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.
