Electric Fireplace Suite

A large fireplace with a mantle gives a special effect in any room. There are two parts, an electric fireplace insert framed by a faux mantle. The mantle is often made of MDF board with a romantic motif that creates an exclusive look.

The electric fire with mantle often offers several options when it comes to the flame. There are several inserts that can be fit in the mantle, but also different flame effects. If you prefer a regular, relaxing orange flame, you can easily choose this on the fireplace. If you the next day prefer flames of different colours, you can change to a different look.

Built-in Electric Fireplace

Built-in electric fires are becoming increasingly popular as homeowners seek modern, efficient heating solutions. With advancements in housing technology, newer homes are designed to be more heat-efficient, reducing the reliance on traditional fireplaces. This shift in demand has led to significant innovations in the design and functionality of built-in electric fireplaces.

In recent years, built-in electric fireplaces have undergone remarkable advancements, reaching a new level of technology and realism. Gone are the days of artificial-looking flames; today's electric fireplaces offer incredibly authentic flame effects that closely mimic the appearance of real wood-burning fires.

One notable development in electric fireplace design is the availability of models with glass sides. These glass-sided fireplaces offer a modern and sleek aesthetic, allowing for unobstructed views of the captivating flames from multiple angles. The addition of glass sides not only enhances the visual appeal of the fireplace but also contributes to its versatility, as it can be installed in a variety of locations within a room.

Wall-Mounted Electric Fireplace

An electric, wall-mounted fire is one of our most popular product types. This is because you can install the fireplace in areas that could not accommodate a regular fireplace. For example, apartments or houses too small to fit a chimney.

Wall-mounted electric fireplaces are also best-selling. The price is generally affordable and installation is often simple. Also, they are often sold in more colours than just black and white. Black is a traditional colour for fireplaces. White has become popular for more minimalist decor. You can compare the installation of a wall-mounted electric fire can to mounting a TV wall bracket.

Wall-mounted electric fireplaces are available in many different lengths. Anything from 40 cm to 2,5 metres long. It can be difficult to find alternative fireplaces in bigger dimensions. The main reason for this is that heat emissions increase with size.

How does an electric fireplace work?

An electric fireplace works by using an LED screen or a rotating LED light effect, which creates the play of light that creates a look like real flames.

Newer technology has made it possible to creat more and more realistic flame effects using electricity. Among other things, Dru Fires has developed an advanced 3D technology that creates realistic crackling flames, and Dimplex has developed Opti-Myst technology, which is used in hybrid fireplaces and which creates beautiful dancing flames.

The heating element found in most electric fireplaces works by drawing cold air into the fireplace, which is then heated by means of a heating coil and the heated air is then gently forced out into the room again by means of a fan.

Some electric fireplaces instead use infrared technology to create heat. It works by converting electricity into radiant heat, which heats objects in space.

How much heat does an electric fireplace provide?

There is no single answer to the question of how much heat an electric fireplace creates, as it differs from a fireplace in both which heating method is used and how much the individual electric fireplace can heat. In addition, the space in which the electric fireplace heats and how well insulated and large it is also has a great influence on how much heat is created.

However, you can see the heat output of the individual fireplace in the product description, this can help to give a good indication of the heating effect of the fireplace.

As a starting point, however, an electric fireplace cannot be used as a primary heat source, but must instead be used for cozy and radiant heat. The fireplace must therefore help to supplement the warmth in the home and, at the same time, create a cozy fireplace atmosphere.

Do electric fireplace use a lot of electricity?

Most LED fireplaces come with a heating element, but most can also "burn" without the heating effect turned on. Whether the heating element is switched on has an effect on how much power the fireplace uses.

But as a starting point, an electric fireplace will use approx. the same amount of power as a regular electric radiator. An electric fireplace consumes approx. 1,5 kW.

If the heating power is switched on, the kW of the power will be added. This means that if you have turned on the fireplace's heat on at 1,8 kW, it will consume a total of approx. 3,3 kW.

What type of electric LED fireplaces should you choose?

Which electric fireplace you should choose depends very much on your needs and what look you want it to have. So you must first find out where you want your new LED fireplace. There are electric fireplaces for installation in several different ways and with different expressions.

Among other things, you can get electric fireplaces that look like classic English mantel fireplaces or electric built-in tunnel fireplaces. The possibilities are many, so do not be afraid to dream big!

What does an electric fireplace cost to run?

An electric LED fireplace that does not have a heating effect on will cost approx. 0.06-0.08 DKK to have driving per hour - this of course depends on the price of electricity.

An electric fireplace with the heating effect on will cost a little more. As a rule of thumb, it will look like this:

  • 1 kW, will approx. increase consumption by £0.23 per hour = approx. £0.29 - 0.31 per hour.
  • 1.5 kW will approx. increase consumption by £0.34 per hour = approx. £0.4 - 0.42 per hour.
  • 2 kW will approx. increase consumption by £0.45 per hour = approx. £0.51 - 0.53 per hour.

Electric fireplace - Wood burning stove without chimney

Another type of electric fireplace that is really popular is electric wood stoves - that is, an electric fireplace that looks like a classic old wood stove. With an electric wood-burning stove, you get a cozy look from a wood-burning stove, but without having to connect a chimney, without having to split or buy firewood and without having to bother with cleaning. Just plug the cord into the electrical outlet and turn on the fireplace.
