The operation of an electric fire with heating in a nutshell
The atmosphere of real fire, pleasantly heating the room, no emissions and stoking up with just the push of a button; we are talking about the electric fire. Perhaps you have never seen one in real life, or even heard of an electric fire with heating, so we would like to explain how an electric fire with heating works.
A fire powered by electricity
An electric fire works on electricity. Just plug it in and press a button to switch on the electric fire and the 'flames' start dancing. When the electric fire is on, this does not necessarily mean it is heating. You operate the fire's heating element separately from the flames. This allows you to regulate not only the atmosphere, but also the heat that the fire gives.
No combustion, but atmosphere and warmth
The fire runs on electricity and does not burn. So what you see are not real flames, but a projection of flames. The heat you feel comes from a heating element. Electricity generates the heat in the heating element and a fan blows this into the room, making it feel warmer. The electric fire, unlike a gas and wood fire, does not emit radiant heat. Raising the temperature in the room, an electric fire cannot do that, but the heat from the fire does make it feel warmer.
