Finally deciding on the type of electric fireplace that you want and having troubles on deciding which type of logs to add to your home? Having an electric fireplace with logs is just like a replica of the traditional fireplace, except this does not give out any sort of fumes or some. This guide will help you counter that problem. Here are some points to help you decide to look for the perfect log to make your heater the best electric fireplace this holiday season.
Choosing the Type of Flame
Most electric fireplaces uses a certain light bulb to create the authentic glow to make synthetic flames look real. There are different levels of how real you want your flames to look when placed on the fireplace logs. Some adds the familiar cracking sound that you hear from burning wood to add to the auditory experience, while other regular ones uses fans and lights to give the synthetic flame more of a realistic illusion.
You’ll have to decide how much fake logs you’ll want to structure to make them look visible for your electric fireplace before purchasing. If your fireplace is situated at the center of the room that is visible from two sides and you’d like to have the logs be seen from the front and back, you’ll need to have a flame that flickers at the center and not from the side of the logs. Same goes to any other fireboxes that is visible from more than one side.
If you already have logs that give out ventilation, you’ll need to find yourself something like a draft through a damper or flue. However, if the logs are unvented, they are more likely to have less realistic similarities than a real log, but they are more efficient in distributing heat around the room.
