As of 2015, the Raleigh Espresso from ChimneyFree ranks as a good electric fireplace option, according to Top Ten Reviews. This fireplace is freestanding but can be mounted, and with its compact size, works well in small spaces. It warms spaces up to 1,000 feet with an infrared heating system.
Other quality electric fireplaces include the Classic Flame Pasadena, which features an entertainment center with significant storage space. Top Ten Reviews also recommends the Dimplex Amsden model, which uses lights and water to create the appearance of flames. Unlike many fireplace models, this specialized electric fireplace gives off no emissions.
