The benefits of electric fires

Get the effect of a real fire with all the benefits of electric and none of the fuss and cost of installing and maintaining an open or gas fire…

Easy to install

Incredibly easy to install in a matter of minutes; just plug in the Dimplex electric fire into a 13 amp socket and switch on! 

Because Dimplex electric fires do not require a chimney, flue, pipe-work, or even a fireplace, you can choose where to place it wherever you like in your home.

 Add a choice of suites and ready-to-fit surrounds and Dimplex has a fire to suit your décor and create a centrepiece in any room.

Easy to operate

Heat and flames are instantly available at the flick of a switch, but many Dimplex electric fires also offer a handy remote control, so you can adjust both heating and ‘flame’ effects from the comfort of your sofa.

And when you set a room to a comfortable temperature, fires with Dimplex’s room-sensing thermostat technology will constantly measure the ambient temperature and adjust the heating to eliminate inefficient and uncomfortable 'room temperature swing'.

So minimum effort, and with no unnecessary heat produced, which also helps save you money. 

Energy efficient

All Dimplex Optiflame® and Opti-mystTM fires are 100% efficient at point of use, so no heat is wasted helping to reduce your carbon emissions.

And because they work independently of the heating, you can enjoy the relaxing effect of the ‘flames’ all year round, adding ambience without overheating the room on mild evenings or when the central heating is on.

With LED bulbs throughout the Optiflame® range of fires the cost of running a fire in ‘flames’ only setting can be as little as £2 per year.  The predicted life of these LED bulbs is 100,000 hours or almost 55 years of use. *

*Average 2008 rates p/kWh, assuming 5 hours/7 days per week usage.

Safe and reliable

Only Dimplex brings you the internationally recognised BEAB approval on all electric fires* giving you the extra guarantee of safety.

Because Dimplex electric fires do not burn fuel internally to generate heat there are none of the associated safety risks, such as carbon monoxide poisoning.

And you do not have to worry about regular servicing either – saving time and money.
