Key Features of White Electric Fireplace Heaters and Stoves

What separates the best white electric fireplace heaters from the rest are the design details. The best electric fireplace stoves usually have design details that either make it more realistic or convenient.

Features such as a remote control, a fully openable glass door, sturdy door handle, or 3D flame effects all add to the convenience, realism, and ambiance.

Here are some key features that you should be on the lookout for.

Size of the Heater

Electric fireplace heater and stoves are generally much smaller than electric fireplace TV stands and fireplace mantels.

They are meant to be portable and lightweight so that they can be moved from room to room.

Most fireplace heaters will provide supplemental heating up to 400 sq ft. Some will claim to heat up to 1,000 sq ft but that is less common.

If you are looking for a small, free-standing heater that you can move from room to room, these units are a good option.

Single vs Multiple Viewing Angles

A key difference between a budget and premium electric fireplace heater is the number of viewing angles available.

Budget fireplace stoves typically only have one viewing angle from the front. Higher-end models will have an additional two viewing angles from the sides. Having three viewing angles create a more realistic looking fireplace that can be seen from around the room.

Faux vs Operable Door

Another key difference between budget and premium fireplace stoves is the door.

Premium fireplace stoves allow you to open the glass door, which provides for a more realistic experience like a traditional wood stove. Often, the control panel is hidden behind the door.

Adjustable Settings and Remote Control

Most fireplace heaters come with some sort of adjustable heat setting. However, the higher-end models will come with adjustable thermostats, brightness settings, and some even with LED backlighting.

Remote controls are not a given and do not come with every fireplace stove. Some remote controls come with very simple on/off switches, and others will provide you with advanced customization.
