EF Electric Linear Fireplace offers a large, linear fire viewing area surrounded by a sleek black 21 inch tall glass panel that compliments its unique flame effect.

The 51EF features colored perimeter accent lighting that encompasses the unit and is lit from behind the black glass panel. The accent lighting can be adjusted to multiple color settings and gives off a radiant glow.

The 51EF can be mounted on any wall or recessed into any wall. A 1,500 watt heater provides supplemental warmth and helps heat up the room.

With a massive 103 inches of fire viewing area, the 115EF offers the greatest amount of fire view of any electric fireplace. The long row of dancing flames creates a dramatic focal point in any large room, especially when illuminated by the glow of its perimeter accent lighting.

Despite its extra-large size, the unit has a depth of only 5 ½ inches so it can easily fit flush into any wall for a finished look. This electric fireplace features a 1,500 watt heater that adds supplemental warmth to the room and creates a comforting ambiance.
