If you have a fireplace with inserts installed, then you won’t need to worry about cleaning the ash, soot and debris after each use. You will not have to worry about sparks or chimney problems. Though traditional fireplaces offer a nicer look, they can be quite a hassle in the winter time.
Electric fireplace logs will save you not only time, but also money. You will not need to purchase logs or any type of fuel needed for the fire. You can just buy an electric fireplace or insert and forget about those problems.
These fireplace logs are fire resistant and are actually made from real wood, some chemicals, cement or resin. They have a similar look to real logs. You can plug them in an electrical outlet and then watch them light up. They can also create a nice crackling sound.
It’s very difficult to reproduce the same look as real logs without these special inserts. A standard set can cost around $60. The only thing that they cannot do is generate heat.
For the heating fixture you may need to pay $200 and up to $500 for some good quality fireplace logs. They can produce between 2500 and 5000 BTUs. They provide more heat than real burning wood logs.
They are especially designed for vent free fireplaces. They can also have a remote control that will allow you to set the temperature and start the fire.
