There are few things better than curling up next to a fireplace on a chilly winter day in Ottawa. However, not everyone is able to install a wood burning or gas fireplace—particularly those that live in condos or apartments. Fortunately, there is an alternative—electric fireplaces!
Electric fireplaces just have to be plugged into a normal electrical socket to work—making them very easy to install. There is no demolition, construction or permits required to install, which makes them a perfect option for those living in an apartment or condo. Additionally, even if you rent, you can still have the benefit of a fireplace without permanently altering the living space.
Yearly maintenance for electric fireplaces consists of visually inspecting the unit for damage and cleaning off dust and debris. With an electric fireplace, you are able to have the warmth of a traditional fireplace on-demand without any annual cleaning or inspections.
A major advantage to electric fireplaces is that they are affordable. There are a number of different electric fireplaces available to suit any budget and style!
Often there are strict rules about what can be installed in an apartment or condo because of safety concerns. Since electric fireplaces are extremely safe, they are usually welcomed in apartments and other high rises.
Everyone should be able to enjoy a fire during the cold, harsh Ottawa winters. Just because you live in a condo or apartment doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy the tranquility and warmth of a fireplace. Electric fireplaces are a perfect option for those living in condos and apartments around Ottawa.
At Harding The Fireplace, we have over 4,500 square feet of retail showroom space devoted to fireplaces and BBQs.
