About Electric Fire Inserts
An electric fire insert can breathe new life into a room and completely change its character. Electric fire inserts are particularly useful where an old coal fire grate has been removed and the remaining space is currently occupied by some ornament or other display.
The fire insert will lend a new atmosphere to the room and can also have the practical application of providing considerable warmth if needed.
Today?s electric fire inserts are very different from those of the past. Gone are the bare electric elements and plastic coal once so familiar, now being replaced by LED lighting effects and electric heaters.
A wide selection of electric fire inserts is available in different price ranges, according to the facilities offered.
As well as basic electric fire inserts, whole sets can be bought which include a fire surround and even authentic granite hearths. Very often, the surround will incorporate a practical and usable mantelpiece.
Electric fire inserts usually have their own particular flame effect system but inserts are also available which can incorporate gas flame effects with lava coal, the actual heat being produced by the electric fire.
Inserts often have different settings which enable the flame effects to be displayed without the heating being switched on. When the heating is used, heat output is normally a maximum of 2kW.
Many different designs of electric fire insert are available, both of modern and traditional design. All are reasonably efficient and easy to fit, provided measurements have been taken correctly.
