I found this Faux Fireplace because I was remodeling my home. I grew up with a real wood burning fireplace with a Mantel, and loved it. Burn when I got married, our home had no real fireplace, so for 20 years I have done without. My Roaring Fire Fix was getting a Cabin in the Winter for a long weekend and having a fire. Well, that was okay, but I always missed the Winter Fireplace at Home growing up. Last Year we decided to build our Dream Home. We decided to modify our Family room into a Home Theatre, and I wanted a fireplace too.
So, . . . How do I get a Fireplace in a room with a Big Screen TV and all the equipment. You have to worry about producing Heat, and my wife always commented on our weekend getaways about it getting too Warm, so I looked around. My criteria were: 1) a VERY Realistic Fire effect; 2) Little or No heat production. I did not want a cheesy color wheel and plastic flames!
I came across the Dimplex OptiMyst Electric Fireplaces. I checked them out on You Tube, and was impressed. The Fire Effect is VERY Realistic. The Effect is generated by water vapor and lighting, so the effect is random, and the only heat is from the light bulbs. You actually can reach right into the "Flame" and all you will feel is warm moist air. So, . . . Realistic, CHECK! Little or No Heat Production, CHECK! AND, is DOES HAVE a HEATER if you want to turn it on.
Because I was having a Mantel created I opted for the Fireplace Insert, rather than a whole Fireplace including Mantel, (which Dimplex also sells).Read more ›
The cons for this item are that it is basically sheet metal so you may have to tweek it for that "custom" fit depending on the size of area you have available. Lastly, the light from the center flame tends to bleed through and you'll see an "ambient" orange line on your ceiling.
Great product though, highly recommended.
It is an insert but an encasement/mantel can be easily built. We used teak on top and wire mesh framed in teak for the sides to aid ventilation. It's a very cool addition to our home.
Also the company from which it was purchased was prompt, attentive and accurate with answers to our questions concerning the fireplace and shipping info.
It has truly exceeded our expectations.
We very much enjoy the option of a lot of heat, low heat, or no heat while the 'flame' and 'embers' remain constant. We find our dogs napping in front of it! Comes with a remote too.

I purchased for $400.00 a heater in 2013, 3 days before my warranty was to expire, the heater shorted out, which could have caused a fire in my home. Read morePublished on January 24, 2014 by Anne McClintock
Excelent product. Very real flame. Hopefully it is going to last. A little bit pricy but the quality seems high.Published on December 14, 2013 by Alex
