Twin-Star Best Sellers and Why They're So Popular

Twin-Star International has long been one of the biggest manufacturers of electric fireplaces that we sell. Parent company of ClassicFlame, Duraflame and Chimney Free brands, it’s no wonder why these are some of the most popular electric fireplace lines on the market today. With a focus on quality heirloom furniture and state of the art engineering, Twin-Star products seamlessly combine form and function to deliver stellar aesthetics and unmatched supplemental heating. Let’s take a look at some of their best selling electric fireplaces.

Duraflame 550 Black Electric Fireplace Stove with Remote Control - DFS-550-7

With over 600 reviews, this powerful, space-saving little heater packs quite the punch. Weighing only 25 lbs., it is portable enough to move anywhere your home is feeling drafty, yet can heat up to 400 sq.ft., as impactful as a much larger model. Controllable by remote, run the heat or flames independently for year-round comfort and ambiance.

“I am 84 years old and on blood thinners. It heats the living room wonderfully. Without it I am freezing all the time. It was very light and easy for me to set up. I like the remote to turn it on and off as it saves me from getting up.” -Charlie, Newville

“Our house is nearly 100 years old with high ceilings and is very hard to heat. This stove is doing a great job in area heating. I am about to order another one for the kitchen and possibly one for the bedroom.” -Donna, Ashland

“I was looking for something small for a property that I manage and we needed something with a fan that could circulate the heat. This is just the ticket. It creates a conversation when my friends enter the room to sit down like its a real fireside chat.” -Donna, Longmond

Brookfield Electric Fireplace Entertainment Center in Premium Oak - 26MM2209-O107

If you’re looking for a contemporary media console that will match just about any decor, 100s of people have found the Brookfield to be the perfect entertainment center option. Proudly display your TV and components while gazing at the roaring fire provided via a 26” built-in firebox. LED technology allows for greater energy efficiency and zone heating and there is even a sleep timer for “set it and forget it” mode.

“We had been looking for an electric fireplace with three main wishes -- 1) a well built piece of furniture, 2) able to house a 55" TV with surround sound equipment, and 3)have a realistic flame. We had been shopping for nearly 18 months because there wasn't one that satisfied all of our needs. I can assure you, this one did!!” -Dan, Rockford

“Purchased for comfort, relaxation and entertainment. I love the realistic flames and I was surprised by how well it heats the entire first floor. Thinking about purchasing a second one for the bedroom.” -Beckie, Philadelphia

“The unit is cosmetically flawless. The wood is beautiful and was meticulously packaged to avoid any damage during shipping. The fireplace itself is very nice--one of the best I've seen.” -Roger, Fenton

Duraflame 20-Inch Electric Fireplace Insert/Log Set - DFI020ARU

If you have an existing gas or wood fireplace you’re considering retrofitting with electric, but are worried about how real it will look, the Duraflame Insert will put your mind at.  Compact logs project LED lights and high efficiency flames off the back of your firebox to create an illusion that’s second to none. An ember bed rolls and pulsates to add to the visual effect, and the entire unit can be used with or without heat for year-round enjoyment.

“After moving to a warm climate from the cold north, I have been in my home for a year with a fireplace that wasn't being used. I needed something to give the living room some atmosphere. This log inserts are wonderful; adds just the touch I needed.” -Karleena, Altamonte Springs

“Best when reading, meditating and kicking back with spouse for a night of TV and movies. Helps to relax after a long day without the clean up that follows with the old traditional wood fires. Instant pleasure without all the necessary logistics of firewood and the knowledge of the trees saved. Time is now spent on more home and family projects.” -Woodman, Hattiesburg

“I purchased this product to have a fireplace in my bedroom...AND I LOVE IT. It heats my room just enough, is nice to look at and don't have to fool anyone with fuel gel cans which would bother my asthma.” -Anonymous, Los Angeles

Whatever style of fireplace you’re looking for, Twin-Star has a product to fit your needs. We can’t wait for you to see the difference for yourself.
