I’ll admit to being impressed with our electric stoves. Leaving aside the running costs for a moment there are certain situations where the advantages of electric are notable.
Think electric where you can’t get permission to set up a proper fireplace with a flue. Then again, although many appliances comply with smokeless zone regulations you may wish to compare these with similar looking electric fireplaces.
First, an electric fireplace looks like a real glowing fire. Yet you don’t have to worry about flue gas. An artificial flue can be installed merely for effect. You don’t actually need to have a fireplace in home to have an electric stove. They can be set up against any normal wall and marked out with a nice rug. All you need is an electric power point.
Electric stoves are lighter in weight and easier to move. You could, for example, move them from room to room on a seasonal basis. You might also take them with you to another house.
Wherever you want your fire you simply plug it into the nearest electric power point and there you have heat. They can be switched on and off by remote control and when you come in you will have instant heat. You might keep one as a standby.
With electric there’s no need to worry about storing fuel. Of course the organic effect of a wood store may also be to your liking for décor, no one will know when they feel the heat. Finally, an electric fire will need no more than the usual dust clean that you give all of your furniture. Voila.
