Electric Fireplace Logs

A Guide To Electric Fireplace Logs

More and more people are turning to electric fireplaces today more than ever before. It makes sense when you consider the advantages that come with this type of fireplace.

  • Simple installation without having to tear into interior walls or build a chimney.

  • Easy to regulate – simply turn the unit on or off when needing heat.

  • No wood to cut, store and bring inside whenever you want a fire.

  • Safety – no burning embers or sparks flying out into the room.

While these are certainly good advantages for having an electric fireplace, the main objection over the years has always been with an electric fireplace log. They have often times looked cheap and worthless. Well, electric fireplace logs have come a long way from those days as you will see.

Today, electric logs are nearly life-like in appearance and simulate an actual wood burning log. They even have the crackling sounds just like a regular log does.

Electric fireplace logs come in several different types and styles including:

Crackling Electric Logs

This type of electric log can be made out of oak or other type of wood and features a unique mechanism that turns inside the log and gives off the crackling sounds. A light bulb helps to produce the orange glow of an actual fire.

Electric Log Heater

To produce the warmth you desire in your room you will need a log heater. This unit goes underneath the logs and puts out a good amount of heat for the average room.

The log heater also contains a built-in thermostat that allows you to control the temperature at all times.

Electric Fireplace Inserts

These are great for using in an existing fireplace. You simply put the unit inside your existing fireplace and you are good to go.

Electric fireplace logs can provide the comfort and relaxation of a regular wood burning fireplace. They are portable and can enhance the décor of any room. They make for a good option if you have wanted the look and feel of a real fireplace without the hassles or the mess that comes along with them.
