Electric fireplaces are attractive to a growing number of homeowners due to their modest price and simple installation, requiring no venting or gas lines. Simplifyre, a brand of Hearth & Home Technologies, will have two new electric fireplaces on display at the International Builders Show this week in Las Vegas the Simplifyre 30-inch See Through and the Simplifyre 26-inch electric fireplace.

The See Through builders unit model is the first and only see-through electric fireplace in the industry. It features exclusive, patented dual flame technology and standard bi-fold glass doors on each side. It comes standard with a wireless remote control. This See Through model can be installed at any height on a full or half wall, creating a dramatic room divider. It requires a 17-inch wall depth and a custom surround.

A builder favorite, the Simplifyre 26-inch fireplace continues to be a popular choice. With a large viewing area for its size, it can be installed with zero clearance and flush to the wall. It features a portrait-style design that is compact and can be installed at any height. It has hand-painted brick, glowing logs and an undulating ember bed with a patented flame. The 26-inch fireplace comes standard with a wireless remote control and operates with or without heat, generating up to 4,500 BTUs per hour with great heat disbursement and no hot spots. Homeowners can choose from three decorative fronts including modern and mission styles. If the unit is installed as an insert to replace an existing fireplace, there is one optional front available.

Electric fireplaces promote healthy indoor and outdoor air, in accordance with all green building programs. They are great for interior walls, lower levels, all electric communities, multi-family and single and multi-story residential and commercial buildings.

Both electric fireplaces are on display at the International Builders Show this week in booth C5643. For product images and additional information, visit www.fireplaces.com/profitsolutions.com, and click on Media Kits.
