FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Are Dimplex fireplaces expensive to operate?
No! Dimplex fireplaces operate for pennies a day. The flame uses slightly under 300 Watts of power. With an average electricity rate, the unit operates for a remarkable 3¢ per hour providing all the warmth, ambiance and romance of a fireplace. When you choose to activate the heat feature along with the flame, the unit uses approximately 1500 Watts. The total cost to operate the flame and heater is approximately 8 ¢ per hour (gas fireplace manufacturers regularly advertise running costs of 17¢ per hour)! Electricity rates vary. 8 ¢ per hour based on heater cycling at 50%.
Can a Dimplex fireplace be easily relocated?
Yes! Unlike gas fireplaces, which require venting fuel pipelines, a Dimplex fireplace just needs to be unplugged! When you need a change you can move it to a different room and when you move to a new home you can take your investment with you.
Will a Dimplex fireplace provide warmth and comfort in any room - large or small?
Dimplex fireplaces distribute a warm, gentle, even heat over a wide area by means of a silent fan-forced heater. It will produce about 5115 BTU of total heat.* So, working in conjunction with the home's primary heating system, Dimplex fireplaces are capable of taking the chill off just about any size room when required. *Most gas fireplaces produce over 20,000 BTU of heat in a single room while the average size home requires only 90,000 BTU to heat the entire house.
The flame looks so real. How does it work?
Dimplex has developed a patented technology which provides a realistic, wood-burning flame.
Will the Dimplex flame operate without heat?
Yes! The Dimplex flame and heater operate independently of each other. This means you can enjoy the ambiance of a realistic flame all year round! In many gas units, the flame cycles off as the room temperature rises and you lose the flame effect until the room cools down again. In smaller rooms, gas fireplaces can be off a lot of the time and in the warmer climates they may not come on at all unless the thermostat is set higher than the room temperature.
Can the flame be adjusted?
Yes. Dimplex fireplaces have controls that allow you to adjust the background light and speed of the flame to create an ambiance to suit any mood.
Can I set my fireplace up myself?
Many of our electric fireplace models simply plug into standard 120-volt outlets, but other units require more complicated installation that include hard-wiring. Dimplex fireplaces do not require any venting pipelines for fuel, but your installation plans may include building out a mantle for your firebox. Keep your skill level in mind when purchasing an electric fireplace, consider working with a local installer to get the focal point of your dreams – done correctly!
Where can I put a Dimplex fireplace?
You can put a Dimplex fireplace in just about any indoor area as long as it is clean and dry. Whether you want to add ambiance to your living room, family room, bedroom, kitchen, foyer or dining room, as long as there's an outlet, there's no problem! Dimplex fireplaces are perfect for single family homes, condominiums, apartments, mobile homes or cottages.
Are Dimplex fireplace safe?
Dimplex fireplaces have full electrical certification throughout North America for complete peace of mind. To ensure the safety of your family members, no combustible energy sources are used to produce the flame. This means that you never need to worry about oxygen depletion or carbon monoxide poisoning in your home. The glass remains cool to the touch to ensure children don't burn their hands on the glass. It also does not contribute to indoor moisture or mold concerns. Other features include impact resistant safety glass and safety cut out with reset controls.
Can I change the media in my wall mounted fireplace?
If the wall mounted fireplace you purchased has loose media such as glass pieces, stones or river rock, you can choose to replace this media with something else of your choosing. In order to ensure proper operation of the unit, please make sure the alternative media you choose is the same weight as the original media provided and that you are not using anything fine (such as sand) or liquid as it could get into the inner components and render the unit inoperable.
Can I put my TV over my fireplace?
It is always recommended that you check with the television manufacturer for any restrictions prior to installing your Dimplex fireplace to ensure all restrictions are met.
