3. Are there any disadvantages to an electric fire?
Most people’s expectations are that electric fires don’t have real flames. So, the main purpose of purchasing an electric fire is to safely add warmth and atmosphere to a room. DRU electric fires have been developed with this in mind.
Rather than consider the disadvantages of electric fires, we prefer to talk about the differences:
1. No real flames
Although the flame picture is just like the real thing, you will not find any real flames in an electric fire. Despite that, our technology has made it possible to give the fire a realistic look and feel.
2. No unwanted smell
Burning wood releases a distinctive smell that can be unpleasant, while an electric fire has no smell, which is also an advantage!
3. Works on electricity
If you have a power cut, you will not have realistic flames and a nice atmosphere. However, you can still temporarily switch to battery powered LED lights.
