Tennyson Electric Fireplace with Bookcase – a Good Deal?

Tennyson Electric Fireplace with Bookcase in 4 Colors
Tennyson Electric Fireplace

The Tennyson is an elegant electric fireplace with bookcases on either side. It is more substantial than a recessed model or a version with just a plain mantel. If you are looking to decorate a large or empty wall, the Tennyson fireplace can be a great fit.

Intricate Molding of the Tennyson Electric Fireplace with BookcaseAlthough this portable unit costs less than $600, it features intricate traditional carvings and moldings throughout. It appears more expensive than it costs. Plus, its timeless design adds even more value because it never goes out of style.

On top of that, time flickering flames are pretty realistic along with the glowing (and pulsating) embers. I think the interior brick backdrop adds a nice touch as well.

The Electric Fireplace with Bookcase Offers Lots of Functionality…

The bookshelves provide extra storage for books, DVDs and other decorative items. Furthermore, the mantel can hold a flat screen TV (up to 85 lbs) above the firebox. It is very functional without taking up much floor space.

In addition to the storage features, the Tennyson can also heat up to 400 square feet of space. It is perfect for a large family room, living room or even small cottage.

It comes with a remote control, which adjusts the flame level, heat and glow of the embers. Plus, you can use it to turn on the timer. Check out the video below:


Save Money with an Electric Fireplace…

1. LED Bulbs:

Similar to other electric fireplaces, you can turn on the flames without turning on the heat. If you want to enjoy the ambiance of flickering flames without paying for heat, you can!

Without heat, the only energy you are using is that which powers the LED bulbs, and this is very, very cheap (pennies per hour). This is a great feature that you can’t get with gas or gel models, pellet stoves or wood burning fireplaces. It’s a great way to save money.

2. Easy Installation:

Another great cost savings that comes with these fireplaces is that they don’t require special installation or permits. Simply assemble it and plug it in to the wall.

You don’t need venting, a gas line or a chimney. Electric units provide a cheap and simple way to renovate your home without having to hire a contractor or pay thousands of dollar for a remodel.
