How does an electric fireplace work?
An electric fireplace works by using an LED screen or a rotating LED light effect, which creates the play of light that creates a look like real flames.
Newer technology has made it possible to create more and more realistic flame effects using electricity. Among other things, Dru Fires has developed an advanced 3D technology that creates realistic crackling flames, and Dimplex has developed Opti-myst technology, which is used in hybrid fireplaces and which creates beautiful dancing flames.
The heating element found in most electric fireplaces works by drawing cold air into the fireplace, which is then heated by means of a heating coil and the heated air is then gently forced out into the room again by means of a fan.
Some electric fireplaces instead use infrared technology to create heat. It works by converting electricity into radiant heat, which heats objects in space.
Do electric fireplaces use a lot of electricity?
Most LED fireplaces come with a heating element, but most can also "burn" without the heating effect turned on. Whether the heating element is switched on has an effect on how much power the fireplace uses.
But as a starting point, an electric fireplace will use approx. the same amount of power as a regular electric radiator. An electric fireplace consumes approx. 1.5 kW.
If the heating power is switched on, the kW of the power will be added. This means that if you have turned on the fireplace's heat on at 1.8kW, it will consume a total of approx. 3.3 kW.
What does an electric fireplace cost to run?
An electric LED fireplace that does not have a heating effect on will cost approx. 0.06-0.08 DKK to have driving per hour - this of course depends on the price of electricity.
An electric fireplace with the heating effect on will cost a little more. As a rule of thumb, it will look like this:
- 1 kW, will approx. increase consumption by £0.23 per hour = approx. £0.29-0.31 per hour.
- 1.5 kW will approx. increase consumption by £0.34 per hour = approx. £0.4-0.42 per hour.
- 2 kW will approx. increase consumption by DKK £0.45 per hour = approx. 0,51-0,53 per hour.
How much heat does an electric fireplace provide?
There is no single answer to the question of how much heat an electric fireplace creates, as it differs from fireplace to fireplace both which heating method is used and how much the individual electric fireplace can heat. In addition, the space in which the electric fireplace heats and how well insulated and large it is also has a great influence on how much heat is created.
However, you can see the heat output of the individual fireplaces in the product description, this can help to give a good indication of the heating effect of the fireplace.
As a starting point, however, an electric fireplace can not be used as a primary heat source, but must instead be used for cozy and radiant heat. The fireplace must therefore help to supplement the warmth in the home and at the same time create a cozy fireplace atmosphere.
What type of electric LED fireplace should you choose?
Which electric fireplace you should choose depends very much on your needs and what look you want it to have. So you must first find out where you want your new LED fireplace. There are electric fireplaces for installation in several different ways and with different expressions.
Among other things, you can get electric fireplaces that look like a classic English mantel fireplaces or electric built-in tunnel fireplaces. The possibilities are many, so do not be afraid to dream big!
