Wish you could enjoy the warm glow of a fire without all the work that went with it? You can! Cool to the touch and a snap to install and operate, today’s electric fireplaces offer designs you’ve never before dreamed possible, making an ideal home comfort solution for busy families, especially those with children and pets.

Is an Electric Fireplace the Right for My Home?

  1. Efficiency

    Electric options such as the vibrant and colorful Napoleon Allure are one of the most efficient ways to heat a room. With no heat loss via chimney or venting, rooms heat quickly and stay warm. Used with a zoned-heating approach, you could save up to 10% on energy bills. In addition, new LED technology offers realistic flames at a fraction of the cost of regular incandescent bulb models, keeping more energy dollars in your pocket.

  2. Minimal Installation Cost & Hassle

    Electric models are easy to install, particularly wall-mount varieties such as the modern Napoleon Azure Vertical or ultra-realistic Dimplex-Redway. With no need for venting, they can be installed in any room, on any level, in any living space from apartments to RVs.

  3. Convenient Operation

    Flick your remote or set the thermostat, enjoying convenient fireplace operation comfortably from your couch. Set the time from minutes to hours, opt for a model with built-in temperature monitoring, or operate on-the-fly. Enjoy the ambiance of a gently-rolling fire with the traditionally-inspired Napoleon Ascent, all year long, with or without the heat.

  4. Safety and Warmth

    For those who don’t enjoy the smoky aroma of a natural fire, but do appreciate the look and feel of one, electric models are an ideal solution, especially for those with respiratory conditions, allergies and asthma. They are also a terrific fit for children and pets, reducing the risk of injuries and burns courtesy of a cool exterior.

  5.  Low-Maintenance

    Fireplaces that operate on electricity require little in the way of maintenance save for the occasional dusting. Go electric, and you can leave lighting dilemmas, soot, ash, chopping, buying, and storing wood to the wayside. Not susceptible to rust or corrosion, electric options will last years looking as new as the day of purchase.


At Fireplace Warehouse ETC, we make the addition of a fireplace a snap. We don’t just sell an amazing variety of fireplaces, we install and service them too! For the quick, convenient installation of any electric model, contact us today.

Gas Heating Appliances: Should I Turn the Pilot Light Off?

It’s Summer: Should I Turn Off the Pilot Light of My Gas Heating Appliance?

Unsure how to best handle your gas heating appliance in the warmer months? As it turns out, the solution to whether or not you should turn off your pilot light off-season is not a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer.  The decision to turn off your pilot light should instead center around your goals, frequency of off-season use, and capacity to re-light the pilot when cool weather sets back in.

 Reasons You May Want to Leave Your Pilot Light On

  • Quick Access On Cool Evenings

    When nights are cool, you can more quickly and conveniently take the bite out of the air by leaving your pilot light in play.

  • Pest Prevention

    Spiders are drawn to the chemical in gas companies add to give it odor (for safety). Unfortunately, even when the pilot is turned off, this odor remains. While spiders alone may not be a big deal, their nests can be, blocking burners to create difficulties with ignition later. If clogged bad enough, professional maintenance may be necessary, resulting in a service charge.

  • Operator Ignorance

    Let’s face it, we’re not all Tim the Tool Man. If you’re one of the many who doesn’t know how to relight your pilot, you may want to leave the pilot on. Otherwise, you’ll end up paying the gas company a minimal service fee annually for a re-light.

Reasons You May Want to Turn Off Your Pilot Light

For those committed to the annual fall maintenance to ensure proper operation – and a spider free environment – you may want to consider turning off your pilot light for a variety of reasons…

  • Energy Savings

    Turning off the pilot light off-season can save a substantial amount of gas – and money. Some 3-4% of fuel costs. Depending on the efficiency of your fireplace, this could add up to around $7-10/month for gas models, and as much as $24/month for propane.

  • Cooling Efficiency

    When your pilot light stays on, it continues to generate heat, albeit a smaller amount than your fireplace. Nonetheless, this is counterproductive to cooling needs, adding to HVAC use and expenses.

  • Glass Door Damage

    The flipside of spiders….. When pilot lights remain on for an extended time without running the main fireplace burner, a white (sulfur) film can develop on the inside of the glass. If not properly cleaned per manufacturer instructions, it could cause etching.

Do I Even Have a Pilot Light?

Unsure if you have a pilot light? Some newer fireplace models, such as the Napoleon Galaxy and the Regency Horizon, use an electronic ignition in favor of a pilot light for energy savings. If you don’t see the word ‘pilot’ on the control knob, you may not have a pilot light to turn off.

Have You Completed Annual Fireplace Maintenance?

Fall weather is closer than you think! Luckily, whether you need help replacing, installing, or maintaining your fireplace, Fireplace Warehouse ETC has you covered. Learn more about our convenient and affordable fireplace maintenance services today.




Is a Pellet Stove the Right Choice for You?

Categories: Tags:
Pellet Stoves

Considering a pellet stove as a heating option? Available in many sizes, shapes, and colors, with a nearly endless variety of inserts, modern pellet appliances are a terrific fit for the busy lifestyle of today’s families.


Flexible Fire

Compatible with multiple renewable alternative fuels ranging from wood to corn, wheat, barley and even cherry pits, today’s pellet burners can now be fueled with bags conveniently available at your area home improvement, outdoor supply, or big box retailer. No hearth required, they can be quickly and inexpensively installed atop a hearth pad and simply vented via an exterior wall, offering amazing installation flexibility in nearly any room of the home. Many manufacturers even offer a battery backup for the event of power outage.


Quickly and Affordably Installed Before the Height of Heating Season

A clean burning heat source producing far less smoke and ash than wood burning options, many pellet models qualify for federal tax credits of up to $300. In fact, most of today’s pellet appliances already meet the EPA’s 2020 standards for wood burning heaters. Better still, they can pay for themselves over time, reducing your energy needs as part of a zoned-heating strategy.
