Nowadays, electric fireplace inserts have gained popularity thanks to many benefits they provide. Using them does not mean that you have to forgot your traditional fireplace: just fit the device into your existing fireplace to use and take it out when you prefer real fire. As electric fireplace inserts and pre-existing traditional fireplaces are related, comparison naturally arises. So what are advantages of an electric fireplace insert over the traditional fireplace that make people want to opt for an electric fireplace instead?
1. It is more eco-friendly
Unlike gas or wood burning fireplaces, electric fireplace inserts are powered by electricity. Therefore, you don’t have to worry about harmful effects of smokes or emissions into the air. These days, people become more and more concerned about the environment; so it is a natural choice to go green by using an electric fireplace insert instead of a traditional fireplace.
2. It is safer
An electric fireplace insert has a clear advantage over a traditional fireplace: it ensures better safety. Most electric fireplace inserts have automatic shut-off features which make sure that overheating will not occur. This is very important when you have to leave the room for some business: you can just leave the device there with no worry. On the contrary, it is dangerous to leave a burning traditional fireplace unattended. Gas leak, fire spreading around, explosion…who can foresee the extent of damage and injury when such situation occurs?
No smoke and emission mean it is safer for people’s health to use an electric fireplace insert. Also, its surface is cool enough to touch, so you will be more at ease about possible burning or injuries, especially when children are playing around it.
3. It is more cost-efficient
Installing and operating a traditional fireplace are both expensive. You have to prepare wood or other fuel and need a space to store these materials as well. You have to clean up the chimney by yourself (which is really hard work) or have someone else to it for you. Periodic inspection is also required to make sure no cracks or leaks in the chimney. Taking out ashes must be done frequently.
With an electric fireplace insert, you just need to fit it into an existing fireplace and plug it into the appropriate electric outlet. And because it runs on electricity, you don’t have to stock wood or fuel anymore. Admittedly, you have to pay for the electric bill and an electric fireplace insert costs about as much as a space heater; however you don’t have to worry that your bill shoots up suddenly if you don’t turn on your device with heat 24 hours a day.
There is no chimney to clean or ashes to remove. Maintenance does not cost you much; mostly it is about basic cleaning or changing the light bulbs. It is ideal for those who are busy and don’t have much time to spend on cleaning.
When you use electric fireplace insert for zone heating instead of heating up your whole house, it works really efficiently.
4. It has longer lifespan
Electric fireplace inserts are considered to last longer than traditional fireplace because they suffer from less corrosion. Since it is easy to maintain them, they can remain visually appealing even after many years.
5. It is more convenient to use
Using an electric fireplace insert is easy. The temperature is adjustable and you can even do so without having to come close to the fireplace insert. Everything can be ready at your finger tip with the remote control. It is not just the temperature you can control: you can change flame speed, brightness….as you wish. With a traditional fireplace, you may have to come close and bend down frequently to check out and adjust the fire if you want to obtain the desired temperature.
In addition, an electric fireplace insert can be used all year round. You can opt to use the device with or without heat; therefore even if you want to enjoy the dancing flame in summer, it is fine. This make an electric fireplace insert a nice decorative item in your room.
6. It is portable
Obviously, portability is not something a traditional fireplace can offer since it is designed to be a permanent feature in the room. On the other hand, an electric fireplace insert is easier to carry around. If you want to use it in a different fireplace, at your friend’s house perhaps, just take it out and bring it with you to that location.
That being said, the traditional fireplace has its own distinctive features. People may prefer real flame than the flame effects created by the electric fireplace inserts. It can’t be denied, however, that electric fireplaces are superior when it comes to health and environment issues.
In transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) treatment for pain relief, electric signals are transmitted from the device (known as TENS unit) through electrodes placed on the skin surface to the nerves under the skin. If you don’t use these electrodes properly, your body can experience discomfort or pain even though the signals are generally mild and safe. Here are 5 things you should know about electrodes in the TENS unit:
1. Where to put or not put the electrodes?
This is one of the most basic concerns of users when applying TENS treatment. In knowing where and how to place the electrodes, you should consider the following matters:
Identifying the kind of pain you are having and where it is. In order to maximize the effect of treatment, you should place the electrodes around the area where you feel painful. If you feel painful in a small area, place the electrodes on either side of the pain. For larger pain area, line up the electrodes along the pain, especially at the start and end point of the pain.
Always place the electrodes on healthy skin
Never place electrodes on the following areas to avoid harmful effects:
Front or side of neck
Sensitive, irritated skin area or where there are cuts, even if the cuts are healing
2. How to use the electrodes properly?
Always use clean, dry electrodes and replaced damaged ones prior to using.
The number of electrodes used depends on the area and level of pain. Normally, two electrodes (one channel) or four electrodes (two channels) are used in one area of pain; four electrodes are applied in case of large or widespread pain.
The distance from one electrode to another counts: You should avoid two much electric signals transmitted to one small area; that why electrodes should never touch. In fact, they should be at least one inch apart from each other. Take note that this distance can affect the effectiveness of the electrodes
There is no optimal setting of electric signal applied for everyone. Each person’s condition and sensitiveness is different. Start with low setting when you get a tingling feeling and slowly increase the electric current until you feel a strong but comfortable sensation. When your body adjusts to the effect, slightly increase the setting to maintain the strength and comfort experienced from the signal. If the setting is too high, your body will feel uncomfortable; your muscles may twitch. On the other hand, if the signal is too weak, treatment will not be effective. Remember the setting that works for you and maintain it. Turn off the TENS unit while you adjust the setting.
3. Why electrodes don’t stick?
There can be several reasons:
You place them over a joints, perhaps your knees or elbows, when you move around: electrodes may not stick well for long due to movement
You apply the electrode on the skin area that is not clean or dry enough: It is important to clean and dry the skin properly before using the TENS unit.
You don’t clean or hydrate the reusable electrodes prior to using them. If there are residues such as skin oil on the electrode surface, use a soft, moist cloth to wipe them away you can even use a toothbrush on the flat surface. Rub just a little water (one drop or two) on the gel surface to make sure surface is hydrated
The electrodes are worn out and over-saturation occurs: normally they retain moisture from perspiration or the surrounding environment. If you add too much water in an attempt to re-hydrate the gel surface, you can also cause over-saturation.
Adhesive dries out.
4. How to maintain the electrodes?
The usual life-span of self-adhesive electrodes is around 3-6 weeks; how long these electrodes last depends on my factors such as: humidity, skin type. The following tips can be helpful to prolong their life-span:
Even if you use the TENS unit all day, electrodes must be replaced at least once. In fact, you should rotate them every 4-6 hours to avoid saturation. This is especially important when the surrounding environment is hot or humid.
After treatment is over, use soapy water to remove the gel from the electrodes, dry them off and store them in a cool, dry, place. You can also put them in a plastic packing and store in the refrigerator to remove excess humidity.
5. Are electrodes safe for the skin
In general, electrodes of the TENS unit are considered hypoallergenic and therefore safe for the skins. However, there are reported cases of allergy or skin irritation. If you experience such symptom, stop using the TENS unit and consult the therapist.
To avoid your skin from getting sore or red from the treatment, take these two simple tips:
If you use the TENS unit all days or several times consecutively, don’t put electrodes at the same skin area. Choose a different spot for each time of treatment.
Protect your skin by apply lotion or creams on it after the treatment is over.
