Best Wall Mounted Electric Fireplace Reviews in 2017
Wall-mounted fireplaces are the way to go if you want an electric fireplace that will match your modern home while conserving on floor space. When choosing one, you also need to consider if they are sturdy enough to withstand being mounted against a wall. Generally, they will come with metal brackets.
Prior to purchasing one, other things you should consider are: 1) Installation: Will you need a technician or handyman to install? Will you want the unit installed as is or recessed into the wall? 2) Intended Room Heating Capacity: Is the unit suitable for heating large spaces and as main heat source? Or is it intended as an additional heat source only? 3) Style vs Function: Will this fireplace’ design fit the overall look of your home while still being a consistent source of heat?
Taking all those points into consideration, read on below and know more about the top five wall-mounted electric fireplaces this year:

Warm House’s Valencia VWWF-10306 model electric fireplace is a widescreen wall-mounted fireplace, making it both decorative and functional. This electric fireplace is 50.4 inches long so you could place it directly atop the wall near your couch for example.

The unit is relatively easy to install and will come with metal brackets for trouble-free wall-mounting.
ClassicFlame’s Felicity Electric Fireplace is powered by an infrared quartz heater that can generate up to 5,200 BTU enough to heat up a 1000 square feet room. But the manufacturer advises customers to use the unit as an additional heat source.
It comes with a remote control where you can choose between different flame colors and temperature gradients. It is a really elegant piece of appliance fitting most contemporary homes.
Most wall-mounted electric fireplaces aren’t meant to be used as a primary heat source since they lack the heating capacity. But on their own, they can do a decent job in heating up a single room or part of a house. The Urbana 35-inch Electric Fireplace is one of such faux fireplace. On top of that, it has a curved panel design with black glass frame. It also sports LED flame effects where you can choose between 3 colors (orange, blue, red). You can choose between three types of ember beds (logs, stones, or crystals).
It generates up to 4777 BTU/hr, enough to heat up a 400 square feet room. The heat is spread by blower fans. Its safety feature includes a built-in timer, auto-shut off mechanism, and has side lights that you can turn on/off. You may need the help of another person when screwing the fireplace to the wall.
Gibson Living’s Soho 35” Curved Wall Mounted Electric Fireplace is another elegant fireplace where you can choose between two different ember beds (pebbles or traditional logs). As with most wall-mounted electric fireplaces, it is encased by a black glass frame and can be operated with or without heat.
It is powered by coil heaters that can generate up to 5200 BTUs. Heat is circulated with the use of high power blower fans. The timer, heat, and flame display settings can be adjusted using either the manual switches or the remote control.
