  • The Benefits of Electric Fireplaces in New Home Construction
  • The benefits of electric fireplaces in new home construction

    1. 1. An electric fireplace insert is easy to install, requires no venting or gas line, and is an economical, flexible, and eye-catching addition to any home or office new build or remodel.
    2. 2. <ul><li>Enjoy the benefits of fire with or without heat. </li></ul><ul><li>120-volt connections that provide 4,600 BTS of heat to rooms approximately 400 square feet. </li></ul><ul><li>220-volt connections that double the amount of heat. </li></ul><ul><li>No vents, chimneys, or gas lines necessary. </li></ul><ul><li>No fumes, smoke, or ashes to clean up! </li></ul>
    3. 3. <ul><li>Electric fireplaces are easier and less expensive to install than traditional fireplaces and they provide the fireplace effect most buyers desire. </li></ul><ul><li>An electric fireplace insert offers environmental friendliness – much more so than wood and gas burning fireplaces. </li></ul><ul><li>You can give a room the feel of warmth from the moment you step inside with an electric fireplace insert. </li></ul><ul><li>Electric fireplaces offer beauty, balance, rhythm, harmony, proportion, and scale in a variety of styles, colors, and sizes. </li></ul>
    4. 4. <ul><li>Homeowners increasingly seek the benefits of environmentally friendly building and design. </li></ul><ul><li>A green home creates less waste and causes less environmental impact. </li></ul><ul><li>Because conventional fireplaces burn inefficiently, produce harmful smoke and fumes, and cause indoor air pollution, electric fireplaces excel in green design. </li></ul>
    5. 5. <ul><li>1. Builder acquires permit (a lengthy process). </li></ul><ul><li>2. Builder constructs a frame to house the gas unit and cuts a hole in the exterior wall to attach firestops, vents, and caps. </li></ul><ul><li>3. Builder connects the exterior and interior vent pipes and the termination cap. </li></ul><ul><li>4. Builder runs copper tube or steel pipe to the gas line, checks for gas leaks, and finally connects the unit to the electrical circuit and thermostat. </li></ul>Installing a gas fireplace can be costly for a builder, including:
    6. 6. <ul><li>Since installation for electric fireplaces doesn’t require permits, the first step is building a frame to house the unit. </li></ul><ul><li>Then it’s as simple as connecting the unit to the electrical circuit and thermostat. </li></ul><ul><li>That’s it! </li></ul><ul><li>More elaborate installations may also involve hanging drywall or laying brick or stone around the unit. </li></ul>
    7. 7. <ul><li>An electric fireplace insert provides a number of benefits for interior designers: </li></ul><ul><li>Balance and a focal point in a room. </li></ul><ul><li>Dancing flames that create visual excitement. </li></ul><ul><li>The relaxing restfulness associated with glowing embers. </li></ul><ul><li>Electric fireplaces anchor any room in a home because of the wide range of sizes and designs available. </li></ul>
    8. 8. <ul><li>Electric fireplaces are inexpensive for builders to install in any room, yet they still add value to the price of a home. </li></ul><ul><li>Designers have a simple way to provide a spectacular focal point that produces a realistic flame and soothing ambiance. </li></ul><ul><li>Electric fireplaces promote a healthier indoor environment because they don’t produce airborne particles that can aggravate allergies and health conditions or mold spores that can affect respiratory functions, making them ideal for architects designing environmentally friendly spaces. </li></ul>
    9. 9. <ul><li>Enjoy a fire without the side effects of a gas or wood burning fireplace. </li></ul><ul><li>100% energy efficiency. </li></ul><ul><li>No indoor or outdoor pollution. </li></ul><ul><li>Year round use as you can operate with or without heat. </li></ul><ul><li>Low operating costs of approximately .02¢ per hour without heat and .12¢ per hour with heat. </li></ul>
    10. 10. <ul><li>Electric fireplaces are attractive, practical alternatives to traditional fireplaces that offer builders, interior designers, and architects a number of exciting benefits. </li></ul><ul><li>Because of their beautiful glowing embers, realistic looking logs, and eco-friendliness, they are the perfect addition to any new space. </li></ul>
