Will an electric fireplace heat my room?

Many variables affect how much space an electric fireplace will heat.

  • House age
  • Type of construction
  • Condition and size of windows and doors
  • Sidewall and ceiling insulation levels
  • Southern Orientation
  • Prevailing winter winds
  • Etc.

And obviously, a home in Northern Canada will have different heating requirements than a house in the Carolinas.

Many people use electric fireplaces as supplemental heat, not the primary heat source. Generally, an electric fireplace can comfortably heat most well-insulated rooms in colder climates, up to 250–300 square feet. If your electric fireplace is in a larger room, you can expect heating within a 10 - 15 feet radius.

The heating element in most electric fireplaces, stoves, and inserts is 1500 or 1800 watts. Respectively, this translates to 5000 and 6140 BTUs of heat.
