Fireplaces / October 15, 2018 / Laurine Pickens.
Of the thirty most popular fireplace brands, there are some exciting styles and materials used today. For anyone thinking that the fireplace is large the same thing it has always been, with few improvements or changes in methods, nothing could be farther from the truth.
Interestingly, as the fireplace becomes smaller and more attention has become fixated on the mantelpiece, the styling of the modern fireplace have tended to focus on smaller areas, rather than the sweeping design changes of the past centuries.
The Dimplex fireplace company offers many electric fireplace models that include all the style of traditional fireplaces with the convenience of push-button fireplace heating. The Newport model, for example, provides a romantic ambiance of a fireplace without any of the work or danger of having a wood burning fire.
Since no venting required for electric fireplaces, these types of fires can an installed anywhere. The Dimplex company uses what the call “electric flame” to produce realistic flame technology with a wide range of style options.
One nice thing about the electric flame fireplaces made by the Dimplex company is that you can have the look of a fire with or without the heat. Since you can choose heat or no heat, these fireplaces are perfect for running any time of the year that you want that fire ambiance.
If you do opt for the heat producing variety of electric fire, the Newport model provides up to 5000 BTU / hour of radiating heat. Though it can be nice to have a fireplace that doesn’t necessarily put off heat, it can also be a great option to have some localized heat for the colder days in the year. The radiating heat produced by this electric fireplace a circulated with the aid of a fan.
This model of electric fireplace also includes an adjustable thermostat that will keep the heat output of the fire within your comfort zone. It means that you do not have to continually keep an eye on the fireplace or the heat it puts out. It is just another advantage to having an electric stove, as wood burning fireplaces must be under constant supervision.
The glass that covers the fireplace will remain safe to the touch whether the heat is not being produced or is going full blast. It makes the fireplace particularly safe for children and pets to be around.
Another advantage of electric fireplaces is that they do not contribute to moisture problems as many un-vented gas fireplaces tend to do. Of course, adding heat to your home, in general, will tend to dry out the air, and you may find the need for a humidifier during the coldest months of the year.
