Electric Fire FAQ's

Do I need a chimney or flue if I get an Electric Fire installed?

Absolutely not. One of the advantages to owning an Electric Fire is that they don't emit fumes and so a chimney or flume is not necessary. You simply plug it in, turn it on and enjoy the future of home fires.

Who can install my new Electric Fire?

Most of our electric fires can be installed by the user (though only if you are confident in doing so). Simply hang it on the wall, place it in your hearth surround, plug it in and turn it on.

If you require further help or need specific work done by a professional such as wiring in a fire direct to the mains, we recommend our customers use Rated People where you can find a local tradesman -

How do I clean my Electric Fire?

Before you clean your fire, be sure to have switched it off and have allowed it to cool. Using a damp cloth (not wet), gently wipe over your electric fire. You can use a standard, household glass cleaner on the glass of the fire but please ensure not to use any other abrasive cleaner which could lead to damage.

Where can I buy spare parts for my Electric Fire?

You can email into us at and we can organise for a spare part to be sent out to you.

Can my fire be used as a primary heat source?

The choice is up to you but we would recommend that the fires sold at Radiance be used in conjunction with your home's central heating and not as a primary source of heat.
