Everything has pros and cons, so it is an artificial fireplace. Some of the disadvantages are:
- Does not give warmth to the whole house as a real fire do
- Runs purely on electricity so they are non-usable on power outages
- The fuse might blow when attached to a circuit with other appliances
- Needs to be mounted to ensure safety
Another main thing an artificial fireplace can avoid is a chimney fire. A chimney fire is the burning of some or all residue deposits commonly known as soot or creosote inside the inner surface of the chimney tiles stove pipes or fuel liners etcetera. When an unburned fuel or any volatile inside an attached appliance like a stove or open fire, accumulate and plugs up in the chimney, then gets very hot and burns and starts a fire.
One way to prevent this is to run appliances hot during the initial ignition phase regularly, to avoid deposit build-up. Regularly clean the flues using a home chimney swipe and using internal chimney compared to an external home chimney attached to the external wall.
