Electric fireplaces work in any home, and in any room. They create the perfect ambiance to beckon feelings of nostalgia and cozy comfort, creating a gathering place where families can gather to reminisce and share memorable moments, or a loving spot where a couple can kindle their romance. Around the fireplace is the perfect place to forge new memories.
With the latest innovations in fireplace technology, electric fireplaces offer the look of real fire and the heat expected from a fireplace, but with a smaller carbon footprint. What’s more, the ambiance can be enjoyed at any time of the year, with options that allow the flame to be turned on without it giving off any heat.
And they are easy to install. There is no need for a complex venting system that requires space on an exterior wall — most models just need to be taken out of the box, positioned and plugged in. Available in a variety of styles, electric fireplaces will fit the style of any home décor.
Wall Mount — The true plug-and-play electric fireplaces, they boast a sleek, modern design. Able to mount on the wall of any room, they are unobtrusive — taking up about the same amount of space as a television — and offer options for variable flame colours at the push of a button. The Napoleon Alluravision series have a near-frameless design so the focus remains on the fireplace.
Built-In — Often more linear in shape, these are a luxury option to be built into a wall, and often hardwired into the home’s electrical system. The Napoleon Clearion Elite series is the first truly see-through electric fireplace that can create ambiance and warmth in two rooms at once.
Rustic Traditional — To replicate the look and feel of a wood-burning fireplace, the fireplace should be designed to sit on the floor and within a mantel. The firebox should appear to be deep, with a realistic log set and an ember bed that glows orange and yellow. The Napoleon Ascent series offers flame technology that randomly adjusts the flame effect, color, height and speed — creating the illusion of a true wood-burning fire. It is perfect for any room in a house, condo, apartment or office.
Modern Traditional — Another fireplace to set into a mantel, but with a more sleek, modern look. There is no log set, but an ember bed, with the technology to select different colours for the flame and ember bed. Napoleon’s Cineview series also offers a self-trimming flange to complete the clean look.
