Heaters in the low price range are usually doubted because they come short in features and their heating capacities are usually not something to write home about. However, Amazon has a lot of great finds, so you can still buy a reliable and stylish electric fireplace for less than a hundred dollars.
These top eight best electric fireplace under $100 should be in your list when you are shopping for a portable electric fireplace.
Best Choice Products is definitely one of the best brands of electric fireplace. Looking at this product’s sleek and modern design matched with a 750-watt and 1,500-watt heat bulbs, no one would suspect that it is only sold for less than a hundred dollars. It can be mounted, but it is also freestanding, so its versatility makes it a space and interior design saver.
The only downside to it is having only two heat settings, but for its price, would you really complain about it?
There are two reasons why it is the second top pick. First, its 4,600-BTU heater provides efficient heating to a space no bigger than 400 square feet. Second, it looks like an authentic 19th-century stove, which can be the perfect accent to add elegance in any house. The pane also remains cool to touch because it comes with an overheat protection.
The only negative thing about this one is its lack of remote control and heat and brightness settings.
Its honey oak finish looks so sophisticated and expensive. The 3D log and flame effect look so real. It uses infrared quartz in heating, which means that the heat it produces is comfortable to the skin even in maximum temperature. The thermostat is also completely adjustable up to 95 degrees Fahrenheit using the remote control. Yet, it is only ranked third because of one downside that is too hard to ignore: It tends to overheat when used for long hours.
The problem might have been caused by the weak yet elegant material, but it is still a good choice for small rooms nevertheless. Amazon buyers seem to agree since it is currently the 13th bestselling portable electric fireplace of the store.
Duraflame is one of the brands to beat in the low-range and mid-range electric fireplaces. This product shows the company’s dedication in creating authentic-looking designs, but what’s really impressive about this model is its 4,600-BTU heater that can cover up to 400 square feet. It has overheat protection and uses durable metal construction, so you are guaranteed to have a sturdy electric fireplace for the years to come.
This is a good find if you do not mind not having a remote control and many heat level settings.
Wouldn’t you like a small electric fireplace that can fit on top of your side table with believable 3D log and flame effect? If it is right to call an electric fireplace “cute,” then this product rightfully deserves the title. Do not be fooled though. It is made from durable steel, so its build is really something to take notice of.
It only has a 4,100-BTU heater that covers 250 square feet, but that is completely normal for a product in its price range.
Simply for being portable, having realistic log and flame effect, and coming with an astonishing 5,200-BTU heater for less than a hundred dollars, this product could have been the first pick in this list. The only problem is that aside from the aforementioned advantages, it no longer has anything else to offer. It should not be an issue if you simply want a standard heater—a really reliable heater—but of course, it does not hurt to get convenience in the package.
When the manufacturer says portable, they really mean portable. This electric fireplace is just a foot tall and nine inches long. You can even carry it anywhere with you around the house. You can use it in an RV or cottage. What’s really surprising about this is that even if it comes in a small package, its heating capacity is still able to cover 400 square feet.
So, why is it in the bottom half of the list? It does not have any satisfying settings, so you have to embrace it for what it is.
Its tempered glass is really interesting because it doubles as a touch screen control panel. Naturally, it is cool to touch even when this electric fireplace is in the highest temperature. The only thing that pulls it down is its fake-looking log and flame effect.
