Shopping Guide

When shopping for a fireplace with a media center, you are being provided with some useful tips to help you with your selection process. Having evaluated and reviewed the top brands and models available, we hope this guide will inspire you to make an informed decision. Happy shopping!

1. Storage Shelves

Electric fireplaces with storage shelves add a convenient place to store your cable box, media components, CDs, books, pictures, and decorations. Your fireplace provides heat, and flames, and your shelves hold everything that matters to you in one place for your convenience. When you purchase your fireplace media console, be sure it has everything for what you need. Contemporary units provide more shelve space, yet traditional styles also have ample shelf space for your specific storage needs.

2. Cabinet Space

Some fireplaces have wood tops and some have glass tops. Choose the one that you like for your home décor and function. The cabinet space is shielded from heat, since the firebox is not hot to begin with. Decide you storage needs and go from there with the many styles to choose from.

3. Firebox Options

The electric fireplace provides many traditional and contemporary designs from which to choose. The firebox has different faux flame appearances, such as a flickering and dancing flame while others have a more artificial appearance. Choose what fits your needs and complements your décor whether in a home, an apartment, school dorm, or an office. Choose from features from a standard log set in the typical firebox, or the contemporary firebox with its glass ember bed for the style of TV media console that matches your aesthetic distinctions. Some fireplaces have firebox interior faux bricks that look terrific.

4. Heating Considerations

Electric fireplaces have several heating systems for your specific requirements. One is a fan forced directional air system and it will heat 400-square feet. The other is an infrared heating system. Electric fireplaces evenly heat the room whichever system you choose. Circulated by the room’s humidity, the Infrared (IR) heat is absorbed by the heat exchanger and dispersed into the room with a quiet fan. It will support 1000-square feet with heat. If heating a large room is up for consideration, purchasing the IR system will be more effective. Most fireplaces do not use the IR system, yet it is worth mentioning for your space and heat considerations.

Final Thoughts

The Electric Fireplace Media Center is the place to browse for this specific unit type. It has plenty of storage for media components while providing great looks for your home. You will have an authentic flickering flame that can be controlled for brightness. It can be used yearly because it runs with or without heat while still generating flames. These units will enhance your décor and are visually appealing. Since they are cool to touch, children and pets will not be burned. Electric fireplaces run on electricity, therefore no combustible fuel goes into the environment. Everyone is going green in today’s society. Electricity is less expensive to run and in the final analysis, you save by not having to purchase wood logs, pay for expensive natural gas, or gas gel.

Take time to read customer reviews to learn what others have to say about their fireplace. Make some notes highlighting the pros and cons. Shop wisely by comparing your purchasing choices and you will never be disappointed.

  1. Dear Steven,

    I am looking to acquire a decent quality electric fireplace… thing is, I already have a nice quality TV stand and I just want the fireplace unit (effectively an “insert,” if you will). The dimensions I have to play with are approx. 49″W x 25″H x 14″D. Though not a professional finish carpenter, I have above average do-it-yourself skills, and would like to do my own faux-rock tiling around the perimeter of the unit to fill out the install. My basic question is, is there a safety issue with say the Dimplex wall-mount model DWF3651B (available at my local Lowe’s) which emanates heat from the top (vs the top FRONT) of the unit? I would like to take up most of the width of my available space when gutting the existing TV stand (I don’t need the vertical
