How to Buy Electric Fireplace Inserts That Look Real


Electric fireplace inserts are designed to take the place of actual burning logs inside your fireplace while still giving you and your guests the impression of a relaxing fire. Some electric fireplace inserts look terribly fake so you need to be aware of certain details that will help you find electric fireplace inserts that look genuine and are a proper substitute for an actual flame.

  • Bargain basement electric fireplace inserts will look extremely fake so plan on spending at least $200 to get a decent one, but probably more like $300-400 if you are looking for something really nice. You might be able to find electric fireplace inserts for less than that online but the only way to know for sure to spend some time searching around.

  • Pay close attention to the movement of the flame in the electric fireplace inserts that you are thinking about buying. Flame movement is one of the hardest aspects of a real fire to replicate and one of the first things that will subconsciously tip people off to the fact that your fire is not real.

  • Choose electric fireplace inserts that emit crackling sounds while they are turned on for the most realistic looking fires. If someone sees a flame but doesn't hear any noise they will know automatically that something isn't right and that you have a phony fire going.

  • Look at demo models inside fireplace stores to see the inserts in action so you can get an idea of that which one looks like a convincing fire. Some of them even have adjustments that change the intensity of the flame to create the illusion or a larger of smaller fire.
