Keeping warm with Charmglow Fireplaces
One of the best ways to keep warm during winter is by sitting next to a fireplace. Traditional fireplaces have been the focal point of any room with families gathering around to embrace the heat from the fire and spend quality time together. However, this occurrence was previously only limited to those households with an inbuilt fire place and chimney.
The addition of a fireplace and chimney to the average American home costs $10,000-$12,000 and requires lengthy alternations to the existing structure of the dwelling. As such electric fireplaces have risen in popularity due to their low cost and portability. Charmglow fireplaces are not only considerably cheaper than a traditional brick and mortar fireplace but they also come with a warranty and easily accessible parts. And you thought they only made grills.
Charmglow fireplaces come with a realistic flame which can be turned on with the click of a button. The average unit comes with a 1500 watt forced fan heater ensuring that any room is brought to a more desirable temperature within minutes. One of the major benefits of an electric fireplace is the fact that no installation is necessary. Each unit comes with a standard outlet power supply with up to 3 yards in cord. As such you only need to place the unit 3 yards from an outlet and you have a fully functional portable fireplace.
However the major benefit of Charmglow fireplaces is the fact that it is environmentally friendly. Traditional fireplaces expel oxidation as the burning wood releases smoke into the atmosphere and require regular cleaning in order to meet building standards. An unclean fireplace and chimney constitutes a real risk of wide spread fire as the soot in a dirty chimney has been known to catch fire and create fireballs.
Portable fireplaces on the other hand are simple to clean and maintain. Parts are readily available on the internet and at home improvement stores such as The Home Depot and most new units come with a manufacturer’s warranty. Thus you can be ensured that any fault which does arise will be fixed by the manufacturer and any spare parts needed can be bought with minimal time commitment.
The average Charmglow fireplace weighs only 42 pounds and comes with a realistic lifetime LED flame with some customers commenting that the flame from a $99 unit looks more realistic than the flame from a $400 competitor. Each fireplace is vent-less which saves you the trouble of needing to place the unit next to a vent for circulation. Additionally, you’re able to control the unit and the intensity of the flame with a remote control. This saves you the hassle of having to be in the same room as the fireplace in order to adjust the temperature.
Where to purchase Charmglow Fireplaces
Charmglow fireplaces are currently available from The Home Depot and start from $99. High end units cost $500+ which is still less than 1 percent the cost of a traditional fireplace. You also don’t have to get permission from the local authorities or apply for a permit if you decided to purchase a portable electric fireplace. This not only saves you more money but also saves you time and the added hassle of dealing with bureaucratic red tape.
So if you’re looking to keep warm this winter and don’t want to spend an arm and a leg you can’t go past the environmentally friendly alternative of Charmglow fireplaces.
