The National Safety Council has named June National Safety Month and the dedicated team of customer care, marketing, and products experts from ElectricFireplacesDirect thought it would be a good time to remind you about the safety and ease of use of electric fireplaces. A standard outlet is all that you need to power an electric fireplace. There is no gas fitting, venting, chimney, or masonry work needed making installation quick and easy.

Electric fireplace heaters can provide up to 10,000 BTUs of heat without the fumes associated with gas fireplaces or the smell of burning wood, which can stay in your house for days.

Many people enjoy the aroma and heat of burning wood; however, individuals with allergies can experience trouble breathing and smoke may release harmful chemicals like carbon monoxide.

Smoke inhalation has also been known to cause coughing or hoarseness, chest pains, headaches, nausea, and eye, throat and nose irritation if exposed for prolonged periods of time. With electric heaters, you can take advantage of the heat and ambience of a fireplace without all the negative side effects of wood burning.

Smoke may permanently damage your lungs and cause breathing problems such as shortness of breath, which could in extreme circumstances, lead to respiratory failure.

Electric fireplaces, whether they are independent plug in units or log inserts, are an excellent way to add ambiance to your home without the mess associated with gas or wood burning devices.

They also allow individuals with allergies the comfort of a traditional fireplace without the smoke that can cause them respiratory distress. People with pets and small children can rest assured no tiny hands or tails may accidentally make their way into the flames causing accidents, burning or worse.

They are inexpensive to operate, can fit in any room, and are wonderful additions to a variety of lifestyles.
