Electric fireplaces offer the ambiance and warmth of a traditional fireplace, without the hassle of chopping wood, storing wood, cleaning up all of the ashes, drafts from chimney flues, and the heat (and money!) lost going up the chimney. With electric fireplaces, you don't have to worry about ventilation requirements or carbon monoxide detectors.
