I really want to get an electric fireplace for my living room this holiday season, and having an electric fireplace I know would be completely and utterly awesome! I have a few friends that have electric fireplaces in their homes and they look beautiful at Christmas time, and not to mention, the electric fireplaces actually can heat up the living room without the use of the central heater, in turn, in the colder winters, this can save you a little bit of money on your monthly energy bills.
If you were to run the electric fireplace instead of the central HVAC system during the day while you are awake and in the living room, you cut your heating and cooling bill in half, at least that is what one of my friends told me. I have yet to verify that once I get my own electric fireplace and try what he did. I see they have many different brand electric fireplaces on sale right now at this one outlet store that sells appliances and other things. So I am going to take a trip down there this coming weekend to check out all the different brands of electric fireplaces that they have on display and on sale. And whichever one seems the best looking and highest working I will most likely end up buying. I will not listen to any salesman. I will be picking out this electric fireplace for my house all by myself! That way I know I picked the right one and was not misled by anyone for a sale.
