Dimplex Electric Fires give you the opportunity to create the charm and warmth of an authentic fireplace to your home without the hassle of burning wood or coal in a traditional fireplace. Electric fireplaces are a lot easier to install than their wood-burning, coal or gas counterparts, but they are still just as attractive and atmospheric.

Dimplex, a Northern Ireland based electrical firm, were the first to produce electric fireplaces in the late 80s and early 90s. They are one of the most well-known companies in this field and their products are renowned for their quality.

Most people will choose to hire a professional to carry out the installation for their Dimplex electric fires for them. However, if you are proficient with DIY and you feel comfortable putting your new fireplace in by yourself you will not find the project too challenging. If you will be installing one of the many different ranges of Dimplex electric fires in your home, here are some tips to ensure that your installation goes smoothly.

Choose the Location

The first step is to decide where you want your fireplace to be installed. Perhaps you want to place it within a common gathering area so that everyone in the home can sit around and enjoy the warmth and light of the fireplace? Keep in mind that the fireplace must be installed near to a standard 120 volt electrical outlet so that you can plug it in. Don’t worry about venting, flues or chimneys, as Dimplex electric fires do not produce any fire or flames and therefore do not require any of these.

Take Measurements

Now you will need to measure the area where your Dimplex electric fires will be installed. Make sure that you read the manufacturer’s directions carefully for measuring so that you choose a fireplace with the right size requirements. If the measurements are not accurate then your fireplace will not fit into the space and will look awkward.

Follow the Instructions Carefully

Each of the different types of Dimplex electric fires will have its own unique installation instructions. Before you start, make sure that you have all of the tools and equipment that you need to get the job done. Follow the guidelines, performing each step carefully in order and ensuring that all of the screws are secure.

It is also a good idea to plug in the fireplace and test the light before starting the installation. This way, you can find out if you have a faulty model before you take too much time installing it.

Most Dimplex electric fires are easy to install with straight-forward instructions, meaning that once you have put it together you will be relaxing in front of your new fireplace sooner than you might think!
