What is a contemporary electric fire?

Contemporary design is defined by simplicity, modernity and style. Our modern electric fireplaces feature smooth lines and modest design without additional decoration to make sure the fireplace complements the entire design while still being elegant and attractive enough to steal the show.

Our exciting range of contemporary fireplaces features leading brands such as PureGlow, Gazco, Celsi and Dimplex. Their contemporary inset electric fires and electric fire suites offer numerous awe-worthy displays that are sure to become the focal point of your living room. Using Optiflame and Opti-Myst LED flame technology, the flickering flame effect rivals that of a real log burning fire but without the need for a flue or constant heat - in the warmer months, simply use your remote control to select a flame effect only mode for all of the 'wow' but none of the heat output.

How much does a modern electric fireplace cost to run?

Most modern electric fireplaces are designed to operate using a standard plug and provide 1-2kW of heat output. This means they can be run for pounds a year with continued use, helping to keep your electricity bill down while still benefiting from the additional heat source.

Do electric fireplaces really heat a room?

Most electric fires have heat settings between 1-2kW and provide heat much more quickly than other traditional heat sources. Though they’re not designed to be the sole heating source of a room, they are an excellent addition to any room. They are much more efficient than traditional fireplaces as no heat is lost through a chimney or vent.

Electric fireplaces can also be used without heat, allowing you to create a cosy atmosphere no matter what time of year.

How is a contemporary electric fire installed?

Freestanding and wall-mounted fireplaces are fairly easy to install and may be done without the help of a professional if you feel confident in doing so. However, inset fireplaces may need more support when installing if you aren’t replacing an existing fireplace. We recommend our customers use Rated People to find qualified professionals in their area.
