What is an electric fire suite and why do people choose to buy them? In this article we look at their rising popularity and consider their development and the technology involved. This should give you an overview of what electric fires suites are all about.

When we think backs to the origin of human civilization, it's clear that the most basic requirements of life will have remained the same for many centuries. In particular, just like early human beings, we would seek food, drink, shelter and warmth.

At the most basic level, warmth will have been provided by open fires. As technologies advanced, many of us left open fires behind and looked for more modern solutions. Over the past thirty years this has often meant the installation of central heating systems in our homes.

Indeed, such is their popularity that most new homes are built to include central heating. It seems easy to see why - they are easy to use and efficient, ensuring that we control the temperature at the touch of a button. Why would we need anything else?

Despite this, it's clear that many of us like the thought of a real fire. With modern homes frequently being built without chimneys, having a real fire blazing is not always possible. An artificial alternative can provide the answer, which is where electric fires come in to this tale.

Electric fire suites can take various forms but they usually consist of a modern fire, plus a fire surround. Modern fires have been developed to such a high degree that they now mimic real fires extremely effectively.

It's one of the reasons why so many people are choosing to use them. They can look fantastic, with options to either replicate traditional fires or to provide a sleek, modern feel.

If you don't already have a fireplace then an electric fire suite is the ideal solution when it includes a fire surround. This enables you to really create a feature in your room, making the fireplace the centre of attention.

The development of modern fires has been such that it's now possible to even produce flames without heat, thanks to technological advances. That may sound strange but what it means is that you can even get the look and feel of a fire on days when you don't really need the heating on.

Modern electric fire suites aren't just practical - they enable you to make a style statement too.
