The Benefits Of An Electric Fireplace

Many homeowners think that installing and maintaining a fireplace is an unaffordable luxury. What if you could get warmth and comfort on a budget? Installation and operation of an electric fireplace cost a fraction of wood-burning and gas alternatives. Read on to find out why an electric fireplace is a  perfect option for your home.


There are two main types of electric fireplaces: plug-in inserts and built-in inserts. Neither of these options requires any certification, and the installation process is typically quick, cheap and easy. 


Plug-in inserts 

These plug into standard outlets and are typically installed into a pre-existing mantel or mounted on a wall. As long as you have an outlet within range of your installation site. If not, an electrician can install one in no time. If you go with a wall mounted option, a handyman can mount it safely.


Built-in inserts.


These can be built into a mantel, an entertainment centre, or the wall. This option can heat a larger area and typically offers a sleeker look but is more expensive. A high-end built-in unit will cost between 800 and 900 dollars, which is still significantly less than wood and gas alternatives. To install a built-in fireplace, you’ll need the help of an electrician. A general contractor can also design a more complex wall unit for your fireplace, which we recommend if you plan on making it the focal point of your room.



Electric Fireplaces are Energy Efficient

Electric fireplaces are also a great way to lower your heating costs through supplemental heating. You can use electric fireplaces to heat specific high-traffic areas of your home without engaging your central heating system. This means come winter, you can turn down your thermostat and instead turn up your fireplace. A built-in model can heat an area of 800 square feet, and only costs between 7 and 13 cents per hour when running.



Low-Maintenance & Safe

One of the best things about an electric model is that they don’t produce soot, ash, or fumes, meaning they don’t require ventilation. This makes them safer and they require significantly less maintenance than real or gas-burning fireplaces. An electric fireplace is also less susceptible to rust and can go a decade without repair. That being said, make sure you have the proper electrical setup and be sure to have it inspected regularly by a seasoned electrician or home inspector.    


If you’re concerned about the safety of fireplaces, an electric model is for you. Electric fireplaces remain cool to the touch, which is great for homes with curious children. They also can be run on a timer, meaning you don’t have to worry about shutting them off before leaving the house. 


Resale Value

What many homeowners don’t realize is that fireplaces are high up on potential buyers’ wish lists. Though most buyers prefer a wood-burning or gas model, a well placed and high-quality electric fireplace is also valuable. Considering the low cost of purchase and installation, there is ample opportunity for a relatively high ROI when your home goes on the market.    

As you can see, electric fireplaces are the best option for anyone who wants to maximize style and savings and minimize  risk. With tons of models on the market, we’re positive you’ll be able to find a stylish option  perfect for your home. If you act fast, you can have your fireplace up and running before the real winter hits.

Here they share 5 Tips For Designing Your Outdoor Kitchen:

Designing the perfect outdoor kitchen is a lot like designing the perfect indoor kitchen. There are, however, a few additional thoughts that need to be considered before the putting your design into construction.

 

 

Where is the smoke going to go?

Saber Grills, as with most grills today, vent out the back of the grill when the lid is closed. Not all grilling is done with the lid closed, but enough is done that it is important to consider the placement of the grill. In what direction does the wind blow? This just might be one of the most overlooked variables in outdoor kitchen designs by both professional and DIYers. Try to figure out which direction the wind blows, most often, to avoid having your guests move because they are being smoked out. Or, will the smoke from the grill blow towards open windows in your house? You cannot always avoid the smoke, but with a little careful consideration you can limit the discomfort the smoke can cause. Also, if your outdoor kitchen is under a patio roof or other solid cover do your best to push the back of the grill as close as possible to the edge of the roof line to allow the smoke to escape. 

One alternative is an outdoor kitchen venting or hood system. If your design just will not allow for the best case grill placement, there are great outdoor venting systems, just as there are in your house, to help make the smoke go away. 

Side Burners 

The side burner just might be one of the most under-utilized appliances in your outdoor kitchen. Choosing the right side burner for your outdoor kitchen will make your outdoor cooking experience even more enjoyable than it already is. When deciding if a side burner is a necessary addition to your outdoor kitchen, don’t just think about what you’ve cooked on the side burner in the past, instead think about what you can cook on it that you don’t. A good side burner will allow you stir-fry your veggies in a wok, or how about some fajitas on a cast iron griddle?

The side burner isn’t just for warming up the beans or cooking ears of corn. How about breakfast outdoors? The side burner is perfect for cooking bacon, eggs and pancakes outside. During the summer months, why not take more meal preparation outside? The side-burner will allow you to do that. Or the next time you’re planning fried chicken or catfish, do the smelly frying outside in your outdoor kitchen and save everyone from knowing what your cooked two days earlier.

 

 

Stay Out Of My Space 

Bigger isn’t always better. But when designing your outdoor kitchen, the amount of space needed to keep the guests, host/hostess and most importantly, the grill master, comfortable and happy is critical. Where you place the outdoor cooking appliances will make all the difference in the world. 

For example, as discussed above, why you included an outdoor refrigerator to your kitchen is an important consideration. If the main purpose is to hold drinks for your guests, then make sure the refrigerator is placed towards the ends of the island and not directly next to the grill. Not having the refrigerator near the grill will help keep the active hands of children away from the hot grill. Proper placement of the appliances will also help to keep the grill master in control of his/her space.

Refrigerators

When deciding if a built-in refrigerator is necessary in your outdoor kitchen think about what, exactly, you are planning to use it for. If you are planning on keeping a few drinks for both kids and adults as its main use, maybe using a decorative patio ice cooler makes more sense. A slide out insulated drawer is an option, as is a counter top ice cooler. If the plan is to use the refrigerator to store perishable foods or side dishes before serving, then the refrigerator makes sense.

Outdoor kitchen refrigerators can vary in price from a couple of hundred dollars to several thousand dollars. The purpose of having an outdoor kitchen refrigerator needs to be one of the major considerations when thinking about outdoor kitchen design. Pay close attention to whether your refrigerator is outdoor rated.

 

Trash and Recycling 

Consider a slide out for both trash and recyclables. Having built-in containers makes for a cleaner look and keeps stand-alone trash cans from cluttering up walk ways and the space inside the kitchen.

Wheatland Fireplace your Trusted Saskatoon Fireplace store- 3 Mistakes Homeowners Make - Fireplace Safety

Here the experts share a tip on 3 Mistakes Homeowners Make regarding Fireplace Safety:

Without realizing it, many homeowners create hazardous situations related to the use of their fireplace. Don’t light your fireplace again without making sure that you aren’t making any of the following mistakes which could lead to life-threatening situations:

Mistake #1: Using a fireplace that hasn’t been cleaned or inspected recently.

A report on U.S. fires in 2009 found that about 59,000 house fires were related to heating equipment. Of those fires, 55% of them were caused by using a fireplace that wasn’t clean or properly maintained. There are many potential issues which can interfere with the safe use of a fireplace, some of which can be difficult for the untrained eye to spot. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recognizes these hazards and recommends that a chimney and fireplace be inspected at least annually.

Using a fireplace is a dirty business. Creosote, a flammable tar-like substance, is deposited in the chimney lining every time logs are burned. It’s possible for the creosote to catch fire because of a hot spark or ember. A chimney fire is extremely hot, very dangerous, and can do serious damage to the chimney and flue. If the flue becomes damaged, the combustible parts of the house near the chimney are highly susceptible to catching fire. Home blazes caused by chimney fires usually spread rapidly because of the intensity of the heat.

When one of our professional chimney sweeps inspects your home, the flue is checked to be sure that it is intact and the creosote buildup inside isn’t significant enough to either obstruct the chimney or start a chimney fire. The chimney is also checked for other possible obstructions. There are more than a few potentially dangerous situations that are checked so that the homeowner’s safety when using the fireplace can be assured.

Mistake #2: Hiring a chimney sweep because of low prices without checking the legitimacy of the company.

The Office of Consumer Affairs and Business Regulation has advised homeowners to be cautious because of an outbreak of chimney cleaning and repair scams. Con artists sometimes take advantage of the unregulated chimney sweep industry and lure homeowners into their scams in which extremely low prices for chimney maintenance are offered via phone solicitations, door-to-door sales pitches, and other types of advertisements.

Once they have had a chance to look at your chimney, scam artists routinely make false claims about expensive repairs that are immediately needed, to prevent fires or deadly carbon monoxide leaks. They will accept your money for these costly repairs, and then what they usually do is take the money and run. If they do work on your chimney, there is a chance they will do more harm than good. Though the industry isn’t regulated, there are building code requirements which apply to the chimney; fake chimney sweeps aren’t equipped to do repairs that are up to code. Also, if a fake chimney sweep supposedly cleans your chimney, you can’t be sure your fireplace is safe to use.

Before hiring a chimney sweep:

  • Make sure the company is an established business with a good reputation within the community.
  • Check the Better Business Bureau to see if there is any information about the company.
  • Make sure he or she is certified by the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA), a designation which serves as proof that the person has proper training and experience for the job.

Mistake #3 – Failing to install carbon monoxide detectors in the home.

Even when a chimney has been routinely inspected, unexpected situations can occur which could cause carbon monoxide to enter the home in large amounts. Known as the “silent killer,” carbon monoxide is not detectable until dangerous physical reactions are manifested. The toxic fumes have no smell and are invisible. To avoid the dangers of carbon monoxide which can occur through the use of a fireplace, simply install carbon monoxide detectors on each level of your home.

All of our chimney sweeps are certified professionals and will give you a true assessment of your chimney’s condition. Our customers always get the VIP treatment because we want the ongoing privilege of helping you keep your chimney and fireplace safe.
