Many people love the warmth and beauty of a fireplace. With rising heating costs, homeowners are constantly looking for ways to reduce the cost of heating their home. This is especially prevalent in old large homes and farmhouses. One problem that homeowners noticed with their old fireplace was that it just did not heat the entire room or home. Fireplace blowers are a relatively inexpensive way to help reduce those costs.
In order to spread warmth throughout a room, these electric fireplaces use a "fan forced heater". Large metal coils are heated within the fireplace, using electricity. A fan is then used to direct heat from the coils outwards, thereby heating the room. These fan forced heaters are silent and very energetic and efficient, allowing the heat to spread over a large area. As soon as an electric fireplace is turned on, the heat is provided instantly with no delay for heating elements to warm up.
