An electric fire heater typically features realistic flame effects generated by LED lights and may include adjustable brightness settings and flame speed controls to create a cozy and inviting atmosphere. These heaters often come with remote controls for convenience and can be used independently of the heating function, allowing for year-round enjoyment of the visual effects.
Electric fire heaters typically have safety features such as: Overheat protection: Automatically shuts off the heater if it overheats.
Tip-over protection: Automatically turns off the heater if it's tipped over.
Cool-touch exterior: Exterior remains cool to the touch to prevent burns.
Flame-only mode:Allows for the visual effect of flames without heat, reducing the risk of overheating.
Electric fire heaters are not typically intended to be used as a primary heating source, as they are primarily designed for supplemental heating or visual ambiance. They are more suitable for providing localised warmth in specific areas of a room rather than heating an entire space.
