New and hot! The electric fire is on the rise. Perhaps you have heard of it, but don't know exactly what the pros and cons of electric fires are. We would like to take you through the main advantages and disadvantages of the electric fire so that you can make the right choice for a new fire.
The advantages of an electric fire
Easy to use, economical and fitting into any home; you might say that we have covered all the advantages of the electric fire, but nothing could be further from the truth! The electric fire has more:
No ignition and therefore no fumes, soot or other waste. This fire - apart from periodic replacement of parts - requires no maintenance! Because there is no combustion, the electric fire is also very safe.
The electric fire uses electricity as its energy source and therefore does not need a flue. All you need to consider when placing the fire is enough space and access to a power outlet.

- No authentic smell or flames
No combustion takes place when you use an electric fire. Therefore, there is no authentic smell which a wood-fired fire has. The flames are not real, but a projection that is almost indistinguishable from the real thing.
The fire needs power to create atmosphere and heat. Does the power go out? Then the fire won't work.
