There’s nothing quite like the effect of a fire. It creates a wonderful feeling of comfort and cosiness. But open fires can be inconvenient and messy. Likewise if installing a gas fire you need to consider flue and gas connection constraints, the permanency and cost of installation and the need for annual servicing.

What is the Optiflame fire effect?
Optiflame® is the world’s most popular electric flame effect, and can be found in a wide selection of Dimplex fires. It is a unique, patented means of generating realistic simulated flames from an electric source and creates the illusion of flames emanating from the centre of an enhanced depth fuel bed to provide a realistic glow that can be enjoyed throughout the whole year.
Dimplex revolutionised the fires market when we launched the first Optiflame® effect in 1988 and since then have consistently refined and improved it to the level of perfection that you see today. As a result, they have won numerous awards for their fires and they have also been selected to feature on a number of mainstream TV home interest programmes and in feature pieces at home interest shows.

What is the difference between an inset fire and a freestanding fire?
An inset fire requires a fireplace opening or wall cavity behind it or a rebated fire surround in order to install the fire. The freestanding style of fire is very easy to install, sits flat against the wall and does not require a cavity behind it, however many of our inset fires also come with a compact spacer which allows the fire to be freestanding or fitted flat to the wall.
Can I operate the flame effect on the fire without the heat?
All our Optiflame and Opti-myst fires can be operated on a flame-effect only setting, as can the flickering flame effect on our freestanding bar fires.
Is the flame effect expensive to run?
No, to run the flame effect involves powering light bulbs and a small electric motor and in most cases costs no more than a couple of pence an hour. Some of our fires have LED lamps fitted which are even more energy efficient.
Can I change the fuel bed on my fire?
Selected models come with a choice of fuel bed whilst with others a different fuel bed can be purchased as an accessory. Please see individual product pages for details.
Are your fires easy to install?
The majority of our fires come with a fitted plug and simply connect to a 13amp socket. The only fires that require any kind of installation are the wall mounted fires, which require fixing or insetting into the wall.
