It seems silly not to post about the benefits of our electric heating elements more often. Rather than give an overview of our entire selection, you may have noticed our blog posts focus mainly on single product types. If you’re standing on the fence wondering if you should commit to an electric fireplace or stove, allow us to help you become 100 percent pro-electric with just five simple reasons. 

  1. Environmentally friendly:

Compared to its wood burning and gas-powered counterparts, an electric heater or fireplace requires less energy and materials to produce heat. Think about it: no wood, no gas can, just nice, clean electricity. 

By purchasing an electric heating element, you’re doing more than just selecting a quiet and efficient heating element for your home—you’re pledging to help the environment by refusing to burn natural resources and emitting the harmful gasses into the air.


  1. Minimal installation required:

A traditional fireplace involves an immense amount of planning and building to achieve the perfect look. You’ll need to plan the perfect location, install a chimney, and then watch as gaping hole was placed in your once pristine wall. What’s more, after all of that hassle, you would be forced to continuously clean every time you used it. 

An electric fireplace has a hassle-free selection and installation process. Our online consultants are readily available to help talk you through every step. After you decide on the perfect heating element, we can have it delivered to you within 24 hours. With simple directions and on-call support, we guarantee the process will remain stress-free.

  1. Cost effective:

One of the worst feelings in the world is knowing your well-earned money was wasted. Even more agonizing? Knowing you could have prevented it.

Research shows up to 50 percent of the heat energy from traditional or gas powered heaters and fireplaces are lost as they are absorbed into the atmosphere. Electric heaters, however, ensure little to no energy is wasted as the electric energy is converted directly into a heat source.

In addition, electric-powered heaters do not need additional materials to run properly. Do you really want to run to the store just for some logs in the middle of winter? Plug in your heater directly to a wall outlet without worrying about running around town spending more money.

  1. Multiuse:

At Electric Fireplaces Direct, we understand how important it is for your home to reflect your personal tastes. That’s why we offer an array of electric heaters in several different styles and colors. 

With 12 manufacturers to select from and hundreds of styles to choose, we make sure our customers have a product that fits perfectly into their homes.

  1. Easy-to-use 

One word: outlet. 

That’s it. That’s all you need to begin using your electric heater or fireplace. 

After collecting the firewood, starting a fire, and fervently praying for the room to warm up to a comfortable temperature in less than an hour, you’ll be too tired to fully enjoy your fireplace. 

Meanwhile, your next door neighbor with the electric heater needs only to plug in the cord, flick the switch, and select a setting. Within seconds, your neighbor has achieved what you spent an hour doing.

It’s a simple decision, really. Commit to an electric heating element today.
