They are easy to install and comes in a variety of designs, from traditional style to more contemporary silhouettes. It does not, however, provide as much heat as gas or wood-burning fireplaces, but are easier to install, odorless and more environmentally-friendly
- Electric fireplace – the most effective and cost-efficient type of fireplace currently on the market. They are easy to install, remote-controlled and has a variety of fire effects to choose from
