One may also ask, do electric fireplaces use a lot of electricity? Typical Electricity Usage Electric fireplaces use only about 1,500 watts of electricity. Operational costs range between 0.003 to 3 cents per hour when you use them strictly for decorative purposes -- that is, the flames are activated but no heat is produced.

Keeping this in consideration, do electric fireplaces look fake?
