How do I install an electric inset stove?

Your inset electric stove will require a wall cavity to be placed in and will operate on a single standard electrical socket, but may need to be properly installed by an electrician if you are looking to create a new socket or install it directly without a plug.

If you don’t already have a recess in which to place your stove, you’ll need to look carefully at the product details before starting work to make sure you have space available for the model you want. For any professional help with installation, we recommend our customers use Rated People to find tradespeople in their area.

Do electric stoves really heat a room?

Our electric stoves generate between 1-2kW of heat but are not recommended to be used as the sole heating source of a room. The benefits of an electric fireplace are instant heat and fuel efficiency but you should generally use an electric fireplace alongside your central heating.

Our electric inset stoves are also capable of use without the heat, meaning you can enjoy your fireplace all year round regardless of the weather.
