How much does it cost to operate an electric fireplace?

This depends on your electric rates, which can vary quite a bit from region to region.  So, check your electric bill to get a sense of how much you are paying per kilowatt/hour (KWH), of your electricity.  The following chart can give you an idea of the operating costs of an electric fireplace.  In this example, we have assumed the following:

  • Fireplace is on for 12 hours/day.
  • Fireplace consumes 1800 watts/hour with heating element on.
  • Fireplace consumes 20 watts/hour with heating element off.


  .04ȼ per KWH .08ȼ per KWH .12ȼ per KWH
WITH HEAT ON .87ȼ $1.75 $2.60
WITH HEAT OFF .01ȼ .02ȼ .03ȼ
