We have a large see through fireplace that uses gas. Is it possible to switch it an electric fireplace?

Answer:This could work, though it is single sided. You would need to install two back to back.

The opening on my fireplace is 30" (w) by 23" (h). I'm looking for a electric insert that will fit this opening. Also, can I add skirts to cover about five inches of brick on the sides and top?

How well does it heat a big room? We have a gas insert in our wood burning fireplace now. We would prefer the cleanliness of an electric insert, but we also worry that it won't warm the room enough. How well do these work in comparison to gas?
By Chris C. on October 14, 2016
Answer:With gas fireplaces, they heat primarily by means of radiant heat. When the flames are burning, heat radiates through the glass into the living space. This type of radiant heat is more similar to heat from the sun. When a blower is installed into a gas fireplace, the blower pulls air from the floor around the fireplace chassis, and pushes the heated air back into the room. This type of heating is convection, which is how electric fireplaces operate. Electric fireplaces are largely limited to 5,000 BTU per hour, but are very efficient as they do not lose heat to venting, like a gas fireplace would. This model in particular is rated to 5,000 BTU per hour, which would allow it to heat upwards of 150 square feet.

How much space does this heat?
By Will M. on November 1, 2016
Answer:As is the case with most all electric fireplaces, a 120 Volt - 1500 Watt / 5000 BTU heater will provide heat to a space of roughly 144 square feet with standard 8' ceiling height.
