Fire is indeed a very old discovery. It is used for warmth, to heat water for bathing and for cooking meat, vegetable and other food items. It can even be used to make hot drinks. Electric fireplaces are the most recent adaptation of the discovery of fire. When early man first learnt the art of making fire, his life and indeed our lives, changed forever. Early man huddled around the fire to gain warmth and to cook and in many respects fire is not all that different now.
Since this early time, we as a people, have evolved to the point where we now have electric fireplaces and electric stoves meaning that we don’t have to spend hours trying to start and stoke a fire. Rather it is done automatically for us.
The role of fire has changed a lot too. Kitchen stoves have become increasingly popular as they essentially provide the same heating and cooking capabilities as was the case for the cave dwellers all those millions of years ago. Once modern stoves were invented however, the fire became more refined and was split between living room and kitchen, with many abodes having both facilities in their homes.
With the advent of electricity, electric fireplaces and stoves are now at the most advanced they have ever been. For one thing, electric fireplaces don’t require a ventilation system like traditional fireplaces do and stoves have in built ventilation systems and even additional stove top ventilation fans. I would suggest to buy a Hunter stove because is highly energy efficient.
Because electric fireplaces and stoves run on electricity, it is easy to be able to control the amount of heat they give off for warming the room or cooking your dinner. All you need to do is just turn the settings up or down according to your needs.
The heat output from electric fireplaces and stoves is much more efficient than wood- burning or gas-burning ones because the output remains constant until such time as you change it or turn it off. With wood burning and gas burning fireplaces and stoves the heat can fluctuate and you have only minimal control. Electric fireplaces and stoves are much easier to maintain and clean as well. You’ll never have to chop up wood or scoop out ash or clear out the chimney. The only thing you’ll have to worry about is wiping out the fireplace at the beginning of each winter or wiping out the stove every couple of weeks to keep it free of spillages.
