Are Electric Fireplaces Safe For a Farmhouse?


If you live in a farmhouse, you may be wondering if you can install an electric fireplace safely. Luckily, the answer to that question is a resounding yes! In fact, electric fireplaces are the best option for many farmhouse owners, and they offer multiple key advantages over wood, gas, wood pellet, and Duralog fireplaces.

While there are many electric fireplace options available, our products are among the best on the market. There are numerous reasons for this, and this MagikFlame electric fireplace buying guide will show you why our fireplaces are the best choice for your farmhouse. 

Why You Should Choose An Electric Powered Fireplace For A Farmhouse

If you are planning to put a fireplace in your farmhouse, it’s important to take steps to minimize the fire risk, and there’s no better way to do it than installing an electric-powered fireplace. Not only that, but these products do not create any emissions. This means that you will not need a chimney or any form of ventilation.

Furthermore, there will be no carbon monoxide risk. The only step that you will need to take to ensure that there is no fire hazard will be to make sure that drapery, cloth, and other flammable items do not come into contact with the coils or the grate covering them. That’s because these materials can catch fire.

Luckily, this danger is quite easy to avoid, and the fire risk pales in comparison to a wood-burning fireplace or gas fireplace. That’s because the products are designed to produce heat without combustion. However, that does not mean the flames won’t be realistic. In fact, the flames of an electric-powered fireplace can be highly realistic. Not only can they simulate the look of a genuine fire, but they can even generate crackling sounds that are just like an actual flame.

Does A Wood Mantel Or Frame Present A Fire Risk?

A wooden mantel or frame does not present any fire risk if you choose an electric-powered fireplace. That’s because electric-powered fireplaces do not create any combustion.

Are There Any Important Considerations If You’re Using One In A Farmhouse?

If you are using an electric-powered fireplace in a farmhouse, you’ll be pleased to know that it will be capable of heating your home even more effectively than you might expect. The reason for this is the fact that these fireplaces typically do not generate an extremely large amount of heat output, but the small size of a typical farmhouse will make it easy to heat a large portion of your home with it.

In some cases, it may even be possible to use it as a main heat source. However, the house will typically have to be fairly small for this to be the case. However, an exceptionally powerful electric-powered fireplace will be able to heat a larger area than you might expect. This is certainly the case if you choose MagikFlame. In fact, all of our products are capable of generating 5,200 BTUs.

Can You Use An Electric Fireplace In A Home With A Rustic Style?

If you have a farmhouse, you may be wondering whether or not electric-powered fireplaces are compatible with a rustic-style home. Fortunately, the answer to this question is yes. However, whether or not our products will be right for you depends on the specific style that you wish to create in your home, and it also depends on the specific version of our products that you choose. Here’s what you need to know to determine whether an electric-powered fireplace like ours will be right for you:

  • Consider whether or not you have enough room in your house to set it up (in almost all cases the answer to this question is a resounding yes)
  • Consider where you will put the fireplace
  • Determine if the product that you are considering will fit with the overall style of your home
  • If you have a home that primarily features wooden furniture, floors, walls, and other forms of decor, it will usually be best to pick a fireplace that has a wooden frame. Luckily, this will be possible with an electric-powered fireplace.

Why Is It Important That Electric Powered Fireplaces Do Not Create Combustion?

There usually is not a lot of space in a conventional farmhouse, which means that carbon monoxide can be a serious threat if you choose a fireplace that uses combustion. However, this will not be an issue with any type of fireplace that is powered by pure electricity. That’s because carbon monoxide is exclusively generated as a result of incomplete combustion. If there is no combustion, there will be no potential risk of carbon monoxide.

You Can Save On Your Energy Expenses

While it may seem like an electric-powered fireplace would be very expensive to operate, this is not necessarily the case. That’s because you’ll be able to easily adjust the settings, which can allow you to use only the amount of energy that you need. This can ensure that your energy bill stays as reasonable as possible throughout the year, and that can be a huge savings for some homeowners.

Choosing An Electric Powered Fireplace Can Prevent Infestations And Are A Highly Convenient Option For Homeowners

If you have a farmhouse, it’s important to ensure that pests from the outdoors do not make their way into your home. One of the worst pests that a homeowner can have to deal with is bats, which often have a way of making themselves at home in a chimney. Fortunately, you will not need a chimney if you choose a fireplace that is purely powered by electricity, which is because these products do not require combustion.

So, choosing an electric-powered fireplace can help to protect your home and living room from pests, including bats. Also, the fact that you will not have to burn any wood or other materials in your home means that you won’t need to refuel a gas supply or purchase firewood in order to sit around the fireplace in the evenings.

A Stylish Electric Powered Fireplace Can Be A Perfect Fit With Almost Any Type Of Home Decor

If you have a rustic-style living room, room with a TV console, or den, a wooden fireplace can be a perfect fit for your farmhouse-style home. While it is not possible to have a wood fireplace that generates an actual flame, it is possible to have a wood frame fireplace that is powered by electricity alone.

That’s because there is no danger of combustion occurring in your living room. Furthermore, it is possible to pick out a metal frame fireplace for a home that has a more modern style, and painting the metal frame can allow you to get the look that you’re trying to create in your farmhouse very easily.

It’s Exceptionally Easy To Control The Fireplaces That We Offer

It’s possible to change the settings on your farmhouse fireplace with a remote control. Also, you’ll be able to control your insert fireplace from miles away if there’s an internet connection. How is this possible? The answer to that question is that you can do this with an iOS app that we have created specifically for our fireplace design. This can be easily accessed from anywhere that you have an internet connection.

This can allow you to change the settings on the fireplace when you’re away on vacation or at work! Most other fireplace manufacturers do not offer this. Furthermore, it will be easy to contact customer support to ask any questions that you have about the remote controls that we offer. This will help to ensure that you’re able to properly set up and use your fireplace.

Not only that, but it will be possible to ensure that the app is properly integrated with the electronic devices that you have in your home. Our customer support representatives will be able to ensure that you are able to properly connect your iOS app to voice assistants, computers, smartphones, and other devices. This will allow you to control the fireplace from anywhere. Here are a few other important things to know about controlling our fireplaces remotely:

  • It’s possible to control all of our farmhouse fireplace products from your home office with either a desktop computer or mobile device. All that you need to control them is an internet connection, which you’ll even have in a minimalist modern farmhouse design.
  • If you find that one device is not working properly, you’ll usually be able to change the settings on another device that you use. That’s because the app can be connected to other electronic devices with Bluetooth, and Bluetooth can also be used to connect electronic devices to your fireplace.
  • If you are unsure of whether or not your electronic devices can be connected to the iOS app on your farmhouse fireplace, our customer support representatives will be able to assist you.
  • You will not have to pay extra for the app or any of the support that is offered by our staff, which ensures that setting up your fireplace will be as affordable as possible regardless of your home’s interior design. Furthermore, you usually will not have to hire anyone to assist you, which also helps to reduce the cost of setup considerably.

Will You Need To Seek Assistance If You Choose One Of Our Competitors?

In many cases, you will need assistance to set up one of our competitors’ fireplaces in the entertainment center, dining room, or living room of your new home. However, this depends on the specific manufacturer that you choose, and another factor to consider is whether you will need to set up a mantel shelf, a fireplace mantle, a fireplace surround, a fireplace TV stand, or other essential furniture items along with your farmhouse fireplace.

Also, you’re more likely to need assistance if your new fireplace will be a focal point of your home design. The new farmhouse fireplace would be considered a focal point if it is one of the first things that people will see when they walk into your farmhouse living room.

Is It Possible To Control Our Fireplaces With An iOS or Android Device?

The app MagikFlame offers operates on iOS. No Android app is available at the moment. That does not necessarily mean that you will not be able to use the touchscreen to manage the fireplace. 

Our staff members will be more than happy to assist you with any issues that you’re facing. If you have a problem with your new fireplace, there is a very good chance that we have dealt with a similar issue in the past with another customer. This will help to ensure that we will be able to offer you the right answer.

Not only is our online photo gallery easy to access, but you’ll be able to find decor on Etsy that will go well with your new fireplace. For instance, it will be possible to find a coffee table, corbels, products that can go with a brick fireplace hearth or fireplace mantel, bookcases, shelving, a floating shelf, shiplap decorations and shiplap baskets, barn door decor, boho furniture, and other stylish farmhouse decor options. These decor items can allow you to give your den a makeover without calling the architect to remodel your home!

Will You Be Able To Find Plenty Of Barnwood Decorations That Will Fit With A Brick Fireplace Hearth?

Luckily, it’s easy to find this type of decor online. So, if you have a fireplace hearth that’s made out of brick, any home builder will tell you that making use of barn wood decorations is an excellent DIY method of improving the look of your new home’s interior.
