Do you want a flame heater that looks like a fireplace, but you can move it around to heat different rooms? This portable fireplace is ultra-versatile, plus it looks cool and can save you money.
This compact unit has the warming power of a high-quality space heater, but it looks like a modern fireplace with glowing embers and flames that change colors. It’s like having your own mini fireplace, but you don’t have to deal with smoke, ashes or flue cleaning.
In addition, this portable electric fireplace is super lightweight (23 pounds) and easy to move around. It’s really practical because you can use it virtually anywhere in the house that has an electrical outlet. Make any room instantly more relaxing.
How to Set Up a Portable Fireplace:
One of my favorite features of this fireplace is how easy it is to set up. Plus, the unit comes already assembled. The entire process takes only 10 minutes – or less.
On top of that, the fact that you can move this mini fireplace around (it only weighs 23 pounds) makes it extra versatile. For example, use it in the home office while you work, then move it to the guest room when friends come visit, etc..
The “hearth” has detachable support feet, so if you want a freestanding fireplace, just attach the feet and plug the unit into the wall. Place it on the floor, on a TV console, a cabinet, countertop and more.
On the other hand, you can mount the firebox on a wall using the attached hanging bracket and included screws. If you place the unit over an electrical outlet, you may be able to hide the power cord completely behind the fireplace.
Alternatively, you can get a paintable cord cover that conceals the electrical cord. This cool little accessory keeps your wall installation tidy and professional looking. Plus, the cover sticks to the wall, so it takes minutes to put in place (and no tools needed!).
Note: The heater vents are located on the top front of the fireplace. In other words, the warm air blows upward.
Therefore, you want to ideally place the unit lower in the room so that the warm air heats the room more efficiently. In addition, you don’t want to hang the heater directly underneath a flat screen TV.
How to Save Money with Your Flame Heater:
Portable space heaters can be a great way to reduce energy bills by strategically warming certain areas of your home. For example, a home office while you work or a guest cottage when friends come to visit, etc..
You can also use this small mobile fireplace without the heat. Turn on the flames only to enjoy the ambiance while just paying pennies per hour for the LED bulb.
Can I Get This Electric Fireplace in White?
This model does not come in white, however, this brand does come in white. That said, it only offers the wall-mounted option.
Alternatively, you can go with a more traditional freestanding wood stove look (still a plug-in electric fireplace). The e-Flame Jasper also comes in white and looks like a vintage style stove heater with flickering flames and faux logs. However, it weighs less than 20 pounds and is easily movable. Plus, it makes a great option if you want something that fits in a corner.
