The best electric fireplaces for rental properties
Electric fireplaces make great additions to rental properties as they are highly efficient, safe, practically maintenance free, and are typically very stylish – adding to the ‘rentability’ of your properties.
Below, you’ll find a selection of the best electric fireplaces for rental properties.
OER Flametek Midi Electric Fireplace Suite
If your property doesn’t have an existing chimney, fireplace and hearth, then you’ll want to buy a standalone fireplace suite.
The OER Flametek Midi perfectly fits the bill!
This fireplace suite is designed to be incredibly easy to install; simply align against a wall, plug it in, and it’s ready to use.
As it’s a freestanding fireplace, you have maximum flexibility as to the positioning of the fire. You just need a flat wall to place it against. As such, the OER Flametek Midi isn’t confined solely to living rooms; you can place it in other parts of your rental property if you wish.
Aside from its immense practicality, the OER Flametek Midi has a number of aesthetic benefits too. It features an impressive, realistic flame effect which can be used without heat output.
The suite itself is finished in satin white, with an Astoria grey shelf. It also features a range of fuel bed options, including coals, logs, pine cones, pebbles, and crystals.
So, if you’re looking for a great all-round electric fireplace suite for your rental property, choose the OER Flametek Midi!
Elgin & Hall Pryzm Volta 1000 Electric Inset Wall Fire
Should you have an existing chimney breast in your rental property, then you’re going to want an inset electric fireplace.

Designed to fit in either a prefabricated media wall, or a masonry chimney breast, the Pryzm Volta 1000 is an incredibly stylish and attractive fire that doesn’t break the bank.
The Pryzm Volta 1000 really stands out thanks to its patented 5D flame effect with three flame colour settings. This flame effect is unbelievably realistic and creates a truly attractive focal point. To make things even better, the fire – and its flame effect – can be easily controlled using a remote control.
It’s not just about looks, though.
The fire is supplied with a frame fitting kit, which is designed to make installation faster, simpler and to ensure a perfect fit every time, whether you’re fitting it in a media wall or an existing chimney breast.
The Pryzm Volta 1000 is available with a matt black, chrome, or black nickel trim, meaning there’s an option for you, regardless of the decor of your rental property.
