An electric fire at home

3 min read
Gas fires and electric fires have their own benefits and characteristics. In this article we explain what it is like to have an electric fire at home, from daily use to maintenance.

Like most modern gas fires, you operate an electric fire with a remote control, which is really convenient.


Daily use

The fire of a wood fire needs to be fed and you need to keep adding wood. You also need to empty the ash drawer and you need to add wood to the fire. Like most modern gas fires, you operate an electric fire with a remote control, which is really convenient.

For a Faber electric fire, you only need water and electricity and that in small quantities. In terms of use, an electric fire costs a lot less than a wood fire or a gas fire. An electric fire is also odourless and will not bother anybody, no matter how often you use it.

An electric fire does not produce any heat and therefore does not affect complex and sensitive climate-control systems in the house. The temperature remains exactly as you would like to have it.

The maintenance of an electric fire is limited to cleaning the glass from time to time, plus a periodic service by the fire specialist. Should there be a fault, you just contact the Faber fire specialist.

Finally, legislation and regulations regarding having and using a wood fire do not apply to an electric fire. You also don’t have to worry about emissions or smells.
