Things to Love:
Heating in Style
Though Dimplex Opti-Myst electric fireplaces are rightfully known for their realism, they’re also quite effective when it comes to warming a space. Many models of the opti-myst come with an optional heater that packs 5,000 BTUs and can easily warm about 400 square feet no matter the configuration — they come as a bookcase mantel, a built-in model, an electric log insert, cassette inserts, or even a plug-in electric stove. Once you know which type of electric fireplace you prefer, you can further customize its look down to the last detail with Dimplex media kits. Try mixing and matching different styles of river rock and driftwood for a variety of aesthetics, and don’t forget that some models also come with patented Inner-Glow electric logs molded from real wood for authenticity.
Simply put, Dimplex’s patented Opti-Myst technology creates one of the most realistic flame and smoke effects we’ve ever seen. Here’s how it works: Ultrasonic sound waves generate a fine mist of water inside the unit, which reflects light from a bright bulb hidden within the electric fireplace. The light from the water molecules then appears to dance and lick the logs, creating a mind-bending recreation of a real wood fire. As if that wasn’t convincing enough, the mist rises just like smoke to complete the lifelike illusion, and some models even produce the sound of a crackling fire.
The flame effect is also three-dimensional, meaning you can take in the cozy feeling of a wood-burning fire from any angle. All you need is electricity and a bit of water, which sits in a reservoir that provides about 14–17 hours of flame effect when full. Thanks to this economic and efficient powering method, you can operate Dimplex Opti-Myst electric fireplaces for only pennies per hour.
Built for Safety
Because these units don’t contain actual flames, they run without giving off harmful emissions and remain safe for small children to be around. They also don’t alter the humidity level of your indoor space or remove oxygen from the air in the way a wood-burning fire does. Overall, Dimplex has created an electric fireplace that’s completely safe and ideal for residential or commercial applications. And while the included remote doesn’t address a safety issue, it’s nice to be able to adjust the heat, flames, or smoke effects from the comfort of your couch.
Things to Consider:
The water reservoir that feeds the Opti-Myst flame technology system must be refilled with distilled water every 14–17 hours of operating time. Make sure to use distilled water rather than tap water, which has certain impurities that can shorten the longevity of your unit.
