When helping customers choose a fireplace, there are many important factors to consider— efficiency, safety, cost, ease-of-use, maintenance, etc. There is only one category of fireplaces that can hit all of these marks plus more–Electric Fireplaces.

GreatCo., a division of The Outdoor GreatRoom Company, produces several styles of efficient electric fireplaces to choose from. The cost to install and use an electric fireplace is at least four times less than a gas insert or linear fireplace and there is minimal maintenance compared to a wood-burning fireplace. Many aspects and features of an electric fireplace are there to save money and time.

• There is no gas or fuel line required, just an electrical outlet for standard 110 volts.
• There is no venting or chimney required— saving the time to maintain and the cost to install and keep up.
• Smoke, soot, and residue from burning wood or gas are not a problem with an electric fireplace, saving time.
• There is no annual service plan required and the daily operating cost is much less than a gas fireplace—only a penny per 24 hours with flame and backlighting and 9 to 18 cents per hour with the heat on.

A GreatCo. Electric fireplace can be used without the heat on.

Because a GreatCo. Electric fireplace can be used without the heat on; it is the perfect accent to a home no matter the season or temperature outside. These fireplaces are designed with LED lighting technology to run 12 months out of the year efficiently, quietly, and safely. No matter if a linear wall mounted fireplace or a fireplace insert is used, it can be easily moved from room to room without expense. Installation happens in minutes, not hours or days, and can be done without a professional (again saving money and time.)

GreatCo. Gallery Electric Fireplaces are also safe to use. They are great when adding warmth and heat to a room, but will stay cool to the touch. This safety feature is great for children, pets, and peace of mind. GreatCo. also has each fireplace tested and certified by the Canadian Standards Association for safety.

Whether it be updating an existing wood-burning fireplace, or adding a fireplace to any room of the house, electric is the fireplace of choice. GreatCo. Gallery Electric Fireplaces are expertly designed and tested for safety, making them the perfect addition to any space.
