What is INSERT ELECTRIC FIREPLACE:
An electric fireplace insert is a device that can be inserted into an existing fireplace to provide heat and a realistic flame effect using electricity. Electric fireplace inserts can be used as a standalone heating source or as a supplement to a central heating system. They typically include a heating element, a fan to circulate the warm air, and a realistic flame effect that can be controlled via a remote or a wall switch. Some electric fireplace inserts are also designed to be inserted into a wall unit, and can be used as a decorative and functional addition to a room.
Development of INSERT ELECTRIC FIREPLACE:
An electric fireplace insert is a device that is designed to be inserted into an existing fireplace. The development of electric fireplace inserts has followed a similar trajectory as the development of electric fireplaces more broadly.
In the early days of electric fireplaces, inserts were not available and the electric fireplaces were large, bulky, and not very realistic. They primarily served as supplementary heating source and didn’t mimic the look of real fires well.
In the 1980s and 1990s, with the advent of halogen bulbs and light effects, electric fireplace inserts became more realistic in their look, and they began to gain popularity. These inserts were designed to fit into an existing fireplace, and provided a realistic flame effect without the need for venting.
In recent years, the development of electric fireplace inserts has focused on creating products that are more energy efficient, easy to install, and come with a variety of features and control options. They come in different styles and sizes, with more realistic flame effects, LED lights and improved heating elements. They are also designed to be safe, and require no venting.
