Do you need a chimney or flue for an electric fire?

One of the advantages of an electric fireplace is that you don’t need a chimney or flue. As Dimplex electric fireplaces don’t emit fumes, you can simply plug it in and turn it on, before sitting back and enjoying the look of a fireplace without the flames.

Dimplex fires can be added as part of a feature wall or as a freestanding part of the room. If you have an existing fireplace opening with a closed chimney, you could add an electric stove to fill the space and add a cosy effect to your home with ease. The Dimplex log effect freestanding electric fires look particularly great in this situation, with their realistic log fuel beds and opti-myst electric stove technology. 

Are electric fires expensive to run?

With electric fires, you can use the flames and the heat effects separately. This cuts down on running costs, so you can have the stunning flame effects without racking up your electricity bill. The total cost to operate both the flame and heater of a 2kW electric fire for two hours is around £2 on a standard tariff, making it a great option.

Can you heat a room with an electric fireplace?

A Dimplex electric fire is an efficient way to direct heat into the room. As electric heaters don’t need a flue, you won’t lose heat through a ventilation system. Instead, the heat output will be directed straight into the room. How much heat will depend on the size of the room, as a 1.5-kilowatt fireplace can heat an area of 150 sq. ft. You can adjust the temperature using the heat settings on your remote control with ease.

For warmer months, you can still get the fire effect of a wood-burning stove but without the heat by using the remote control to turn on flame-only mode on selected electric fireplace suites. Dimplex's coveted opti-myst and optiflame flame effect technology creates the illusion of a genuine roaring fire, complete with the look of real dying wood-burning embers (even when the fireplace is turned off), so your fireplace is sure to be the focal point of any room. 

Who can install your Dimplex electric fireplace?

The beauty of Dimplex fireplace suites is that they are easy to install. If you are confident, you can easily install it yourself. For all freestanding electric fires, you can simply put your unit in the place you want it, plug it in, and you are good to go!

If you’d rather get a professional to make sure everything is as it should be, we recommend finding local trusted tradesmen through Rated People. You can find qualified professionals in your area with ease, so you can feel reassured that your new Dimplex electric fire is perfectly fitted.
