Living Well At Home
Happy New Year! Does anyone else feel inspired by the start of a new year? Now that January has arrived, this can be an ideal time to set goals, like creating a warm and cozy atmosphere in your home. Helping people achieve their dream living space is what makes us tick at Twin Star Home®, so we’re sharing our top three reasons why electric fireplaces will make your life better in the new year.
No matter what your personal style is, electric fireplaces add a charming focal point for your living space. Thanks to technology like the patent pending 3D Flame® Effect from ClassicFlame®, you can have eye-catching, realistic-looking flames. This innovative technology makes it easier than ever to enjoy that soothing, flickering light that you love about a traditional fireplace.
For a comfortable, at-ease feeling of modern farmhouse style, consider a wall mantel. A mantel adds a classic look and a place to display favorite items – from knick-knacks to books. Models like the Duraflame 26″ PanoGlow 3D View Mantel Fireplace Heater provide a beautiful blank canvas for your seasonal home décor.
For those who love a modern look, the 60 inch Media Mantel with Panorama Fireplace creates a clean, streamlined atmosphere in your home that will keep your space—and your mind!—clutter-free. This style is also perfect for displaying photos or the latest art projects from school.
Professionals like Rachel Moriarty love the design flexibility of an electric fireplace. This San Diego-based interior designer and brand ambassador for the Design Network has been featured in HGTV magazine. AND she loves this idea for home design.
“One of the things I love about electric fireplaces is that you can create a whole room around them,” Moriarty said. “You can do it for any style from coastal to modern, from retro to industrial. And I just love all of the versatility that offers a designer.”
Electric fireplaces improve your décor and provide an energy-efficient way to keep your most-used rooms more comfortable. Instead of turning up the thermostat for your entire home, set it lower and add heat where you need it. This allows you to create a supplemental zone heating strategy that makes living spaces toastier and reduces overall energy use. Electric fireplaces use a lot less energy and fuel than wood-burning fireplaces yet provide the same welcome warmth. And since an electric fireplace doesn’t come with the upkeep of a wood-burning fireplace, it’s a much cleaner, environmentally friendly alternative.
Generally speaking, using supplemental heating like electric fireplaces are a smart way to cut costs. Lowering the overall temperature of your home by 10-15 degrees and heating only the room you’re in can help save up to 15% on energy bills. And that’s more money for those dream renovation projects, a smart home device, or whatever else makes you smile.
