Renters are usually prohibited from making extreme structural changes to their apartments or condos. For this reason, electric fireplaces are the ideal solution for renters looking to add the heat or ambiance of a fireplace to their home. A fireplace that runs on electricity doesn`t require venting, chimneys, or the structural changes that would come with installing a traditional or gas fireplace. Corner electric fireplaces simply plug in to standard outlets. Plus, they are much safer and cleaner than wood-burning or gas fireplaces. Electricity-based fireplaces are a way for people to have a fireplace in their small space, and not lose their security deposit. There are no ashes, soot nor risk of sparks flying out and ruining the carpet. Fireplaces that run on electricity can heat a room up to 400 square feet, and are very cost-efficient. They are a great source of supplemental heat in the winter, and can be run without the heater for warmth and ambiance all year round. Those who live in a smaller space don`t have to go without a fireplace any longer - smaller and corner electric fireplaces are the perfect space-saving solution for any small living space.
Wood burning fireplaces contain all the smells and sounds associated with burning wood and depending on the area of the country wood can be burnt for free and be made to lower heating bills. Wood-burning fireplaces are not fun to clean as soot is extremely light and often able to spread right through the rear filter and into the house when vacuumed. A water-spray will effectively weigh down soot for slow shoveling with minimal mess. The fire in a wood burning fireplace must also be properly stacked to light a fire every time. Improperly stacked firewood without enough kindling will burn out so the fireplace must be watched and wood added to the fire as it is used. Burning wood does create dangerous fumes and smoke and a proper flue with a strong pull requiring a minimal height is necessary for safe home heating.
