Determining the Cost of an Electric Fireplace Installation

Electric Fireplaces and simple beauty go hand-in-hand for the best reasons. Not only are electric fireplaces more energy-efficient than their wood and gas counterparts, but they also tend to have more straightforward installations. With that established, it’s not hard for us to understand why you’d be in the market for one! And once we’ve helped you find your perfect electric fireplace match, we know you’ll ask what comes next. After all, buying your fireplace is only one of the first steps to getting a fireplace. Installing it is another entirely.

One simple internet search reveals another appeal to going electric: DIY. If you have the proper tools and knowledge, you may consider following online tutorials to complete the installation of your electric fireplace. While this may help keep your budget low, at Arizona Fireplaces, we will always recommend having fireplaces, fire features, outdoor heating products, and grills installed and serviced by NFI Certified technicians.

Professionally installing your fireplace prevents the manufacturer’s warranty from becoming null or void and ensures that everything is done safely. You may also consider reaching out to a professional electrician as both electricians and fireplace installers will be able to provide an accurate cost of installation estimate that is tailored to your specific needs.  

Odds are several key factors will go into determining your cost of installation. These factors include location, installation complexity, and optional accessories. Each will play an important role in getting your fireplace out of the store and into your home, so let’s break them down.  

  • Location
    Location, location, location. What it costs to have an electric fireplace installed in one state may be different in another due to taxes, the average cost of labor, and other area-specific variables.

  • Wiring
    Any new electrical wiring required to complete the installation of your electric fireplace will likely increase the total of your estimate. NFI Certified technicians are not electricians—for more complex situations such as this one, consider reaching out to a local electrician!

  • Customization
    Whether you want to incorporate a unique finishing material in your design, want to install a fireplace underneath your television, or are looking into optional panels and accessories, customization will affect your estimate total.

  • Additional features
    Other additional features like mantels or remote controls will also be factored into the total of your estimate.
