You know that electric fireplaces are attractively designed, affordable and energy saving but did you also know that they can be good for your health?

One of our customers tweeted us that she bought an electric fireplace for a very unique reason - to help keep her bedroom warm to fight the chills and aches from chemotherapy and lupus, which got us thinking. How else are electric fireplaces good for your health?

Some Cleanse the Air

Got allergies? Select Dimplex models come with their patented Purifire technology, which cleanses the air as it works. Set as a background process to work with or without heat, you won’t even notice the gentle hum that circulates the air 4 times an hour. Removing dust, mold, spores, pollen, dander, and other particulates from their room, you can put the Benadryl away because it has an MERV rating of over 10, filtering out particles as small as 1 micron (1/25,000 of an inch). If you want to know how tiny that really is, the human eye can only see debris and dust that is approximately 25 microns in size. The best part? You’ll only need to wash or replace the filter once a year for easy maintenance.

Maintain Humidity Levels

If you have sensitive skin, you may notice that a humidifier makes you feel more comfortable. Our Power Heat infrared heaters by Duraflame provide softer, moist air that is circulated by the room’s existing humidity. Why does humidity matter? For a number of reasons - moist air helps sooth dry skin, relieve sinuses and keep your nasal passages clear so you can sleep and breath easier.

General Warmth and Comfort

If you’ve ever been sick or under the weather, you know that getting the chills is often an inevitable side effect. There’s nothing more soothing than cozying up with a steaming beverage next to a warm fire to help alleviate your teeth chattering, blanket hugging aches. With our wall-mounted electric fireplaces, you won’t even have to get up from bed– it’s all controlled by remote. So as you’re flipping through the daytime TV, you can change the heat and flame settings as your body temperature fluctuates.
