Likewise, how does an electric fireplace flame work?
Electric fireplaces work by drawing in cool air, heating it internally using a heating coil and gently forcing the warmed air back out into the room by way of a fan. As a result, electric fireplaces can provide a flame without heat so that it can be enjoyed throughout the year.
One may also ask, are electric fireplaces tacky? A- Not anymore! When electric fireplaces were first released they were visibly cheap and had obviously fake flame effects. Modern electric fireplaces such as the Regency Skope series are specifically designed to suit any modern home and offer realistic 3-dimensional displays.

How much will an electric fireplace raise my electric bill?
