Electric fireplaces are very popular right now, which means a lot of companies are trying to capitalize on the trend. This can create a confusing shopping experience as these new items are being presented alongside the top manufacturers, often at seemingly impressive prices, and when shopping online it can be hard to tell the difference between the quality.

But those prices come with a caveat: you won't be getting the kind of high-quality, feature-rich product we specialize in here at Fireplaces Direct. When you invest in an electric fireplace from our collection, you're getting a top-notch product that will serve you for years to come, offering realistic flame effects and reliable performance. We're going to break down exactly what it is that separates our electric fireplaces from those you'd find at a big box store or from non-specialist online retailers.

More Natural-Looking Flames

Many of these bargain electric fireplaces feature flame effects that are nothing more than an underwhelming light show on a flat surface. Our offerings break that mold by using innovative tech and careful design to really capture the essence and atmosphere of a real flame. This kind of attention to detail is why we choose to carry the brands that we do.

One of the top examples of this kind of realistic flame experience is the Opti-Myst collection from Dimplex, available in a variety of sizes. These innovative electric fireplaces project light onto water vapor, giving the flame effect a truly natural, three-dimensional look.

Our Electric Fireplaces Offer Better Features

A budget electric fireplace will often be nothing more than a box with lights and maybe a built-in space heater. When you shop our selection, on the other hand, you'll find appliances that are rich with quality-of-life improvements like app-enabled control, multiple colors, heat settings, and designs that can be hardwired into your home.

Look no further than the Napoleon Alluravision series for an example of what we mean. These premium electric fireplaces offer features like four flame color options, a Crystal Clear Cube Ember Bed and integrated Night Light LEDs for a truly alluring overall package.

Higher Quality Construction

The old adage "buy it nice or buy it twice" comes to mind. These bargain electric fireplaces require some corner-cutting to get their prices that low, and whether they're skimping on materials or labor, the end result is a product that probably isn't going to last very long. Here at Fireplaces Direct, we carefully curate the brands we carry to ensure we only sell the very best in the industry. Because we filter for quality workmanship and design, we can proudly stand behind all the products we sell.

The cream of the crop when it comes to a well-made electric fireplace is the Amantii Panorama Series. They combine innovative design with quality materials and manufacturing to provide a product that is sure to be a centerpiece of any space for many years to come. The Panorama Series offers ambient LED canopy lighting in 13 customizable color combinations to suit any mood or decor.

Should You Buy a Quality Electric Fireplace?

While budget considerations are always a factor, here at Fireplaces Direct we believe that investing in quality is worth the price. The sheer range of features combined with the reliability and durability you get from a quality electric fireplace make them the winner over the cheaper options found at big box stores. When you add in the quality customer service and support we offer, the choice couldn't be more clear.
