Where To Install Electric Fireplace
To install an electric fireplace, it is important to refer to the product manual. However, there are basic procedures for installation.

Find a safe location close to a power outlet and avoid using an extension cord. The main cable must remain at the back of the appliance and must not be in contact with any hot element.

Wall mounted electric fireplaces can have heat coming from the top of the unit, the front of the unit and the bottom of the unit. So, depending on where the heat of your fireplace is generated, there is a need to consider appropriate clearances from flammable objects around it.

Top heat fireplaces should not be placed directly under an outlet because the heat coming from the top can heat up the electrical cord and cause a fire.

However, most people like to install their electric fireplace below their television. As a matter of fact, modern media consoles are designed with space for electric fireplaces. So, if you are looking for a fireplace to hang below your television, bottom and front heat units are your best bet.
