No, it does not. This is one of the appeals of an electric fireplace. If you want a bit of heat, turn the heat on. If you want just the effects afforded by an electric fireplace, without any heat, just leave the heat off. This will allow you to enjoy that special feeling and atmosphere created by your electric fireplace year-round, not just during the heating season.
