Why Electric Fireplaces Make Perfect Sense in Phoenix

Having entered the HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, & Air Conditioning) trade as a young man in NYC, fireplace installation was commonplace. Most homes in New York had a wood or gas fireplace as a secondary from of heating. In fact, I personally serviced many fireplaces back East and woodstoves that were the primary source of heating in the home.

Aside from the obvious heat source, fireplaces add ambiance, coziness, a place for the family to gather, even romance to your home. Who doesn’t enjoy a nice fireplace?

However, here in AZ we don’t always want to add heat to our homes to create the ambiance fireplaces offer. That’s why electric fireplaces in Phoenix make perfect sense. Electric fireplaces give you all the benefits of a wood or gas fireplace with, or more importantly, without generating heat.


Not Your Parents Electric Fireplace!

Magic Touch Mechanical & our fireplace store, The Fire Place, have been installing, remodeling, and repairing fireplaces for 27 years. Until about 10 years ago, most of those fireplaces were propane or natural gas fireplaces. Older electric fireplaces rarely looked remotely like a real fireplace. In fact, some of the old school electric fireplaces were downright ugly!

That’s not the case anymore. New electric fireplace technology has advanced so much that you’d be hard pressed to tell it was electric. I remember being amazed the first time I saw the Modern Flames, Orion Multi at a fireplace trade show. I turned to my business partner and said look at that electric fireplace. She said, (and I quote) “that’s a gas fireplace.” Upon closer examination (somewhat starry-eyed) she said, “I want one!”
