What is an Electric Fireplace Insert & How Does it Work?

An electric insert is like a traditional fireplace but uses light emitting diodes (LEDs) to simulate a natural fire-burning experience. As a result, there is no smoke and zero emissions. Since there is no combustion process, electric fireplaces are also a safer option. An electric fireplace produces heat like a space heater. It draws in the cool air into an electric or infrared heating coil. A fan inside the unit distributes warm air into your living space. Some electric fireplaces also have crackling sounds that give you the ambiance of a wood fire experience without the smoke, soot, creosote, or CO2 gas.

Do Electric Fireplaces Require a Vent?

Since an electric fireplace insert uses a heating coil or infrared technology instead of combustion to produce heat, it doesn't have real flames. Therefore, it doesn't need a chimney or vent to remove smoke and fumes like a gas or wood-burning fireplace.

Flame Viewing Without Heat

One of the most significant advantages of an electric fireplace insert is that with its flame-only viewing feature, you can have an incredible flame viewing experience without the heat, so you can enjoy a warm and inviting fire-burning experience all year.

Simple to Install, Operate, and Maintain

Electric fireplace inserts install directly inside the opening of your existing masonry fireplace. Simply flipping a switch or pressing a button on a remote allows you to turn on the fireplace and control the flames and heat output. No maintenance is required except for occasionally wiping away any dust or dirt particles.
