What's so good about an electric fire?


1. Dimplex electric fires are easy to install – you literally just plug it in and off you go! There’s also no need for disruptive pipe work as you do not need a chimney or a fireplace, so they’re hassle free too.

2. They’re a safer alternative. If you’ve got small children or pets, you aren’t exposing them to open flames (Of course, we always encourage safety around any type of electric device!) You also won’t need to worry about them causing carbon monoxide poisoning which is an obvious plus in our books.

3. They’re energy efficient. Dimplex said it best themselves – “All Dimplex Optiflame and Opti-myst fires are 100% efficient at point of use, so no heat is wasted helping to reduce your carbon emissions.” How can you argue with that? Point proven.

4. They’re so easy to use – really! No more waiting around for ages for your room to warm up – switch it on (many even have a remote control, and voila, you’re all done.

What is an Opti-Myst Electric Fire and Why Do I Need it?


Opti-myst electric fires are basically the closest thing you can get to a real fire – without it being real fire. The three-dimensional Opti-myst flame effect uses water mist and coloured lighting to create the amazing illusion of real smoke and flames. It provides that cosy, winter evening feel, all year round. We’ll bet you that your guests will genuinely mistake it for a real fire. You fancy pants, you. (We won’t tell if you don’t.) This state of the art, electric fire is a simple way to add warmth to you room – with dramatic results.

What is an Optiflame Electric Fire?


“The Optiflame range has truly revolutionised home heating as technology is fused with the most traditional aspects of life. The patented technology simulates an illusion of flames emanating from the centre of an enhanced depth fuel bed.”

Optiflame electric fires are a ‘more traditional and cost effective 2D flame effect’. So if you’re looking for a soft glow, alongside a realistic ‘flame’ (perhaps on a lower budget too!) an Optiflame electric fire is the one you need. Plug it in and you’re good to go!
