Electric inserts are often used when there are safety concerns about children and pets, or if there is no access to other utilities. With these inserts, no clearance area is needed around the fireplace because there aren’t real flames. That mean you don’t have to worry about loved ones getting a smidge too close.
Electric inserts are one of the newest on the market, with a variety of designs. You can choose between authentic looking flames or something that is a little more unique and a little less traditional. They’re cost effective options that are extremely low-maintenance as well.
