An advanced Cool Touch technology allows you to place your Dutch Haus Fireplace against any wall or near any piece of furniture, because the back of the insert will not give off heat. Cool Touch technology also means that your Dutch Haus electric fireplace is child and pet-safe. The heart of every energy-efficient Dutch Haus Fireplace is its innovative electric insert. Featuring a realistic crackling ember bed and softly flickering flame, this high-tech insert quickly emits a remarkably warm 4,600 BTU's of heat on its highest setting—at an average cost of 13 cents per hour. That's why our fireplaces make the perfect area heater for any room in your house.
