Top 3 Realistic Electric Fireplace Inserts for Your Home

One of the biggest appeals of an electric fireplace is that it looks realistic, but you no longer need to deal with the soot and fumes of a traditional fireplace.

Electric fireplace inserts are a popular choice among home and apartment owners who want to enjoy the glow and warmth of a fireplace but don’t have a lot of space.

An insert is generally surrounded by steel or cast iron and has an insulated glass front. These materials help trap the heat, while a vent blows the hot air into the room.

This particular type of fireplace is more compact and ideal for smaller spaces, and if you are considering one for your home, here are the best options.
