Electric Fireplaces: 3 Ways They Can Make Life Better in 2020

Another new year is here, which means it’s time to evaluate last year and plan for an even brighter future. Maybe your goals for the New Year center on creating the home of your dreams? If yes, 2020 can be the year when you finally remake your living space and truly love every room. Helping people achieve this goal is what makes us tick at Twin Star Home®, so we’re sharing one of our best tips for beginning your home décor revitalization project: start by adding an electric fireplace.

Here are the top three reasons why an electric fireplace will make your life better in the new year.


1.     Elevate the Look of Your Home Décor

No matter what your personal style is, an electric fireplace offers an eye-catching focal point for your living space. Thanks to innovative technology like the patent pending 3D Flame® Effect from ClassicFlame®, the market leader in electric fireplaces, you can now experience ultra-realistic-looking flames, making it easy to enjoy that soothing, flickering light that you love about a traditional fireplace.

If you want the comfortable, at-ease feeling of modern farmhouse style, consider a wall mantel. A mantel adds a classic look and a place to display favorite items – from knick-knacks to books or family photos. Models like the Sedalia Electric Fireplace (shown below), provide the canvas on which you’ll paint your masterpiece with your other home décor.

For those who love a truly modern look, a wall-mounted option, like the Roven Wall Mounted Electric Fireplace, can help create a clean, almost spa-like atmosphere in your home that will help you melt your stress away on a daily basis. Wall-mounted styles are also ideal if you have ideas for custom-built shelving in mind.

Professionals like Rachel Moriarty love the design flexibility of an electric fireplace. This San Diego-based interior designer and brand ambassador for the Design Network has been featured in HGTV magazine. AND she loves this idea for home design.

“One of the things I love about electric fireplaces is that you can create a whole room around them,” Moriarty said. “You can do it for any style from coastal to modern, from retro to industrial. And I just love all of the versatility that offers a designer.”


2.     Incorporate “Green” Supplemental Heat

Electric fireplaces improve your décor, but they’re also an energy-efficient way to keep your most-used rooms more comfortable. Instead of turning up the thermostat for your entire home, set it lower and add heat when you need it. This allows you to create a supplemental zone heating strategy that makes living spaces toastier and reduces overall energy use. Electric fireplaces (like the one pictured below) use a lot less energy and fuel than wood-burning fireplaces or natural gas fireplaces while providing the same welcome warmth. And since an electric fireplace doesn’t come with the indoor air quality issues or maintenance of a wood-burning fireplace, it’s a much cleaner, environmentally friendly alternative. If living a “greener” lifestyle is on your list of resolutions, an electric fireplace can help.

 3.     An Electric Fireplace Can Help You Cut Your Energy Costs

Logically, if you’re using less energy to heat your home, you probably won’t be paying as much either. What you’ll save depends on quite a few factors, including the size of your home, the price you pay for electricity, what you pay to fuel your whole-home heating system, and more. But generally, a supplemental zone heating strategy including an electric fireplace is a good way to cut costs. Lowering the overall temperature of your home by 10-15 degrees and heating only the room you’re in, can help save up to 15% on energy bills. It’s an idea that can help you live “greener” and put extra cash in your pocket at the same time. And that’s more money for gym memberships, trips to the spa, rock climbing adventures, or whatever else makes you smile.

And the ambiance that comes from three-sided views of dancing flames (like you can get with the Danyell Electric Fireplace at Wayfair pictured below) is a bonus beyond saving money and energy.
