Things to consider before making decision

If you are searching for a wall-mounted electric fireplace that will meet your requirements, there are a number of factors that you should take into consideration. Here are some of the factors to consider.

1. The Style

Wall-mounted electric fireplaces are available in two styles: flush mounted or recessed. They both need brackets and hardware for installing. The flush mounted unit is installed flat against a wall surface and a recessed unit has a wall section cut out and sits in that opening. If you are not construction savvy, you might need a professional to help with the recessed mounting. The instruction manual discusses installation procedures with diagrams and easy to follow directions. An electrical contractor is not necessary since the unit plugs into a standard 120-Volt outlet. A wall-mounted fireplace liberates floor space for other furniture or items.

2. Heating Fan Vent

The heat delivery vents on wall-mounted electric fireplaces can be at either the top or the bottom. This would be a consideration when you purchase your fireplace. You will want to consider the furniture, plants, and other items in the floor space area below your wall-mounted fireplace. Some fireplaces can have a flat screen TV mounted above or below, so the vent location would be a viable concern. Usually there is a 3-foot gap between the two units.

3. Brand

An important consideration when purchasing an electric fireplace is to know that all products are not created equal. Branding is an image or idea for a specific product, a marketing strategy that can sometimes mislead. Research the products from well-known manufacturer’s that have a reputation for quality, features, and characteristics. Look for the best price, discounts, and special deals to save money, but not to sacrifice quality.

4. Efficiency

Analyze the relative costs and outcomes for your tangible benefits when researching electric fireplaces for the money you are going to spend. Consider any repair and maintenance costs once the warranty is up. Be sure the fireplace is energy efficient.

Final Thoughts

A fine collection of the top rated 10 wall-mounted electric fireplaces have been provided for your selection process, probably the most important thing you will do. Evaluate what will meet your needs in design, functionality, and price. You want to manage risk and ensure the best fireplace for your money. The electric fireplaces shown here will have many appealing features and good looks. They will add to your home or office décor providing an ambience, warmth, and charm similar to the wood fireplaces of days gone by, but without the mess, combustion, and environmental impact.

Read what customers are saying in their reviews. What are the pros and cons stated that would influence your choices? Do comparable shopping and you will be satisfied with your new electric wall-mounted fireplace purchase.

  1. We would like to buy one of these to install on a wall under two windows in our bedroom. Right in front of the unit would be a treadmill. Is there a model that would work best for this kind of set up? We don’t really have a choice in where it would go in our bedroom, and the treadmill doesn’t really have another place to go either!

    Thanks,
