Now that we’ve explained the difference between a traditional wood burning fireplace and a gas burning fireplace, let us introduce you to a third option; the Electric Fireplace.
An Electric Fireplace can be an excellent addition to your room, adding style and functionality at the fraction of the cost of a traditional wood or gas fireplace.
Electric Fireplaces can be wall-mounted providing use in any space large or small, including bedrooms, bathrooms, foyers and more. Many Electric Fireplaces can be plug-in cassettes and inserts, perfect for custom applications.
There are many features to look for in an Electric Fireplace, here are a few from the Dimplex line of fireplaces;
- Supplemental Heat
Includes a powerful fan-forced heater designed to keep the rooms you spend the most time in warm and comfortable.
- Direct Wire
Fireplace can be direct-wired for a seamless look.
- Inner Glow Logs
Pulsating embers glow from within the realistic, hand crafted logs.
- Glowing Ashes
A natural arrangement of glowing ashes creates an authentic feel.
- Metal Log Grate

- Optional Metal Backing
Metal backer inserts into fireplace for dramatic presentation of flame effect.

Since many electric fireplaces only need a standard house plug for power, this allows for more unique looks. Dimplex offers a number of Electric Fireplaces that can be used as additions to your specific look, without taking the focus away from your individual design.
A massive benefit of having an electric fireplace is incredibly low emissions and waste. Since an electric fireplace plugs into a simple house plug, it does not need to burn gas or wood, preventing the emission of CO2 and other harmful emissions. In today’s eco-conscious world, an electric fireplace is an easy choice.
