Not only does it keep me warmer in my home, but oil prices are on the way back up again. The economy is still tight, and every dollar saved adds up during times like these. I can lower the heat in my house and I'll save money on my heating bill as a result. Between the extra warmth and a few dollars saved, I have every reason to recommend looking into fireplace blowers.
An electric fireplace runs on electricity, which is less expensive as compared to fuel and gas both. The heat is adjustable and can be set accordingly. This benefit was never available in traditional style as there was little control over how the fire looks. The fireplace is not heated up after usage, which reduces the chances of getting burnt accidentally. Especially with small children and pets, this is a significant advantage.
