"Electric" Bed and Breakfast by Fireplace Xtrordinair Emits Sound, Installs Easily

    Ideally suited for smaller living spaces and dwellings, the popular Bed & Breakfast by Fireplace Xtrordinair is now offered as an electric portrait-style fireplace. Perfect for simple installations within apartments and condos, the electric version is a unique, portrait-style size smaller than a traditional fireplace - combining the soothing ambiance of fire with the flexibility and convenience of electricity.

    The 'Electric' Bed & Breakfast is another creation from Kurt Rumens, president of Fireplace Xtrordinair (www.fireplacex.com), "The fireplace is quite versatile and can be easily inserted into: bedrooms, baths, dens or hallways among others - anywhere you'd like that added atmosphere of fire," said Rumens. "Best of all, it installs in minutes - just plug and play!" Play indeed. One of the most unique features of the 'Electric' Bed & Breakfast fireplace is a built-in sound card emitting a crackling fire sound. "It sounds as good as it looks - just like a real fire," added Rumens. In addition, the sound feature is compatible with iPod™ Nano or can be upgraded with another MP3 stereo system.

    With a 1,350-Watt electric heater and a whisper-quiet adjustable convection fan, it heats like a space heater yet adds another dimension of ambiance throughout the space. The portrait-style fireplace category is truly revolutionizing the hearth industry, and the electric version comes with numerous options for a custom look matching every décor: four arched face designs - black painted classic, brushed nickel classic, antique gold French country and Artisan hand-hammered; and three interchangeable polycarbonate interior liners - beehive brick, travertine stone and rumford herringbone brick. Each appearance option can be teamed with a wide-array of wood cabinets readily available, or installed within sheetrock right up the face for a customized look.

    The 15-inch wide by 20-inch high portrait-style design features a three-dimensional log set, computerized LED flame for ultimate fire realism, built-in air purifier and removable fire screen atop its generous fire-viewing area of 300 square inches. A perfect solution to add the beauty of fire where wood, pellet or natural gas cannot be burned.

    "The portrait-style fireplace category is quickly becoming one of the most exciting fireplace innovations within the entire hearth industry," added Rumens. "Apartment dwellers and condo owners especially love them because they offer the ability of adding a unique, dramatic element to dwellings not normally able to accommodate a traditional or gas fireplace."

    Available for nationwide distribution beginning in Fall 2007, the 'Electric' Bed & Breakfast by Fireplace Xtrordinair comes with a seven-year "real world" warranty, and operates via residential electricity. It is recommended that all Fireplace Xtrordinair appliances be installed and maintained on an annual basis by an authorized specialty hearth retailer.
