Electric fires have been continually increasing in popularity for many years now, and we can see why! There are so many benefits to making this investment for your home, some of which you may not have even thought of! Although spring may not be the time when you most need an electric fire, investing now could save you a pretty penny and a lot of hassle in the long run! Here are just a few of the main benefits of one of these fireplaces:
1. Cost saving
Aside from the initial outlay of an electric fire, it is often a great way to cut down on heating costs to save you a penny or two. This will of course depend on the output and size of your electric fire, but 9 times out of ten it will cut down your costs. Another factor in how they can save you money is that rather than switching the central heating on to warm up your entire home (which is a very costly practice), you can simply pop the fire on in the one room that you need heating!
All of our electric fires are 100% efficient, which means that it will help to improve the overall energy efficiency of your home. This means that no heat is wasted; it is blown directly into the room and will heat the air in no time! The energy saving light bulbs used to generate the flame effect further reduce running costs and energy efficiency.
3. Increase property value
The addition of an electric fire can actually increase the value and saleability of your home. This works both from a psychological point of view as well as from a property point of view. A fireplace can really tie a room together, and as the living room is thought to be the ‘heart of the home’, adding value to this room could be the make or break factor if you are looking to sell.
You cannot deny the wonderful aesthetic that a fire gives. With the warming glow - which on an electric fire is available without the heat option so you can enjoy the flickering flames all year around – and the modern finish, you can be sure that this will fit seamlessly into any room. There are a wide variety of styles available, so we’re sure that you will find a fire to fit your exacting needs and meld perfectly into the room’s aesthetic.
Ok, so this may be an obvious feature, but the warmth is one of the biggest and best benefits. These fires can be fitted into almost any room, be it the living room or bedroom, and therefore have the option to bring heat to the entirety of your home!
