As Cooler Weather Returns, Twin-Star International Turns Up the Heat on Preventing House Fires

Delray Beach, Florida, December 10, 2015 – Days are quickly turning cooler, which means the use of home heating appliances will be increasing, along with the number of home fires. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), in 2014, there was a home fire every 85 seconds, equaling 494,000 home fires that caused 3,275 deaths, 15,775 injuries and $9.8 billion in property damage. Twin-Star International’s goal is to help prevent electrical house fires by offering safe products for home heating.

Helping prevent electrical fires for years, Twin-Star International puts emphasis on making their products as safe as possible. With brands like Duraflame and PowerHeat, Twin-Star has thought of several innovative ways to allow their consumers to feel safe while using their products, like the Safer Plug, which is a patent pending technology that’s built-in to their product plugs that monitors the temperature of the plug and shuts off the appliance if it detects an unsafe rise in temperature.

Twin-Star’s electric heater brands, Duraflame and PowerHeat, offer a cool-to-the-touch feature making their products safe for operation around kids and pets. Some of their electric space heaters also offer a tip-over protection switch that turns the products off if they fall over. In addition, Twin-Star integrates programmable timers into some of their products that can shut off the heater when you choose.

Twin-Star is not only dedicated to keeping consumers safe, they also offer a great range of products to keep consumers warm. Duraflame and PowerHeat brands offer infrared heating technology, which has been independently lab tested and proven to warm rooms up to 1,000 sq. ft. Infrared heat helps to maintain the natural humidity within the air, resulting in moist, comfortable heat without drying out the room’s air. In addition, the ability to zone heat allows consumers to only heat the room they are in, allowing for savings on electric bills. Turning down the thermostat by 10 degrees during the fall & winter season and running an alternative heat source in the rooms you use most can save up to 10% on your energy bill.

Are You Prepared for Winter 2016?

ClassicFlame infrared electric fireplaces warm up your winter

Delray Beach, Florida, December 10, 2015 – According to the calendar, winter is not officially here yet- but no one told Mother Nature. The cold and snowy weather that The Farmer’s Almanac and others have predicted has already started. Between the El Nino’s moisture and the Polar Vortex’s cold arctic air, this is winter is predicted to be another cold and snowy one for most of the country. ClassicFlame is prepared, are you?

ClassicFlame electric fireplaces look and feel like traditional fireplaces but are much more energy efficient, environmentally friendly and easy to use in any room. They use energy-efficient LEDs to create their realistic flame effect. The infrared electric fireplaces use infrared quartz heating elements to warm rooms up to 1,000 sq. ft. There are no standing pilot lights burning or fuels giving off monoxide emissions. They are safe to use around children and pets, as the ClassicFlame electric fireplace inserts always remain cool to the touch. All infrared electric fireplaces from ClassicFlame offer over heat protection as a safety feature, using the patent-pending Safer Plug™. Safer Plug™ continuously monitors the temperature of the plug and will turn off the heater or electric fireplace if it detects an unsafe rise in temperature to prevent electrical fires- keeping you and your family safe while using ClassicFlame products.

The Spectrafire realistic flame effect with burning logs and glowing ember beds are created with LED lights, which last longer and use less energy than incandescent light bulbs. ClassicFlame also uses a remote control that allows you to control the brightness and color of the flame and some come equipped a sleep timer.

Just plug it into any standard 120 volt outlet and turn it on. They can be easily moved from room to room, yet have the look of a custom-built fireplace.

ClassicFlame electric fireplaces are also available in space-saving, ergonomic home entertainment consoles that include space for media components and flat-screen TVs.
