Review of 12 types of the best electric fireplaces
More and more consumers are paying attention to electric fireplaces. In order for the device to serve for a long time and perform its tasks, various parameters must be taken into account when choosing.

Structurally, the fireplace is divided into a portal and a hearth – removable or built-in.
Depending on the purpose and functions, electric fireplaces are usually divided into:
- Portable (mini-stove).
- Corner. Option for small spaces.
- Mounted. They look like a decoration in the form of a live fire.
- Wall. Made in the classic style of wood-burning fireplaces.
- Separate (central, island).
- Embedded. Save space.
Purpose and functions
In most cases, fireplaces have three main modes:
- full heating power and fire simulation;
- half heating power and fire simulation;
- imitation of fire without heating.
In devices, there is often a built-in thermostat that maintains the same temperature throughout the room.
There are fireplaces with additional functions, they allow you to change the brightness of the backlight, use different colors, set the sound.
